Guestbook comments from the owner
3 generations of our family, including 5 children, stayed in Villa Orchidee at Le Four a Sel for 2 weeks. The kids loved the pool (which was clean) and all improved their swimming, while the grown ups soaked up the sun. The trees giving much needed shade, as we were there during a heatwave. Some of the men had several early morning sortees to the river, which is at the bottom of the garden, for fishing. We ate lunch and our evening meal in the outside dining area, which was great and made use of the Wi Fi hub located there. The kids made full use of the table tennis and the play area. Brenda and Dave were very friendly and helpful with local information . The property is perfectly situated for trips to local attractions, such as the various Grottes(caves),the beautiful Dordogne river and pretty towns such as Montignac and Domme. The restaurant La Table D'Aubas is just 10 mins walk away in the nearby village of Aubas.Great food and really good value.The house wine is from a vineyard run by a friend of theirs in Bordeaux and is excellent. Pierre ,the owner,speaks good English too. Brenda and Dave helped us pre book our food for our visit on the last night so we did'nt swamp them but they did very well catering for 16 of us.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 ! :)

RUSTIC CHARM, PEACEFUL

  • 4 of 5
The owners were full of information and great hospitality. The house was quaint and rustic. The property very peaceful and beautiful with access to a playground, river, games, and ping pong table. It made a great family get away. Very close to Lascaux and other wonderful sites. The area is full of things to do for the whole family and signs make it easy to find your way. Only one issue was no hot water part of the time, but the owners were quick to make it right. I would visit here again!!

Owner's Response: There was a power cut in the middle of the night when everyone,including us ,were asleep . As we were unaware of this, we were unable to override the automatic timer and set it to manually heat the tank . Hence when the customers woke up the next day, there was no hot water. We quickly overrode the timer,and set it to manually heat up the tank . Living onsite enables us to rectify any problems immediately to our client's satisfaction. As the customer says, " we were quick to put it right" .Their review shows they thoroughly enjoyed their stay with us and would definitely want to return again.
