Vue de Duras
Ranked #3 of 9 Duras B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 10, 2014

We stayed whilst house hunting in the area, we wanted somewhere friendly and relaxing to stay so chose Vue de Duras rather than an hotel, we were not disappointed.

We did a lot of driving so arrived tired and stressed, but that soon faded away, the property has great views, it's spotless and the rooms a well designed, and very comfortable. Fiona and Hugh are great hosts and made sure we were comfortable at all times.

Our only regret is that this was only a two day visit, will try and rectify that next time.

A good choice for touring this area of the Dordogne, along with a side trip to Bordeaux. Our room had a great view with a private balcony. Our breakfast was delicious with fruit salad, yogurt, croissants, assortment of breads and boiled egg. We also enjoyed a delicious dinner which was all homemade. Fiona and Hugh were welcoming and very attentive. It was a relaxing stay.

We stayed at Vue de Duras for a few nights in late September. The place is absolutely stunning!
Hugh and Fiona are so welcoming and can't do enough for you. Pool area is immaculate and the grounds are so well kept. We were lucky enough to stay in the Gite which is so, so nice. A beautiful self contained building that has everything you need.

I can't recommend this place enough. Amazing!

A perfect B&B. The room, with its own private balcony, was comfortable and light, and Hugh and Fiona were the perfect hosts. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see much of the surrounding area in our two days there, as we were both struck with awful food poisoning (nothing to do with the food at Vue de Duras, I hasten to add!) – Hugh and Fiona were very helpful and sympathetic, and exactly what we needed away from home and under the weather. We would definitely stay here again.

Just returned from two weeks in the Vue de Duras Gite. Can honestly say that this is the best property we have visited in France. Hugh and Fiona have created a superb property with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kids have enjoyed the pool whilst we have relaxed on the terrace, soaking up the views over the valley and across to the Duras chateaux. With its proximity to so many beautiful towns it is the perfect location for a relaxing family holiday. So much so that we have already booked for next year!. A little gem in an idyllic location.

We've recently returned from a fantastic stay at the 'Vue de Duras' and enjoyed every minute. We were made to feel extremely welcome by Hugh and Fiona the hosts, who were so helpful with everything, full of good advice and nothing was too much trouble for them. The gite is in a great position, with a handy super market just 10 minutes away. The typically French village of Duras is charming and just a short drive from the gite where you can enjoy the bars and restaurants it has to offer. The gite itself is delightful and decorated with pretty pieces of hand painted furniture and has such a homely feel that you can't help but completely relax! The breakfast was perfectly laid out each morning and we were given a lovely choice of fresh fruit, croissants, breads and cereals and enjoyed these whilst sat on the terrace overlooking the pool...perfect start to the day. We defiantly recommend the Vue de Duras and will most certainly be returning. Thank you Hugh & Fiona for such a lovely holiday with memories we will keep forever.
