Our family spent a few months living in Monflanquin and it was a wonderful, enriching experience. The village is beautiful but not overly touristy - perched on a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside. But the real allure of Monflanquin is the people. Whether they are lifelong locals or more recent arrivals from other parts of France or elsewhere we found them warm and welcoming. If you involve yourself in village life you will find your inputs doubly rewarded. For us now it is very much a home away from home.”
