Les Côteaux de Duras

Enriched by a readily rebellious culture

Duras country

The Pays de Duras is a major tourist location in Aquitaine.

The medieval city of Duras is the jewel in the crown, dominated by its castle which was used as a fortress during the Hundred Years’ War.

Traditional markets, second-hand fairs and flea markets, medieval festivals and re-enactments, inviting terraces, local gastronomy, the Maison des Vins of the Pays de Duras… offer countless opportunities to appreciate the friendliness of the locals.

In the surrounding area, watermills along the River Dropt, Romanesque churches, Aquitanian castles, the terroir with its rolling hills, can even be experienced from a hot air balloon !

Last but not least, the 200 vine growers, numerous craftspeople and the Monségur Jazz Festival all contribute to the richness of a readily rebellious culture which also aspires to be considered as an art of living.
