This exceptional French manor house sits within its own 100 acre organic farm, a haven for wildlife and wild flowers. Meticulously renovated and refurbished to the highest modern standards, this is a beautiful villa with a fine history dating back to 1673. Thick stone walls help keep the manor house cool on hot summer days, whilst high ceilings and large windows ensure light, bright and airy rooms throughout.
Locally, the attractive medieval village (bastide) of Monpazier has restaurants and a market each Thursday, and a pleasant stroll past picturesque cottages to the local Chateau de Biron is a must. This whole area is rich with fortified medieval villages (bastides), such as Belves, Villereal and Montflanquin, where you will find numerous weekly markets selling local produce. You may also like to visit at least one of the spectacular caves in the region: try the Bara Bahau caves at Le Bugue where the wall paintings date from the Ice Age, or the famous caves at Les Eyzies. Slightly further afield but still easily accessible from Domaine de Maitre are towns like Sarlat-le-Caneda with its atmospheric medieval centre, and Rocamadour, the second-most visited tourist destination in France.
You may like to visit some of the stunning gardens that have been created in this region, such as those at Marqueyssac, or to vary the pace and spend some time at the karting centre in nearby Bergerac. Bergerac, founded on the banks of the Dordogne, is surrounded by over 100 vineyards, so there's lots of tasting to do! Staying at this lovely French manor house, which is available all year round, you will be in the heart of authentic France, with something for everyone close at hand.
Gorgeous manor house, beautifully refurbished, with great owners who live within the estate and who really ensure that guests are happy and enjoying their lovely home. The rural setting is so peaceful and the house so comfortable. All who stay here say the same “lovely bedrooms, superb beds and just oozes comfort.” This villa is very popular and one of my favourites in the Dordogne.

Domaine de Maitre
A beautiful and peaceful place to stay.
It was perfect
Mrs J Fisher
We booked this property for a family celebration and it was perfect. It was secluded and although the owners are on site they were not intrusive in any way, and very helpful when asked for information. The house is furnished as for a family home and did not feel like a rented property. There was plenty of space and the accommodation particularly the three bathrooms allowed each of the three families privacy.
Domaine de Maitre holiday
A great villa for families. Spacious and comfortable and extremely well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
A good stay
We have loved our time here and would like to return next year if allowed. Galerie M in Monpazier does fantastic simple fresh food - well worth a visit. What a fabulous house - if you decide to sell up let us know. Mrs Purslow
We had a brilliant time, everyone was entertained. We are sure we would like to come back again. Master Purslow
We had a wonderful time. The swimming pool was fantastic. Miss Hamblin
Stay at Domaine de Maitre
Excellent info (pack, map etc.). The owners were incredibly kind to us.
A great holiday
A truly beautiful home and a wonderfully easy place to relax! Everything you need for a great holiday in a beautiful location. Thanks to the owners for their hospitality. The Sindersons absolutely love everything about the house, the gardens, the location, the fantastic pool ...etc.etc.
A wonderful week
We had a wonderful week satisfying everyone from 11 to 80! The house is beautiful and on a practical level really well equipped - thank-you for the dishwasher tablets something we usually have to but a huge box of! The boys loved the pool, table tennis and badminton and we loved them being occupied!
