Why this location? Le Roc is a pretty barn conversion positioned on a quiet lane, set amongst fields and woodland. It's just 1km from the village of Villeneuve de Duras and walking distance to the local boulangerie, restaurant/bar and Post Office. Duras, an ancient hillside market town 5 minutes drive away, thrives all year round and particularly comes to life in the summer months with its colourful Monday market and frequent festivals and fetes. The main attraction here is its imposing Château which is well worth a look around during your stay in this area.

The Owner Recommends

Local markets

The local markets are always worth a visit. The market at Sainte-Foy-la-Grande is one of the largest in the area and is on a Saturday. A little bit further afield Eymet's market is not to be missed and is on a Thursday, Duras and Miramont's markets are on a Monday and the market at Issigeac on a Sunday is always very busy so try to get there early. Evening markets in the summer months are great to visit.

Chateau visits

The local chateau at Duras is well worth a visit with fantastic views from the top of the tower. Head east of the property along the Dordogne valley and visit the impressive chateaux of Biron, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle.

Beautiful villages

East of the area is home to some of the most beautiful villages in France. Named as some of 'Les plus beaux villages de France', Belves, Beynac-et-Cazenac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, Domme, La Roque-Gageac, Monflanquin and Monpazier are all worth a visit.

Beautiful gardens

The Jardins de Marqueyssac are beautiful, and the view from the viewing platform across the Dordogne valley towards La Roque-Gageac is spectacular.
