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.

We had a great time and would recommend it without reservation.

Perigord is a wonderful place to visit, of course, and the cottage was ideally placed to enjoy it without having to drive too far. Linda and George were marvellous hosts, and nothing was too much trouble....when I unpacked my case after the holiday, it was full of Linda's hand written direction sheets! Thank you both for making such a huge effort to assure we enjoyed our stay! Thanks too to Dimitri for cooking us a wonderful meal in the cottage one evening...it was memorable!
