Villa overview

Restored to a beautiful standard, this listed ancient monument has a stylish and charming feel that respects its historic past.
Downstairs, the open plan living and dining space with a high end kitchen make for a great socialising area, or is perfect for a cosy evening with a great film.
Upstairs, a second living-dining room and kitchen allows extra space for larger groups.
Ideal for groups with multiple families, the double bedroom in the tower offers privacy, whilst the adjoining twin and double rooms are great for a family.
The south facing garden can be accessed through the lower living space, where you can gaze over the trees of the Dropt valley, admiring this stunning view.
Kids will love the swimming pool, whilst you lounge in the shady gazebo, and get ready for an evening barbecue.
The village of Duras can be directly accessed through a path from the upper garden.
Here you can wander the charming lanes as you explore the market and boulangeries, or even take a trip to one of the restaurants.

Le Jardin Du Château is in the charming and historic village of Duras in the Lot-et-Garonne department, close to the Dordogne and Gironde border. The house enjoys wonderful views of the Dropt valley from the lower garden, swimming pool and some of the bedrooms as well as Château de Duras from the upper garden.
There’s a little path that leads from the upper garden which takes you straight into the village in a few minutes. Here you will find some lovely cafes, four restaurants and a couple of bars as well as useful shops such as a bakery, butchers, and grocery store and an atmospheric Farmers market on a Monday and Wednesday morning. Look out for the guy who sells oysters from Arcachon on a Sunday morning!
There are events taking place throughout the year and from July to early September the village also hosts delightful weekly night markets where you can enjoy great local food and wine with live music. Wine-connoisseurs will also appreciate the impressive Maison des Vins just to the south of the village whilst history lovers can visit the Château de Duras with its fascinating history dating back to the 12th century.
This region is filled with undulating countryside with rolling hills, vineyards, summer sunflowers and fruit trees as well as historic châteaux and idyllic bastide villages, many with their own weekly markets. Highlights nearby include pretty Monségur (9km), 13th century Eymet (20km) with its beautiful main square, Sainte-Foy-la-Grande (22km) on the banks of the Dordogne with its river beach and Montcaret (26km) with its excavations of a Roman villa. A little further afield, Issigeac (43km) has a delightful Sunday morning market and both Monflanquin (57km) and Monpazier (66km) have been classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.
You are also within easy reach of beautiful Bergerac (40km) with its medieval architecture, narrow streets of boutiques, great restaurants and Maison des Vins. In the surrounding region there are also many wine châteaux and vineyards where you can sample the local wines of Duras (Côtes de Duras) and Bergerac as well as the sweet wine of nearby Château de Monbazillac (35km).
Wine-lovers should also head to the idyllic wine town of Saint-Émilion (44km) as well as the vineyards around Bordeaux (98km) including the impressive La Cité du Vin in the city centre.
For those seeking sporty activities, there is canoeing in the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, golf courses across the region as well as many beautiful hiking and cycling trails and horse-riding. Head to nearby Sainte-Colombe-de-Duras, only ten minutes away, for a tree-top activity centre or towards Bergerac for a waterpark, miniature boat rides and go-karting.
