Villeneuve-de-Duras is a smallish (population 257) commune in the Lot-et-Garonne Department of South-West France. It has quite a significant British population, a Restaurant - Le Jardin - a Post Office, a Boulangerie (which makes the finest chocolatines in the region) and a Quincillerie (hardware store which, in this case, also sells some groceries). I am told that the church has one service a year. Very importantly it has a Pétanque club. One of my reasons for visiting at the time I did was to play in the Fête de Pétanque (of which more later).
