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.

*swimming pool (fenced and alarmed)-10m x 4m

*Table Tennis in a covered play area (handy during inclement weather).

*Outdoor playground equipped with football and badminton net, swings,slide, wooden playhouse, climbing frame;

* Covered Terrace with tables and chairs to seat up 30 so you can enjoy al fresco dining in the shade and BBQ's whatever the weather

*Enclosed courtyard for Boules or Badminton;

*Free Wifi.

*Lots of parking for at least 12 cars , more if required.

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.

50th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

You know when you dream of the perfect day,well this was it.The location was fantastic as we needed to accommodate 22 people from 3 continents.This is an ideal place for large groups as there are plenty of rooms,kitchens and bathrooms and loads of outside space should you need some downtime from the group.There is so much to see in the surrounding area and you never have to venture very far for a day out.The town Montignac is close with a good supermarket,bakery,cafes and places to eat. David and Brenda are the ideal hosts.They helped find a chef for the lunch,were there when we needed help and information,always with a smile.

The photos on the website don't sell this place enough!! beautiful property and grounds.

the owners Brenda and David were fantastic hosts, there for us when we needed it but not over bearing. The pool was a good size especially for new swimmers like me. The property is in walking distance to a lovely town of Montignac and far enough to enjoy the beautiful countryside. the accommodation was perfect really can not fault our stay at all, the only downfall was having to go home at the end.

We decided with friends of mine to discover Perigord as whe want. I'm french coming from Alsace and to my mind this holidays were perfect. Guests are always ready to take care of you. Property was perfectly located, quiet along the Vezere, where you can fish. The region is beautiful, our stay was partitioned between relaxing at the pool, fishing, visiting the area and eat barbecue in the evening. Everything is within reach, it remains only to enjoy and relax.

The villa was perfect for all private bathroom for each bedroom, large living room, very comfortable.

The perfect holiday, thank you to our hosts for this sweet stay in Périgord

France at its' best

  • 5 of 5

We had a warm welcome and a wonderful holiday at Le Four a sel.

For my family fo 14 ,the property, grounds and facilities were ideal for our holiday,especially for the young children who could play in the play area with the freedom to enjoy themselves.

The main Gite and courtyard suited our every need.

Our visit to the waterpark was a great success,with the rides and water activities suitable for both children and adults.

The nearby town of Montignac was also a bonus with all the colourful bunting in the streets.

Once again a big thank you to you both and your family for a great holiday.

Très Bonne Adresse !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné une semaine au "Four à sel" cet été avec trois autres couples d'amis qui avaient eux aussi de jeunes enfants.

Nous avons tous été emballés par le lieu, idéal pour les enfants qui ont pu profiter des espaces de jeux mis à leur disposition, mais aussi pour les parents qui ont pu profiter du charme et du calme de l'endroit pour se reposer, cela sans parler de la piscine qui a fait l'unanimité chez les petits comme chez les grands.

Il y a plein de choses à faire et à voir autour.

Enfin, David et Brenda sont des hôtes à la fois charmants et prévenants.

Bref, nous avons passé une superbe semaine.

Amazing place to stay in Dordogne

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed here with 8 adults and 7 children during a wonderful week. The house is very nice, the rooms have a lot of space, and we took advantage of the spacious garden and courtyard. Moreover, the countryside and surroundings are so beautifull to visit.

We've spent a week there that we won't never forget ! :)
