Why this location? The region is one of the most beautiful places in France, the land of d’Artagnan and ‘The Three Musketeers’.

Sitting in an elevated position facing south over looking the beautiful rolling hills of the department know as the Gers bordering Lot et Garonne and Landes.
Peaceful Rural Location Very Close To Local Villages And Market Towns. La Platte is set in 2.5 hectors of park land backing onto the regional national park of the Gers. Market towns of Gabarret, Eauze, Mezin and Condom are within easy reach. Enjoy good food, fine wine and Armagnac.

We had a great time at La Grange. This was one of those rare times that, on arrival, the property was better than the pictures on the website. The main rooms is massive and the pool is in a beautiful setting, and wonderfully kept.

Matthew and Jillian were very attentive, offering some real insight into the local area and where to go for what. Despite being remote, the wifi is good, and Matthew has set things up so their are films to see, and a way to stream music directly to the hifi.

We will definitely be staying again.
