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.

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.

For our party of eight, including six older "children" (aged 14-25), it was ideal, as there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and claim their own bit of space, but also some lovely, good-sized areas for when we all wished to get together for food and boardgames etc. We enjoyed eating our meals outside every night, including several BBQs, using the BBQ equipment provided. The swimming pool and good quality table tennis table were both big hits with the entire family and many hours were spent by all, swimming or just lounging by the pool. Location wise, this property delivered the best of both worlds; wonderfully peaceful and private surroundings, whilst also being perfectly situated for quick trips to the supermarket and nearby markets in Montpazier and Beaumont. Other trips out included visits to Bergerac, Chateau de Biron, Les Jardins de L'Imaginaire, high rope adventure and kayaking on the Dordogne - all from our wonderful base camp at Fauvet. Our contact with the owner of the property was 100% positive and she was both quick and helpful in her replies. At the end of two very enjoyable weeks, we did not want to leave Fauvet and would happily return in the future.

We spent most of our time on the terrace, just off the kitchen, admiring the quiet countryside or watching the kids splash around in the pool. The terrace was large and comfortable, and a lovely place to escape the heat of the day. The house was tidy and clean with plenty of space for the 4 of us to spread out. The kitchen had all of the amenities needed to make proper meals, and the terrace grill and charcoal BBQ only enhanced the cooking possibilities. Alison and Dave also provided a folder filled with all the information necessary for the house as well as recommendations for sightseeing, restaurants and other activities. We visited several of the nearby bastide villages & markets, toured one of the prehistoric cave sites, and canoed on the Vezere. But most of the time, we stayed close to the house, swimming, reading or trying to catch frogs in the pond! There is so much to do in the area, that 7 days was not enough time to do it all! From beginning to end, this was a seamless holiday. Booking was easy, and Alison was quick to answer all of my questions by both phone and email. We highly recommend Plein Sud and hope to be back again soon!

Even though the owners live next door to the property they were not intrusive but were always on hand for any queries. The pool is a great with a view of the lake, which makes for a lovely evening walk. There is plenty of ground for boule or badminton when it's not too hot! There is plants to do in the area including canoeing, cycling or just visiting the many local markets in the surrounding villages. Communication regarding booking was very easy and nothing was too much trouble for Caroline. Thank you for a lovely holiday, we hope to return sometime. Claire
