Client Testimonials

Comments that our guests have been kind enough to make about Le Bouyssou.

Fi Glover a UK BBC TV and Radio presenter, has been so 'mesmerised' by La Bergerie au Bouyssou that she reports on her holidays here in her column in a UK national magazine:

"Perched high above the lush valleys of the Lot river lies Le Bouyssou, a gite so lovely that I almost don't want to tell you about it.

"The hilltop breeze charms the surface of the pool, the verbenas sway, a swallowtail butterfly wafts through. Everyone relaxes. We have visited with the same friends both years and one of the daily highlights is to eat on the terrace after the kids have gone to bed, looking at the starry, starry night and talking . . ."

What an incredible two weeks in a rural retreat beyond perfect.

As soon as we entered the house we felt at home. Not only is it beautifully equipped, lovely to look at but it has a sense of home from home that immediately makes you comfortable.

Every attention to detail has been considered, from lovely soaps, toiletries and bath robes as well as the cleanliness and pretty furnishings.

The area is a pleasure to explore and find gorgeous medieval villages steeped in charm and the incredible views of hills, rocks and rivers along the winding roads are simply breathtaking.

All this said it is Sarah and her wonderful family that makes this place truly special from the home made treats, to their warmth and totally welcoming nature. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know each and every one of you. Be proud of your achievement.

A second very enjoyable stay! We have been thoroughly spoilt by Sarah and the family and have been supplied with delicious home-made treats and vegetables. We have felt very relaxed and contented in such a peaceful and comfortable place. See you again next year!

What a brilliant week we have had at Le bouyssou. Beautiful house, lovely gardens and superb peaceful setting. The kids have absolutely loved the outdoor facilities (pirate ship, wagon, swings, the list goes on . . .). The salt water pool is a real treat.

We really appreciated all of the fresh vegetables (best tomatoes we have ever tasted), fruits and cake of course and the children loved going to get the eggs.

Overall, an extremely special holiday house, which is head and shoulders above any others we have stayed in - a beaut!

We especially appreciated the little touches and thoughfulness of the hosts. We are already thinking about how to return!

Another fantastic year at Le Bouyssou . . . thank you so much to all of you for making this such a brilliant week all of the extra touches were greatly appreciated - thank you. See you next time!

Annemarie, Peter, Elsie and George

Thank you for such a wonderful holiday! This is a wonderful home from home and your thoughtfulness made travelling with a toddler so much easier! All the toys, baby quipment and shopping service meant that you packing was light than it would have been otherwise.

All of the extra touches made it particularly special - the home made cooked food was delicious, thank you! Pippa loved it here: spotting birds and lizards, splashing in the pool and playing in the sandpit. We will definitely recommend it to friends and we will come back soon! Thank you.

James, Natalie and Pippa

We have had a very enjoyable two weeks. La bergerie at Le bouyssou is extremely comfortable and very well equipped. Thank you for keeping us supplied with fresh garden produce and other treats. Until next year . . .

Peter and Nikki

Every year we think that we have had the very best time and then we come back the next year and it is even better!

I know that in this Visitors Book and previous ones - the word lovely is used a lot but I am going to get some more mileage out of it here: you are all lovely, Le bouyssou is lovely, the Lot area is lovely and the kids could not think Millie any lovelier!

Until next Summer we all wish you well. What a truly special place you have created!


Echoing the above, many thanks for another wonderful stay. So good to arrive somewhere that immediately feels like home, only a much nicer home and with much better weather! Sorry to leave, until the next time . . .

Glover Jones and Coe families

Another wonderful holiday, thank you so much for your company, hospitality and such care to make everything perfect. Thank you to Millie for being so kind with the girls - they are so sad to be saying goodbye to her. Lovely time, loved seeing you again . . . 

Jude, Mark, Leni and Grace

Thank you so uch for a fantastic week staying at your beautiful barn.

W had no idea that a place like this existed!

Your hard work and dedication certainly shows in all of the little touches - the beautiful interior, fantastic play area and lovely swimming pool made our holiday so special and your warm welcome and generous hospitality throughout the week were amazing.

Thank you for the yummy pizza, best cake we have ever had, the dips and to Beris for the chucky eggs for Lily!

Lily has had so much fun just exploring the garden and taking her pick of the many toys available. She loved saying good morning to Kaley the bunny each morning.

Lastly we thank you for making our first holiday abroad with our toddler so easy. Everything that we could possibly need was here. We hope to return to Le bouyssou in the not too distant future!

David, Jodie and Lily
