About Hiram E Warren

We are an American/British couple who live in Oxford city centre, but love France and the French way of life. We spend as much time at our home in France as we can; however I am still working for the NHS and can't get away as much as I would like. My CP, Stephen, is a retired NHS property consultant/surveyor. Our dream is to be able to afford to retire to France (both of us) someday. Stephen can be in France much more often than I can, so he will be the on-site manager when we have guests. We love our little bit of ''heaven on Earth'' and hope that our guests will also.

Hiram E Warren purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Hiram E Warren chose Duras

We searched most of Western France for nearly 10 years before settling on the Lot-et-Garonne department. We like the mild(ish) winters and the long, hot summers of the area. Our house is rural,but not isolated. We are only 2 km from Duras, on the D668 which is a well-traveled link road from Duras to Miramont de Guyenne. Bergerac airport is approximately 45 minutes away and Bordeaux is just over an hour away by car. The area has many vineyards and fruit orchards.

my mother and i had the most wonderful 4 days at this lovely gite, the host was fantastic and treated us like one of the family . the gite had some lovely furniture and the beds were very comfortable . the garden was beautiful , just the spot to enjoy a glass of french wine. the town of duras with its restaurants bars and chateau is just a stones throw away. the gite is very good value , highly recommend it,

Ideal for exploring the region

This was so much better than the photos suggest. The host is very friendly and helpful and the gite is set in a large garden with sunny patio surrounded by flowers. Inside the rooms are spacious with antique furniture giving it very much a french gite feel.

It is walking distance of Duras which is a pretty town with a market on a Monday and places to eat and drink. We also visited the chocolate factory a short drive away. There are also plenty of vineyards to visit.

This is a ideal place to stay if you want to explore the region.
