Our gite is located in an historic 'bastide' (walled village) founded in 1284 by England's Edward I, at a time when the king of England still controlled much of France.

Acknowledged as one of the most beautiful villages in France, Monpazier has several restaurants/cafes offering a range of dining experiences, from casual to haute cuisine. A colourful weekly market is held in the village square on Thursday mornings, offering local produce and a variety of other goods. Monpazier is also home to a number of artists and artisans specializing in glassware, leather-work, pottery and marquetry - and even delicately carved ostrich and emu eggs!

The countryside around the village is ideal for touring and cycling, with a range of attractions. Please refer to the sections "Description of Dordogne" and "Description of Monpazier" for more information on local places of interest.

Our gîte, on the ground floor, provides an intimate home for two. It has one large bedroom with queen size bed and a lounge with flatscreen TV and WiFi. The kitchen/dining area opens onto a small terrace.

The gîte has a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. All essential linen and towels are also provided at no additional charge.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The area of the Dordogne surrounding Monpazier is home to many chateaux, including the formidable fortress of Castelnaud, with its museum of the Middle Ages, exhibitions of blacksmithing and wood turning in summer, and display of trebuchets – large catapults used to lay siege to medieval castles. By contrast, at the chateau of Marqueyssac there's not a weapon in sight, just breathtaking views and a rambling garden of immaculately manicured hedges.

Also within easy reach are numerous ancient and picturesque villages, each with its own character and most hold a weekly market. In nearby Belves you can visit troglodyte cave dwellings beneath the town that were occupied right up to the 18th century. Also close by, the pretty village of Cadouin is centred round its cloistered abbey.

A short drive will take you to caves hidden in limestone gorges, featuring world famous examples of the art of prehistoric man. Or you may fancy a leisurely trip along the Dordogne River in a 'gabarre', a traditional river barge, including a gourmet picnic lunch if you wish.

Small lakes nearby offer safe swimming for children, water sports or a chance to laze about in the sun. The area also has a choice of three golf courses.

Monpazier

Founded in 1284, Monpazier was called the Pearl of the English XIIIth century bastide towns in the Dordogne and retains its centuries old charm.

It is also home to many artists and artisans - painters, potters, workers in wood and glass, and perhaps uniquely the production of exquisite table lamps made from delicately carved ostrich and emu eggs, which really must be seen to be appreciated.

If you visit in July you can join in the fun of the medieval fair, when Monpazier's village square becomes a medieval encampment. This event is usually held on the last weekend in July but please check before booking.

Perhaps you would like to hire a bike and get out into the countryside, or even see it on horseback?

If your interest in horses is a little more passive, you could choose to sip a glass of champagne and risk a euro or two at a local horse race meeting – it isn't Royal Ascot but it is fun!

The tourist information office in the village has comprehensive information on other events in and around the village.

The village has a range of services and facilities, with two supermarkets, two butchers, three boulangerie/patisseries, a pharmacy, a general medical practitioner and even a library with a good selection of English language books.
