We have been to many Bastides in France. This is without a doubt the most impressive and clean/organized one we have ever visited. Highly recommend.

We spent a week in Monpazier and were surprised every day by something new. There is a market on Thursdays but also an antique market on the weekends. Lovely shops in the cloisters of the square plus a bar, a cafe and a restaurant.

Beautiful medieval town quite unspoilt by modern life. The architecture is worth seeing ( unlike most medieval towns it’s built on Pythagoras grid), and lots of lovely local shops selling handmade goods.

This is a perfect example of the local bastide villages of this region. It was lovely to have a drink in the square and watch the world go by.
