“Wonderful stay in a Beautiful Town”
Reviewed 30 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We recently travelled to Duras for our first family holiday with our 3 month old son. The Gite fitted our requirements perfectly, we enjoyed lazy afternoons by the pool, strolled into the town which is a stones throw away and sat out on the patio in the evening enjoying a glass of local wine. Fergus and Marie were wonderful hosts and were so generous, they let us borrow lots of baby items which they had purchased for their new Grandson including a cot, baby bath, playmat and changing mat too. The pool is such a fantastic addition to the Gite, very well maintained too. Duras itself is a beautiful town, we enjoyed lunching at the local restaurants and cafes. The Chateau is well worth a visit as is the market in Duras on a Monday morning and the night market in nearby Monsegur. We hope to return many more times in the future as the Gite is such a great place from which to explore this beautiful part of the world.
Thanks again
Claire, Kieran and Elliott

“Lovely find”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is a real gem.
Comfortable and well equipped accommodation. (Esp the bed, really comfy!) The pool is lovely. It is a quiet area, 2 min walk into duras where there is a selection of lovely restaurants, bakery and the chateau. The owners are friendly but give you total privacy at the same time. Sitting out of an evening with a bottle of wine really is lovely. We will be visiting again next year, hopefully for the night markets this time.

“Comfortable & Convenient”

The owners, Fergus & Marie, were friendly & helpful. The gite was compact & suited us well. The centre of Duras with shops & restaurants was a few minutes walk away.

“Great Gite for Couple”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

For a "senior" couple like us, the major selling point for Le petit Arlequin is it's location. Within easy walking distance of all ameneties boulangeries, bars, restaurants and supermarket. Having previously lived in the area we were fortunate enough to know exactly what we were looking for.
Whilst the kitchen / living room is quite small it is well equiped and for our needs perfect.
The BBQ and the availabilty of an extra refrigerator in the basement were all we needed for our own catering, when we did not eat out in the evenings.
Secure gated drive and easy parking whilst effectively living in the town are really good. The gardens and views are very quiet and pleasant with the added bonus of a lovely new swimming pool.
Although we were already familiar with the locality Fergus was most helpful without being at all intrusive.
Would recommend for any one in our situation, who do not need the faciities of a large kitchen/dining room.

“Picturesque Gite with great facilities in superb location”
Reviewed 23 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.
