Bobie is a lovely 3 bedroomed stone farmhouse around 1.4km from the pretty village of Duras in the northern Lot-et-Garonne - the heart of France's wine and gastronomic region. It offers a perfect setting for relaxing, yet has easy access to the weekly market, numerous restaurants, shops and various sporting activities. It's an ideal base for wine tasting in places such as St Emilion and visiting historic towns such as Eymet, Monsegur and Bergerac. There are daily markets in this area all year round.
Situated on a hill overlooking lovely countryside, Duras has a fascinating château steeped in history and is well worth a visit, especially when hosting a special event. The picturesque village comes alive in the summer with weekly events such as the wine festival, antiques fairs, very popular Thursday night market with its open air music. The wine festival is a must, if only to see the Montgolfier balloons which almost touch the rooftops of the village houses!
