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

Monpazier is a commune in Dordogne, South-West France. Considered the best-preserved bastide in the region, Monpazier is featured in several historical films, and is regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in the whole of France. Visitors can marvel at some of the country’s finest architecture and transport themselves back to the 13th century when renting self catering accommodation in this model medieval gem.

Things to do in Monpazier, France

The main draw of Monpazier is the village itself, which was built by Edward I in 1284 and is a National Heritage Site. The covered market square – the Place des Cornieres - is the main focal point, and the houses that surround it are all of an identical size and incorporate some fabulous architecture. Some buildings have been recently restored, but all retain their original dimensions, with a 13th Century Inn, timbered buildings and narrow streets all vying for your attention. Make sure you visit St. Dominique’s Church, which was also built in the 13th century, and has an unusual ribbed vault that extends out into the chevet at the eastern end.

Monpazier is busiest with tourists during summer months, and a number of events are held between July and September, including a cycle race around the bastide, a kermesse (festival), several specialist markets (including a mushroom market) and a medieval fete.

The countryside around Monpazier is hilly and wooded, and makes for some great hiking opportunities that will get you off the beaten tourist track. Within reasonable walking distance are the Chateau du Biron and the Dordogne River, and there are several neighbouring villages within reach if you are prepared to make a day of it. A good idea is to pick up a baguette, and some locally produced cheese and wine from the village shops and take a picnic with you to enjoy out in the countryside, under the sun.

Places to visit on holiday in Monpazier, France

The neighbouring villages of Biron (8km) and Capdrot (3km) are also home to some fantastic architecture, and are well worth a visit. Biron Castle has had many additions over the centuries, including the cellar kitchens, a 12th century dungeon, Renaissance apartments and san impressive state room. The nearest town is Bergerac (49km), which is famous for wine and tobacco production.

Weather in Monpazier, France

Monpazier has a mild climate all year round, with summer temperatures sunny and pleasant, but rarely hot and uncomfortable, and winters rarely below an average of 10C. Rainfall is well distributed throughout the year, which makes it ideal for the vines in the surrounding wine regions.

Flights to Monpazier, France

The most convenient airport to fly to from the UK is Bergerac Airport (EGC), which is well under an hour’s drive away from your holiday rental accommodation in Monpazier. Bordeaux Airport (BOD) is another option, with the famous wine producing region an enjoyable two hour drive away.

Beautifully set out with everything you could want or need. Private patio area.

5 of 5
My 4 friends and I had a wonderful time in Les Chenes (the largest of the gites) the beds and furniture were very comfortable and the location was fabulous for easily exploring a large part of the surrounding area. We went to Lascaux and Sarlat amongst many other places and on the last evening to a very good local family run restaurant recommended by David our host. I have stayed here 2 years ago with another friend, and we all fully intend to return again. The peacefulness and ambience of this gite complex is “par excellence”, I just wish the weather had remained warm enough for us to swim in the fantastic pool provided for our use. There was also a wood burning stove provided for us to use if it became chilly in the evening, we used it once and found it very easy to operate and it really warmed up the whole gite very quickly. Definitely an excellent place to stay with a great location, excellent facilities and friendly English hosts.

A beautiful gite perfect for two people.

5 of 5
We loved our stay at Les Ronces. The gite was very pretty and had everything we needed for a delightful stay. We were out most of the day sorting out our own property but loved coming back to the gite for a nice hot shower and evening meal. David and Mandy were very friendly and hospitable and generous in their advice and help. Peaceful and beautiful but within easy travelling of many towns, villages and attractions.
