Can't recommend it highly enough!
We were fortunate to spend 2 months in this delightful medieval village in a charming 300 year old home. Beautiful views from 4th floor terrace (don't let the stairs deter you - we are 65 and 72 and quickly got used to them), plus a balcony to overlook the village activity. Friendly neighbors, weekly market, excellent restaurants, great location for visiting the many other villages, chateaux and historical sites in the area.
Quirky and charming with modern kitchen and bath, handy washer and dryer, and comfortable beds.
American owners are very easy to work with and we would love to return soon!
A characterful gem
We had a wonderful family holiday (2 parents and kids of student age) at this superb property. Excellently kitted out, all rooms characterful, and a roof terrace with spectacular views over the rooftops and countryside beyond - a place to enjoy a glass of thelocal wine. The house is located 50 yards from the mediaeval main square in the little hilltop bastide town of Monflanquin. The town has a great selection of eateries and cafes, and on the evening of market day (Thurs), tables are set up in the square and vendors sell meals of local produce. We enjoyed the rambles through the fields, chateaux, bistros, vineyards, further bastides (notably Monpazier), caves, rolling countryside and the town's very good municipal swimming-pool. Thoroughly recommended, a great trip, we intend to return.
Lovely typically French townhouse.
We enjoyed our stay. The house was bigger than we expected. Well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. Ideally a fan in each bedroom would have been great as it was hot when we were there. The terrace was wonderful to watch the sunset and to eat our meals on.
This was a beautiful house with a superb view from the rooftop terrace.
We really enjoyed our week in Monflanquin, Michael's house and the people in the village.

Absulutely no complaints. Great place.
Great place in a wonderful little bastide town. Well equipped kitchen, huge bedrooms and bathrooms, not to mention big living room and kitchen. Rooftop deck was lots of fun. We did cocktail hour up there, watching cats on a neighboring roof stalk the pigeons. Great wifi service. We would come back in a heartbeat. Michael and Vince sent careful advice annd directions, quite precise. Note that the recommended bakery is down the hill and several hundred yards to the left. A great value, we thought. The only minor irritant was the second floor toilet that ran water longer than it should. A few adjustments to the float solved the problem, though a replacement of the flapper will be needed. When that is the worst thing one can describe, you know this is a great place to stay.!
This home is wonderful. The beds are comfy. The bathrooms are great. The kitchen is well appointed for cooking. There is a super marche close by and the village has anything else. Parking is free and easy. There are many sites nearby. The roads are easy to navigate.
I am looking forward to returning. 1 week is hardly enough here.
