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.

Perfect location- only ten minutes stroll to boulangerie and 15 into Monflanquin Square. Beautiful pool area with stunning open views. Alison and John were very attentive and always available if anything was needed. We would definitely go back again and recommend this gite unreservedly.

It is the perfect location, the gite is tucked away down a long drive, has fantastic views of the nearby village on the hill, is surrounded by farmland and woodland. We loved sitting in the garden and just listening to the birds and wildlife. The pool is amazing, we spent hours in it, loads of toys and inflatables from the games room on hand to borrow. The games room also has a table football. Jim the owner comes over every morning to clean the pool so it is kept immaculate. The gite is perfect, you walk into a big open living/dining area with tiled floors, comfy sofas and TV/DVD player which opens into a lovely fully equipped kitchen with loads of storage. This opens to an outside dining area/garden with stunning views. There are three bedrooms, beautifully decorated and furnished and three bath/shower rooms. Everything is immaculate. Jim and Jo are so welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We hired bikes while we there and were able to cycle to the local village, although it was too much for a couple of us as it was really hot. We had a hire car and enjoyed visiting lots of pretty local villages and chateaus nearby. We also did canoeing down the River Dordogne which was an amazing experience although 14 km was definitely a bit too long for us! So overall a perfect holiday and we would definitely recommend it, and will definitely be going back
