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 . . ."

 "Thank you for a wonderful holiday; we felt that nothing was too much trouble for you. You have made a wonderful place, but it is not just the picture-book location (an unspoiled valley, in a wonderful part of France) and architecture which makes it magical, it is the complete dedication you show to making guests welcome and relaxed. A special place. We hope to see you again.”

The Williams family, Wiltshire

We love your French country home and we have thoroughly loved all of the little French villages, the green fields and beautiful animals.

We had such a wonderful time . . . you made us feel so welcome. Your desert was superb. You had attended to every detail to make us comfortable, thank you . . . you have a precious daughter!

The McBrides and the Cleggs, USA

 “I've been trying to figure out a way I can pack up this entire house and stuff it in my suitcase. It won't fit so I guess I will just have to return and savour every moment of another vacation here at la Bergerie. Absolutely everything is perfect here. The apple tarte was amazing (thank you Sarah!), the kitchen was a dream to work in and I loved my soaking baths in the lovely bathtub. Every detail is so completely appropriate in what you have created here – a perfect holiday home.”

The Schickedanz party, Utah, USA

Words cannot describe the pleasantness of our stay chez Le Bouyssou. The house is so cozy, comfortable and detailed with every possible anticipated need. I'm not sure we've ever been so warmly welcomed at a vacation rental! In fact, staying at Le Bouyssou has been more like visiting friends. We have travelled and rented vacation rental houses quite a few times and this one is by far the nicest ever! We hope to return again to this lovely region and would definitely choose to come here to Le Bouyssou, to this marvelous bergerie and this very special, welcoming family. Thank you for a very special visit!

Cheri and Jim, New Hampshire, USA

"A really fabulous autumn half term break. The house has everything that you could want and more. The care, attention to detail and the level of service exceed anything else that we have ever seen in a holiday home. Our children are already demanding that we return - not that we will need much persuasion! The Halloween party was much appreciated and Isobel and Evie loved playing with Millie. You have achieved something magical here! Many, many thanks to you all."

Sue, Ed and Isobel, Evie and Harry, Cambridgeshire, UK

Another very satisfied customer! You have created a beautiful holiday home for those of us fortunate enough to have found you. Thanks for your discreet company during the week, your advice, cake and vegetables and the loan of your walking stick! We are looking forward to seeing you again.

Sheila and Kevin, Gloucestershire

What a fantastic base to explore this interesting area. We could easily have spent another few weeks here! The house was perfect - everything so thoughtfully done. And Lily had such fun - she was sad to say goodbye to Millie . . . THANK YOU!

Debbie, Travis and Lily, Abu Dhabi

"La Bergerie au Bouyssou is quite simply the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. I decided within five minutes of arriving that we were coming back next year. The setting is stunning, the pool and gardens beautiful and the house exquisite. You have been so kind and all the little extras (fresh vegetables, eggs, the incredible tarte aux pommes, perfume, candles etc.) have made us feel totally spoilt. Will (14 months) has adored the endless supply of toys, the pirate ship, the chickens and the pool and what a joy to only have to bring clothes for him and absolutely nothing else. You have created the most incredible place . . . . an enormous thank you."

Rachel, Robin, Kate and Will, London

Beautiful house and pool, so comfortable and amazing attention to detail. We've enjoyed a really relaxing family holiday and have hardly wanted to leave the home!

Best bits - the veranda/terrace and candle lit dinners, the beautiful pool and watching our baby enjoy the water, the quiet and privacy, the local airfield conveniently close, the fresh eggs and delicious apple tarte.

The worst bit - having to pack the car to go home . . . Thank you from us all.

Kirsty, Andrew, James, Christine and James

This place is wonderful and beautiful - it's a small chunk of paradise that we are all mesmerised by. The attention to detail has made our holiday fabulous and what amazing generosity of spirit (and what amazing vegetables!). It was, quite simply, the best family holiday we have had.
We have loved visiting Cajarc and the market in Villefranche, the Sunday market in Villeneuve, Bar de L'Ete was super for all of the children (5,4 and 2) and we thought all of the hilltop villages are a treat. The daily run to the bakery is a joy. Millie (the owner's daughter) has been a brilliant 'spy master' to our boys. We are so sad to go but we shall return!
