Saint Cyprien is a small town in the French countryside, a two and a half hour drive east of Bordeaux. It has a beautiful old town which winds uphill towards the 12th century belltower and the abbey church, which dominate the town. Situated above the River Dordogne, it makes a perfect base for visiting the fabulous castles, beautiful villages and lovely scenery that this section of the Dordogne is famous for.
