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
