“We loved this house, it is so beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The beds were super comfy. We loved all the shady areas in the gardens and the pool was perfect for cooling down after sunbathing in the hot French sunshine! Duras is a lovely, traditional town and the local markets are well worth a visit. In short, we can well recommend this property for a lovely relaxing holiday!
