After picking up our rental car at Bordeaux Airport late in the afternoon we had a nightmarish ride to Monpazier sans GPS. We arrived in the evening, shell shocked and demoralized. John and Edell took us in hand and lent us their Tom Tom for the next two days of our three night stay. That allowed us to travel with some confidence for the rest of our trip. And John gave us a very well drawn map for our next stop.
Aside from the amazing generosity of our hosts in all respects, our stay at Chez Edell was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast includes wonderful breads, giant croissants, fruit, yogurt, cereal, french coffee and on request John makes terrific cheese omelets. John and Edell are very helpful with sight seeing, restaurant dining and just a joy to talk to. They have a nice dog too!
Monpazier is a nice bastide town with a Wednesday Market and some good shops and restaurants; try the seafood paella in the market if it's available; also a local cheese Trappe Echournac is terrific and available at the local Spar.
