3.5km walk via country lanes to the village of Dieulivol where there is a cafe bar which serves drinks and light snacks, by special request they can create a BBQ meal for you, they also sell ice cream and local wine.
Fresh bread is available daily from the post office or the cafe bar on Sunday’s by request.

Bordeaux city centre is just 65km to the west and Bergerac is 46km to the east, Saint Emilion 38km north.

An ideal base from which to explore southwest France. Located in the region of Aquitaine on the 3 borders of Gironde / Dordogne / Lot et Garonne and is considered to be one of the most picturesque areas of France.

The region is famous for wine and wonderful gastronomy. Whether you are in St. Emilion, Pomerol, Blaye, The Médoc, Entre Deux Mers, Bourg, Graves, or Sauterne the wines of the region are without doubt some of the very best in the world! There are local producers nearby that offer excellent quality wines at very reasonable prices through to the higher end of the market.

The rolling countryside is a pleasure to explore, with excellent roads winding their way through fields and vineyards. Perfect walking and cycling country!

Monsegur and Duras are ancient Bastide towns set around a market square which are host to weekly markets and also a weekly night market during the peak summer season. There is a good selection of shops, cafés, bars, restaurants and excellent boulangeries in both towns, our favourite being La Choco-Latine in Monsegur who were runners up in the French TV show “La Meilleure Boulangerie de France” in 2019.

We love the volunteer-run Cinema Eden in Monsegur, they show some international films in their original language version (VO) with French subtitles.

The market squares host a variety of festivals and events throughout the year, Monsegur hosts the famous 24 Heures de Swing at the beginning of July.

La Villa Favreau… Que dire! Maison très fonctionnelle et de quoi ravir tous les hôtes! De grandes chambres, de beaux espaces de vie. La cuisine est très bien équipée et ça, c’est le top. Malheureusement, la météo du week-end de la Pentecôte n’était pas avec nous, mais mention spéciale pour le «dortoir» au 1er étage où des parties de jeux de société nous ont bien occupé le temps d’une journée pluvieuse! Nous avons pu profiter du bel extérieur (piscine,barbecue…). Visite du vignoble Faurie à 1km, bel accueil de Titou. Un joli week-end entre amis, venant de La Baule, Nantes, Toulouse et Paris. On reviendra! Merci à Pascal pour l’accueil physique et à Tracy pour les échanges via Airbnb. Nous garderons un beau souvenir de la villa Favreau. En cette période, appelée «covid», la Villa de Dieulivol nous a permis de nous échapper le temps d’un week-end. MERCI. Et, bonne continuation!

Tracy a été très réactive et disponible pour répondre à mes interrogations! Top 🙂

The Villa Favreau … What can I say! Very functional house and something to delight all guests! Large bedrooms, beautiful living spaces. The kitchen is very well equipped and that’s the best. Unfortunately, the weather for the Pentecost weekend was not with us, but special mention for the “dormitory” on the 1st floor where board games kept us busy on a rainy day! We were able to enjoy the beautiful exterior (swimming pool, barbecue …). Visit of the Faurie vineyard at 1km, nice welcome from Titou. A nice weekend with friends, coming from La Baule, Nantes, Toulouse and Paris. We will come back! Thanks to Pascal for the physical welcome and to Tracy for the discussions via Airbnb. We will keep fond memories of Villa Favreau. During this period, called “covid”, the Villa de Dieulivol allowed us to escape for a weekend. THANK YOU. And good continuation!

We enjoyed every moment of our stay at the Villa Favereau. It’s calm, vast (the house and the property), comfortable and very tastefully furniture. The choice of activities both outdoors (pool, table tennis, various games, strolls, sunbathing, bbqing) and indoors (some books and numerous board games) is large. The position in the heart of Marmandais wine country is excellent, and the endless view of vineyards, only interrupted by grazed meadows and picturesque little hilltop towns makes for wonderful sights and strolls. The pool is large and convenient, as are the premises allowing groups to do separate activities while not bouncing into one another. Sadly some glass or fragile items were broken, for which we’ve duly paid after Tracy and Pascal messaged us with the utmost amiability and understanding. We’d love to come again. Thanks and bonne continuation 🙂

Gautier. April 2020

We returned to Favreau after having a lovely birthday celebration there last August. This time with children and again everyone had a wonderful time. David, Tracy, Sarah and Paul were all such help in preparation and with all the various needs of our little humans (4 of them aged from 1 to 5) the place is idyllic and such a lovely place to enjoy a fun and peaceful holiday.
