Brenda and David are wonderful hosts. They communicated with us the closer we got to our arrival. Brenda and David and their friendly dog Kayla warmly welcomed us, and made us feel at home. They are in an idyllic setting along the Vézère river, and close to the nearby village of Montignac. Perfect location for family reunions and for visits to Lascaux. Our rooms were very comfortable, cozy and clean. Brenda fixed us a scrumptious breakfast, and kept us company. We hope to visit the region again and stay at Brenda and David's.

We first came to Montignac for our family summer holiday 10 years ago. We came every year for 7 years and on the 8th year, we bought Le Four a Sel and made it our home in 2008.Formerly an 18th century farmstead , it was converted into holiday homes and bed and breakfast in 2000 . We enjoy meeting people , receiving guests and helping holiday makers make the most of their travel experience here. We love sharing our knowledge of the local area
