Lovely gite
We enjoyed a great week in this gite, a lovingly restored building which is now very well equipped and comfortable. Hiram and Stephen were genial hosts. Hope to go back some day.

5/5 Excellent

A property oozing with character and charm .
Wonderful hosts. Property only 2km from the centre-ville of Duras with proximity to many historical villages, bastides and castles of this beautiful region of France. Very spacious with tasteful furniture and excellently appointed. Charming patio in a large private garden.

5/5 Excellent

Duras, par excellence
The hosts were as congenial as ever. We have stayed here before and will do so again. The gite is well-appinted, in lovely grounds. Great base for visiting the Dordogne......Duras is a lovely bastide town. Difficult to do anything but praise glowingly.
