Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

The area is renowned for its gourmet restaurants and home produced foods and the markets host the most amazing array of fresh produce from the region. With beautiful honey coloured villages, some perched clinging to the side of rocks and others set around planned squares and courtyards the medieval Bastide towns beckon you to have a coffee and take in the atmosphere and the history of the area.


Climate : The summers are quite hot with an average of 30-35degres and even hotter sometimes so don't forget your sunscreen lotion. The best months to come over and visit the area are may and June because the days could be delightfully warm.September and October are also excellent : after some morning fog, the sun comes through and the afternoons are warm and pleasant. Average temperatures for september & may : 24c (75F), for october : 18c (64F).

Molieres

An 'English' bastide town, founded towards the end of the 13th century, Molieres was never completed. It then suffered considerably during the later wars - the Hundred Years War and the Wars of Religion.


The market hall that once stood in the centre of the square has disappeared, as have much of the arcades that would have surrounded the main square and can be seen in some of the other bastides such as Monpazier and Villereal.

For all that medieval destruction Molieres remains one of our favourite villages in the southern Dordogne region and is very worthy of a visit.

Not overly restored, the square especially has the feel of being unchanged with the centuries.

There is also an interesting church in Molieres, a few metres away from the main square.

It doesn't take very long to amble around the square and along the 'high street' - time perhaps for a relaxing rest in the small cafe in Molieres.

While in Molieres you can visit the 'House of Walnuts' - an exhibition celebrating the important role that walnuts continue to play in the Dordogne region.

Kayaking, canoeing, water sports are all within a short driving distance away.

The nearest town is Lalinde which hosts numerous bars and cafes, an Intermarche and local shops.

Lalinde was the first English bastide, founded in 1267 by Henry III Plantagenet but it suffered serious damage during the Hundred Years War and the Wars of Religion.

Various edifices built at different periods are worthy of interest. Lalinde’s roots can be seen in the grid plan of the town’s streets, the stone cross erected in the market square in 1351, and the stone and brick Porte Romane gateway at the west entrance of the town.

Numerous old houses, the Governor’s House, the Counsel House, the remains of the Midi Wall and the Renaissance house which is now home to the Tourist Office.

Lalinde boasts several listed buildings. The church, which replaced the original Romanesque church, was inaugurated in 1901. The town owes much of its charm to the Dordogne River and canal.
