LE CABRI HOLIDAY VILLAGE
About the home
In stunning countryside, surrounded by working vineyards, we are an English owned and run small holiday complex set in 14 acres, on the border of the Dordogne and the Lot-et-Garonne, between the two rivers of the same name. Although we are set in a very rural and peaceful area, we are only a 10 minute walk from the village of Duras, with its good selection of shops, restaurants, bars and the famous fortified chateau standing guard at the head of the village square.
Our log cabin is ideal for families and can sleep up to 6; with a double and a twin bedroom. Externally, the accommodation benefits from being set in mature, private gardens, whilst internally each has a living area / diner, a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom.
The site has a communal swimming pool, a fishing pond and other leisure facilities (boules, play park, table tennis etc). In addition there is a very high quality restaurant on site with a large shaded terrace with stunning views.

The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Lot et Garonne region
"Lot-et-Garonne - a blessed little corner of South-West France made up of gently rolling hills, fields of corn and sunflowers, winding roads empty of cars and pretty little towns and villages, where people always have time to talk to you. It's like an unspoilt Tuscany or Provence, and I'd better shut up now or I'll be responsible for spoiling it!" Sam Taylor, The Observer Newspaper.
An inexhaustive review of Lot-et-Garonne's attractions include Agen's Museum, Henry IV's castle, the Lot and Garonne rivers, vineyards to visit, Bergerac, Bordeaux, theme parks and slightly further afield the space centre at Toulouse, Carcassone, the world famous prehistoric caves of Lascaux and the beach and dunes at Arcachon.
The Duras area
Duras and the immediate local area offers the visitor a plentiful supply of things to see and do: daily markets and evening markets (in July and August) are charming, social events that offer the opportunity to visit the surrounding villages.
The 12th century Chateau at Duras is a must see, as are some of the pretty medieval bastide villages. A natural playground, the surrounding countryside offers unlimited scope for walking or cycling (bike hire available) and visitors here are well placed for boating on either the Lot or Garonne.
Details of horse-riding and other seasonal activities can be found at our reception or at the local tourist office. From riverside fishing to overhead hand-gliding the region abounds with opportunities for all tastes and ages.

We booked quite last minute to visit Le Cabri and were offered the choice of a wooden cabin or mobile home. We went for the mobile as it was for the duration we wanted. The price was so reasonable we did wonder whether it would be as nice as the photos. It was. It was lovely.
The site itself is very well kept with a number of facilities for children to enjoy (playground, play equipment, pool, table tennis, etc.) and as it is not big, felt safe enough to give the children freedom to play without being supervised (well from a distance anyway!). The pool was good: always clean and a nice temperature plus a few loungers. One of the things we liked about the site is that it is varied - there are wooden cabins, mobiles, caravans and tents - all with lots of space and plants around so you don't feel penned in.
The restaurant is very good - the food was excellent, as was the service, and the prices were reasonable. We ate there three nights and each time was fantastic.
The people were also great - Peter and Eileen made you feel very welcome both on the site and in the restaurant, as did the campsite assistants Sean and Dawn. Chatting to Sean as he passed our mobile most days was always something to look forward to - he has so many stories to tell! He was really friendly and quick to help sort any problems (we only had one: the pilot light went out on the boiler).
The location of the site is fantastic, just outside Duras. It is walkable (even with two small children) but part of it is on the road without a path. The village has lots of amenities (bars, supermarket, shop selling toys etc.) and of course the chateau. Close by are many lovely towns, attractions and, of course, vineyards.
All in all, this is a lovely destination for a family holiday and I thoroughly recommend it.
