“What a wonderful place - perfect for Monpazier and surrounding area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

Ray and Jacinta looked after us a treat. The lovely house is located just a few miles from the centre of Monpazier down a little track off the main road. The crickets and tree-frogs made a beautiful evening and morning chorus. The house was wondeful as was the breakfast of croissants and coffee. We would definitely come back, beautiful surroundings, comfortable bed and good company.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2011

I jus returned from Monpazier, and stayed again with Ray & Jacinta, as my last visit was so pleasant. Everything is still just as good, except it's now winter and the log fire was roaring. Incredibly gracious, thoughtful hosts create a lovely easy atmosphere in their home. Although most of rural France hibernates for the winter, I found the area to be really beautiful, the scenery is gorgeous at this time. Nearby Villereal market was still buzzing on Saturday morning (can't go past Monsieur Blanchard's famous patisserie - you feel like you've gone straight to gourmet heaven!) and we had a lovely meal at Les Remparts in Castillones.

Only stayed one night but were made to feel really welcome by Jacinta and Ray.
Beautifully renovated farm house in wonderfully quiet unspoilt setting.
Highly recommended.

We had four peaceful nights as B&B guests, and can't speak more highly of this beautiful house. So much care and attention to detail has gone into the restoration of this lovely property. The owners have managed to retain the rustic charm of the original farmhouse and add elegant modern conveniences. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, and everything is beautifully appointed. While we were there we struck a 'cold spell' but the pool looked fantastic for summer guests. Jacinta, our host, was welcoming and friendly, not to mention incredibly helpful with tips and advice as we explored the area. Monpazier is a gorgeous part of the Dordogne with several really good restaurants and a great Thursday market. If you feel fit enough this house is even close enough to walk into the village. If not, just enjoy the peace and quiet of their farm.

We stayed at the end of October and we're lucky enough to have some lovely sunny autumn weather. The house was a perfect place to relax and Ray and Jacinta couldn't have been anymore helpfully or friendly.
A great place to use as a base to explore the surrounding Chateau and Bastide towns. Horse riding at a small place near Villereal was both very enjoyable and a bargin.
Sarlat is definitely a gem and should be explored at night when the narrow streets and lights are magical.
The longer drive to Geoffre de Padriac is well worth it and the boat ride in the caves was as good as expected.

I stayed at Domaine des Faures with my wife for a luxurious few days. Flights to Bergerac were good value and the house is only about 30 mins away from the airport. The setting is stunning. A recently refurbished manor house set amongst rolling countryside (and cows!) and well located for visiting the Bastide villages of Issigeac, Monpazier and Chateau Biron. We hired bikes and spent most days exploring cafes, vineyards and Chateaux before hurtling home to dive straight in the pool!

The owners, Ray & Jacinta were excellent hosts. On hand for advice and occasional Bar-B-Q'ing feasts but non intrusive so that you could really relax. They've only recently completed the luxurious refurbishment so the rooms were immaculate. L'Occitane toiletries were a welcome surprise too!

We didn't have the most perfect weather but probably for the best as it meant that we explored the area by bike and kayak (!) rather than vegetating by the pool.

We only came for a brief visit but wish we could have stayed much longer. Ray and Jacinta are great hosts who know the locale (Montpazier which is very close is delightful) and seem ready to help with ideas but let you do your own thing. The house has been renovated recently, looks like the photos on the website (not always true!) and is airy (big benefit on a hot day). Lovely walk through the woods to nearby Biron Chateau. About half an hour form Bergerac airport (only problem: watch out for the turning off the main road - sign not that easy to see).
