Location

Duras


The property is located in open countryside 3 km from the lovely village of Duras.

Duras is situated between Bergerac (40 minutes) and Marmande (the A62 motorway 20 minutes) and 70 minutes from Bordeaux.

All amenities in Duras. Further shops, restaurants, café bars, supermarkets in Marmande.

Duras itself is a charming medieval town with an impressive château perched high on the edge of the town from where there are magnificent views across the valleys. There is a good selection of restaurants, bars, cafés and shops in the town including a chemist, several boulangeries, a butchers and a newsagents. Every Monday morning there is an excellent market full of local produce plus an amazing night market once a week during the summer months. There is also a Carrefour supermarket on the outskirts of Duras with a great selection of fresh food and wine and just about anything else you could possibly need.

Only 35 minutes to the famous wine-producing (and stunningly beautiful) village of Saint-Émilion.
Also, 10 minutes to the wine regions of Entre Deux Mers and Bergerac.

Ideal base for visits to the Dordogne valley with its world famous pre-historic cave paintings, caverns and pre-historic cliff dwellings as well as the romantic medieval châteaux of the Dordogne and the 'Bastide' towns (fortified market towns) which remain largely as they were 600 years ago.

The area surrounding Duras has almost 200 small, independent or cooperative vineyards (72 independent vignerons et 118 cooperated vineyards) over 1800 hectares of vines which welcome visitors most days for wine tasting and purchases. These wines form the appellation 'Côtes de Duras'. Red wines form 65% of the locally produced wines, they are made with le Merlot, le Cabernet Sauvignon, le Cabernet Franc et le Malbec grapes. The white wines are grapes; le Sauvignon, le Sémillon, le Muscadelle, l'Odenc, le Chenin, le Mauzac and l'Ugni Blanc. The area is particularly renowned for its organic wine which constitutes over 20% of the total production.

The river Dordogne is 20 minutes to the North where it is possible to hire canoes and kayaks to explore the river by the hour or for the day. The smaller river Dropt is just a few kilometres to the South of Duras where it is also possible to hire canoes and kayaks.

Along the Dropt you can enjoy visits to the medieval bastide towns of Monségur, Eymet, Villereal, Castillonnes, Monpazier, Sauveterre and Miramont.

The Historic towns of Bergerac, Saint-Émilion and Bordeaux, are all less than an hour away and the Atlantic coast with Arcachon and Cap Ferret just an hour and a half.

Endless local activities / events during the summer.

Night markets from July to end of August;
The night markets are becoming more and more popular. You can always buy food but but it's a more nice opportunity to meet people and eat on huge common table.

Had the most relaxing week just wished we’d booked 2 weeks instead of 1 !!!
The villa is so peaceful and tranquil and somehow the walls resonate with the music within.
Perfect, Thank you Frédéric
