Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

Poppies French Country Cottage is located on the very edge of the charming small village of Saint Front la Riviere (24300) in the Northern Dordogne and 3km inside the Limousin National Park. It is a beautiful area known as the Perigord Vert due to it dense forests and has many quaint and pretty villages and towns within a short drive. Brantome (15mins), is known as the Venice of the Perigord with the River Dronne encircling the island town and with its huge Abbey on its banks - a very pretty place. Canoeing is a popular leisure activity here in Summer and they can be rented by the hour in the town. Nontron (15 mins) and Thiviers (20 mins), both large market towns are close by. Perigueux, the Region capital, is only a 30mins drive and has an abundance of shops and restaurants and the beautiful cathedral of St Front modelled on the Sacre Coeur in Paris - it was designed by the same architect.

St Front la Riviere

On your door step is Saint Front la Riviere which has marked walks/cycle paths and a lovely walk from the rear of Poppies takes you past 4 chateau with a refreshment stop at the local cafe/bar the Relais de La Dronne. The village also boasts a pretty and old church. The local area is full of wildlife with deer and wild boar and is also on the migration route for many bird species - the sight of 100s of cranes flying in formation overhead is quite something to see and Kites/Eagles nest nearby and are often seen circling at the rear of the cottage. The next village at only 3km distance is the much larger Saint Pardoux la Riviere. This has a small range of shops with 2 butchers, 2 bakers, 3 restaurants/bars and a supermarket with fuel. Also in the village is an excellent medical centre and 2 chemists.
