Chez Edell, located a couple of minutes walk from the centre square of Monpazier, is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful part of France.
Monpazier, situated in the Dordogne region in the South of France, is often called the “jewel” of the Bastide villages. Although it changed hands several times during the 100 Years War, it is considered the best preserved bastide in France. Monpazier was built with four arches leading into the village, two to the north and two to the south of the village. Somewhere along the way, one of these arches to the south was destroyed – Chez Edèll forms part of this arch and the base and some of the walls of the original arch still form a part of the house.

Many attractions are within easy reach of the Chambres d'Hotes and Gite, including vineyards producing the renowned red wines of the Bergerac and Bordeaux region and world famous caves featuring some of Europe’s oldest prehistoric paintings, or subterranean rivers and beautiful stalactite-filled caverns. The Dordogne, traditionally called the Perigord, is often referred to as the Land of 1001 Chateaux and many are nearby – including Biron, Puymartin, Monbazillac, Marqueyssac with its extensive gardens, and the formidable fortress of Castelnaud. Numerous historic and charming villages are also nearby; Belves, Villereal, Beaumont, Domme, Sarlat, Cadouin with its cloistered abbey, and Bergerac with its airport serving Paris, Brussels, Rotterdam and several destinations in the UK. Monpazier hosts a colourful weekly market and many entertaining events including farmers markets, antique fairs, medieval pageants and music festivals. The region is also famous for its food – particularly foie gras, the richly aromatic truffle and delicious cepes mushrooms.
