This first floor apartment is one of two apartments in this elegant late 19th century house, La Maison Anglaise. Finished to a high specification in a contemporary style, this spacious apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one ensuite )and a lounge kitchen diner and views over the surrounding countryside. The owners have recently renovated the property and have gone to a lot of lengths to create a beautiful comfortable fully equipped apartment with a wow factor. The property boasts an outside pool which is shared by both apartments. It has a south facing terrace and stands within 50 paces from the centre of the beautiful historic 13th century bastide of Monpazier. Climb out of the pool and dry off, and within minutes you can be dining in the main square. The town listed as one of the "Plus beaux villages de France" has an abundance of shops and restaurants.The property is ideally located for visitors seeking a base for touring the Dordogne and Lot region. Monpazier is thirty minutes by car from Bergerac airport and two hours from Bordeaux. The apartment offers real comfort with sofas, large luxury Hypnos beds( a superking in the second bedroom which can be converted to twins), walk in showers and a Juliette balcony off the master bedroom which catches the late afternoon sun.The kitchen has been fully equiped to enable you to shop for delicious food, cook and live like the locals.
The nearby main cobbled square is home to a weekly market and an auditorium for plays, musical recitals and live concerts. The surrounding old medieval buildings are squeezed in side by side, their upper floors bathed in sunshine, below the doorways of the shops and restaurants hide under the shaded arcaded walkways. Relax with a glass of wine or a coffee in the plaza and enjoy this quintessential french experience.
The region is home to the delicious Bergerac wines and the famous Monbazillac sweet wine made from grapes affected by the noble rot. There are dozens of vineyards east of the airport with very reasonably priced nice appellations and the vignobles are only too happy to offer you a "degustation", a generous taste of their wine.
The area surrounding the Dordogne river is dotted with stunning chateaux and pretty villages, bustling markets and great restaurants. Tour along the river in a canoe or for the less intrepid a Gabarre boat. There is so much to see within an hours drive of the house. In high season the surrounding villages host evening soirees where you can turn up with your own wine, plates and cutlery and then take your pick from an array of food served up by the market vendors. Dance the night away to live music.
