Guestbook comments from the owner

Brenda and Dave run a tight ship looking after 3 gites in beautiful Aubas, near Montignac in France. We stayed in the middle sized one which sleeps up to 8 people and it was a lovely place for us to stay for 12 days. The kids loved the space, the table tennis and the pool and we loved opening our blue shutters every morning and looking out onto the cornfield below. It really felt very tranquil there. Brenda and Dave did everything they could to provide us with assistance and information. I really recommend this place to families or large groups wanting to book all 3 gites out together. I would go back there. 5* Rating

October stay at Villa Hibiscus

  • 5 of 5

The house and property were absolutely lovely. Villa Hibiscus was so comfortable and we had everything we needed. Brenda and David were the best hosts and had great advice for all sorts of our questions. This place, just outside of Montignac and beside the Vezere River, was perfect.

Great location beautiful properties.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was great catering for all our needs, the location was a peaceful spot right on the rivers edge with fishing available or just to wander. The facilities were good with table tennis and a swimming pool for the more energetic but still room to escape and just read a book. We were warmly welcomed and well looked after by our hosts David and Brenda who were always on hand but never intrusive and gave sound advice on where to visit and tips about events in the area. Would definitely recommend for groups like ours of 12 adults or indeed for family holidays where you can come together and yet still do your own thing.

A wonderful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful and peaceful spot right on the river with great facilities. While some could be playing table tennis and others swimming, there was still room to escape and look out for kingfishers darting along the banks of the river. We were warmly welcomed and well looked after including sound advice on where to visit on our way home and tips about events in the area. Would definitely recommend for an extended family holiday where you can come together and yet still do yuur own thing.

A Fabulous week -with 7 families together

  • 5 of 5

We're a bit late writing this as we were there for a week in August 2014.

7 families holidaying together for the first time! We had a really lovely time & many thanks to Brenda & David who were able to recommend where to go & what to see but also as they really just let us get on with our own thing! We self catered including several BBQs as the setting at La Four a Sel is just beautiful. We may well return one day!

Rural France at its best.

  • 5 of 5

We had glorious weather which added to our enjoyment in Villa Hibiscus. We were a party of four adults and two children and so the house and amenities were perfect for us. Hibiscus was clean and very well equipped and as days were hot and evenings chilly the wood burning stove was much appreciated. The walk to the restaurant in Aubas was delightful. Brenda and David were very welcoming and helpful and we unreservedly recommend Le Four a Sel.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Brenda and David are exceptional hosts who always made sure we were comfortable and had a great time. They have a superb property by the river with a swimming pool. We could do barbecues, strolls and even dance all night long- what a perfect weekend! It was very clean and spacious. I strongly recommend.

Location

From the Owner

We came to Montignac with our 2 children on a family holiday in 2001. The kids loved the area-there was so much to see and do and always there was something new to experience and discover. We did this for 7 years , then we found Le Four a Sel fell in love with it and decided to make it our home We love the peaceful rural setting,the wonderful sense of freedom this large expanse of space our property gives us and being beside the river is just so relaxing . And we are still in awe of the stunning scenery of this part of the Dordogne.We still get pleasantly surprised when we drive around and stumble upon a quaint village , a hidden castle.
