Your hosts live in an apartment in the building overhead for the majority of the rental period. We are delighted that you have chosen to stay with us and we are on hand from your arrival time to offer help and advice.

Other things to note

The house occupies a central street location and although tranquil most of the time, guests may be subjected to the hustle and bustle of a busy little town as it springs into life during the day. There is no dedicated parking outside the house although there is plenty of space nearby. We have tried where possible to retain original features including wooden flooring so from time to time you may hear movement on the floors overhead.
There is a second apartment on the first floor, the top floor is occupied by your hosts.

This lovely apartment is perfectly positioned in the beautiful town of Monpazier, and a great base for visiting the sites in the area. The apartment itself is spacious, light and very stylishly furnished. It is well equipped and well stocked. We were warmly greeted by Derek, the owner, who also left some welcoming goodies, and we settled in very quickly. The pool area is well-presented. Derek has as much information as is needed to make the most of your time in the area. We loved our time here; the apartment is perfect, and the hosting warm and friendly.

Amanda and Derek have a lovely apartment in the beautiful town of Monpazier. The apartment was clean and modern, and have everything you need to enjoy your stay. They were the perfect hosts, and left us a welcome hamper which was a lovely touch. The apartment is ideally situated, with the main square of Monpazier less than a minute walk. We'd highly recommend, and we'll be definitely back - this time for longer and with a car so we can explore the picturesque area.

This was my first experience with Airbnb and I was blown away! This is if not the cleanest space I ever rented it certainly is up there with one of the top 3. I have never smelled fresher linen and towels when renting. The welcome pack with bread, wine, milk etc. was very welcoming and much appreciated. The location could not be better, a few meters from the village square but just far enough to feel part of village life but not to be bothered by the hustle and bustle that could carry on. The decor in the apartment is perfect and the bed very comfortable. Although the description mentioned a washer and drier these are actually not available inside the apartment but Derek did offer to do whatever laundry I might have. I found the village of Monpazier much more friendly than other villages I have stayed in the area and would love to return to this spot in the future. Thank you Amanda & Derek for taking such pride in your apartment it truly is a little paradise.

My husband and I have just returned from travelling the UK and France. We wanted to stay in the Dordonge Region in a Bastide village, living as the locals. What a Gem we found in Monpazier and Derek and Amanda's La Maison Anglaise. From the moment we arrived, and for the 6nights at La Maison Anglaise, we were welcomed, looked after and made totally at home. Derek and Amanda have done a wonderful job in bringing this old house back to life. The apartment was superb. Heaps of room. Tastefully renovated, with every amenity and facility you could need. The pool and surrounds is a great bonus, and a lovely place to relax on a hot afternoon, watching the sun go down. The Gite, is only a very short walk from the town square, with all the shops, bars and restaurants on hand. La Maison Anglaise at Monpazier is a great location to use as a base to explore the Dordonge. We would highly recommend Derek and Amanda and their La Maison Anglaise . Well done to you both, and thank you for your hospitality and for making this part of our trip so memorable. Monica and Peter ps. tried to put this on Trip Advisor also, but they would not accept it.

Amanda and Derek were absolutely fantastic. Right from the word go, they pulled out all the stops in terms of making us feel hugely welcome in their beautiful apartment. They even made a lovely welcome package out of scones, jam and white wine! The standard couldn't have been higher and they were amazingly accommodating of our requirements. They arranged collection and drop off of us since we didnt have a car which was lovely. Monpazier itself its a little gem of a location to spend a few days relaxing. The old medieval town has about 12 places to eat, most of which fall around the old market square. We actually ate at home twice out of 3 night as we wanted to enjoy the charming building and relax by the pool. If you stay longer than 3 nights suggest you get a car to explore the surroundings. Thanks both for your lovely hospitality, best of luck with your france project! Tom and Linda

Married to Derek for 37 years. We both run our own businesses, I am a Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in Musculoskeletal Pain and Sports injuries, Derek is a painter and decorator.
We like to stay fit and do circuit training together. Derek also runs and I ride our horse. We both love to cook, Derek is the BBQ and Chinese chef and I cook anything providing it is out of a cookbook.
We spent most of our holidays in France and Europe. For 10 years, our focus had been with a holiday home in the french Languedoc which we shared with family and friends. Three years ago we moved to a new french home in the medieval bastide town of Monpazier. This beautiful town is nestled in the Dordogne, an area rich in its history of the 100 year war. We are loving the area with its abundant markets, restaurants and stunning scenery.
Derek spent nearly two years renovating the house to provide our visitors with comfortable stylish accomodation, a place to truly relax in after a day of sightseeing.

5 things I couldn't be without: family especially our two gorgeous grown up daughters, friends, great food, movies and skiing.
