Edward 1er, Monpazier
The Edward 1er had a very attractive special on offer when we passed thru the southern Dordogne. Three nights for the price of two, how could we resist? The expat owner/managers had operated the hotel for over 10 years and have done a marvellous job renovating and extending the property. A new restaurant and several rooms have been added where an old barn once was, and it is all done with great style. At the end of a long summer season everything still looked clean, neat and tidy with no great signs of wear and tear. Beds were comfortable, the location was quiet and all the usual amenities were available. We did select the “basic” room and maybe it was a little on the smaller side while the shower screen seemed to be an accident waiting to happen. But overall, we enjoyed our time at the Edward 1er and had no complaints of the hotel. The little Bastide of Monpazier was also one of the more authentic small villages in the region where quite a few folk actually still resided.
