“A quaint, quiet retreat”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We enjoyed a wonderful visit to Monflanquin this summer thanks to the kindness of Jim & Jo. After some unfortunate cancelled flights & horrible holiday traffic, these wonderful hosts stocked our fridge for us so we wouldn't have to worry about rushing to the the market for supplies. The kids loved the pool (so did the adults). It was such a beautiful serene place to spend a week. Thank you!!

“Great accommodation and location”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a lovely time at Gardes, Monflanquin - the gite is beautiful, excellent pool and great facilities. A perfect location too, for relaxing, site-seeing and day trips...I'd recommend this place and love to go back.

“Fantastic Gite in wonderful setting”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I recently stayed at Gite Gardes for a week with my husband, two young children (3 yrs and 1 yr), my mum and my brother. We had such a fantastic stay and have already booked to come again next year. The location is outstanding with great views across the surrounding countryside so you feel secluded without being cut off (the local town, Monflanquin, has many amenities). The Gite is wonderful with loads of outside space and plenty of shady spots for the children to cool off. The swimming pool was perfect as got a huge amount of use, as did the climbing frame and badminton net. Jim and Jo were so friendly and had loads of information about the surrounding area, they were fantastic hosts and were increadbly patient with my boys who wanted to help them clean the pool each morning. I would definitely recommend Gite Gardes as it is a great place to stay.

“"Just perfect in every way"”
Reviewed October 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We are a group of 2 families with 2 8 year olds, a 3 year old and a baby of 3 months, we couldn't have choose a better villa and area.
The villa is extremely spacious, modern, spotless and decked out to a very nigh standard. The 2 kingsize (huge) bedrooms with shared en-suite and a twin room with sofabed were comfortable with all we needed. The cot provided was brand new with linen included too. We were able to make meals for the children in the very well equipped kitchen and had BBQ's most nights as the outside areas with views to Montflanqiun were beautiful.
The pool and the fact it was heated pleased the children and our baby.
Jim & Jo have provided a huge array of toys, games and activities for all ages for inside the house, around the pool and in the extensive gardens
Bergarac, Chateau Biron and Chateau de Monbazillac are a must and not too far to drive.
If you fancy a trip to Duras the castle is beautiful but more so stock up on the wine!! its beautiful and extremely cheap. We bought 25 litre boxes and it worked at £1.30 a bottle!!! The town of Montflanquin is less than a 5 minute drive away and has all you need. The supermarket is well stocked, there are some lovely shops and restaurants and the market a reasonable size. There is a night market on a Thursday in the village square which was our best night out. We went for 6pm to get a table which theres a vast amount of. There were stalls selling all kinds of foods and wines aswell as a band playing which the kids enjoyed. We were paying approx 5 euros a bottle of wine, 5 euros for things from the BBQ stand, 4 euros for freshly made breads and waffles and the duck fat homemade chips are a must!!
A massive thank you to Jim & Jo for making the whole stay just perfect, from enquiry stage to leaving you have been brilliant. We would love to return to Grades and in the mean time I will highly recommend you to all I can.

“Fantastic gite in a fantastic location”
Reviewed October 8, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a lovely week with our young son who loved splashing about in the pool. The gite is beautifully situated in quiet farmland on the side of a hill overlooking the picturesque town. The gite itself is very well equipped and Jo and Jim were very welcoming and had some excellent tips for local places to explore.

“Perfect retreat for a recharge”
Reviewed October 6, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Was the perfect destination for a week of not doing terribly much. Gîte Gardes has been beautifully renovated and is thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing break.

We stayed with three young children who all made good use of the lovely pool (on a daily basis). Us grown ups enjoyed the sunshine, figs from the garden and of course the wine.

Montflanquin is a lovely medieval town just a couple of KMs away, as is the local supermarket where we were able to stock up on provisions.

Jim and Jo have done a wonderful job of making guests feel welcome and not wanting for anything.
