Description of Property:
L’Orangerie is designed to accommodate twelve in total comfort. Whether you’re enjoying a spectacular sunrise and coffee by our heated pool or taking in the view of the magnificent Chateau, L’Orangerie is the perfect retreat from busy modern life.
The villa’s pale walls and stripped floors combine a calm aesthetic with mid-century furniture, French antiques, curated artwork and boutique luxury.
Six ensuite bedrooms, with stunning views over the Dropt Valley, provide sound sleep and a spectacular start to your day. Roomy interiors and a choice of terraces (and kitchens!) provide plenty of space for you to read, practice or chill out in peace.
Outside Amenities: L'Orangerie has two large gardens - the front south facing gardens is home to the heated pool, 6 burner Weber bbq, a dining table for 12 and plenty of seating under the gazebo or various other terraces. The back garden faces onto Chateau Duras and has a table for 8 and a 3 burner weber gas bbq. You have three Pashley bikes at your disposal and a ping pong table.
Surrounding Area: The village holds events all year, and markets on Monday and Wednesday. From July to early September additional events include weekly live music and a night market where the village becomes an open-air restaurant with an impressive choice of regional cuisine and local wines.
Other nearby villages have differently themed night markets and several of the farms and vineyards have open days.
The local wine, Côtes de Duras is similar to the neighbouring Bordeaux region. The region is dotted with pretty medieval fortified villages (bastides) with long histories connecting France and England and with a variety of grand châteaux .
The large rivers of the Dordogne and Garonne are nearby and make good holiday excursions for river trips and canoeing.
