About lin morrell

I live in Bath and I have visited France frequently, including studying Norman Architecture may years ago.

I adore the space and culture that France has to offer and the countryside around here is spectacular. I am a runner and running around the countryside there gives me so much joy. Come and join in.

I spent several years renovating my house to its present condition, which has been a labour of love. Including chipping cement from the back of carpets sticking them to the bedroom floors!

I like the thought of being able to share the house with people so that they can experience a taste of local living.

Monpazier is fabulous. Take the opportunity to stay there.

Why lin morrell chose Monpazier

The house oozes tradition and is quirky due to its age. It has some stunning features.

There are 2 stone fireplaces: one in the kitchen that houses a fridge, oven & a cupboard, and the other is in the master bedroom where you can relax and feel grand staying there.

We think it is 2 traditional houses knocked into one. Look at the width of walls going from the living room into the staircase. and the shape of the beams in the living room. Tell me what you think.

This property is fabulous as it is traditional with modern facilities. It's a bit quirky! Just what you are looking for. The view from the the terrace is fantastic. During the day it's fairly quiet, and in the evening the sunsets are spectacular! If you haven't seen a Monpazier sunset, then you've missed out. Sit on the terrace with a glass of wine and just be stunned !

What makes this house unique

Monpazier is a fabulous Bastide. Staying in traditional house, and being able to enjoy wonderful surroundings so close to the centre of one of the most beautiful towns in France is a great opportunity.

In seconds you can enjoy wonderful restaurants, cafes and architecture or just sit looking at the view. The town centre is lively and during the summer there are lots of things happening.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Plenty of space to cook, sit & lounge downstairs & the upstairs provides wonderful accommodation. The outside space opposite the house provides a nice sunny spot for sundowners & dining (or when we were there perhaps too sunny!). A really nice place to stay.

Picturesque Medieval Village

  • 4 of 5

Great location in a picturesque medieval village. Good place to explore Dordogne from. We enjoyed the prehistoric caves and canoeing the Dordonge River.
