This historic house, whose 800-year-old bastion forms part of the ancient fortifications of Chateau Duras,  is now a luxurious country retreat, welcoming families and groups of up to twelve for as little as £41 per person per night.

L’Orangerie boasts six spacious ensuite bedrooms, each with south-facing views of the Dropt valley; two superbly-equipped kitchens; a choice of indoor and outdoor dining, and ample private parking.

On one side of the house you can enjoy a refreshing swim in our 11 x 6m heated pool (essential for the region’s hot, dry summers), and on the other an unrivalled view of the ancient chateau.

A five-minute walk to the village of Duras presents a fine choice of restaurants, bars and bakers — and of course a historic market. Further afield, the Lot-et-Garonne and Aquitaine regions offer spectacular landscape, dozens of historic villages and, naturally, a wealth of fine food and wines.

Book L’Orangerie for your private stay or special celebration, and check out our September/October 2022 retreats, which include two Bordeaux Food and Wine retreats with our local expert Nicolle Croft partnering with celebrity chefs Alan Coxon and Dan Lee, and our Yoga and Floral retreat in partnership with London’s Borrowed Light Florists and Kala Retreats.
