Peaceful village in idyllic setting

The village of Champagnac la Rivière (or Champagnac la Riviere), which lies in the lush green Limousin region of central France, provides a tranquil and friendly retreat set in the most delightful countryside. The village is peaceful but not, by any means, boring.

Pig and Cider Day

There are a number of typically French small shops, including a boulangerie for that essential baguette, grocers and butchers, and even a pizzeria which also has a bar, to ensure that your social life doesn't suffer! And if you're looking for a little local colour, try to be in the village for its special fête, the quaintly named "Pig and Cider Day!"

Parc Naturel du Perigord

The real glory of Champagnac la Rivière, however, lies in its surroundings. The village is located in the beautiful Parc Naturel du Perigord, a forested national park with abundant wildlife. Beyond this is the typically lush, fertile land of Limousin, said by some to be reminiscent of the Cotswolds.
