5/5 Excellent

Quiet and relaxing
This property is just the place you need if you want quiet and relaxation . It is adequately furnished , for all your culinary needs . The only thing it is missing is a place near by to get your fresh bread from , but we stocked up every time we went to the local mini supermarket about a 10 minute drive away in Duras . The outside furniture could do with a bit of a refurb , but on the whole it was very pleasant to sit outside at night and listen to all the different birds and the church bells and eat the grapes off the vine on your patio . Don't forget your mosquito repellent! They were certainly active whilst we were there the last 2 weeks of September, also it was harvest time as well , so lots of flies etc . We would like to thank Julie and Chris for helping us out at the end of the holiday as well , super , kind people .

5/5 Excellent

Perfect getaway in very relaxing and peaceful village with beautiful pool and views
Beautiful old and authentic house with beautiful swimming pool and great games room. We spent a week at Sainte-Colombe-de-Duras, two families (4 adults and 4 children). Fantastic accommodating hosts and lovely place to base yourself to explore the local area. All of us loved the swimming pool and games room. Enjoyed having barbeque at the front terrace, kids loved running around as there was plenty of room to play. Kitchen has everything you need. It was useful to have washing machine as we came with kids. If you are looking for calm, peacefull and relaxing holiday, it's the perfect place to be :) Thanks to Julie and Chris.

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay
The photos do not do this place justice! It is extremely spacious, clean and overall a great place for a holiday with family and/or friends. Lots of space for everyone to enjoy. The owners are friendly and very helpful without being invasive. The pool is huge, with lots of inflatables available, and in the sun all day long. It is ideal for day time lounging. The covered barn area includes a pool table, table tennis table and air hockey table. It also has a bar area with bar chairs, so it's a good place to cool down when the sunshine gets too hot. In the evening the front porch with built in barbecue is the perfect spot for long dinners, as it gets the last of the evening sun and is nicely located next to the kitchen; we used it every night. As the property is in a very quiet location, a car really is mandatory. Shops are to be found without 10 mins or so. We stayed there as a group of six friends and had a lovely time. Would definitely recommend!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely location with stunning views

4/5 Good
