Location description from owner

The Aquitaine region

The house is situated in a small hamlet surrounded by vines , plum orchards ,cereals , grazing for dairy cattle and woodland where you can often find cep mushrooms. A network of chemin rurals (footpaths) threads through the country side..The region is famous for its pretty medieval fortified towns (bastides), castles and fortified manors and chateaux. Its temperate climate which together with its soil have favoured the production of its famous wines, is also wonderful for enjoying country activities like walking, swimming and eating outside. Close by there are the bastide towns of Eymet ,Duras and Ste Foy la Grande with their weekly markets.

Duras

Both the towns of Duras and Ste Foy la Grande have lively weekly markets and through out the year there are brocante (antique) fairs in the surrounding towns where you can find treasures from armoires to old tools and toys and 78 records and textiles. A visit to the little church of Monbos with its unusual 11C capitals, the Tour de Montaigne (Montainge (1560s) was a leading light of he french renaissance and through his essays influenced people like Shakespeare and Rouseau) the frescoes of the dammed at the 12C church in Allemans and the chateaux of Duras and la Brede are just a few of the places you might visit. Many more could be suggested.
