In the heart of the small town of Duras (47 Lot-et-Garonne, Nouvelle Aquitaine) you will find this comfortable and welcoming Logis de France hotel: Hostellerie des Ducs.
The Logis de France hotels always assure you of good standards, and at this hotel there is an excellent restaurant and an open air swimming pool. Rooms include singles, doubles and family rooms many en-suite.
Just a walk away is the 12th Century Chateau de Duras which enjoys great views over the surrounding countryside and is well worth a visit,
Even closer is the Maison des Vins de Duras, where you can taste and learn about the Côtes de Duras Wines. These are wines made from Bordeaux style grapes to produce very decent reds, whites and rosés – the éBlanc is particularly successful. There is a good co-operative cellar Berticot just up the road towards Sainte-Foy-la-Grande – and numerous individual domaines in the area.
Duras is also well-situated for exploring the wines of the SouthWest – Bergerac (about 40 km/25 miles), Côtes du Marmandais (about 25 km /16 miles) , Buzet (about 60 km/38 miles) – and even Saint Emilion is only about 45 km/28 miles away.
