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.

Nous (2 adultes et 2 adolescents) avons passé une semaine superbe! L'accueil de Gill et Ben a été à la fois chaleureux et attentionné. La maison entourée de vignes est extrêmement agréable à vivre et décorée avec gout. Nous ne pouvons que la recommander! Mon seul regret est de ne pas être resté assez longtemps pour voir les vignes évoluer au fil des saisons et en discuter avec Ben.

From the moment we arrived Gill and Ben could not have been warmer or provided a better service. They live in the property next door and while they're keen to respect your privacy, we loved it when they occasionally popped round with a couple of cakes from the local baker, figs from their neighbour's fig tree, a bottle of their own vineyard wine (great with cheese!). They made our holiday really special. The house itself is spacious and very well furnished. The photos don't show it but there's a choice of outdoor eating areas - in the sun or in the shade - although the huge kitchen is also a great place to entertain too if it gets cool in the evening. There's also a well stocked wine rack in the kitchen with an honesty box - nice to know you'll never run out of wine! The pool area is a great place to spend a few hours swimming or sitting in the sun overlooking Gill and Ben's vineyard. They've also built a shaded area by the pool with seats, a hammock and huge banana plant - a very relaxing spot. This property is perfect for those looking for a relaxing break away from it all in a beautiful house with an exceptionally high level of service from its owners from the time of booking right through to the day you leave. Absolutely fantastic - thank you Gill and Ben, we'll remember our stay for years to come.

This property has been lovingly restored to a really high standard by the very friendly owners Gill and Ben. The welcome breads, cheese and wines were greatly appreciated and quickly consumed! Everything you could possibly want is available, bikes, ping pong, petanque, badminton, lots of outside seating and loungers, as well as the lovely private pool. We have never stayed in such a well equipped property. The added bonus of the beautiful setting within the vineyard make this a fabulous place to escape and spend a wonderful holiday. We enjoyed touring the area and seeing different vineyards, but particularly enjoyed being shown round the vineyard we were actually staying in - We would love to visit again. Thank you for all your hard work in making our holiday so memorable.

Our experience in France was pleasantly enhanced by Gill and Ben, the owners of this property. In fact, they were the highlight of our vacation. They personally greeted us when we arrived and gave us great ideas and help during our stay. They live on the property caring for their vineyard and winery as well as their guests. We had them over for dinner and learned about their lives and how they came to owning this property and winery, a very fascinating and warm couple. They reciprocated by giving us a tour and winetasting with great appetizers. We ended our stay by going with them on a boat cruise, with more wine, food and music. What a great time! The house was fully furnished with everything we needed to enjoy our stay and cook some meals. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and quiet. The location was easy to find if you followed Gill's direction, and not GPS. The pool area was a bonus and we spent most evenings enjoying wine and appetizers by the pool. The location was great for the Bordeaux area, Bordeaux was less than 30 minutes away. We toured from Cape Ferret thru Saint Emilion. But we were in the beautiful vineyard countryside and not in a city.

La Grande Etouble is a little peace of heaven in the middle of vineyards. Ben and Gill are the most thoughtful, kind and discrete hosts. We had a charming wine tour & tasting with our family. Everything is there to enjoy the holidays, badminton, tabletennis, petanque, the pool off course and different locations to have breakfast, lunch, aperitif or dinner. The plancha is ideal to grill fish, gamba’s, burgers and vegetables. The vine cellar(with honesty box)in the kitchen gives you an enormously privilaged feeling. And that is exactly the feeling we had during our stay, a sense of privilege. We had days we golden linings at La Grand Etouble. Thank you so much Ben and Gill. We wish you all the best and hope to come back soon!
