Location

Monflanquin


The property is located 2 minutes drive from the beautifully picturesque, hilltop village of Monflanquin, 30 minutes South of Bergerac (town and international airport).
15 - 20 minutes walk into the village.

Monflanquin is an old bastide town with winding streets and fabulous views. All amenities in the village including large supermarket, cafés, restaurants, bakeries. Traditional street market every Thursday morning.

The Dordogne area of France is one of the most beautiful and one of the most popular. Lovely countryside interspersed with medieval, bastide towns and fairytale châteaux rise from the morning mist.

Its a great region for food lovers; all the Perigordian specialities such as Foie Gras, confit d'oie and canard, mushrooms of all types are in abundance.

Many antique markets throughout the year. All info at the tourist information office.

Bergerac (40 minutes) was once a flourishing port for the wine trade. It still today has a picturesque harbour where you can take a boat trip along the river Dordogne, or a miniature train ride around the Bastide town, viewing the many half timbered houses with terracotta decoration.

The many timbered houses with terracotta decoration that line the lanes of the old town, are wonderfully evocative of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. On one corner the wanderer suddenly finds himself 'nose to nose' with Cyrano whose statue proudly reminds the visitor that Bergerac owes some of its fame to this historic figure. Not surprisingly the annual theatre 'Le Festival du Théatre' is named after him.

A great way to tour the vineyards is by following the designated Route des vins where the visitor will be welcomed by the growers and encouraged to try their wines. The Bergerac region is sometimes called Perigord Pourpre the name deriving from the rich purple-red wines that characterize this area of Perigord.

When the subject of 'gastronomy' is raised it is usually associated with a particular region and the Perigord stands in high regard in this field. The traditional produce, such as truffles, walnuts, strawberries and the wines, together with the well-known rich specialties derived from fattened geese and ducks, is largely responsible for this fame.

Châteaux Lanquais, 30 minutes from Bergerac is great for the kids; it still has great canon ball holes in the side walls from an attack, and a removable wooden stair case. Open all day every day in July / August.

Don't miss a trip to La Roque-Gageac, a stunningly beautiful village under the towering cliffs. The village regularly wins France's 'Prettiest Village' competition. Good canoeing centre here.

Competing with La Roque-Gageac in the prettiness stakes is the village of Carennac. Elevated just above the South bank of the Dordogne river, it is best known for its typical Quercy architecture and Romanesque priory. Further Romanesque art at the Saint-Pierre church in Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.

Perhaps the most famous of the Dordogne tourist attractions are the cave paintings around Les Eyzies. There are more pre-historic caves in this area than you could ever visit in a day! Les Eyzies lies at the heart of an unspoilt area of great natural beauty with rolling hills, tranquil rivers and fascinating cliff and rock formations. It has some of the world's most beautiful caves with outstanding stalactite and stalagmite crystallizations. And the cave-lined Vézère valley has been classified as a heritage site by UNESCO. The most well-known of all is the cave at Lascaux which was discovered in 1940. The paintings date back some 17,000 years.

Sarlat-la-Canéda features the highest concentration of medieval, Renaissance and 17th century facades of any town in France. Its prosperity was a reflection of the privileged status it was granted in return for loyalty to the French Crown during the 100 years war.

Behind the nondescript rue de la République are narrow lanes and archways, and ancient ocher-coloured stone town houses rich in ornamental detail. Protected by law since 1962, Sarlat-la-Canéda's buildings now form an outdoor museum.

The town is also famous for one of the best markets in France. Every Saturday the great Sarlat-la-Canéda market is held in place de la Liberté, along with a full-scale fair that attracts locals from all around the surrounding countryside.

The exceptional number of buildings registered or classified as historical makes of Sarlat-la-Canéda the first European city in term of inheritance. For this reason Sarlat-la-Canéda has been used in many movies. On the first Sunday in July the Félibrée, a typical Périgord village fair where everybody is disguised, animates Sarlat-la-Canéda.

Reviews

Feedback from previous guests

Castelfret has exceeded our expectations. We booked only 2 weeks in advance and yet everything was sorted clearly and quickly. On arrival the house was immaculate with thoughtful, comfortable and practical design. We loved our time in and around the pool, and enjoyed the restaurants and beautiful buildings of Monflanquin. Monpazier and Gavaudun were our favourite trips.We hope to return with family/friends some time.

Gemma, Sam & Avril




Our time in France has been very enjoyable due to the comfort and tranquility of this beautiful property. We found it well equipped and spent countless hours relaxing by the pool. The weather has been kind to us and we made the most of exploring the surrounding villages such as Monpazier & Monflanquin, and we also particularly enjoyed visiting various markets in the mornings. The barbecue was great for when we wanted to cook in the evenings, looking out over Monflanquin in the sunset. There was nothing keeping us from enjoying our stay, and we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Ray, Gill & Abby




We have had a fantastic time at Castelfret. The house is incredibly well equipped and the location is perfect. Being able to walk into Monflanquin has been a real plus. We have enjoyed meals at Bar des Arcades, Le Bistrot du Prince Noir, La Bastide des Oliviers and Pizzeria La Baldoria ( recommend to book ahead).The thursday night market is a must (try the snails!)

The first 11 days have been extremely hot and although the remaining days were cooler it allowed us to visit Monpazier, Belves and St.Cyprien - all worth a visit.

Plenty of wildlife to see from the terrace, including red squirrels,hares, woodpeckers and amazingly a pair of hoopoes!

All in all an amazing house in an amazing location.

Richard, Marion, Amy & Matt




Fantastic villa with everything you could want. We were lucky enough to be here on Bastille Day so enjoyed the wonderful fireworks display from Monflanquin. For a special meal slightly further afield, La Tour des Vents in Monbazillac is a must. Will definitely be back at some point in the future.

Michelle, Phil & Nancy




What more can be said! Lovely house and garden - lots of interesting wildlife, plenty of places to visit and more important, lunch! Thanks to Gary & Louise for their welcome and service

Robert & Cherry




We have had the most wonderful holiday here at Castelfret. The house is so beautiful and well equipped. The grounds and views are so beautiful and peaceful and the veranda is the perfect place to enjoy it all with a cup of coffee! Weather has been super hot so very much appreciated the pool. So many lovely restaurants to enjoy in Monflanquin town - we also recommend the market on Thursday! Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Gillian & Nathaniel




“Yet again we have had a wonderful holiday in France. The house is delightful – in a beautiful, relaxed setting and inside modern, clean and well equipped. ...the weather has been perfect wall to wall sunshine for two weeks. We have travelled the area a lot – always a beautiful village or castle in easy reach. All in all a terrific place for a holiday. Thank you Castelfret for making this our home for two great weeks!”

The Howards September 2016




“The most relaxing holiday we have had. The house was everything you need and the location is perfect. We’ve visited a few towns on the cooler days, our favourite being Monpazier. The pool was perfect for the hotter days. Thank you for a memorable family holiday.”

The Knowles family




“Super villa set in a tranquil location, well appointed and equipped. We all had greta fun with the new table tennis table – thank you. Highest temp we had was 31 degrees so lovely to cool off in the pool. Night time walks and views of the Bastide town a real joy. Thank you for a lovely two weeks.”

Clarke family - August 2016




We had a wonderful time at Castelfret and would definitely consider going back to the area again.
