“Picturesque Gite with great facilities in superb location”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Fergus and Marie are excellent hosts, they made us feel welcome from the off and provided a booklet with lots of information on things to do and see that we found very useful to plan our stay. The Gite has everything you need it is clean , with compact but well equipped kitchen , comfy bed, good shower and wifi, there is even an array of books to read while relaxing in the sheltered garden . Parking is on site and although we were out and about in the car quite a bit because we were in France for the Euro's the location of the Gite made most things within walking distance. Good Carrefour supermarket for all necessities open 8 til 8 ( except Sun I think it closes at 1:30) excellent bakery for croissants , bread and patisseries , market for fresh produce every Monday and a selection of good quality restaurants and cafes all less than 5 mins walk. I can recommend the chateau for an afternoon or for a longer stroll take a trip to the local chocolate factory about 25 min walk away. The icing on the cake is the pool , although the weather was a little bit cold while we were there to do more than take a quick dip each day. All in all a great place to stay.

“Brilliant Stay”
Reviewed 29 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Hosts gave us a great welcome and looked after us superbly. The Gite very comfy and had every thing we needed and more. New pool in the garden is a gem with wonderful views of the country side.

“Wonderful Gite in a great location”
Reviewed 19 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My wife and I stayed at Le Petit Arlequin for 4 weeks while looking for a place to buy in the surrounding areas. This was the perfect introduction to Duras. The owners Fergus and Marie are very helpful and always available for any questions but never intrusive. The Gite is located in Duras and it is an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants. It is on a slope but the terrace area in front of the Gite is flat and gets the sun all day long. I have limited mobility and use a rollator but was easily able to get around. They have just completed an incredible 12 x 6 meter pool. It is lovely. It is only a one bedroom Gite but is perfect for a couple. I would highly recommend Le Petit Arlequin.

“Friendly welcome. Gites was clean and comfortable.”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The owners were friendly & very helpful. Great view over fields. Duras is a very friendly town. Great restaurant facing the chateaux. Lots to see and do in the area. Not far from Bergerac & Bordeaux. The pool was being built when we visited. Kitchen compact and great combination cooker grill microwave. Was great accommodation for the two of us. Very close to butchers, bakers and bar. The bar by the town square is a great place to meet people.. We went in February looking for a house and Duras was a great centre.. Off street parking. Gated property.. Pretty area. Great vineyards!

“A gem of a find”
Reviewed 3 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed in this delightful Gite for 2 nights and will definitely book a return visit. Duras is a charming village with lots going on and the surrounding area is truly beautiful. Le Petit Arlequin is set close to the centre yet feels relaxing and rural. The Quinn's have created a little piece of heaven. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable and stylishly decorated and the host and hostess are on hand if you need them or simply want advice on the best local restaurants. We will return'

“Ideally situated - a countryside feel in a convenient location”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We received such a warm, friendly welcome from the owners, who are English, but have embraced the French lifestyle and integrated into local village life. The gite was traditional on the outside, but tastefully updated on the inside with all mod-cons, including a washing machine and second "beer fridge"!. The property was well maintained, clean and comfortable. The surrounding garden was spacious and felt private due to the gentle partitioning using the natural treeline between the owners home and the gite. The above ground pool was available to use and was well maintained. I understand a new pool is due to be built this year, ready for next year. The location was perfect; to the rear of the property there was the owners substantial garden and countryside, and the local town/village was a five minute walk away, as was the Chateaux Duras which overlooks the town. I highly recommend a tour of the Chateaux. There are local shops, a bakery, restaurants and cafe's and a supermarket 5 mins drive away, so everything you could need is all within a short distance, but feels worlds away when back at the gite. I will be returning next year :)
