Why Brenda Archer chose Montignac
We have been going to Montignac for our family holidays for 7 years. We loved it so much that on our 3rd year we started to look for a property in the area to buy. We found Le Four a Sel on our 8th year whilst on holiday and fell in love with it.
What makes this house unique
Excellent rural Location- peaceful and secluded yet walking distance to a bakery /bar/restaurant for your daily morning baguettes & croissants , shops and supermarkets are just 10 minutes drive . Close enough to Montignac for one to walk in across the fields or along the back roads. Sites & attractions like Sarlat are just 30 minutes away - a perfect base to discover the Dordogne.
Space! Lots of it - 15 acres of land for the children to run around in and expel all that excess energy. And still so much left for anyone to find their own private corner and get away from it all . You will never feel cramped in this property.
Stunning setting -beside the river lined with tall poplar trees and magnificent views of cornfields from the bedroom window. Though we are by the river, both the swimming pool and the river are protected by a fence and gate to keep children safe.
Private Fishing onsite- Half a kilometre of river frontage for one to indulge in a favourite sport from dawn to dusk.
Onsite facilities provide sufficient amusement for everyone: adults and children alike- no need to go sight seeing everyday.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Really enjoyed our stay with Brenda and David. They have a fantastic place on the banks of the river Vezere. It is a quiet 3km bike ride to Montignac which is a lovely smallish town with plenty of shops and cafes right on the river. Down stream from Montignac are all the prehistoric sites for which this area is famed. Le Four a Sel provides spacious accommodation for an extended group - we were a large family group ranging in age between 3 and 80. The teenagers loved the pool and the table tennis table and the space near the river to play football and we all enjoyed communal meals in the covered seating area in the courtyard. There is a farm nearby selling fresh milk and during the summer months there is a "night market" one evening a week in the local village, Aubas, a short walk away across the bridge over the river, with a small restaurant/bar/grocers shop and acts as the local bread depot where you can order bread. The facilities were great We were there for one week but there is plenty to do for longer. We took our own canoe and you can launch from the riverbank at the property - there is a little landing stage. You can canoe up river from the property towards Chateau Sauve Boeuf . Altogether a great spot - we would love to go back.
