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 . . ."

We've had a really magical three weeks here.

Thanks for all of the wonderful touches that have made it so special.

The house and location are outstanding and the warmth and generosity of our welcome was so nice.

The boys loved the garden and the treasure hunt. I really don't think that we could have had a better time.

The Bowsher Family

Thank you for creating a fantastic holiday retreat. You have thought of everything anyone could possibly ever need or desire! It was lovely to know you were always there if we needed help or advice (or cake!). 
The kids have been wonderfully happy and always engaged in something. Our 2 year old was fascinated by watching the field opposite the house changing from tall eaves of corn through to bales of straw over the course of the 2 weeks . . .
. . . Some of our best memories are of the lovely walks along the river, seeing the mills and collecting wild plums and blackberries, as well as the amazing clear skies and sounds of the night.
A special thank you from us all for the treasure hunt and face painting . . .
. . . Hope to be back at some point in the future. Thanks again for creating a wonderful place. You've done an amazing job!

Tumelty family


We won't forget the kids' sheer delight at being greeted by the baskets of toys as they entered the house . . . and they hadn't even seen the pirate ship or teepee! Or met Lulu's new best friend in the entire world – the amazing Millie!!


We have been so inspired by the wonderful home that you have created – and it really is a home not just a house . . . Thank you for your generosity . . . and we can't go any further without mentioning Millie – you have been a fantastically fun and patient friend to the kids. Congratulations to you all for creating such a beautiful space and thank you for sharing it with us. Love from us all.

Hovell family and friends


The bad pennies returned and as Arnie once said “we'll be back” . . . our fourth visit and you never disappoint! . . . Thank you all again for a fantastic holiday and your wonderful hospitality.

Camm family

A truly wonderful week. Blue skies, warm lazy evenings . . . the children hardly left the pool. The house is so beautiful it makes you want to cry. I actually did. Everything you could want for and so much more. Thank you.

The Tait Family, August

Thank you for a very special holiday. Your warm welcome, attention to every detail and frequent generous gifts have made our holiday feel very different and we really appreciated your thoughtfulness. The girls have loved it and have thrived on your company, which you have been so generous with.

The barn is beautiful and comfortable in equal measure and we have loved the pool. We've also found everyone we've met to be extremely warm and friendly.

It's clear that as a family you have invested so much in this and you have created a place where other families can have a very special time. Thank you. Already plannning our return . . .

The Williams family, Surrey UK

Thank you so much for an amazing two weeks. We have had so much fun and lots of laughs along the way. We are going home today with so many special memories of the beautiful barn, amazing pool and lovely area.

You have looked after us perfectly and your level of taking care of your guests is impressive from start to finish. We are very sad to be leaving but going home with very special memories. We will be returning next year.

The Vardy family, Cheshire UK

We have had such a fantastic week exploring the Aveyron and playing in the garden! The boys have been so happy playing with all of the toys and clambering on the Pirate Ship, peeking at the guinea pigs and running around with water pistols. We have been equally happy pottering around the barn, enjoying a glass of wine on the terrace, admiring the scenery and running around with water pistols! Such a lovely spot and great memories. Thanks!

The Brown family

We have had the most wonderful break at your beautiful house. We were blessed with amazing weather which has made our Spring break feel like a Summer holiday.

Needless to say it wasn't just the weather that made this the perfect break. You have done everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. Alexander has loved playing with all of the toys and your attention to detail for each individual child's age and gender is remarkable.

We have been overwhelmed by your friendliness and generosity . . . and for the home made and home grown goodies.

Your hard work to make this a very special place has really paid off. We would love to come back one day. Thank you again.

The O'Neill family, London, UK

Many, many thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us . . . for making us feel at home . . . and for all of the yummy treats in the 'Welcome Basket' . . lovely fresh eggs too!

Our week here in the Aveyron has been fantastic. This house, region, ambiance, views, food and drink have been glorious - truly medicine for the soul.
