Description of object

The Bayle House is all that remains of the arcaded square which once upon a time provided shelter for the shops. Two ogival openings dating from the thirteenth century can be seen on its east façade.
Built in 1282 by order of Jean de Grailly (Senechal of English King Edward and Captal de Buch). The house is on the corner of the Main Square, surrounded by other restored buildings. In a 20 mile radius you can explore medieval castles (One Hundred Years War). Castelnaud, Beynac, Bastides, Domme, Monpazier, Bergerac. Pre-historic caves (Lascaux), horse riding, golf. Canoeing on the Dordogne River, fishing, cycling, gastronomy, markets.

Accommodation. Two bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin). Dining room. Bathroom with shower. Electric heating in every room. Linen, cutlery, dishes etc provided


Location of object

It´s the bailiff´s house. The bailiff is the King´s representative (English King for Bastide of Molières, or Bastide of Lalinde) in the bastide. We can imagine that Jean de Grailly (Captal de Buch) spent several nights here during the building of the bastide
Main bedroom is the one with the gothic windows. The small one is just on top of the bed. As you can perceive it´s very pleasant to wake up with the view of the main street, and the church. The other two rooms (living room-kitchen, and two beds bedroom) show a view to the main square (la Halle)
Kitchen is equipped with a normal refrigerator, and a small gas cooker with two fires. I recommend going out and tasting local gastronomy, or go picnic, more than staying at home. Cooking at home could be a good option for dinners, except if we have the chance of a "marché nocturne", in Cadouin or in Le Buisson de Cadouin, or any other taking place nearby.
Every room has electric heating. Hot water is supplied by gas-heater (no cuts). There is a toilet with shower.


Town: France, PERIGORD, Molieres

A Brief History
Founded in 1284 by Jean de Grailly, the Seneschal of Aquitaine, on behalf of King Edward I of England, the bastide of Molières was never finished and therefore never experienced the urban expansion of Monpazier. In 1316 Ghilem de Toulouse, Edward II of England’s seneschal in Périgord, chose to make Molières his base and to build his castle there. This too, remained unfinished. The town was ravaged by the Hundred Years War then rebuilt only to be destroyed once more by the ferocious battles of the Wars of Religion.




The Bastide
The bastide was planned along regular lines and all its streets converge in the central square. Molières, the bastide, was never surrounded by arcaded houses and only the Bayle House is raised above its arches.
Molières is, nonetheless, a delightful village with the added charms of a Gothic church and the ruins of a fortress.




What to See
The Bayle House
Also known as the ‘porch,’ the Bayle House is all that remains of the arcaded square which once upon a time provided shelter for the shops. Traces of two ogival openings dating from the fourteenth century can be seen on its east façade.
The Market Place
In the heart of the village, the market place used to house a covered market hall which, sadly, no longer exists.




St Jean’s Church
The thirteenth-century fortified church seems out of all proportion to the small village. It is Plantagenet Gothic in style with ribbed vaults and a massive bell tower protecting the north facade. Battlemented parapets, destroyed in the nineteenth century, joined the south and north towers which were used as reserves in case of attack. The church was left in ruins by the Wars of Religion and the process of restoration only undertaken in the nineteenth century.

The Castle
The square, fortified castle was begun in 1316 to protect the village ; only the walls and part of the tower still survive.

La Maison de la Noix (The Walnut House)
A former presbytery, La Maison de la Noix now houses exhibits about the walnut : the various stages of walnut cultivation, the different varieties of walnut, the different uses to which the fruit can be put and examples of walnut wood. La Maison de la Noix is also home to the mairie.
