We stayed in La Grange at La Platte and had one of our best holidays in 25 years of traveling to France. The location is beautiful and quiet but not too far to go for things to do. The design and quality of facilities of the gite are excellent, very comfortable with homely touches. Everything you need is there for a very comfortable stay. There are lots of different places to sit and relax and the gardens are lovely. The infinity pool is outstanding, kept beautifully clean by the magic robot, with as good a views as you’ll find anywhere. We had a very relaxing time visiting local villages/towns, cycling, walking, wine & Armagnac tasting and of course the local markets. The friendliness of the locals is amazing, like nothing else we’ve ever experienced in France. Our hosts Jillian & Matthew were very helpful and did everything they possibly could to make sure we had a great holiday. Eleven out of ten from us!

Beautiful gite with excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

Matthew and Jill have truly renovated this place beautifully down to every detail. We love how they used glass metal doors everywhere to take advantage of abundant sunlight in the south of France. The view from the pool overlooking the gentle hills are our favorite spot at any moment of the day. We also like the fact that we could monitor our kids from our patio while they played at the pool. The gite is well situated in the sense that it is completely calm and laid back, but we could reach interesting places to visit in 15-20 minutes drive. Matthew and Jill are very helpful with places to explore and things to visit around the area. Jill's welcome package with homemade bread and local wine just made everything perfect right from the beginning. Thanks and we will be coming back.

La Platte

  • 5 of 5

We found La Platte ideal for our family, lovely location and very relaxing, even with two excited children!

Matthew and Jill made us feel more than welcome, and their knowledge of the surrounding area and things to do was excellent.

The gite has been renovated to a high standard, with an impressive living/dining room with lots of space available for all to move around in, comfortable bedrooms and modern bathrooms. Set in a quiet location with a lovely pool area and wonderful views with plenty of outdoor space for the children to run around in.

Thank you Matthew and Jill for a wonderful holiday, we will see you again next year!

Peaceful, Stunning Views, Would recommend

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in La Grange for one week at the beginning of August and I had a wonderful time. Jillian and Matthew were very welcoming and having never visited this region of France before, I found their knowledge of the area a great help during my stay. The house is in a peaceful rural setting with stunning views of the countryside however within just a short drive you can find many things to do. I visited beautiful art galleries, local markets, a chateau for wine tasting and spent a day at a swimming lake. The spacious accommodation is the perfect place to relax and would be suitable for couples or families looking to explore Gascony.
