Lac de Lougratte (25km) offers the nearest beach for cooling off on a hot day. Golf courses can be found at Beaumont-du-Perigord (15 km), Siorac-en-Perigord (27 km) and Mouleydier (35 km). The area is ideal for cycling (not too many hills) and walking. Among other options are tennis, canoeing, hot air ballooning and horse riding.
A number of wineries are located approximately 40 kms from Monpazier. Many offer tastings and sales, one of the better known being Chateau de Monbazillac. A visit can include a tour of the chateau, built in 1550.
Monpazier has several excellent dining options in the village, offering quality dishes at very reasonable prices. There is a Michelin star restaurant in Trémolat, just 29kms away. At Le Vieux Logis (05 53 22 80 06) you can sample 9 dégustation (tasting) courses, experiencing the very best of French cuisine. Nearby, several traditional workers cafés still provide four course lunches for as little as €13 – including wine! They include Chez Jeanne at Pomarède (33 km), the subject of a book by Australian authoress Mary Moody, that has been run by the same family for over a century.
