You can easily fill your days exploring, sightseeing, wine tasting or merely relaxing in the extensive well stocked gardens or on the sunny terrace of the 12m x 6m pool.
Ideal for a country rural retreat or for the many sight seeing trips or activities, including cycling, canoeing, walking, fishing, golfing, boules, even hot air ballooning, outside living the French way.
During the summer months most villages have day and/or night markets, selling local produce, which this region of gastronomy and wine is renowned for,( local regional delicacies include duck confit, foie gras, magret, cepes, walnut and prune dishes) Here you can eat, drink and enjoy musical entertainment throughout the evening.

Canoeing on the Dordogne provides a slow and leisurely way of sightseeing as you pass picturesque villages, chateaux and points of interest. Canoe hire is also available on the local river Dropt
During August the Duras fete du vin in the spectacular chateau is a must, 5€ entry and all day local wine tasting.
Casteljaloux is a spa town with baths and saunas and offer massage facilities, and is about 40 mins away.
Marmande hosts many events throughout the summer, markets, fetes, the annual music festival held in the streets and squares is well worth a visit.
Most villages have weekly markets, and annual fetes. The nearest, Levignac night market being our favourite.
There are tourist information offices in most towns, locally Duras, Miramont and Marmande.
The local village of Levignac also has a small supermarket, cafe bar, butcher, chemist and doctor and is 5 mins away by car.
Le Vieux Porche Restaurant in Seyches is excellent value for money, and only 10 mins away.
Within easy reach of the gite are the 12th -14th century Bastide towns of Duras with vineyards and chateau, Eymet, Miramont de Guyenne and slightly further afield the acknowledged Monpazier.
If history is your thing then this area is rich in human history from Cro-Magnon man in the Dordogne Valley to huge castles used during the hundred years war. Lascaux 2 offers a chance to see some of the best early cave paintings whilst Beynac et Cazenac, Sarlat, Domme and Castelnaud have huge medieval connections and are very picturesque.
The Lot et Garonne, Dordogne and Gironde are famous for their gastronomy and local dishes include oysters, duck, foie gras and the infamous truffle. Local wines are well renowned from summery rosés to thick, fruity reds and the unusual sweet Monbazillac – a good Sauterne rival.
The first castle dates from the twelfth century Duras, built on a rocky outcrop overlooking the valley Dropt, it took the form of an impregnable fortress when it was acquired by Gaillard Goth, brother of Bertrand de Goth, Pope Clement V.
He provoked a lot of desire of the English and French during the Hundred Years War and during the wars of religion, because it was a bastion of Jeanne d’Albret, who even made his headquarters for some time.
In the seventeenth century, the residence of Durfort, Dukes of Duras. It was then that the castle of Duras is transformed into residence of pleasure and are augmented by French gardens.
In 1969 he was bought by the town of Duras. It was first registered historic July 7, 1948. It was listed in part 6 November 1970 and February 14, 1989 regarding the castle, the castle and the small courtyard. The decree of May 3, 2002 Castle Class “with all the buildings that compose it, and its progress, and warren terraces and retaining walls.”
In 2002 the castle was classified major site of Aquitaine.
Eymet, Bastide was founded in 1270 by Allophone de Poitiers, brother of St. Louis, on a site that has been inhabited since prehistoric times; jewels and domestic objects found on the site of Eymet date back to the Bronze-age. Other evidence such as bridges and roads point to Roman occupation.
The Bastide, newtowns of the middle ages were created during the 13th century by the lords and royalty, who offered political, social and economic guarantees to attract people into the town.
All Bastides have a familiar air, roads are cut at right angles, identical houses, ramparts ( high walls to protect the town against enemies) in the middle the central place with its boutiques and diverse commerce.
Eymet was constructed on a general plan like many of ‘the bastides’ with its high encircling walls (ramparts) and towers isolated by a moat which was fed by the river ‘Tibre’, with the central place and covered arcades, the church which often played a defensive role, and octagonal roads. Eymet possessed a fortified castle (of which remnants can be seen today) with its square donjon and defensive walls. The round tower permitted communication with the donjon. The central place was accessible by 3 gates of which 2 were mounted by towers. The villagers were offered 200msq per family for the construction of a house within a 2 year period otherwise they would have to pay a fine, they also had a plot of land for vegetables etc.. outside the encircling walls.
All the gates have disappeared except the gates of the castle which was damaged during the revolution. A charter was laid down and Thursday was fixed as market-day.
