About Hiram E Warren
We are an American/British couple who live in Oxford city centre, but love France and the French way of life. We spend as much time at our home in France as we can; however I am still working for the NHS and can't get away as much as I would like. My CP, Stephen, is a retired NHS property consultant/surveyor. Our dream is to be able to afford to retire to France (both of us) someday. Stephen can be in France much more often than I can, so he will be the on-site manager when we have guests. We love our little bit of ''heaven on Earth'' and hope that our guests will also.
Hiram E Warren purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Hiram E Warren chose Duras
We searched most of Western France for nearly 10 years before settling on the Lot-et-Garonne department. We like the mild(ish) winters and the long, hot summers of the area. Our house is rural,but not isolated. We are only 2 km from Duras, on the D668 which is a well-traveled link road from Duras to Miramont de Guyenne. Bergerac airport is approximately 45 minutes away and Bordeaux is just over an hour away by car. The area has many vineyards and fruit orchards.

Duras, par excellence
The hosts were as congenial as ever. We have stayed here before and will do so again. The gite is well-appinted, in lovely grounds. Great base for visiting the Dordogne......Duras is a lovely bastide town. Difficult to do anything but praise glowingly.
It is a lovely place, with a wonderful host. Very relaxing and charming.
We will definitely come again.thank you
Relaxing stay....enjoyable....great surroundings....congenial hosts.....thanks to Steven, Hiram & Ian. This property is well equipped, comfortable with delightful aspects....well worth a stay.....
Very pleasant stay in an old French house.
Comfortable bed and nice towels. The accomodation is the old barn attached to the house and has high ceilings and large rooms. Lovely garden and outside space in which to relax.
Ideal for exploring the region
This was so much better than the photos suggest. The host is very friendly and helpful and the gite is set in a large garden with sunny patio surrounded by flowers. Inside the rooms are spacious with antique furniture giving it very much a french gite feel.
It is walking distance of Duras which is a pretty town with a market on a Monday and places to eat and drink. We also visited the chocolate factory a short drive away. There are also plenty of vineyards to visit.
This is a ideal place to stay if you want to explore the region.
Thanks Anne. As you know we are condstantly improving the property to make it more appealing to our guests. We plan to take many more pictures and select those which show the property to it's fullest advantage. We hope to see you again next year and please tell all of your friends and family how much you enjoyed your stay.
