A quirky lovingly restored traditional house in the middle of the popular French village of Duravel, in the heart of the Cahors wine area. Calm, secluded, with a beautiful shady green walled garden not overlooked by any neighbour.

Ο χώρος

This house is in the historic village of Duravel, South–West France. 30 kms from Cahors. Nearest airports are Bergerac and Toulouse.
Duravel is in the heart of the Lot valley renowned for its lush countryside and Cahors wine. The village has a bar–restaurant, a take–away pizza restaurant, a baker, a newsagent–tobacconist, a butcher, a chemist, a small supermarket, a hairdresser and a tourism information centre where English is spoken. It is a couple of kilometres from the Lot river, with places to fish, canoe, and swim.
Although this quirky house is just steps away from the centre of the old village it has a secluded and sunny walled garden with a shady eating and sitting area. There is also a barbecue. The ground floor of the house is a large sitting room with beams, a wood burning stove and stone walls, plus a TV screen for viewing DVDs. The shower-room with bidet, washbasin and toilet is also on the ground floor, along with a small utility room containing a washing machine and cleaning materials etc. The original, wooden staircase leads to the first floor, which has a simple kitchen, a sitting room with a log fire, and two double bedrooms, both with antique French beds. The third bedroom is in a beautiful, spacious stone loft. A single mattress and a travel cot are also available.
This house has been lovingly restored, and has many original features and furniture.
Local activities include swimming, fishing, canoeing, horse–riding, golf, walking, hiking, cycling (on and off–road), wine–tasting, eating, cinema, sight–seeing: caves (including Peche Merle), chateaux, bastide villages, museums, local food and bric–a–brac markets. There are several regular produce markets nearby and a few larger supermarkets 15 minutes’ drive away.

Lovely, quiet house, with a vintage interior. In the summertime one can easily live in the discrete garden. Very silent village.

Nous avons passé de très agréables moments à Duravel. Le logement est très cosy et nous avons été accueillis avec une bonne bouteille de vin. Le jardin est magnifique et on s'y sent très bien. Mike a communiqué avec nous très rapidement et facilement. Merci beaucoup

Mike ist ein sehr entgegenkommender Gastgeber, der seine Gäste bereits vor der Reise mit umfangreichem und informativem Material über das Haus und seine Umgebung versorgt. Das Haus ist ein großer Altbau (viel, viel Platz), das schön restauriert ist; es liegt inmitten eines kleinen typischen Dorfkerns (Duravel), in dem es alle Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt. Das Dorf ist vom Weinanbaugebiet des bekannten Cahors-Weines umgeben; der Lot liegt ca. 1,5 km entfernt - man kann dort auch baden (am Rande eines zu Duravel gehörigen Camping-Platzes). Ca. 40 km entfernt liegt die sehr schöne mittelalterliche Stadt Cahors. Die Unterkunft ist für jeden, der die Lot-Region erkunden möchte, zu empfehlen.

We didn't meet the host but his friend was very pleasant and most helpful. We very much enjoyed our stay in Duravel. The house was as described with a delightful garden. Mike was quick to respond to any queries and his local contact checked in on us to make sure all was well.It was well located for us while house hunting, and the local bakery and grocers were very friendly and had great goodies which we enjoyed regularly. We did go swimming in the Lot river nearby which was most enjoyable in the heat!

I recently spent four months at Mike and Linda's house in Duravel and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it to anyone wishing to stay in a traditional, charming, character-filled property in a quiet but atmospheric village in this beautiful corner of France. The pictures on the website hardly do their house justice. The property is all traditional golden stone and aged wooden beams; candles and random pieces presumably picked up from local brocante fairs over the years, lending it the authenticity and warmth of a permanently lived in home. The old wooden staircase is magnificent, as is the secluded walled garden, even in January - although the display of fragrant wisteria during April came as a breathtakingly beautiful surprise. The bedrooms are quiet and peaceful, one boasting a stunning original wrought iron bed. The other is traditional carved painted wood. Mike and Linda were extremely welcoming and helpful hosts. They left me thorough instructions (and a lovely bottle of local wine!); even installing an extra heater in the bathroom in case I was cold. Their description of the house was completely accurate. The wifi connection was indeed extremely good and although the house has no central heating, the woodburning stove and supplementary electric heaters meant I was never cold. The washer/dryer was very useful and the water gets instantly hot. Mike was always quick to respond to any queries via email and had lots of useful suggestions for places to eat, things to see etc. The house is barely two minutes walk from a charming 11th/12th century village church and the same distance from useful amenities including a boulangerie, grocery store, pharmacy and cafe/bar. There are several vineyards within walking distance where you can buy tasty examples of the local wine. There are also numerous walking trails in the area, through the woods or along the river, perfect for dogs and/or cyclists. Indeed Mike and Linda's place is highly recommended for dog owners. I had my pooch with me and found the house extremely dog friendly. There is a park just two minutes away and the secure walled garden is a huge bonus on lazy days! The house is in the middle of the village but feels completely private, although the neighbours and other villagers -in the main a mixture of French, Dutch and English/Irish - are extremely welcoming. Thankyou for your hospitality Mike and Linda. I had a wonderful stay!

I'm a semi-retired university teacher. I love teaching, dogs, cats, Welsh rugby, wine, sunny weather, my grandchildren, films, football, walking, swimming in the river Lot, reading, history, politics, philosophy, and some novels – not necessarily in that order.
