Le Grand Maine is situated just 1 km from the village which has a bakery and there are excellent restaurants close by. Villeneuve-de-Duras is in the Lot et Garonne, a few miles to the south of The Dordogne and close to the Gironde Department, making it an excellent base for exploring this beautiful area. The region has literally thousands of chateaux to view and is dotted with lovely medieval villages and bastide towns with superb gastronomic markets most days. The region is most famous for its Prunes, Foie gras and of course, wine. With the growing regions of Bergerac, Bordeaux, St Emillion, Monbazilliac, Pomeral and Cote de Duras, you will never go thirsty with lots of opportunity for tasting and buying. The closest vineyard is 100yards away ‘Domaine de Grand Mayne’ so you need not ...Le Grand Maine is situated just 1 km from the village which has a bakery and there are excellent restaurants close by.

About the neighborhood
The local town is the Chateau town of Duras which is excellent for general shopping. There are also restaurants, supermarket, bars, banks, bakers, butchers and petrol stations. in both Ste Foy la Grande, Bergerac and Marmande. There are numerous markets at all the local towns at various times through out the week, so you will never go hungry!
Getting around
If your stopping for a week or more we suggest rent a car at the airport, Taxis are available if you arrive on foot etc, the local roads are very quiet even in high season, biking is very recommended as there is so much to see.
