The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
The village of Montignac is in the Perigord Noir, a region rich in prehistoric sites, not least the famous Lascaux caves. Four boys looking for a dog discovered the caves in 1940, and they opened to the public in 1948, quickly becoming one of France's major attractions and drawing 125,000 visitors annually. However, the hordes of tourists caused atmospheric changes in the caves, endangering the paintings. Scientists went to work to halt the deterioration, known as "the green sickness." Since then, the Lascaux cave, the “Sistine chapel of prehistoric art”‚ is closed to the general public to prevent deterioration, but the Lascaux II cave is an excellent replica, which gives you a clear picture of the remarkable works, with paintings of bison, horses and reindeer.
The village of Montignac is built on both sides of the river Vezere. On the right bank is the feudal town with its narrow streets, its half-timbered houses from the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries, its old washing places and foutains made in limestone. On the left bank the village with its convent and its priory reminds us that formerly Montignac was a terminus river port and an important commercial place. Thanks to the great numbers of small rivers joining the Vezere, mills are also part of the landscape and are more than 60.
The towns of Perigueux, Brive and Sarlat are only half an hour drive away. Périgueux the capital town of the Perigord and the cultural heart of the Dordogne, is an hospitable little town with a lively Wednesday and Saturday market, a veritable feast of restaurants and cafés, and a tranquil rural setting, so typical of the region.
Medieval Sarlat itself is a maze of ancient and arcaded lanes, whose ochre stone buldings have now been declared a living museum. Among the notables are the Cathedrale St. Sacerdos and the Lanterne des Morts tower. The Saturday morning market in the Place de la Liberté is a must.
The Montignac area
Cycling, rambling, pony trekking and canoeing make this area a fine choice for a family holiday.
In Montignac the International Folk / Dance Festival is held annually in July. In addition there are many classical music recitals held nearby - notable at St. Leon- sur-Vezere and Saint-. Armand de Coly.
