“A charming home in a stunning part of France”
Les Cerisiers is the sort of place I've always wanted to stay at. A charming stone cottage set amongst a private orchard, it is within easy walking distance of the walled town of Monpazier. From the minute one walks in there is a feeling of homeliness and comfort, and all the necessary things are there, plus many more thoughtful items. The beautifully equipped kitchen is great for cooking (with top quality knives!), the lounge has a cosy fireplace if needed, there is an outdoor garden setting for la pleine enjoyment (weather permitting), and the mezzannine bedroom, with lovely comfortable brass bed makes for a tranquil night's sleep. Rosemary was a terrific host to liaise with, always prompt in reply, and helpful in every regard. The coded key entry system worked easily, but my only words of warning are the finding of the actual street was a little fraught for us as French mapping and street naming seems to have more than one street with the same name. As long as you take the uphill track opposite the turn off to Villereal you should find it ok. Monpazier itself is a fantastic town; not overly commercialised or overrun by tourists (well, a few pass through in the day, but by night you almost feel like a local. ) There are plenty of terrific restaurants, excellent markets, and it is not too far to drive to many of the other exceptional places in the Dordogne/Perigord region.
“Perfect Dordogne Getaway”
We were looking for some place to wind down, relax and taste the French lifestyle. Les Cerisiers and Monpazier was the perfect double.. The cottage was all we wanted. Well appointed with all the necessary kitchen aids to create a French feast, it was also cosy and warm with a very comfy bed. Location was ideal, just far enough from Monpazier to provide a quiet isolation in a beautiful garden setting, yet close enough for an easy stroll for the morning coffee and quiche. Monpazier itself is also a beautiful village, not swarming with tourists, but well serviced by some excellent restaurants, boulangeries and charcuteries. We are so glad we chose Les Cerisiers.
“Great location - central Dordogne”
We had a great week here late May. The plain trees were at the end of flowering. The cottage was very comfortable and it's only a 5 minute walk to the village. We picked cherries each afternoon from the trees on the property. The enjoyed the local foie gras,bakery,butcher and restaurants in Monpazier. If you don't have transport you would manage as you can get everything you require from Monpazier. Within an hours drive you can visit many of the other beautiful villages in the Dordogne. Hope we can return again sometime. Enjoy!!
“Cosy cottage in delightful setting”
We spent a wonderful week in this cottage which had everything you could want for a great holiday. We spent almost all the time outside in the garden with its beautiful trees. Sunrise and sunset over Monpazier were stunning. Monpazier was a short stroll away, walking or cycling there to purchase breakfast baguettes and croissants became our daily ritual. Monpazier itself has a good range of restaurants and a busy weekly market. There are several good cycling routes (our 1 euro local cycling map purchased at the tourist info) was well used. All the arrangements (access, route advice, deposit return etc) were excellent. The folder in the gite contained lots of useful information. We would certainly recommend Les Cerisiers for it's comfort, location and to anyone seeking a relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting.
“A true "Cottage in the Dordogne" experience.”
If five star luxury hotels are your travel preference then Les Cerisiers in Monpazier is not for you. If however you seek that true French cottage in the country experience; walking into the village to get the croissants in the morning, restaurants ranging from Michelin recommended gastronomic indulgence, to good basic family affairs through to a quick pizza on the day that you just can't be bothered; a couple of bars for a local vin rouge with a snack and one of the most complete and unadulterated bastide villages in France that still functions as a working town and hasn't been destroyed by the tourist industry and its ugly ephemera, then this is for you. Les Cerisiers is the gatekeeper's cottage attached to the larger Villa Sainte Therese, about a five to ten minute walk from the Monpazier village gates. It is a modernised stone cottage with plenty of space to feel comfortable inside and all the fundamentals to make it homely in a slightly quirky fashion. Wifi connection is good, kitchen set up is complete and the bathroom a bit squeezy but with gallons of hot water. Also there is a washing machine, ironing facilities and an outdoor barbecue. We were there in September and had some unseasonable cool, wet weather but the heating systems kept us comfortable. We managed to eat out on the terrace a couple of times in defiance of the weather, but I'm sure it would be a delight on a balmy summer's evening. The owner, Rosemary Vine makes each new arrival welcome with detailed information about how everything works, where to go to shop and eat and other villages to be visited. There is also a full list of emergency contact details. As one of Les Plus Beaux Villages in France, this is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in all things really French. English is widely spoken but as elsewhere in the country, there is a great appreciation for any attempt to speak in French.
“A sweet little cottage close to a darling bastide village in the Frenc countryside”
We loved our stay in this cottage, which was well set uo for cooking and relaxing. Rosemary provided complete information about the cottage and the village. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace with a glass of the complimentary Monbazillac wine and looking out over the meadow.
“Lovely cottage in the heart of the Perigord gastronomic region”
Les Cerisiers was a delightful cottage for two with access to a huge garden. We spent nearly 3 weeks here. It sits on an escarpment overlooking the Bastide village of Monpazier. The cottage was well equipped, and comfortable and it gave us a base for our exploration of this fascinating region. It is a region full of history, pre-history and gastronomic delights. We had access to the rest of the world through both British and French TV, but found little time to watch. We could keep in touch with family via WiFi. We would be delighted to return.
“Les Cerisiers is a cosy romantic cottage, just outside of Monpazier and set in the beautiful Dordogne countryside.”
Les Cerisier is a delightful cottage, cosy & comfortable, relaxing & romantic, set in beautiful grounds with walnut and cherry trees. The cottage was superbly equipped and well maintained, with excellent service from English housekeepers nearby. It is within walking distance of Monpazier, an historic, well-preserved fortified village, with every convenience and amenity you could desire or need. There were many attractions nearby with historic chateaux and beautiful old villages to explore. Amazing restaurants, and the River Dordogne only a short distance by car, providing water activities in the warmer months. I would not hesitate to recommend this vacation rental. Kerry Scott Perth WA
“Romantic Retreat in the Dordogne”
Les Cerisiers is beautifully designed. Ideal for a romantic getaway. We spent many an evening watching the sunset go down over Monpazier. We had planned to travel more around the Dordogne but we struggled to drag ourselves away from the pool and Monpazier most days. It is a perfect distance from Monpazier as we felt quite secluded but every morning we walked into Monpazier for the daily ritual of buying croissants and sitting in the square for a cafe au lait. Monpazier is well served for some excellent restaurants. We spent our first week in France travelling around and racking up 2000 miles on roads, Les Cerisiers was the perfect excuse to just stop and relax for our second week. Rachel, Surrey
