    • L’HOSTELLERIE DES DUCS IN DURAS, IN LOT-ET-GARONNE: AN AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE IN THE HEART OF COTES-DE-DURAS

      Discovery of a haven of serenity

      A few steps from the majestic Château de Duras, the Hostellerie des Ducs reveals itself as a haven of serenity in the heart of Lot-et-Garonne. Founded in 1980 by the Blanchet family, this elegant residence finds its roots in a unique history, shaped by the passion of three generations devoted to the art of welcoming.


      A family history rooted in tradition

      It was by chance that Jeanne and Marcel Blanchet, former bakers from Château-Thierry, set their sights on this blessed region of Côtes-de-Duras. Their son, Jean François, a young culinary prodigy, embodied the reason for this change of direction. The idea of creating a hotel-restaurant then germinated in their minds, and destiny guided them to a place steeped in history: a former convent run by the Sisters of the Holy Family. Thus was born the Hostellerie des Ducs.


      The Côtes-de-Duras terroir in the spotlight

      The providential meeting with the Blancheton family, passionate winegrowers from the La Moulière estate, opened a fruitful dialogue. The dry white wines, enhancing the aromatic Sauvignon, the elegant reds made from Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as the remarkable sweet wines, vinified with foie gras, forged indissoluble links between the two families. The discovery of an exceptional terroir, conducive to the expression of flavors, was the catalyst for a memorable adventure.


      Inauguration in 1980: a family tradition anchored in time

      July 20, 1980 marked the official opening of the Hostellerie des Ducs. Under the leadership of Jean François and Marcel in the kitchen, Jeanne and young Christine in the dining room, the establishment welcomed its first guests. In 2004, Vincent, heir to the culinary tradition, joined his elders in the kitchen. Today, the next generation is embodied by three generations, with Jean-François, Christine, Vincent, Stéphanie, and young Hugo, who is already flourishing in contact with his elders in the culinary art.


      Master restorer: recognized excellence

      Vincent, bearer of the family tradition, has achieved the envied title of Maître Restaurateur. This distinction, a guarantee of excellence, underlines its commitment to authentic, quality cuisine. At Hostellerie des Ducs, everything is homemade, from the careful preparation of dishes to the meticulous selection of ingredients, offering each guest an unforgettable culinary experience.

    We went for lunch. Simply superb and at a fair price. Oct 2023, a superb meal, lovely setting, beautifully presented, attentive staff, and wine for 102 euros a couple is (IMHO) great value!
