3 bedroomed property with river frontage, walking distance to Dordogne village
About Sarah Tothill
Nic and I moved with our daughter to France in 2013. We loved the lifestyle, weather and location of our lovely property, which we have lovingly restored. We love to offer tips and advice on visiting the area, and are always on hand if needed.
Sarah Tothill purchased this House in 2013
Why Sarah Tothill chose Corgnac-sur-l'Isle
Peyre St Front is an old masters house, and has plenty of characterful features. Based in the famous Perigord Vert region of the Dordogne, with access to many attractions, such as chateaux, lakes, local markets and beautiful countryside. We love the fact that all our guests can benefit from the large grounds and direct access to the river L'Isle. Most of our guests choose to eat and cook outside on the well equipped terrace which overlooks the pool, wildlife and river beyond. We are in easy reach of both Bergerac and Limoges airports - lots of historic chateaux are in the area and there is always a market on close by. The locals are really friendly and the village is extremely well kept, with beautiful walks along the river bank. We love exploring the area through a range of marked walkways.
What makes this House unique
The best bit, is that you can easily walk into the well kept local village, to get your bread coffee or chocolate in the morning - The sports bar is always a welcoming place to grab an early aperatif and the local restaurant offers home cooked french cuisine. On hand is a pharmacy and english seeking Dr for any emergency. The village also holds many events such as the Duck night in July, the Moules and frites night in August and a massive brocante at the end of August.

We had a lovely week here - 2 adults and 8 and 6 yr old girls. Excellent communication from Sarah. House, garden and outdoor pool were lovely, with a river flowing at the bottom of the garden. Village was just minutes walk away with plenty to see and do in the surrounding area (car essential). This was our third time to this area and we will be back again!
Hi Kevin - thanks for your comments - I’m so pleased you had a great time here - thanks for being great guests!
Great gite and hosts. Recommended
Hi Gordon and party. Thanks for the great review. We really enjoyed having you stay with us and pleased you had such a great holiday. Thanks again for the little parcel of chicken for Honey and Sansa and also for leaving the gite in tip top condition. We'd love to see you again if you ever plan to visit this area - hope you all had a safe journey home x
The Perfect Gite!
My family of six adults had a brilliant time and Sarah and Nic were so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The gite had the perfect accommodation for us and we loved the pool, garden and field which we used for playing French cricket. It was so lovely to have the outside kitchen and eat every meal in the fresh air. We loved the velorail, visits to the evening food market at Perigeaux, Brantomes, St. Jean de Coles, Jumilhac Le Grand and Hautefort. We won't forget being there when France won the football World Cup. It was great to hear the cheering villagers when France scored and the subsequent scooter horns!! Thank you Sarah and Nic.
Thanks Anna - so pleased you all had a great time and enjoyed your stay with us - we certainly enjoyed having you all!!
Sarah Nic Honey and Sansa!!!
Beautiful, tranquil gite with lots to do close by
We are so pleased that we booked this beautiful gite for our honeymoon. We were made to feel so welcome by Sarah and Nic, and the information they gave us before our arrival ensured that it was easy to find and settle in to. The gite felt like a home away from home. It had everything we needed for our stay and such a lovely character, with its wooden staircases and cosy wood burner in the front room. We loved sitting out in the garden in the evenings by the pool and enjoying such a peaceful place. Sarah and Nic had given us lots of different ideas for things to do locally as well. We kayaked down the Dordogne, visited beautiful Perigueux, and the velorail is definitely something we would recommend! Thank you Sarah and Nic!
Thanks Amy and John, we were so pleased you enjoyed your honeymoon at our gite and you enjoyed such good weather too! Thanks for your lovely comments!
Beautiful gite and pool near a lively village
We stayed for a week at this lovely property. The pool was a welcome relief from the hot weather. We used the outside terrace for all our cooking and enjoyed the views over the meadow. We tried many of the gourgeous restaurants in the area, plenty of markets to visit, and attractions for days out. We particularly loved St Jean and the restaurant over looking the chateau. Definitely recommend staying here for a true taste of France.
Thanks for the great review, we loved having you all and giving you ideas on activities to make your holiday exciting. We hope you come and stay with us again - the big event down by the river is always mid august so pop it in your diary! Sarah Nic and Antonia
Petit coin de paradis
We are so pleased to have found this delightful old French house which has been refurbished and very tastefully decorated/furnished to a high standard. Even better, its just a short walk to picturesque Corgnac which has restaurants, café-bars, and a few shops that reinforce the feeling of being part of rural village life.
There is so much to do, places to visit, sights to see – we wished we could stay for a month. After busy days out it was always good to return to the house to relax. Most evening , after a dip in the pool, we enjoyed cooking /eating on the covered terrace followed by a peaceful stroll down the garden to the river.
Sarah and Nic are the perfect hosts and we are grateful to them for telling us about all the best places to visit, eat etc. They have the perfect holiday home too !!
Hi John and Carolyn - thanks so much for the great review - we would love to welcome you again to stay with us - maybe next time you can come along to attend the village festival in July!!
