“Luxury & Homely Accommodation with Class”

Bastide 1353 Monpazier was our holiday home base for 3 weeks during August and September.
This very well appointed 2 storied home with modern appliances, top end luxury furniture & chattels along with high quality bed linen has been tastefully done to blend in and enhance the romantic experience of living in a 650 year old building made just out of stone and timber beams.
After the first day of venturing out into the beautiful historic walled country village and exploring the market square ringed by large medieval stone archways with people enjoying a coffee and croissant sitting under large sun umbrellas and going down many cobble stoned alleyways, browsing in local specialty shops, meeting the local French residents, we returned home to our flash accommodation with our booty. Locally produced and cooked duck, fresh breads, cheeses, fruit and of course the wine!. We settled into the candle lit courtyard. We ate and drank and talked until the early hours in 26 degrees under a clear starry night. We felt as though we had won first prize in a lottery.
Every day we walked or drove the car out into the surrounding countryside , visiting small towns with market places selling local produce, antiques and crafts. There were castles, vineyards, historic sites and many small country lanes where you would see wild deer standing on the edge of a clearing next to a forest nibbling on green shoots. Farmers fields full of sunflowers, maize, fruit trees and walnut groves. At the end of the day we would return back to base to the courtyard to eat and drink and talk about what we had seen and experienced.
There are many restaurants with terrific menus offering the local specialties of the region.
The countryside around Monpazier and the Dordogne region is very pretty and magical and no wonder the French Government has given Monpazier the highest heritage rating thus preserving this idyllic Bastide for all to enjoy for generations to come.
We cannot praise this accommodation and surrounding countryside high enough. We love the food, the wine and the local people and a place that can deliver a "sense of occasion"
The best holiday we have ever had and we will be back.

“Exceeded all expectations!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed for 3 weeks in this wonderful house with another couple, from New Zealand. As with most people, we do substantial research, before booking a property/holiday location. So, after seeing the photos online, of the house and reading about the village of Monpazier, we had great expectations of what was to come. After collecting our hire car from Bordeaux airport and driving, we began the approx 2 hour drive to Monpazier. The roads got smaller and smaller and the scenery prettier and prettier - at one point right through vineyards, with glimpses of the mandatory magnificent chateaux perched high in the hill sides. And so it was, that we arrived in Monpazier, at our new home for the next 3 weeks. First impressions were of the beautiful street, where the house was located - the mairie just opposite and most of all, proximity to the village square (approx 30m). So far, this was awesome! Then we went into the house... and spent the next 15 mins walking around and around, absolutely smitten! Yes the photos looked good, but this was even better than we could have imagined - it was perfect! Beautifully and tastefully decorated, with a fully equipped kitchen (and butlers pantry), a fantastic courtyard and bedrooms (4) with gorgeous linen (each with its own bathroom). We were a group of two couples, but we also had 2 lots of visitors coming to stay from England and Germany - they were going to be impressed! The village is picture postcard - with every facility you need and wonderful, friendly people. We only ventured out of the village probably only every 2nd or in some cases every 3rd day. Our brief was to experience an authentic village experience, without the usual tourist rushing around. Having said that, they was an enormous amount to see and do within the area - we never drove for more than an hour and a half away from our base and still there were places that we never managed to visit. I would recommend this house and the village of Monpazier, without hesitation - I don't think it gets any better than this!

“Bastide 1353 - Great House, Lovely Location”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Bastide 1353 is a terrific place to stay at in Monpazier. The house has wonderful character with spacious living / dining / kitchen downstairs and 4 bedrooms upstairs, all with ensuites.
The kitchen is really well set up with every dish, utensil, pan you could ever need! Linen was of good quality & showers had great water pressure. . Only 1 minutes walk from the town square the location is terrific, especially for the Thursday market. Monpazier has great shops for bread, meat etc, all within easy walking distance of the house.

“A perfect holiday venue, in all ways”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I loved our time there, there were various family members in the group and we were all able to have our own beautiful bedroom and ensuite...a major bonus!!!! - the home had everything we could possible have needed.
Living in the heart of this gorgeous little village made the experience so much more special, a unique experience and the fact this village was the centre of the surrounding region was more of a bonus, and each day we were able to easily travel tothe nearby towns and go explore....
Great restaurants in the vicinity too!
