Galicia
For large families, this pair of fabulously decorated, well equipped stone gîtes are situated just a few kilometres from the small town of Duras with its château steeped in history, weekly market, restaurants and shops. Surrounded by nature, without neighbours or roads, peace and serenity welcomes you in a relaxing and peaceful setting.

The smaller gîte (Petit Galicia) accommodates up to 6 people in 3 bedrooms and the larger gîte (Grand Galicia) accommodates 8 people in 3 bedrooms.

The large swimming pool, which is heated from April to November, with its straw hut overlooks stunning scenery and is a great place for lazing in the sun, enjoying al fresco dining and sipping the chilled wines of the Duras appellation. You will find many vineyards dotted around nearby where you can sample the local wines.

The private lake is accessible for walks, picnics and fishing trips without a license. There is play equipment such as trampoline and swings in the grounds.

  • Everything about Galicia was perfect; the two houses together suited all us perfectly for my 70th celebrations! Laurent and Catherine were charming and they did everything to make our visit a success. The houses were well equipped and tastefully finished - much of it Laurent's own work. The games room was an unexpected bonus. The pool with its shallow step was perfect for the grand children learning to swim - Laurent maintained and cleaned it regularly (contd) (August 2022)
  • (contd)The walk round the lake, the boulodrome and and the trampoline all had good use and the owners house was far enough away so that none of our activities seemed to disturb them. For those wanting an early morning walk or even a run the little roads around suited the energetic ones in our family. We made the most of the fête in Duras and Katherine was kind enough to advise us on suitable activities and outings for the grandchildren. We will be returning very soon. Simon B (August 2022)
  • Galicia was a little corner of paradise. The pictures do not do it justice. Catherine and Laurant were delightful and so very helpful. Gite is perfectly equipped and perfectly finished. Ideally located to explore the amazing countryside. Lots for families to see and explore. The pool is amazing and the barn is a great addition for keeping everyone entertained. We really enjoyed our stay. Adele T (July 2022)
