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.
