  • the name of the tenant and his or her address and phone number
  • the start and the end of the rental period (including time of access and departure)
  • the rent amount and what it includes (linen, towels, cleaning, electricity, water…) as well as what it excludes (heat, wood for the fireplace?…)
  • how the rent should be paid (Pay-pal, bank transfer, money wire, cheque?…), and when the rent should be paid (dates and amounts of down payment and balance)
  • whether a damage deposit is required, and if so, when is it payable, how damage is measured, how and when the deposit is refunded, and how deductions are made

About 12 kilometres away is Duras, a beautiful bastide town famous for its château, once home to the notorious Duc de Duras, a ruthless 12th century nobleman. La Réole has a charming Saturday market which takes place along the banks of the River Garonne.

Château Malrome where Toulouse Lautrec spent his summers with his mother is nearby. There are large supermarkets here and in Marmande, 15 kilometres away. Marmande is also a good place to shop for clothes, gifts, kitchenware and cosmetics.

About the Region

The surrounding countryside
The surrounding countryside

This region is not only famous for its wine, but also its gastronomic delights such as foie gras, confits, shellfish and duck. Everywhere there are vineyards, and little caves for tasting the wines. The most celebrated of the vine-growing areas is St. Émilion, only about 45 minutes away and well worth a visit, not only for its wine but also for the town's restaurants and beautiful little streets.

There are many local golf courses. At Château Vigier, there is both a 9 and an 18 hole course, and 2 excellent restaurants and there are also good golf courses at Casteljaloux and Langon.

The Canal Lateral de la Garonne
The Canal Lateral de la Garonne

Issegeiac is a medieval village with a great Sunday market, and a good restaurant for lunch. The Dordogne region is nearby, with many châteaux, gardens and market towns to visit.

Bordeaux is only an hour's drive away and is known locally as a mini-Paris. It is well worth a visit for its museums, art galleries, shops and superb restaurants. To avoid parking problems there is a frequent train service from La Réole through the beautiful countryside.
