Bordeaux city centre is a 96km drive to the west. Bergerac is 45km to the east. Sainte-Foy-La-Grande is 30km north and Saint Émilion is 50km northwest.

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.

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

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.

Vineyard tours, picnics in a vineyard, and cheese and wine pairing evenings are available with a local couple, Sylvie and Pascal. Loving Aquitaine.
