Duras, Lot-et-Garonne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Inspected and accredited by 'Association Tourisme & Handicaps' for wheelchair accessibility. Inspected by Clévacances and awarded 3 keys (the equivalent of 3 stars).

Near the historic market town of Duras, Colombine is a suitable centre for visits to the Dordogne valley with its world famous prehistoric cave paintings, cliff dwellings, and romantic mediaeval chateaux, as well as the wine chateaux of St. Emilion/Bordeaux and Entre Deux Mers. There are vineyards and orchards in abundance, the latter often devoted to producing the famous pruneaux d’Agen while everywhere you are reminded of the historical importance of a region that provided the backcloth to much of the 100 Years War which left as its legacy many fine mediaeval chateaux and the ‘bastides’ or fortified market towns several of which, for example, Eymet and Monpaz...

We stayed at Colombine for the month of April 2016. Our first impression of the Gite on arrival was of a very well cared for house. The attention to detail was very impressive and the quality of furnishings of a high standard indeed. Our stay was very peaceful, with great views over the garden and the valley below. The main...

Additional amenities & feature info
We have renovated our old prune oven barn (we're not sure exactly how old it is, but it features on the Plan Napoleon which makes it at least 160 years old) into a cottage. The cottage is well equipped and furnished and sleeps 6 in three bedrooms – one double (160x200) and two twin (2 beds 90x200), although please note that one of the twin rooms can also be converted to make a king. It is baby and toddler friendly with a cot or bed rails available; and a highchair. There is a bathroom with bath, open shower, washbasin and WC; a separate WC with hand washbasin; and a shower room with washbasin and shower. The cottage is all on one level, so no stairs to negotiate, and is wheelchair accessible.

For those seeking winter accommodation or a long let, the cottage is double glazed and w...

About the neighborhood
COLOMBINE is situated near the village of Pardaillan (the childhood home of author Marguerite Duras) in the heart of the Guyenne, the ancient name for a region which now comprises parts of the departments of Gironde, Dordogne and Lot et Garonne. We are also in the Cotes de Duras AOC wine producing area and near the historic market town of Duras with its imposing mediaeval chateau.

THE COTES DE DURAS was one of the first wine producing areas of France to be awarded AOC status and you can sample the light but fruity reds and crisp dry whites by visiting some of the 50 or so growers. We are also close to the Cotes de Bergerac, Entre Deux Mers and Cotes de Marmandais as well as being within easy reach of St. Emilion and the other Bordeaux regions.

Within about 20 – 40 minutes drive there are...
