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

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).
Ray and Jacinta are wonderful hosts and make every effort to ensure you have the most comfortable and relaxing stay at their de luxe B&B. We were the first official paying guests and part of a group who took all the rooms for a party at a chateau nearby. We felt we had the best place, with a swimming pool, luxurious bedrooms and close to the picturesque town of Monpazier with stunning market place, shops and restaurants...
We shall be returning as soon as possible and letting our friends know of this hidden discovery! Don't look any further...you have found the Best Place!
