The Owner Recommends

Sightseeing/Restaurants/Wine-tasting/Local Produce Markets/Canoeing/Horse-riding and lots more!

Chateau de Bonaguil : a stunning castle, a place of great interest for everyone. Bonaguil is a 13th-century castle and in the summer hosts, music spectacular, medieval displays, opera's and theatrical plays and firework displays.

Monpazier : Founded in 1284 by King Edward I of England with the help of Pierre de Gontaut, Lord of Biron, it was only during the reign of King Charles V of France (1366-1380) that the bastide became definitively French. A truly wonderful place to visit, with shops, restaurants, coffee bars, and a local produce market every Thursday.

Chateau de Biron : is a wonderful castle, located close to Monpazier, set on a hilltop, it can be seen from many vantage points in the area, each time looking more splendid than the time before. Within the walls of the chateau you will see some beautiful rooms, dating from different periods.

Monflanquin : Set on a hilltop is a very well preserved medieval town, and probably one of the most intact examples of a bastide town. With spectacular views from the hilltop looking over the beautiful countryside of Lot et Garonne, the Dordogne and Chateau de Biron in the distance. In the central square, the Place des Arcades, has beautifully preserved arcades with some fine buildings, most noteworthy is the 'House of the Black Prince'.

There are lots of restaurants that we can recommend, you will find a list in the Gite, traditionally french or more upbeat, all within 10 to 30mins maxiumum.

Local Produce Markets - You will find a local markets open daily in the region : Fumel / Puy l'eveque / Monpazier / Prayssac / Monsonpron-Libos / Villeréal, plus in the summer months, you can enjoy the local evening markets, where you can sample the local produce & wine! great for families/couples & friends, set in some of the lovely villages around this beautiful area of France.
