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.

My first visit to France did not disappoint
Just spent 5 days in this beautiful gite. The gite itself is spotless and is fully equipped with everything you need. Jan and Graham are amazing hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Welcome pack is full of recommendations of places to visit and great restaurants. The grounds are gated and private and beautiful. Cannot wait to return.

Beautiful Gite in a perfect location
Beautiful Gite in a perfect location, just a very short walk into Aulnay, where there are 3 bars / restaurants in the square and one on the edge of the town. There is a supermarket 1 kilometre away, which is excellent if you prefer to self cater whilst staying in the Gite. The accommodation was spotless and had everything we needed, the bedding was really luxurious too 😊. Jan and Graham (& Luna the pooch) made us extremely welcome during our stay and we will definitely keep in touch. The garden is beautiful and has some lovely furniture to either dine al fresco or just relax. We would highly recommend this beautiful Gite ❤️

An Excellent gite.
We are just back from a week staying in this beautiful property. It had everything we needed and was a great location to explore the local area. The large garden was perfect for relaxing. It is only a few minutes walk to the local village with shops, bars and restaurants as well as a great market. Our hosts Jan and Graham were so welcoming and shared their tips for places to visit. We had a wonderful time and I would definitely recommend. Having stayed in many similar properties, this one really is outstanding, tastefully and beautifully decorated and in such a good location. I really hope to be able to return in the future.

Charmante Maison Charentaise et parc arboré au coeur d'Aulnay
L’endroit parfait où j’ai eu la chance d'héberger quelques semaines pour mission professionnelle. Un lieu très calme rythmé par le chant des oiseaux au milieu du parc de la maison , et des commerces à 2 minutes à pieds. Petit déjeuner servi sur demande, Excellent accueil par le charmant couple de propriétaires. Je recommande vivement

Lovely modern gite hosted by a lovely couple
Having visited Aulnay we decided to get a drink at a local bar prior to planning the next leg of an impromptu road tip. Luckily we sat down and soon got talking to Graham and Jan who were also taking in the afternoon sun at the local PMU. After a short while we discovered that they had both moved into Aulnay to retire albeit renovating their forever home that was not far away from the centre of the village. As part of this project they told us about a gite that they had renovated and asked if we would like to take a look prior to to moving on. Given their honest and friendly demeanour we decided to give it a look. We were pleased that we did. The gite was modern, very clean and well equipped to provide a comfortable stay. This, all at a price that made it well worth the while. Graham and Jan thankyou for being such good hosts on our roadtrip. I would recommend you both to anyone passing through Aulnay that is looking for a place to rest their heads for a few nights in a warm and friendly environment. No photos placed on this review as they have been covered extremely well by the owners.

Lovely comfortable accommodation
Me and my husband stayed here for a week last year while we were having work done in our holiday home. The accommodation was perfect. The gite has been renovated to a very high standard and has everything you could possibly need. The hosts, Jan and Graham were extremely friendly and accommodating. Although they live in the main house they were very discrete. The gite is ideally situated just off the market square where you can find bars, a convenience store, patisserie, cash machines and more. Our favourite bits included the weekly Sunday market, the freshly baked pastries and cakes in the patisserie and our favourite bar had to be Le Relais D’Aulnay which is a short walk away. We would have no hesitation in recommending the gite to our friends and family.

Wonderful accommodation
Me and my husband stayed here last year, the accommodation is lovely, newly renovated to a high standard with everything that you could need. It has a fully equipped living space, dining area for 4 and a kitchen, so if you want to cater yourself you can. Alternatively if you want to go out without having to drive there a lovely bars and restaurants in the village only a few minutes walk away. It's location is good for days to various locations it also has a supermarket just 5 minutes drive away. So anything you should need is easily accessible. The hosts Jan and Graham who live in the main house are very friendly and will do anything they can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I can highly recommend a stay here.
