Welcome to Villa Duroux a tranquil paradise in the heart of the Dordogne countryside. Ideally located between Ribérac and Périgueux, Villa Duroux is owned and operated by  ourselves, Richard and Aleksandra. We moved to Montagrier in 2017 to follow our dream of the country life in France. After having worked in Energy Industry for a combined 40 years, we have taken on a fresh challenge and bought Villa Duroux, which is now home to us and our two young daughters Sophie and Sienna, as well as a thriving gîte business welcoming tourists from across the world. Villa Duroux is the perfect base for your Dordogne adventure, no matter what your passion is.


Our accommodation consists of two stylish and fully equipped Villas , each named after our children and you can find out more about them here.


Villa Duroux is the perfect place for your family holiday whether you want to be fully active or you just want to take time out and relax.



Eating in and around Villa Duroux couldn’t be easier as there is a large choice of restaurants, or you could just stay on site and have a relaxing meal or BBQ on your own terrace.



If you're looking for active holidays, we have just about everything at hand in Dordogne. We can organise your itinerary up front or you decide what and when you want to do.

Cannot Recommend Villa Duroux highly enough

Cannot Recommend Villa Duroux highly enough. Have just returned from a weeks holiday at gite 'Sophie'. The accommodation is spotless, spacious, comfortable and has every amenity you could possibly want. The pool facility is first class, and safe for little ones. The location is idyllic - in a stunning countryside location surrounded by corn fields and sunflowers, yet it is only 5 mins from Montagrier which has a great bar/restaurants. it is also centrally located to visit all the surrounding towns an villages and tourist spots such as Brontome, Perigueux etc. Finally, and probably most importantly - the hosts. Richard, Ola and their two children really made a difference. They were very warm, welcoming and attentive from the first minute to the last hurrah. Very knowledgeable of the local area -they can recommend places to visit, activities to do, book restaurants, everything you could wish for. They bring cocktails to the pool to enjoy a great sundowner. But most of all - They were just great company. Even presenting us with flowers, champagne and a wonderful homemade card as we celebrated our wedding anniversary, Cannot wait to return in the near future - and will definitely be staying for longer than a week - it just wasn't long enough!

Perfect for our needs.

Perfect for our needs. The hosts were welcoming and informative about the area and living in France in general. We are delighted to have the opportunity to stay there again shortly. The pool area was done really well with cold drinks and a cute little beach hut and seating area. My partner borrowed one of their bikes and enjoyed an afternoon exploring the area.

It was a peaceful haven

Anthony and Lesley and our Dog Bobo spent a delightful week at the Villa Duroux, staying in Villa Sophie (2nd September to 8th September 2020). It was a peaceful haven, and heaven from the minute we arrived to the sad farewell to our wonderful hosts Richard and Ola (not forgetting their delightful girls, Sophie and Sienna and their cutie Westie Enzo.. who made good friends with Bobo). The Villa is in a rural location, but do not let that put you off, the property is very near to some of the the most beautiful towns/villages. The local towns of Montagrier and Tocaine St Apre minutes away. Simple stunning! The accommodation is beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean with lovely bed linen and a super comfortable bed … makes you feel home from home. Richard and Ola were exemplar hosts. We had a warm, relaxed welcome. On the last couple of days of our holiday, we shared culinary delights, taking it in turns to host a BBQ evening … really superb evenings, drinking regional wine, sharing stories with lots of laughter and smiles with a finale of watching the sun go down over the blissful landscape surrounding Villa Duroux! We won’t forget our time with our wonderful hosts and thank them sincerely for allowing us to share their amazing home and making our holiday in the Dordogne so very special. We have made a special place in our hearts for our kind and thoughtful hosts and their amazing home "Villa Duroux".... a journey and memory, not easily forgotten. P.S. You must try the kayaking on La Dronne - it was a wonderful, peaceful activity, go as fast or as slow as you like … the riverbank wildlife was delightful.
