About us


Luxury Cottage for self-catering holidays 

 Luxury Self-catering Cottage or Gite

This superb cottage offers you spacious accommodation with the possibility of sleeping up to 6 people. Whilst adjoining the main house it has its own enclosed private garden and private parking space. Inside is designed with your comfort in mind, all linen and towels are provided and included in the price and for those cooler months the cottage is well insulated and centrally heated. Whilst staying in La Platriere Cottage you will be able to enjoy the large outdoor swimming pool, petanque and larger gardens within La Platriere Retreat.


The kitchen with dining area is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay, with washing machine, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, microwave, electric oven, hob and extractor hood. During wet weather guests can use for a small charge the tumble dryer in the main house. The dining area has French doors leading out into the private garden and outdoor furniture and barbeque. Open plan beams lead the way into one of the two sitting rooms where for your entertainment there are TV, video player, music centre, and a selection of books and games.


The other sitting room can double up as a 3rd bedroom as it has a good quality bed-settee. Also downstairs are the bathroom (with small bath, shower, and vanity unit with basin) and separate toilet. A beautiful open-tread oak staircase leads upstairs where there are 2 adjoining bedrooms (one double, one twin-bedded). Both bedrooms have exposed beams and dormer windows look out across the garden to the countryside beyond.

The cottage garden has outdoor furniture, parasol and barbeque. All guests are welcome to enjoy the larger gardens at La Platriere, which include the large swimming pool surrounded by sun terrace where you can laze away hot summer days relaxing on the sun loungers. For the slightly more energetic guests can play boules on the petanque pitch, or maybe a game of croquet. (equipment provided)
