We were there on a Monday in October, when just about everything is closed. Despite that, we loved our visit. We practically had the town to ourselves and this is a truly worthwhile bastide to visit. October is a wonderful time to visit this region, but you have to expect some things to be closed.
This hotel is in a manor home that has been very nicely renovated. Our room was very large, comfortable, and wonderfully decorated in a style befitting the age of the manor. We did not find the decor faded at all. The bathroom was excellent. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful and their English is perfect. The dinner in the restaurant was the best during our two week trip to France. I requested in advance if they would be able to accommodate my gluten intolerance in the restaurant. The owner, Marige, very kindly made me special gluten free olive and carrot muffins out of almond flour that were incredibly special. We added Monpazier as almost an afterthought at the end of our trip to the Dordogne and Lot because it was 45 minutes from Bergerac, where we returned our rental car. Monpazier was the surprise treat of our trip to this incredibly beautiful region. This lovely little town, or bastide, felt like being in Italy, Spain, and France all at once. The drive from St. Cirq la Popie was easy and beautiful (make sure you have a GPS for this entire region). I would encourage anyone to include this town on a trip to the Perigord region and also encourage them to stay at this hotel. October is a great time to visit this region. The weather is beautiful and the tourist population is way down.
