Description

Offering French sophistication, effortless natural elegance & genuine laid-back charm, the solid tranquility of Maison Duras, a medieval priory, is set against a glorious backdrop of rolling hills, plum orchards & vineyards, where children can climb trees and run wild through meadows whilst their parents chill out with a cool glass of sauvignon blanc by the slate-grey pool.

The building dates back to the 12th century and is wrapped around a beautiful cobbled courtyard, lending a serene calm to this stunning medieval property. All rooms have superb views, either onto the central courtyard or to the countryside beyond. 

Maison Duras is positively organic in its make-up: the stone walls are massive, providing a unique insulation from the heat outside; huge glass windows allow for natural light all day until candles are lit at dusk (lights are rarely switched on in the house until nightfall)  With zinc rooves and terracotta tiles, old oak doors, travertine & slate bathrooms and private shady terraces overlooking the pool, orchards and fields, it is a naturally tranquil haven.

Overlooking the courtyard to one side and the pool on the other, the main living room of the property is a fabulous open plan space which encompasses kitchen, dining area & sitting room.  The well stocked kitchen includes everything even the most discerning holiday chefs could require. A large barbeque is also on hand – ask owners Fabienne and Frederic for some of their vines (Fabienne’s family have a superb Cotes de Duras vineyard and Frederic is also involved in the international wine business).

A second sitting room doubles as the TV room – with a large flat screen TV, DVD player and stack of DVDs, books and boardgames.

With four fabulous bedrooms the property sleeps up to 10 in comfort. Three bedrooms all have generous kingsize beds & open-plan ensuite bathrooms. All three bedrooms are easily large enough to place a cot. The fourth bedroom is kid-paradise: a dormitory den at the top of a winding staircase (with child gates) where a secure glass window overlooks the main sitting room, allowing a sneaky peep for the babes at bedtime.

The stunning, slate grey pool, overlooking fields and orchards, is both alarmed and fenced and has generous steps which stretch the entire width of the pool – perfect for new swimmers to gain confidence.

Beyond the pool, the enormous garden is large enough for football matches (they even have goal posts available), cricket/rounders, or simply to send the kids off on a treasure hunt.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES 

Wifi throughout, TV/DVD, DVD’s. The house and garden are well stocked with toys, DVDs, a sandpit, swing, seesaw, CDs, and books. Wheelchair accessible.

AROUND

Situated on over five acres of land in the central Bordeaux region, the house is perfectly located to take advantage of all the best of the wine region, the local collection of villages and the countryside.

    Thank you for such an amazing villa. All 9 of us have enjoyed our stay.
    We’ve been to your Villa five times now, every summer and the surrounding countryside is magnificent. We are definitely coming again soon.

  • The B family, August 18, 2018

    We all loved this vacation. I loved climbing in the trees and of course swimming in the pool.
    The house was very beautiful and clean.
    It was so worth it !

  • The J family, August 4, 2018

    We have had a fabulous week here at Maison Fontaine. The house is beautiful, so much so that diminished our enthusiasm to excursions !!
    We were all blissfully happy relaxing by the pool, playing ping pong, haunting the lézards and enjoying BBQ lunches and dinners !
    I’m sure will be back.

  • The McI. family, July 21, 2018

    We have very much enjoyed our stay here. The lovely decoration and feel of the villa combined with the surrounding countryside has made our stay memorable.
    We have greatly appreciated the provision of outdoor activities from football to boules, helping us to fill our days regardless of the weather. We have made great use of the terrace, either sheltering from the glaring – but lovely- sun or from the occasional thunder and lightening and overall the spaces around the villa have been lovely to spend time in.
    Thank you.

  • The B. Family, June 9, 2018

    Dear Frederic and Fabienne, what a lovely house!
    We have had a wonderful time here at Mounicat. You have made here a beautiful holiday home.
    Everything works. It looks beautiful, is very homely and the design deserves an award.
    Our 2 kids ( 4 & 2) do not want to go home !!! They have had so much fun and so we have.

  • The B family, June 2, 2018

    The whole family enjoyed their stay immensely. We had sun, fun & thunderstorms !
    The cottage was AMAZING. Sitting at the terrace with a bottle of wine was perfect.
    Thank You Frédéric

  • The A. Party, May 26, 2018

    We arrived needing a rest and sun and your villa gave us both and are very appreciative: thank you !
    We get to enjoy the local countryside through all the walks we did. The one starting at the end of the road was very convenient !
    Duras has a few hidden spots that we enjoyed more than St Emilion or Bergerac. The chocolate shop were you can taste everything, the rose garden and the market being a few.
    There was little reason to stay inside.
    Next time we will do a day in Bordeaux but just weren’t feeling it once we get into the swing of laid back French living.

