Monflanquin is a historic 13th century hilltop bastide village located approximately 20 minutes north east of Villeneuve-Sur-Lot and is chosen as one of France’s prettiest medieval villages. The house is located just four doors down from the village center with its lively restaurants and bustling weekly market both offering gourmet food and fine local wines. The village has a health club, swimming pool, bike hire and access to horseback riding and tennis. Lakes, canoeing and golf courses are all available nearby. The village is high on this bastide hilltop so Monflanquin enjoys beautiful breezes and panoramic views.

Absulutely no complaints. Great place.
Great place in a wonderful little bastide town. Well equipped kitchen, huge bedrooms and bathrooms, not to mention big living room and kitchen. Rooftop deck was lots of fun. We did cocktail hour up there, watching cats on a neighboring roof stalk the pigeons. Great wifi service. We would come back in a heartbeat. Michael and Vince sent careful advice annd directions, quite precise. Note that the recommended bakery is down the hill and several hundred yards to the left. A great value, we thought. The only minor irritant was the second floor toilet that ran water longer than it should. A few adjustments to the float solved the problem, though a replacement of the flapper will be needed. When that is the worst thing one can describe, you know this is a great place to stay.!
This home is wonderful. The beds are comfy. The bathrooms are great. The kitchen is well appointed for cooking. There is a super marche close by and the village has anything else. Parking is free and easy. There are many sites nearby. The roads are easy to navigate.
I am looking forward to returning. 1 week is hardly enough here.
A great house in a beautiful old town.
We have just returned from a fabulous week away in this lovely house. The roof top terrace really makes it special and the views are amazing! An unexpected bonus was the Monflanquin music and food festival, top artists playing all around the town. A highlight of the week was the evening food tasting event in the beautiful square and more music! There is also an excellent open air municipal pool on the doorstep. The house has everything you could need and lots of local information, including walking routes, which we found very helpful. It is a walking and cycling paradise with quiet roads leading through unspoilt countryside. Michael was very helpful and provided all the information we needed; replying promptly to any questions we had. Would love to return and stay longer!
This house suited us perfectly.
This house served us well. It had every amenity and proved to be the perfect spot for a rest after two weeks of traveling in France. The owners were instantly responsive to any inquiry. Needless to say, the rooftop terrace provided a spectacular view.
Roomy, airy, comfortable home in a historic and friendly village.
The house is comfortably furnished with plenty of space and bathrooms and a full laundry and a full family-sized kitchen. The beds are comfortable, but high. Linens are pleasing, clean, and adequate for all weather and needs. Proper use of the windows and shutters will keep the house cool in the summer and quiet when needed. There were two boulangeries, one butcher, and one epicerie within easy walking distance, and a full village market on Thursdays. The village is large enough to enjoy walking and the tourisme office can help with finding hikes/walks to take in the area. The next-door bar/café has great food and is managed well so that it is not a disturbance to peaceful enjoyment of the home. A quick drive or a long walk gets one to a full grocery/liquor/house-hold items store, pharmacy, and a great boulangerie/patisserie. It is easy to drive to numerous historical sites and other bastide villages but it really helps to have a GPS and the local maps from each tourisme office.
A Most AMAZING French Vacation
I just returned from the most wonderful vacation I have had in the past 5 years.
My best friend and I decided to do a girls trip to the SW of France. We chose a Beautiful 300 year old home in Monflanquin. When we arrived, and opened the front door, what a wonderful surprise!! This house is spectacular. Beautifully furnished. A cozy and beautifully equipped kitchen. The Beds and pillows were sooo comfortable. Clean and wonderfully stocked. I felt so at home within minutes of exploring the house. The owners Michael and Vince, were extremely helpful, with all the information they provided. They were so willing to answer any questions we had in preparing for our trip to France, from sites to see, restaurants, tips on money exchange, navigating the towns and villages, weekly farmers markets in the different nearby villages,even recommendations on CD's to learn the language. The village of Monflanquin is so beautiful and friendly.
There is so much to see in the Area. After a full day of Sightseeing it was such a joy to come home to our beautiful home away from home at 8 Rue St Marie, in this Beautiful old Badtide Town of Monglanquin,open up a bottle of wine and head upstairs to the Fabulous Roof top Deck... To watch the Falling Stars and listen to the Hooty Night Owls .
I look forward to my return Trip next year
