The Dordogne region

This area is home to many chateaux, including the formidable fortress of Castelnaud and the chateau of Marqueyssac with breathtaking views and rambling garden.

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

A short drive will take you to caves hidden in limestone gorges, or a leisurely trip along the Dordogne River in a gabarre, a traditional river barge.

Small lakes nearby offer a chance to laze about in the sun. The area has a choice of three golf courses.

Aquitaine/Dordogne

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.

“The perfect gîte in the perfect place”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2016

This gîte met all our expectations, and more. The rooms were of good size, the bed very comfortable, and the living areas met all our needs. . Our hosts, John and Edèll, were unobtrusive but always available, and were a mine of information. The gîte is situated within two minutes walk of the village square. We would not hesitate to recommend this gîte to anyone seeking a comfortable, friendly place to stay in an enchanting part of the world. It was brilliant. Thanks John and Edèll.
