Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and took advantage of the great weather and made the most of the pool.
Very quiet and relaxing break. Taking meals on the terrace before retiring to a comfortable bed. Close to All the main. Supermarkets and near to the beautiful bastide of. Monflanquin, with a good choice of bars and restaurants.
Definitely come stay again.
We had a lovely two weeks in this property and Keith and Christine were very welcoming on arrival and throughout our stay.
The gîte is located in a very rural forest location about 10 minutes drive from the beautiful bastide town of Monpazier, which has a number of restaurants and shops as well as a bustling market on Thursdays. At busy times, be prepared to park and walk a little although, like all the towns we visited, there is always parking somewhere and nearly always free. The nearest large supermarkets are about 25 minutes drive but do try to shop locally if you can. Our favourite restaurant in Monpazier was Privilège du Périgord which had some interesting twists on the standard Périgord fare of duck and foie gras.
This area of the Périgord is a little quieter than the main Dordogne region which is about 40-60 mins drive to the north but there is still plenty of interest in the other bastide towns and chateaus (Biron being the nearest) and not far away from the Lot where we stayed previously which is quieter still. Bergerac, Sarlat and Cahors are all within reach and worth a visit.
The accommodation is set within the huge converted stone barn that makes up Keith and Christine’s home but with its own courtyard and entrance. The barn walls are very thick which ensures it remained cool even during the heat of August. The rooms are large and very well finished with a kitchen/dining/lounge, bedroom and beautiful bathroom which has both bath and shower. The photos didn’t do it justice! The kitchen was well equipped with a large range cooker, fridge freezer and dishwasher. There is also a washing machine which we used a couple of times. Outside there is a covered dining area with a gas barbeque which we used several times. Christine and Keith have neighbours but we hardly ever heard them. It is a very quiet, peaceful and sheltered spot.
We have stayed in self-catering accommodation several times in France and elsewhere over the years and this is one of the best and we thoroughly recommend it.
