Mirathon, Baleyssagues, Duras, France
4 self-catering gites near Bordeaux, Duras, Marmande and Bergerac

"Mirathon" is a 17th-century farmhouse and is made up of four carefully restored individual gites.

Each gite has its own kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedrooms and a private patio or balcony, ensuring that when groups or families take the whole property for their holiday they can have as much privacy as they want. Or, if they wish, they can be totally communal - ideal for meals as there is group seating for 30 people. Each gite has been sympathetically restored, tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard retaining many of its original stone walls and exposed beams. They offer relaxed and comfortable accommodation with added benefits of fully fitted kitchens, modern bathrooms, well furnished sitting-rooms and comfortable bedrooms.

Often described as the French Tuscany, this tranquil area in the quiet Lot-et-Garonne countryside is only 4km from the fascinating bastide town of Duras and is surrounded by activities suitable for all ages. You can easily fill your days exploring, sightseeing or merely relaxing on the sunny terrace of the 11m x 5m Roman pool.

The four gites at Mirathon are called Aquitaine (our largest gite), Garonne, Dordogne and Gascogne. Full details of each gite can be found on our website. Our four gites sleep eight, six, four (two adults and two children as there are bunk beds) and four and extra beds can be provided as well as sofa beds. Altogether at Mirathon, we can provide 6 double bedrooms, 5 twin bedrooms, and 1 family bedroom. All bedrooms are spacious with excellent beds, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and are fully equipped with comfortable and modern bedding.
