Lavender Cottage
This gorgeous light and airy 2 bedroom stone built cottage with private pool and garden is located in a peaceful position on the edge of the village of Auriac-sur-Dropt in the northern Lot-et-Garonne. There are lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The village is home to a popular restaurant serving plat du jour and a la carte menus.

The town of Duras with its famous château steeped in history is also nearby. The medieval bastide villages of Eymet and Miramont-de-Guyenne are 5 to 10 minutes drive, where you will find a good selection of restaurants and supermarkets. Every day of the week there are traditional markets selling local produce in nearby villages and during summer there are night markets and soirées gourmandes where you can while away an al fresco evening dining while being accompanied by live music. The surrounding countryside is very pleasant for walking and cycling. There are many activities and trips in the area which will keep the children occupied. It is situated close to many excellent wine growing areas (Bergerac, Saussignac, Monbazillac, Duras) and we can advise on wine-tasting visits. The internationally acclaimed vineyards of St Emilion (1 hour) and the Medoc (2 hours) are well worth a visit. There is an 18 hole golf course at Chateau des Vigiers (20 mins) and a good local 9-hole course (20 mins).

  • Lavender Cottage was a delightful find and a perfect base. We immediately felt at home in this spacious and tastefully decorated cottage. Ideally located in the middle of the countryside, but close enough to local villages of Duras and Emmet. A big thank you to Janie and Hugh for being perfect hosts. We would be confident recommending it to friends and family. We would chose Lavender Cottage again,the Cottage has everything you need, so you won't be disappointed (October 2019)
  • Lovely place; spacious, light, well appointed, good facilities and nice little extras from owners Janie and Hugh who were both very pleasant and easy to get on with. We felt very relaxed. We really enjoyed the holiday and the weather was fine which clearly was also important. (September 2019)
  • We had a lovely time at Lavender Cottage, the property and the owners were both fantastic as was the weather. (August 2019)
  • A really pretty cottage in the middle of the countryside, it was perfect! A big thank you to Janie and Hugh for being perfect hosts. Having a private pool was great and the children loved it and a short walk to the village restaurant was nice too. Everything you need, thank you! (August 2019)
