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.

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!

                                                                                                      We chose the Butterfly Cottage for a relaxing break after a busy year getting married and moving house. We couldn't have made a better choice. Linda and George's (and Roosevelt's!) hospitality was second to none - they were integral to ensuring our stay was as enjoyable as possible. As we're keen bikers, the weather during the week was perfect - sunny and around 24 degrees and we managed to clock up over 160km during the course of our holiday. The bike rides themselves were fantastic thanks to George who plotted the routes using his local knowledge of the area. We can particularly recommend the ride which took us past a number of beautiful chateaus. The pool and jacuzzi were perfect for unwinding after a long day on the bikes - and the heated pool is a real luxury in mid September! Another highlight of the week was Dmitri, the local chef who came to cook for us one evening. We both agree that it was the best meal we've ever had (and that's including Michelin starred restaurants!) - my soufflé and scallop starter was delicious, and the apple tart dessert simply divine! Dmitri is a must for anyone staying at the Butterfly Cottage - you won't regret it! We can't wait to return in the near future. Sophie & Doug

Great to be close to the village (small and sleepy but with good market, 2 bakeries, butcher/traiteur, restaurant, bars...) 3. House is very comfortable and just about the best equipped we have ever stayed in 4. Hosts are terrific and gave us some excellent recommendations, perfectly tailored to our interests 5. Close to so many stunning places to visit (Sarlat, Roque-Gageac, Domme) that as week just won't be long enough 6. Lots of good walks close by - also well signed cycle routes and quiet, safe roads 7. But also perfect for doing nothing, sitting by the pool in the sunshine with a pastis listening to birdsong or curling up in front of the woodburner with a book 8. For foodlovers, the place is paradise with inspiring markets to buy local, seasonal food; a well equipped kitchen to prepare it and a choice of indoor and outdoor dining space to enjoy leisurely meals 9. For a break from cooking there are lots of good restaurants - not least the Auberge in the village - four courses for under 13 euros (including soup which came in a tureen not just a bowl, similarly the cheese course was presented in whole pieces to cut off as much as liked and wine included) 10. At the end of the day, beds of deep comfort - we slept for hours in peace
