Things to do in Duras, France

Wine is a huge part of life in Duras, and it shall certainly form a large part of your Duras holiday. The large French vineyards of Lot-et-Garonne often offer vineyard tours and wine tasting sessions, which are great fun for both wine connoisseurs and interested wine drinkers alike.

The area surrounding Duras is stepped in history, from the charming medieval Bastide villages to the imposing fortified chateaux, Duras is a fantastic spot to explore the history of France and the historical contests between England and France that occurred in the region. There are so many historic sites of interest, including the world famous pre-historic caves scattered through the area, that you could spend your entire Duras holiday sightseeing. One of the best ways to explore however is on foot, by bicycle or on horse back. The Duras Tourist Information centre has detailed routes you can follow, taking advantage of local knowledge and the magnificent walking and riding paths that adorn the countryside.

The rivers of the Dordogne and Vezere are fantastic places for sport and relaxation too. Both rivers offer exceptional fishing, (permits for which are available from any local tabac), and are clean and clear enough to allow refreshing dips during the summer months, which are especially appreciated on walking holidays during the hot summer months. Canoeing trips along the river also provide some of the best, and least seen, views of the Duras chateaux, caves and castles too.

Golfers are also very well catered for. The exceptional Chateau de Vigiers golf course offers a fantastic 18 hole round in glorious Lot-et-Garonne landscapes, as well as all the rental and practice facilities you might need to blow away the cobwebs after your journey. The club house is also home to gyms, restaurants and spa facilities for those requiring a little pampering after their attempts to conquer the course! All you need to book a round here is your handicap certificate.

The location of the house is perfect, beautiful and very peaceful about 15 - 20 min walk from Monbazillac. The gite is well equipped with everything you need and a very comfy bed. The weather was great so we made full use of the swimming pool which is well maintained with plenty of furniture. Martin was very helpful and the gave us lots of information and recommendations on local bars and restaurants. Would definitely stay again, thoroughly recommended.
