Possibly ... probably .... no, definitely the best Bed & Breakfast we have stayed in.  Way too brief! Lovely room, people and food.

A beautiful setting too.  We hope to come back, and will be telling others about "Le Montaigne"

Best wishes for the future.

accueil de Jane et Tony chaleureux chambre confortable petit déjeuner excellent village charmant endroit calme et agréable.

Lucien, France

The facilities were excellent. A good choice of tea coffee and biscuits in the room. The bed linen was ironed which was a change from several other places we had stayed. Tony and Jane were lovely hosts, very friendly and helpful and the breakfast excellent. The village of Saint Alvere was a gem.

Jane Crozer

Très bon accueil. Très bonne literie. Propreté de la chambre et de la salle d'eau irréprochables. Petit déjeuner très frais (croissants pain etc). Les habitants et les commercants du village sont très serviables et gentils. Village très beau à voir.

Soraya, France

Vraiment admirable !

  • Hôtes absolument charmants, chaleureux, discrets et disponibles, toujours prêts à partager un verre et quelques mots. Chambre parfaite, petit-déjeuner parfait, on sent un vrai plaisir de leur part. Séjour que l'on n'oublie pas.

EVERYTHING - what an amazing place to stay. It is better than the photos, yet exactly as photos show - no panoramic views. Absolute luxury to the max. Tastefully decorated throughout, in every part of the bedroom/bathroom. I almost didn't want to get in the bed, it was so well decorated and the linen so luxurious and fluffy and comfy and clean. I slept like a log all night (unusual when away from home). The shower was nice with enough room to do what was needed. The towels were super huge and fluffy - heaven! Having a jug in the room was an added bonus. Loved the cat! The breakfast - scrambled eggs were so delicious, juice, croissants, pain au chocolat, bread, meats, cheese, spreads, water, tea/coffee (and that's only what I had). I did see more food but was so satisfied that I didn't need to look further. The hosts were super friendly and casual about everything. We spoke for a couple of hours before leaving and felt like we'd known them for ages, so easy to talk to - thank you Jane and Tony. Best stay we've had ever! A credit to you both.

  • The only complaint is that our stay was not long enough. LOVE THIS PLACE.

Tout etait parfait, le lieu les propriétaires, la chambre et le petit déjeuner. C est aménagé avec beaucoup de gout, c est un endroit charmant.

Charlotte D, France.

Le Montaigne es un "bed and breakfast" situado en una casa antigua, pero su interior acaba de ser totalmente reformado. Jane y Tony, los dueños del "bed and breeakfast" muy amables. Nuestra habitación familiar era espaciosa, bien decorada, todo nuevo y muy limpio. Buenas vistas desde la habitación. El desayuno también era muy completo. Un buen lugar desde el que visitar la región de Perigord. Ha sido un placer alojarnos allí.

Carlos, Spain

Jane & Tony sont vraiment charmants, chaleureux et généreux, discrets et disponibles, toujours prêts à partager un verre et quelques mots. Chambre parfaite, petit-déj très copieux, on se sent "comme à la maison". Rencontre qu'on n'oublie pas.
