Monpazier was the surprise treat in our two week trip to the Dordogne. I have visited this area before and knew how beautiful it was. We added Monpazier as an afterthought because it was close to Bergerac, where we were dropping off our rental car. Now, we would definitely include it on our itinerary. The drive from St. Cirq la Popie (another charming destination) was easy with a GPS and beautiful. Monpazier felt like being in Italy, Spain, and France all at once. Try not to go on a Monday. Almost everything is closed. Despite that, we truly enjoyed the town. The architecture is fascinating and beautiful.
