Welcome to Peyre Blanc!
Peyre Blanc means white stone in french. This farmhouse which dates back to 1836 and was once used as a smithery, is an excellent example of the beautiful white stone that enriches the local region. The farmhouse is set on one acre of land in a scenic rural setting. It is five kilometers from the enchanting medieval bastide village of Monflanquin.
The farmhouse has been refurbished and the beautiful stone work restored. The smithery has been converted to a living room and retains many of its original features with large arched windows, solid oak work benches and forged iron tools.

The bastide village of Monflanquin was founded in 1256 by Alphonse de Poitiers (also referred to as the "Black Prince").
The village is positioned on a hilltop and offers magnificent views of the surroundings. On a sunny day, you can literally see tens of kilometers away.
It has a beautiful market place with the arcades surrounding it. Also all the little streets leading up to it are gorgeous.
There are plenty of restaurants with a high standard of food and service.
The shared local heated outdoor pool in Monflanquin is very refreshing on a hot summer day.
