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.

A converted Gite to a lovely, comfortable house

4 of 5
Giselle and Jean-Pierre were perfect hosts and made us very welcome.They left us a lovely selection of home made products with wine and essentials. Monpazier is a beautiful medieval village with a good sprinkling of shops, cafes and restaurants and is only 25 miles from Bergerac airport. It is very convenient for exploring other beautiful medieval towns and villages around the Dordogne area with their local markets and histories. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay in this comfortable house with all its' modern facilities and only a 2 minute walk to Monpazier centre. Particular Pair

Holiday at Bourgale first week of September 2018

5 of 5
We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at this property. It is an oasis of relaxation, a cottage surrounded by gardens, meadows and forest. The accommodation is spacious, very well equipped and has a lovely character that blends well with the 12th century manor. David and Katie were welcoming and excellent hosts.Their recommendations and local knowledge ensured each day trip was memorable. We divided our time between relaxing at the cottage gardens and lovely pool, and exploring the Pergord region.