  • The M. family, May 12, 2018

    Thank you so much for your generosity! such a welcome surprise on arrival to house a few goodies waiting.
    The bread and camembert didn’t last long.
    The house is beautiful, such a seamless marriage of rustic and sleek design.
    We love the outdoor living area, what a perfect setting to spend our days.
    When the sun didn’t shine, it was a blessing as we love ourselves away from the villa to explore the area in search of entertainment for the kids ( all under 5 !). We were not disappointed: griffon farm park, the forest ropes adventure & val de gorse. Such a great area of France.
    At the cilla, when the kids weren’t in the pool there was never a dull moment as this place is a kid paradise from the thoughtful toys , swing set, football posts, boules court & the kids room just all kept the excitement building over !

  • P. Party, April 28, 2018

    Our week came to a close to soon !
    What a peaceful setting ! Such a rustic elegance! I found it hard to leave in the evening to dine out in the town because the sun set the patio and was so inviting to watch as the sun set into the hills beyond the meadow.
    Thank you very much Fabienne & Frederic for the wonderful welcome surprise of so many treats: wine, cheese, fraises, biscuits , bread and milk. you are so kind.
    I also appreciated the special touch of flowers in each bedroom & the dinning table.
    I have rented houses in several places in France, Europe, the US and I have not found any to have come close to being perfect as this house ! We do hope to return some day!

    We have had a really enjoyable week in your beautiful house.
    The attention to design details is superb, from the soft furnishings to the flower arrangements and beautifully selected art and furniture.
    The light and space in the living room has been a joy every morning and we have spent many happy hours around the table enjoying the wonderful local wine each evening. The kitchen is well equipped and we found it easy to prepare meals for nine of us.
    The children have had fun in the pool, playing games and visiting horses at the bottom of the field. We loved the outdoor seating area which has provided a grown-up space where we can watch the children in the pad.
    Happy days !!
    Thanks.

    We had a fantastic time in this lovely house.
    The house was perfectly equipped, nothing was missing and we loved the decoration.
    We’ve been using and enjoying the pool very much. Kids could run safely in the garden and play football.
    Lovely time and memories.

    It’s been a wonderful week for us, transported at first by BA. It meltdown, but we didn’t let that stop us. After 16 hours in the car, we arrived to a lovely welcome form Fabienne and Frédéric 
    Maison Fontaine is a fabulous house, beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped. Everything we could ever need is here. We had some warm weather so the pool had a work out and the under covered area was the perfect place fro pre dinner drinks ( and others).
    Two of us had stayed in the general area some years ago so it was fun visiting hamlets and villages like Duras and Eymet.
    We can endorse Frederic’s recommendation of Auberge St Jean and XIII clôchers at Monteton. As a result we are all returning home considerably heavier than we we arrived.
    Our thanks to Fabienne and Frédéric for making this lovely property available to us. We hope to be back in the not too distant future.

    We’ve had a perfect stay in this beautiful house. Such a warm welcome with flowers in each room, a welcome package and everything so nicely decorated.
    We’ve enjoyed the pool, when the sun appeared and went to St Emilion ( and surrounding areas) and to Bergerac. Especially St Emilion is a nice ( although very touristic) village.
    Of course we climbed the tower of the Duras Castle and shopped at the bakery and the Carrefour Contact supermarket in Duras.
    Thank you very much for letting us enjoying this hidden gem.

    Fréderic’s Wine Tour of Off Piste chateau was phenomenal. A whole 12 hours talking about Wine !Delightful vineyards visited. A real must !
    The recommendations of local restaurants were very helpful. The Micheline starred Auberge de St Jean was a highlight, well worth a trip.
    The accommodation is fantastic and a real joy to be here. We have all had a super relaxing time here.

    We have had a fantastic time here. A warm and happy greeting from Frederic and Fabienne.
    The welcome basket was very much appreciated. The house is glorious, a «  home from home », we have felt so happy here for our month long stay.
    Our children and gran-children joined us mid trip and very much enjoyed all the fun by the pool and in the garden.
    The surrounding countryside is beautiful and we visited many lovely restaurants ( too many to mention). However la Cour d’Eymet was outstanding. Duras, Monsegur, Eymet, all lovely and if you fancy Brantome is magical ( but 2 hours drive).
    We have not wanted for anything during our stay. Frederic has been incredibly helpful with local information, restaurants, food.
    Again, all we can say is that it has been a blissful and relaxing month.
    Frederic, thank you so much for all your help, you have made our stay a delight.
    Your house will always be a truly lasting and lovely memory.

    It was great to be the first Aussies to ever stay there, but I’m sure that we won’t be the last. Thank you to you also for being so easy to deal with.
