Trip Planning, France, Group Tours

Soaring chateaux, glorious gardens, fabulous Perigourdine cuisine...join a friendly small group!

Location: Monpazier, Dordogne, South West France


Experience the flavours and colors of Autumn in the Dordogne and slow to the rhythm of French village life. For ten indulgent days, 22 September to 1 October, 2014, join a small, easy-going group exploring this peaceful pocket of France, guided by your host, Rosemary Vine of Dordogne Country House Holidays.

We'll feast like royalty as we:

  • visit majestic landmarks including Chateau du Losse, Chateau du Fenelon, Chateau Monbazillac, the Abbey of Cadouin, & Chateau de Biron
  • go behind the garden gates of some of the most beautiful private & public gardens in the area
  • cruise the tranquil Dordogne, taking in vistas of fairytale castles and hamlets from the river
  • plunge into the lively village markets - always fun, always a bargain!
  • experience classic Perigourdine cuisine at Michelin recommended restaurants and authentic auberges
  • sample the superb wines of Monbazillac and Bergerac
  • explore postcard-perfect villages including La Roque Gageac, Sarlat, Domme, Issigeac, & Monflanquin
  • enjoy intimate casual suppers at home, sharing stories from each day's adventures

We are passionate about all things Perigourdine, and we aim to share that passion with you.  Our homebase is Villa Ste Therese, an authentically renovated gentilhommiere  or 'gentleman's country house' in 13th century Monpazier, listed as "One of the Most Beautiful Villages in France". And because the Villa is an easy 700 metre stroll to the heart of the village, you can absorb the easy rhythm of French village life. Join us on the 'croissant run' each morning, or sun yourself in the village square over a drink in the afternoon.  We pace each day to give you time to truly immerse yourself and wind down.

Our guests do not feel like they've come 'on tour', but more like they've joined a relaxed, casual house party.   We want you to feel the the Villa is your home for your stay. Each bedroom is spacious and light-filled, with its own ensuite. And the Villa is set in four peaceful acres of park-like grounds with stunning vistas, so there's always a nook in the garden or on one of the terraces to curl up with a book or sneak in a snooze before dinner!

No need for endless packing or checking timetables - simply settle into your peaceful maison in Monpazier, let us pamper you, and enjoy an authentic experience of this magical part of France.
