Le Grand Maine is situated just 1 km from the village which has a bakery and there are excellent restaurants close by. Villeneuve-de-Duras is in the Lot et Garonne, a few miles to the south of The Dordogne and close to the Gironde Department, making it an excellent base for exploring this beautiful area. The region has literally thousands of chateaux to view and is dotted with lovely medieval villages and bastide towns with superb gastronomic markets most days.

The region is most famous for its Prunes, Foie gras and of course, wine.

The location and accommodation was excellent for our family. We enjoyed exploring the local area and then relaxing by the pool. Jan and Andy really looked after us and cannot recommend this holiday enough. We are not a family that ever returns to the same area / resort where we have previously holidayed but this will definitely be the exception!
