The Orangerie at Duras is in an unparalleled spot as part of the Chateau in the village, yet is totally private. The amenities go beyond the norm, there are two fully functional. expansive kitchens, two outside areas, two barbecues, great pool...everything on the list is A grad, stylish and designer....More than anything, we had fun...and relaxed...literally everything is there!

I had the most wonderful holiday at L’Orangerie. The location was perfect with views southwards over an undulating landscape covered with grapevines and, to the rear, a Chateau which rises dramatically above the garden so that one really feels immersed in the history of Duras. The accommodation is particularly elegant and extremely comfortable. All of the bedrooms are ensuite and are simple yet stylish with very comfy beds and luxurious bed linen- all have views over a torqouise swimming pool to the vineyards beyond. There is so much space within L’Orangerie and in the gardens that it’s hard to imagine it ever feeling cramped even at maximum capacity. Duras itself is a special little town with lovely cafes, fromageries etc. with pretty walks to be enjoyed very close by. A little further afield, both Bergerac and Bordeaux offer visitors numerous attractions and places of interest.

With spectacular views over the valley, L'Orangerie is stylish, luxurious, comfortable and relaxing. All the south facing rooms have been elegantly and thoughtfully appointed with sumptuous mattresses and bed linen and luxurious bathroom toiletries. Every detail has been considered to provide guests with the utmost comfort. The ground floor, open-plan space with kitchen/dining and lounge areas is perfect for a day by the pool and summertime dining whilst the second floor kitchen/dining and lounge area has more far-reaching views and is ideal for cosier dining. The house feels secluded and private whilst also being only a 5 minute walk from Duras village which has a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. While on my 5 day stay at L'Orangerie we also enjoyed a day trip to Bordeaux (about a 1 hour drive away) and Toulouse (a 2 hour drive) - both beautiful cities worth a visit and there are also lots of other lovely, picturesque local villages to visit in the local area. Overall, it was a wonderful holiday - A stunning house with spacious rooms in a beautiful location. Highly recommended.
