Our tips on what to do in Monsegur, Duras, Bordeaux, Bergerac and the Dordogne region.

Gite Lavande is situated 3km from the small historic town of Allemans-du-Dropt. A short drive from the historic towns of Eymet 10km, Duras 14km (Lot et Garonne), Monsegur 22km (Gironde), Sainte-Foy-La-Grande 30km and Saint Émilion 56km. Most historic towns have weekly markets as well as a selection of restaurants, and shops and in the peak summer months, there are night markets.
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.

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.

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.

Wine and Gastronomy

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.

Not to be missed is the world-famous Saint Emilion. A designated world heritage site and is truly stunning. Explore characteristic narrow lanes lined with wine merchants, cafes, restaurants and interesting independent shops. A guided tour of the monolithic church is highly recommended.

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

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.
