Make a holiday rental home or villa in Monflanquin, France your home away from home

Monflanquin, a stunning French bastide town in Lot-et-Garonne, stands prominently on a hilltop overlooking the countryside of Aquitaine. Known as the finest example of a bastide town you can find, Monflanquin is a maze of narrow streets and alleyways, which simply ooze with history and character. Listed among the ‘most beautiful villages in France’, Monflanquin has managed to avoid the mass tourist market partially due to its location, high on a hill in the French countryside. If you do make the effort to visit, you will certainly not be disappointed.

Monflanquin is a magnificent destination to retreat to for a few weeks a year, allowing you to relax and let it all go. The idyllic setting and beautiful, timeless architecture, especially around the main square, the Place des Arcades, is a wonderful place to sit and eat, especially when you consider the number of excellent restaurants which call Monflanquin home. There are only a few days in the summer when Monflanquin is not peaceful; during the several ‘mediaeval days’ celebrated in summer, when there is a festival atmosphere in the streets, with falconry displays, ancient costumes and general merriment galore!

If you would like to find out a little more about bastide towns, there is an excellent little museum in the corner of the market square, which not only points out and explains the finest monuments and places of interest in Monflanquin, but also gives you a history and explanation of bastide towns in general.

David, Katie and family were perfect hosts - close enough to be available for any questions and tips and far enough away to feel properly secluded. The property itself is of a very high standard and manages to combine feeling cosy with a sense of spaciousness, which is quite hard to pull off! It properly felt like home for 11 days. In terms of location, it's just far enough away from the village to really enjoy the quiet of the grounds and the woods (not to mention seeing stars like I haven't in years once away from streetlights) but easily close enough to walk in for morning croissants and daily baguettes - which we did most days. As a base for exploring it's also great - the list of great places to visit within an hour's drive would keep you going for a month, let alone 11 days, which is just one of the reasons that we'll definitely be back in 2017. Finally - if the option of a meal at Chez Julien is available then grab it with both hands. Lovely restaurant in abbey grounds, with excellent food and assured but relaxed service.

The accommodation is very clean and comfortable with a great upstairs bedroom, balcony and bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could want for cooking, even down to a dishwasher. Although attached to the owner's house, it still feels very private and peaceful as you have your own entrance and terrace space etc. The pool is a reasonable size and along with a terrace to sunbathe, overlooks picturesque countryside with far reaching views. It only takes 10/15 minutes to walk into the centre of Monflanquin village which has some good restaurants. We stayed late in the season, at the end of September and were lucky to enjoy some very pleasant weather and temperatures in the late 20s. The town did feel very quiet however, and a lot of things in the area had closed for the season, so maybe if we visited again we would come earlier in the year. All in all a very enjoyable holiday and we were made to feel very welcome by our hosts Alison and John who were on hand to help with anything as needed. Thank you :-)

Pool is spotlessly clean and a welcome addition with lots of seating around it. Lovely little private courtyard for alfresco dining. The farm is in beautiful surroundings and so many beautiful villages to discover but is quite remote so a car is absolutely essential. On the plus side it is very very peaceful and star gazing is amazing! Would definitely consider staying again 😀.
