“Like staying with family”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Monpazier has it just right with a good mix of tourists and locals.
Edell and John's B&B is within 50 metres of the square. They are genuinely warm people and treat you like family. Their breakfasts around the dining table are special - not only is the food excellent but it's a great way to meet the other guests and have a conversation with John and Edell as well. Hospitality and attention to detail are the highlights of this B&B. Loved it!

We stayed 4 nights at Chez Edell and from the moment we arrived we were made so welcome. The breakfasts were lovely, the bowls of fresh fruit salad & the wonderful pastries will be in our memories for a long time. By the time we came to leave it felt like we had known John & Edell for much longer than 5 days. We hope to be back in Monpazier soon & we will definitely stay again. Thank you!

This place was wonderful. The hosts, husband and wife team Edell and John, have really done their homework, and can advise on local attractions, restaurants, where to get beer, and just about anything else you can think of. They are natural English speaking, but can speak French as well. The breakfast was wonderful - and when you go - ask for one of John's wonderful cheese omelettes! The Hotel is actually a medieval house (some 600 or 700 hundred years old), and has creaky, and sloping upstairs floors, but this simply adds to the charm. The towels are replaced every day, and Edell provides beautiful bedlinen, with comfortable pillows.
A charming couple, who take there responsibilities very seriously, I cannot recommend this place enough.

Room Tip: We had Room 2 (a double), and it was street facing. A large streetlight on the corner of the opposi...

We had a lovely time at Chez Edell and can only agree with other visitors. Great location, amazing bed linen & towels, fantastic hosts and wait until you get to try the omelettes! Although out of season the town still had some lovely restaurants open for dinner in the evening and the chateau at Biron is well worth a visit. Thank you, John and Edell,for looking after us so well on our recent trip to Monpazier.

Lovely town, restaurants and shops, characterful house, genuine warm welcome, fuss-free nice room, crispy white bed linen, comfortable bed, plenty of hot water, great night sleep. Copious great breakfast.
Sadly, we had to move on. But as the day worn away we change our plans and... Went back!
Luckily there was a free room and it started again. Lovely town, restaurants and shops, characterful house, genuine warm welcome...
You are warned: you'll crave to go back.

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a 5 week trip around France. What a gorgeous establishment. Edell and John have created a wonderful, inviting and comfortable ambience in their 600+ year old home in the bastide of Monpazier. The room was quiet, warm and comfortable. The private bathroom was spotlessly clean and functional. Breakfasts were more than we expected and the addition of cereal was most welcome after a couple of weeks of French breakfasts. John will cook eggs to order and the range of breads, preserves and yoghurts was amazing. John was full of local knowledge for where to enjoy a scenic drive or a chateau. There's also an amazing aqueduct just outside the town which we chanced upon in our drives. It was also a nice break to be able to speak English with our hosts - we are from Australia and have only "school" French and in many of the places we had stayed up until now, French was spoken exclusively. John and Edell have a repetoire of interesting stories to tell and we enjoyed their company each morning. I would highly recommend this B & b to anyone travelling in the area.
