Bordeaux city centre is 110km and Bergerac is 34km. In the region of Aquitaine within the Bordeaux wine region and on the borders of the Dordogne, Gironde and Lot et Garonne, 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.

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

Eymet, Monsegur and Duras are historic towns set around market squares 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 boulangeries, 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 often show international films in their original language version (VO) with French subtitles.

Vineyards are abundant in the area.
The Bordeaux wine region has 21 appellations. Visit some of the many local Chateau that offers free tastings and tours while you choose a bottle or two.

This designated world heritage site is a must for all visitors. This cosmopolitan city offers a diverse range of attractions. The golden triangle has a fabulous range of shops for those shopaholics.

Lovely gite.

We had a great week at Gite Lavande. The house is very comfortable and well equipped, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the fantastic pool. Located within reach of lovely bastide towns and we enjoyed getting fresh croissants from the local boulangerie (5 mins drive) in the mornings. The owners live on-site and were extremely welcoming and helpful. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful home away from home.

Visited this beautiful property early June. All furnishings of a high standard and very clean. Jules maintained the pool every day. The gardens are stunning and its on a nice quiet road if you want to get away from a busy town. Lots to do in the area, most within a 15 minute drive. Kim gave us some of her delicious homemade jam to add to a welcome basket of croissants and wine. We are hoping to get back and stay again. Recommend restaurants in Eymet, the Chateau at Duras, with coffee shops and bars in the centre. Marmande is lovely too and we would recommend La Creperie to eat. The churches are beautiful and gave a nice reprieve from the heat. You must go and see the chuch in Allemans Du Dropt. It is stunning. Nice bakery and grocery shop too. The cafe only sells drinks but let us bring goods from the bakery to enjoy with our coffee. Thanks to Jules and Kim for letting us stay in your beautiful rental. Regards Marie, Kevin & family.

Marie S. June 2023

What a wonderful gite you have worked so hard to create!
We have loved being here to relax on our final holiday/ babymoon.
Thank you very much for your hospitality. The area is stunning, quiet and the local market was just perfect.
We are honoured to be the last guests of your first season and hope that you’ll fondly remember the parking incident.

We didn’t venture far, we came for a total chillout holiday. We will come back another year and explore a little. We loved the local town Miramont de Guyenne it is very charming. The market was full of lovely goodies which we enjoyed and the bakery was absolute perfection.

Annika and Dan. September 2022.

We’ve had a wonderful 6 days in the gite. The weather has been fabulous. Both my daughters were in need of a restful holiday so we haven’t done much but enjoy the pool and local countryside. Kim and Jules went out of their way to welcome us on our late arrival after a delayed flight.
They have been so kind to Arya (our 18 month old) buying a slide for her to enjoy the pool and even lending her their granddaughter’s wendy house – both great hits. If we’d been able to spend more time here we would have loved to do some pottery throwing with them.

Jules recommended ‘La Camelia’ near Allemans du Dropt for genuine French cuisine with no frills at a great price. We had lunch there it was thoroughly enjoyable! and cheap.

Wish we could have stayed longer. Can’t thank you enough Kim and Jules! Fab hosts!!

Jenny, Laura, baby Arya, Alice. August 2022.

Kim and Jules are excellent hosts, very friendly and made us very comfortable.

The gite is well kept and is a great base for everyone wishing to explore the Dordogne region. We would recommend this gite to anyone as this gite has everything and is only made better by the local markets. We thoroughly enjoyed our time staying and couldn’t ask for better hosts.

Recommendations: Eymet, canoeing down the Dordogne, Visited Cap Ferret, Bordeaux, Duras markets, Agen, Monteton night markets, Casteljeloux aqua park and freshwater lake.
All well worth a visit!!
Thank you for having us.

Kristie and Lee. August 2022

A fantastic location, made very welcome by Jules and Kim – great hosts. We enjoyed our time very much and thoroughly recommend the gite to anyone wishing to use it as a base to explore the Lot-et-Garonne and further afield into the Dordogne. Lots to see and do – all within an hour to an hour and a half drive.
Accommodation is of a very high standard, set in excellent gardens with a fantastic pool.

Highlights from our stay: Eymet, Issegeac, Beaumont en Perrigord, Duras, Cadouin and Chateau Beron, Aubeterre sur Dronne. All well worth a visit, great places to eat out + pretty locations.
Thank you for a lovely stay.

Hill and Iggulder. July 2022

Kim and Jules are great hosts, very friendly and helpful. Lovely comfortable gite and a fantastic pool to cool off in 40 degrees of heatwave!

Visited Chateuau Duras, had a splash in the Dropt with paddle boards and visited chateaux Molliere (family run vineyard). Also enjoyed Eymet market and a day trip to Bergerac.
Great restaurants, enjoyed l’Hosterie des Ducs (Duras), La Cour d’ Eymet and Walnut in Eymet.
Lots to see in the area, a week is only just enough time to pack it all in!
Thank you.

Trender and Hurley. July 2022

Kim and Jules are fab hosts, couldn’t have been more welcoming, wine and bread were lovely arrival gifts.
We found the gite to have everything we needed, the pool was a great hit for us and the children at all times of the day.

Local markets are well worth going to for local produce, Duras personally is the better one plus the bonus of the chateau. Eyemt is a lovely spot for an evening meal 7pm onwards.
BBQ is great, shop at Intermarche as it has the best range of everything. Nite closes at 7.30pm.
Aqua park and freshwater lake with sandy beach at Lac de Clarens at Casteljeloux a great day out, take a parasol.
Thank you for having us.

Corfield and Linfield family. July 2022

Our stay at Gite Lavande at Romagne was everything you could want. A well equipped Gite and wonderful swimming pool. The garden is very pretty and a lovely area. The couple who own the gite are very welcoming and charming and are willing to help with anything you need.
Can’t wait to go back.
