Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Relaxing home away from home
This is our 2nd year staying with Matthew & Jillian and we had a fantastic stay as expected. This year we hired both Al Hambra and La Grange for 3 families, and enjoyed the space between the two. There is everything that you could need for a family holiday, plus the pool and grounds are wonderful for relaxing and/or play time. Matthew and Jillian are super helpful and were always on hand with suggestions of places to visit and eat. We will be returning!

A place of beauty and peace
We stayed here for two weeks with our two girls. The gite is very comfortable and well equipped with a wonderful aspect across a valley of vines. We really enjoyed the pool and simply the quiet space to relax unwind and rest. Our hosts were very helpful and gave us great tips of places to visit. We took our bikes and enjoyed the cycle to the artisan boulangerie 5 miles across the valley. A car is a must if you want to travel further afield but if you want tranquilly, comfort and a great view then this is the place for you.

The loveliest taste and the warmest welcome
I stayed at La Grange as I was attending a residential printing course run by Jillian. The house is gorgeous; tastefully and thoughtfully decorated with everything you could need. Fabulous hosts - cannot recommend this highly enough!

Holiday Heaven
This is a great family friendly and property, especially if you just want to spend some time together chilling out. We were visiting to attend a nearby (ish) wedding but were able to have our own little holiday at the same time. Privacy, lots of indoor and outdoor space and peace and quiet in the most stunning surroundings of countryside. The private pool was an unexpected delight as it was extremely clean and safe for the children but lots of fun for us all, with beautiful views. Would visit again and recommend to friends.

Beau séjour à l'alhambra et à la grange !
Beau gîtes dans un endroit très tranquille, idéal pour se retrouver en famille ou entre amis. La piscine et le jardin sont très agréables. Les intérieurs sont joliment décorés bien que rustiques. Un petit coup d'aspirateur aurait été apprécié avant notre arrivée. Les hôtes sont très sympas et discrets malgré leur proximité. Un très bon séjour dans ce gîtes, je recommande !

Merci pour tous vos mots gentils - ce fut un plaisir de vous accueillir tous ici. Nous prenons beaucoup de fierté dans nos gîtes et veillons toujours à ce qu'ils soient parfaitement propres et rangés avant l'arrivée des invités - à cette occasion - je ne peux que supposer que parce que vous étiez l'une des dernières personnes à arriver de votre grand groupe de personnes - inévitablement des débris seront transportés sur les chaussures. bagage etc ... nous fournissons des aspirateurs dans chaque gîte afin que les invités puissent garder les gîtes propres et bien rangés pendant leur séjour. Nous pouvons également fournir des services de nettoyage quotidien par arrangement préalable au taux horaire local .... (que certains clients préfèrent) merci encore :)

An Amazing place
We had a wonderful holiday here! Everything was spot on from the cleanliness of the accommodation to the tranquility of the surroundings. Jillian and Matthew couldn’t have done any more for us to make our experience so enjoyable. A beautiful place that we will return to again and again!

Marvelous!
We don't ever return to places as we like to explore but we loved La Platte so much last year that we returned this year. The Gite is gorgeous, well designed, private, fitted-out beautifully, private, lots of places to relax and just sooo relaxing.........and as for the pool - perfection! Wonderfully quiet and pretty countryside with lots of places to visit, near and far. Our hosts Gillian and Matthew were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, always helpful but left us to our own devices too - perfect balance. If you want peace, quiet, something to do, lovely countryside and a bit of luxury then this is the place to go. The best gite we've stayed in 25 years of travelling to France and the loveliest countryside with genuinely friendly locals.

Thank you for your fantastic review - it was lovely to see you and your lovely family again. We have put a lot of thought into each Gite - to make them as comfortable as possible - whilst attempting to retain all of their intrinsic French character and charm. We love this area ourselves and fell in love with the open and warm people who live here - we feel it is a piece of 'genuine France' - we are so happy we were able to share it with you. It means a lot to us that you enjoyed it... We hope that you will come back in the future. Thanks again, Jill

Wonderful!
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!
