Restaurants, food & wine

Lougratte is located in the vegetable and fruit region. All lettuce varieties but also a lot of fruit comes from the region. In our garden we have a small orchard with cherries, apples, pears, plums, apricots, figs, walnuts etc. etc.

We are surrounded by vineyards, which can be reached within half an hour . A visit to one of the wine houses is a "must". How about a visit to the castle in the Duras where several wine tastings are held in summer. Or a visit to the picturesque town of Saint-Emilion to enjoy a beautiful rose or red wine on a sunny terrace. Or Bergerac, to taste the white, red, rosé and sweet wines that are produced locally.

The area offers many 'ferme auberges' and delicious restaurants which offer wonderful local food for small prices.


During the summer the municipality of Lougratte organizes fun activities for the visitors in the campsite terrain. How about a delicious meal 'al fresco,' sampling local produce and music nights.

All villages in the surrounding area have weekly markets. In addition, every village has a bodega(wine bar) in summer months with lots of music, dancing and entertainment.

Things to do in the area:
- Several castles and bastides.
- several watersports on the Dordogne and Lot.
- Many wine regions such as Duras, Buzet, Monbazillac, Bergerac and Bordeaux Pécharmant and with
the superb Saint-Emilion wine region right in the middle of all this.
- Two golf courses within 15 minutes.
- Lovely restaurants and ferme auberges (food on the farm).
- Lots of culture in the summer months from street festivals to concerts in the small churches and exhibitions
in various public buildings.

We hebben hier in juli een weekje met twee kinderen (4 en 2) vakantie gevierd. Het is een heerlijk huisje om te verblijven. Het is praktisch ingericht en heeft alles wat je maar nodig hebt. De eigenaren zijn erg vriendelijk en staan altijd voor je klaar als je ze nodig hebt, maar gunnen je ook je privacy. Aan de kinderen is ook gedacht, want er is meer dan voldoende speelgoed aanwezig. Bedankt voor de fijne week Lidy en Nico! Aanrader!

Wij vebleven 2 weken in Lamaconne. Het huis is prima ingericht voor een gezin met 3 kinderen (onze kinderen zijn 10, 7 en 6). Er is speelgoed ter plaatse (gezelschapsspelletjes, autobaan, ...) en er is ook een zwembad. De ligging is fantastisch, zeer rustig, weidse velden, geen voorbijrijdend verkeer. De gastvrouw en -heer zijn zeer vriendelijk. Wanneer je ze nodig hebt, staan ze klaar om je te helpen, maar onze privacy werd helemaal gerespecteerd. Wij hebben genoten van een heel aangenaam verblijf. Een aanrader !
