La Maison d'Amis is on the southern edge of Monflanquin and offers that rarely found combination of being in the countryside yet within a 10/15 minute walk of the town. A totally self contained wing of owners main house. With its own enclosed garden and sunny first floor balcony. THE 10x5 METRE POOL with large sunny terrace and covered area for shade is FOR YOUR EXCLUSIVE USE, owners will only use pool if you are away. The accommodation is furnished to a high standard, fully equipped with all modern appliances throughout. On the ground floor the lounge/dining area is entered through french windows. Off the lounge is the modern kitchen with rear door leading to the garden and pool. On the first floor is the light and airy double bedroom with en-suite bath/shower room. French windows lead onto the private south west facing balcony with views of Monflanquin. You have exclusive use of the enclosed garden with both sunny and shaded areas. A path leads you to the partially elevated pool providing an ideal vantage point for absorbing the quiet ambience of the area with open country views or enjoying a leisurely poolside lunch under the flower adorned auvent.

Monflanquin, a pretty 13C Medieval Bastide Town founded during the 100 years war, sits high on a hill, its two church towers silhouetted on the skyline can be seen for miles around justifying its well earned title of L'un des Plus Beaux Villages de France (One of the most beautiful villages of France). Cobbled Alleys lead to a central Arcaded Square where the Weekly Market is held and Restaurants and Bars can be found. During the summer months there are Music, Art Exhibitions and Medieval Festivals reflecting the towns cultural heritage. Situated in gently rolling countryside between the picturesque Dordogne and Lot Valleys are numerous places of interest to visit, prehistoric sites, chateaux, gardens and many other Bastide towns. For wine and food lovers the area is famous, sample its gastronomic specialities and enjoy tasting wine from the many local vineyards.
