Nestling in the rural landscape of the Pays-de-Duras, only 1 mile from the local village and its small selection of shops, this characterful restored farmhouse with pool and summer kitchen sits comfortably in its substantial grounds, offering the perfect family holiday accommodation in South West France.
Light and airy, one of the original barns of this former farmhouse is now the main living area and is simply stunning, with double-height beamed ceilings, large stone fireplaces, underfloor heating and a cosy family room on the mezzanine floor. Imposing glass doors open onto the garden terrace, where you can enjoy your lazy morning breakfasts in the total privacy of this rural setting. A few steps away is a charming outdoor barn, now turned into a covered terrace, complete with all you need for your summer BBQs and dinners al fresco; this is a fantastic spot for all family to enjoy right next to the pool and the sunbathing area.
The Pays-de-Duras is an enchanting area within the Lot-et-Garonne region of Aquitaine. Land of waters, it offers opportunities for fishing, canoeing and kayaking, as well as horse riding, hot air ballooning, golf and tennis all within a radius of 15 miles of your villa. Vineyards and wineries abound so you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to wine tasting. If you are passionate about history and art, why not follow the Route des Chateaux et des Cites in pursuit of some of the best preserved castles and churches in South West France. The picturesque village of Duras is only four miles away and well worth visiting for its beautiful hilltop chateau affording some striking views across the valley, its medieval clock tower, shops and restaurants – also, the local tourist information office is here to help you make the most of your holiday in South West France.
A phenomenal region with so much or so little to do depending on the holiday of your choice. From personalised wine tasting tours to just lying by the pool, this villa can offer you everything you need to relax and enjoy South West France. This area of the Lot-et-Garonne region boasts an incredible charm. Here you will find many quaint villages such as Duras, Monteton, Sauvetat-du-Dropt, featuring Romanesque churches, markets, half-timbered houses, pretty cafes and spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. If you like beautiful gardens I would recommend a visit to the Jardin de Boissonna and its lovely tea room in Baleyssagues. Vineyards and wineries are everywhere - with St Emilion within just 45 minutes' drive - and make sure you don't leave this region without sampling its delicious canard based dishes and juicy prunes.
