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 nearest town is Bergerac (49km), which is famous for wine and tobacco production.

Well furnished throughout, and kept in very good order and very clean. We hope to return soon! Thank you! Nick and Nina

From the pictures, we were expecting the property and grounds to be lovely (and had spent a long time searching for a holiday property) but it was even better than we imagined. We had a very warm welcome from Dave, Katie and the children (complete with wine and nibbles) and felt immediately at home. There was everything we needed for a relaxing holiday and, importantly for us, the property had everything we needed to keep a toddler safe and well looked after: stair gates around the terrace, a highchair and a very sweet children's bedroom with a travel cot. Our daughter absolutely loved running around the gardens, feeding the chickens and having a miniature tractor ride with the children and ducks! The surrounding area had plenty to offer - lots to see and do. This is clearly a property that has been very thoughtfully and carefully renovated and maintained and having such friendly and helpful hosts (and playmates for our daughter!) was a real bonus. We will definitely be returning!

The accommodation had everything we needed including an extremely well-equipped kitchen, a modern bathroom with an excellent shower, a big comfy bed and places to sit and relax while reading or watching TV. The balcony with its far reaching wonderful views of the beautiful Dordogne countryside is the perfect place to sit at any time of the day, watching the air balloons go by, eating, drinking, watching the sun go down, enjoying the peace and quiet, and just feeling total deep-down relaxation take hold of you. It was a real pleasure for us to meet Vincent and Maria who could not have been more helpful and friendly. On their recommendation we went to the brilliant Sunday market at St Cyprien and as we drove there it seemed every car in the area was heading in that direction. We can definitely recommend the lasagne we bought there! We visited Montpazier, a 13th century bastide town founded by Edward I, we went to Domme and Sarlat and climbed up to the castle at Beynac, and also explored the little church in St Cybranet. The weather and the views were wonderful wherever we went, and on our last day we bought delicious pastries from the patisserie in Castelnaud and walked by the river in the still warm sunshine. A week is not long enough to explore everything this area has to offer, we were extremely sad to leave, and we would definitely like to stay here again. Thank you Vincent and Maria for a wonderful week. Anne and Ken, Yorkshire
