Description

A WONDERFUL LOCATION, A FRIENDLY VILLAGE AND BASE TO EXPLORE SOUTHERN FRANCE!

Our beautiful bastide maison de ville, built in 1353 has recently been lovingly restored while preserving it's original features and resulting in a very comfortable and stylish home with all the charm of medieval life in France.

Living in one of France's 100 Most Beautiful Villages you have the opportunity to enjoy the many fetes, festivals and markets which take place in the Monpazier square - just 50 metre's from our front door and the great variety of restaurants, galleries and other attractions within the village.

The experience of having the opportunity to stay inside the walls of Monpazier has exceeded all our expectations and we know it will for you too!

While built in 1353 and having been an Epicerie (grocery and haberdashery) the house has a great layout and is perfect for up to 4 couples or combined families.

The entrance hallway leads you to the open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen area, as well as a downstairs bathroom and an easy flight of stairs to the first floor.

The open plan lounge and dining room has a large fireplace that is perfect for winter evenings, and is adjacent to a modern and well appointed kitchen with scullery, laundry and storage areas (all separate rooms) and is linked to a charming outdoor stone walled courtyard.

The lounge has a luxurious studded leather lounge suite which comfortably seats 8 adults and has a 55' TV with English & French TV programs, stereo and Wi-fi.

The large square dining table seats up to 12 people on high back leather chairs. It's perfect for entertaining or enjoying lovely family meals!

The first floor includes 4 bedrooms dressed with high quality linen and décor, and each with ensuite bathroom including a shower, vanity and toilet. The landing lounge area has seating and chaise lounges to relax in - a lovely space on those hot summer afternoons!

Monpazier was founded in 1284 and built by the English in the reign of Edward 1. It was called the 'Pearl of the English XIIIth Century Bastide Towns'. While much has happened over the history of time…. that hasn't changed as it is still referred to as 'the best preserved bastide in France'. It may seem small however as a well preserved, beautiful bastide and working village it has a great range of shops, restaurants, artisans and attractions.

Cuisine is a big focus of the area and as such, you have 10+ restaurants in the village ranging from casual pizzerias, a creperie and bistros, through to elegant fine dining. Basic provisions are well looked after by the 2 mini-markets (SPAR & Casino) within the village walls and then there's a great range of specialty goods that can be found at the 3 patisserie/boulangerie shops and 2 charcuteries that have an excellent range of meats and deli goods. There's also a wine cellar, organic produce shop, a pharmacy, beauty salon and masseuse..... and the list goes on. You'll be very well catered for and all within walking distance!

Monpazier also has a strong artisan community with a range of wonderful galleries and showrooms including - wood turners/stone craftsmen, glassblower where you can watch your creation being made, a clockmaker, handmade leather goods, traditional soap & perfumery, ceramics showrooms, and ostrich egg engraver, an excellent marquetry display and much, much more.

Monpazier has a colourful weekly market on Thursday mornings. Many of the neighbouring villages have weekly markets on different days of the week making it an excellent way to visit the surrounds and get a flavour of the region. Markets are largely based around the glorious local cuisines and specialty produce of the region – seasonal fruits, mushrooms (cepes), nuts, honey, duck, goose, foie gras and the most luxurious of all….. truffles!

Summer music festivals in Monpazier and most nearby villages are a delight. There are also the many fetes and festivals held throughout the year in our own village square:

Summer:
- Regular Night Markets
- Summer Brocante Market

May:
- Annual Flower & Rose Festival

July:
- Bastille Day Bodega & Fireworks Display

Autumn:
- Guided walks (randonees) in nearby Forests
- Autumn Brocante Market

October:
- Cepes Markets

December:
- Truffle Fete
- Christmas Market

January:
- Truffle Fete

Situated in the south of the Dordogne (one of the most beautiful and most popular areas in France), it's an area known as 'The Land of 1001 Chateaux'. Close by you can visit Chateau Biron (8kms), Lanquais (28kms), Milandes (36kms), Castelnaud (38kms) and Beynac (43kms)… to mention just a few.

You can also visit the prehistoric cave paintings and limestone caves at Gouffre de Proumeyssac (32kms), Grotte du Grand Roc (40kms), Grotte de Cougnac (57kms) and Grotte de Lascaux (70kms).

We have a lot of information on attractions of the area at Bastide 1353 however the local Tourismo/Information Office is extremely helpful and again – just 50 metres from our front door.

“The perfect way to experience France”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2017

Bastide 1353 is a great house in an amazing location. Monpazier and the surrounding area is a melting pot of French life, markets, history, great restaurants and squares too while away the day or people watch. The house is just a pleasure to come back too, loads of old characterful features and it has all the facilities you want, lovely furniture and beautiful pieces throughout the house to enjoy. There is a courtyard where we enjoyed breakfast, dinner and a few drinks with our friends. The top of my list were the beds, just so comfortable, best sleep for a long time. Bastide 1353 is only 50 metres away from the town square with its restaurants and bars which are full of life yet when back at the house it is nice and quiet. Absolutely recommend Bastide 1353! Peter & Jill

Owner's reply: Hi Pete & Jill, Great to hear you enjoyed your time at Bastide 1353, Monpazier and surrounds. We welcome your return! Kind regards, Tracy & John

“Fantastic home away from home in a beautiful French village”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2016

Monpazier was a fantastic holiday destination and a special place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with my sisters and their husbands. We loved experiencing living in a medieval village but with all required amenities. We made several day trips from this base, and found it central to many attractions and places of interest. The weather was great and we utilised the outdoor terrace on a daily basis, dining out each meal we had “at home”. Being an avid cook, I appreciated the kitchen and full complement of utensils etc. Had there been a BBQ available on the terrace (and a clothes line or airer), we would have rated it 6 Stars. We will certainly be recommending Bastide 1353 to anyone wishing to visit The Dordogne. Our friends on Facebook have already been provided with tantalising photos! 

Owner's reply: Great ot hear you enjoyed Bastide 1353, Monpazier and the surrounds as much as we do! There will be a Webber BBQ there for you to enjoy on your return with your friends and family. Kind regards, Tracy and John
