The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
The Dordogne is offering attractions guaranteed to satisfy all tastes. Castles, caves, history and prehistory, food and wine, and the amazing nature is making this a place, where you won't have enough time. The VÃ©zÃ¨rere valley contains 147 prehistoric sites dating from the Palaeolithic and 25 decorated caves, and is part of the UNESCO world heritage sites. Visit romantic places like Sarlat in the evening, discover the abbey at Saint Amand de Coly, a stop on the St. Jacob's Pilgrims Trail, while a rehearsal for the Classical Music Festival is going on, dine at Layotte in Tursac and enjoy a substantial home cooked meal with wild flowers and fern salad, visit some of the well - at least 1,500 castles, or paddle past an ancient cliff dwelling in a canoe - there is plenty to do and even more to see!
The Montignac area
Montignac is with 2,800 inhabitants a small market town in the South-West of France, mainly known for the famous Lascaux caves. The "Sistine Chapel of Prehistory" with its remarkable cave paintings is just straight up the road. This is a small, charming town with a castle towering over historic quarters with cobbled lanes on both sides of the river. Banks, shops, restaurants and supermarkets, a news agent and markets are all in walking distance. Try and tune in with the locals and enjoy a fresh croissant in the morning or chill out with an aperitif in one of the close cafes and bars in the evening. For nature lovers, there are several walking paths and you can also hire bikes or canoes. Montignac is the perfect starting point to visit the area. Sarlat, Les Eyzies, Hautefort, Beynac or Castelnaud are just 20-45 min. by car.

We stayed one night in August as part of a trip to Dordogne. My husband, teenage son and I slept in the large room which was very comfortable and well appointed. the bathroom (on floor below and shared with one other room) is also very large and well appointed and a fridge and kettle with tea/coffee is also provided. The location, right in centre of Montignac but very quiet, was very convenient for Lascaux caves and the owner is very knowledgeable about the area and its prehistoric remains and was very helpful with suggestions and bookings. A selection of breads and jams was provided for breakfast. Evening meal is not provided but we found a very nice restaurant right on the river a short walk away.
It was a pleasure to have such wonderful guests!

Les Glycines is a lovingly but understatedly decorated b&b, owned by a host with great local knowledge. It's right in the center of Montignac but in a dead quiet street, near to all the shops and restaurants. Montignac itself is a great base from which to explore the Dordogne & Vezere region, with is pre-historic treasures, castles, outdoors opportunities and plentiful local produce.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you here as our guests!
