Air conditioned cabin with swimming pool, ten minute to town Credit Card welcom



Updated: 11-Nov-2016
Comfortable air conditioned cabin with shared swimming pool and play area.

Set in stunning countryside and surrounded by vineyards, HolidayinFrance.name offers a selection of cabins to accommodate up to 6 guests This advertisement features our 2 bedroom cabin to accommodate 4 or 5. Please look at our own website www.holidayinfrance.name for details of our 3 bedroom cabin and telephone or email us with any further questions. We offer the facility of payment by credit card with no surcharge.

Le Cabri is a small holiday complex with just 9 cabins, set in 14 acres on the border of the Dordogne and the Lot-et-Garonne departments, between the rivers of the same names. Although set in a very rural and peaceful area, it is only a 10 minute walk to the village of Duras, with its good selection of shops, restaurants, bars and the famous fortified chateau standing guard at the head of the village square.

The cabins are sited in their own private gardens with hedging to protect your privacy and each has a terrace or decking area, garden furniture and a barbeque. Inside they have two or three bedrooms, a shower room/ wc and a well fitted kitchen area with gas cooker, micro-wave, fridge and separate freezer. They have UK Free view Satellite TV. We can supply bed linen and towels (not pool towels) if required. Each cabin has air conditioned bedrooms for summer comfort and heating for winter coziness. WiFi is available.

The site has a swimming pool, a fishing pond and other leisure facilities (boules, play park, table tennis, clock golf etc) all included in your rental cost.

If you decide to fly and not hire a car (everything you need is within walking distance) we can collect you from Bergerac or Bordeaux airports.

Please note that our normal changeover day is Thursday. The ferry/air fares are often lower mid week and the traffic on French roads is much quieter at this time in the summer. The traffic at weekends in late July and August should be avoided, it is terrible. Out of season we can be flexible and can also offer short breaks (for instance wedding accommodation).

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would like to thank you so much for our wonderful and very enjoyable stay in one of your Holiday Chalets in Duras, As you are aware we came down in March of this year and the weather was not of the best. However, we have to say that we found the Chalet so very quick and easy to heat that it became so cosy that we felt we would rather stay in and relax .The Chalet was beautifully kept and scrupulously clean. The patio even had a B.B.Q. on it if we wanted to use it. Although it was on a holiday village, the Chalets were situated far enough apart and surrounded by hedges, and ours (as did most) had nice views. Also we found it very private and tranquil. The added advantage was that on the site there is a very nice and reasonably priced Restaurant whose food was good. The price for this Chalet was most reasonable and the extra small charges which included charges for the electricity were very fair. Imagine our surprise therefore that within a few days of arriving home we received a refund cheque for the security deposit from you and the charge for electricity was surprisingly small. We could hardly believe it as we had the heating on quite a lot as it was not very good weather at the time. So may we thank you so much for such a lovely stay, and we hope to come again a lot more often now that we have found such a lovely place to stay. Thank you so much.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week staying at Le Cabri in one of the holiday chalets. The chalet was fabulous, it had all you need for your holiday including air conditioning which even though you paid for separately was very reasonable at only £10 for the week. We would definitely recommend a stay here in the chalets, it's location to Duras was great and there is a lot to do in the area. Le Cabri also has a lovely restaurant where we ate a number of times, the food was great. Overall a fabulous holiday and hopefully we will be returning soon.

Well equipped cabin in beautiful relaxed setting.

  • 5 of 5

The three of us enjoyed a week's stay in a two bedroomed cabin, which had it's own private garden and patio area. It proved very good value for money. Gordon and Jane were both very helpful. The small and friendly site is quiet and well maintained. The pool is also kept clean. The English site owners also have the restaurant Le Cabri. The food here is authentic and good value. The service is also friendly. Duras is a 10 minute walk away. The market on a Monday is worth a visit. The Tuesday night market at Aymet is also recommended.

A lovely setting for the perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully constructed cabin set on a lovely camp-site set close enough to Duras to walk to but far enough away to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Room size was more than adequate, the site was well maintained and with the hedges on the boundaries of the cabins plots gave you the privacy you need. Only been back home one day but already planning on returning for next year would recommend to everybody. A lovely setting for the perfect Holiday

Owner's Response: Dear Aaron, Thank you for your lovely comments. We do try to make Le Cabri special, rather than just another "Camp site". The new air conditioning in the bedrooms is proving very popular in the hot weather. Thank you, Gordon And another thank you as you have already returned for another stay!!

From the Owner

Shelaigh and Gordon lived in the Duras area for 23 years and have only recently started to spend part of the year in the UK The local people are so very kind and friendly and the area is just beautiful. Apart from the amenities at Le Cabri, Duras is only a short walk and has just about everything you could need. You hardly need a car unless you want to visit all the lovely markets and bastide village in the area or go wine tasting. If you decide to fly to Bergerac or Bordeaux and do not want to hire a car we can arrange to pick you up and return you to the airport. If you want to hire a low cost car we would suggest that you try the local independent car hire Company http://www.buzz-carhire.com/

‘Le Cabri’ is open all year offering a warm and friendly welcome for those who want a relaxing and stress free holiday. We offer 2 and 3 bedroom cabins.

Nestled in rolling countryside between the Dordogne and the Garonne rivers, ‘Le Cabri’ offers a genuine taste of rural France. This former farm boasts beautiful views and stunning scenery of this very unspoiled area. Yet it is a 10 min stroll along a country road to the medieval village of Duras with its spectacular fortified Chateau standing guard at the head of the square, and its good selection of shops, restaurants, bars and weekly market. Plus lovely weekly evening markets in the summer months.

From this base you can enjoy the delights of one of France’s most varied rural landscapes – beautiful bastide towns, Romanesque churches, windmills, fields of vines and sunflowers and gastronomic delights such as foie gras, truffles, confit, and Plum, Cherry, Apple and Nut orchards.

Chose between Canoe trips along the rivers and canals or wine tasting in the hundreds of chateaux surrounding Bordeaux and Bergerac; from the world famous reds of St Emillion to the sweet whites of Monbazillac. Play at 9 and 18 hole golf courses, fish in the local rivers or Le Cabri's own fishing lake, or just sit in your own private garden or by the swimming pool and enjoy the glorious sunshine.

You hardly need to leave the village except to buy bread and Croisant's for breakfast, as the Le Cabri, swimming pool, clock golf, table tennis and boules court are right next door.

From the Owner

Le Cabri has it all! A well stocked fishing pond, a swimming pool, clock golf, boules court, table tennis and a children's play area. Plus the ancient village of Duras 10 minutes walk away and the beautiful country side to walk or cycle on the quite roads. Perhaps this quote says it all: 'Lot-et-Garonne - a blessed little corner of South-West France made up of gently rolling hills, fields of corn and sunflowers, winding roads empty of cars and pretty little towns and villages, where people always have time to talk to you. It's like an unspoiled Tuscany or Provence, and I'd better shut up now or I'll be responsible for spoiling it!' Sam Taylor, The Observer Newspaper.
