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 . . ."

Read more of her enthusing praise below!

We've had a wonderful week at Le bouyssou - we're not sure where to start!

The barn is immaculate and so beautifully decorated - we feel like we've had such a treat and this, combined with the children being so happy too, is a rare discovery and we hope we can return to have longer here next time.

Sincere thanks for the vegetables and salad, recipes, cake and other goodies, as well as the delicious pizza - a very talented family!

Lastly your generous hosting - Treasure Hunt was brilliant - Morgan was enchanted . . .

We hope to return and create more special memories.

We have enjoyed the most amazing and wonderful 6 days which surpassed all our expectations. The barn is so beautifully furnished, exceptionally clean and well stocked and the hospitality provided by Sarah and family was the icing on the cake.

. . . The children were in awe of the amazing selection of toys, books, jigsaws, play area and loved the treasure hunt and face painting. It made our time here so memorable that we are certain they will not be satisfied with staying anywhere else . . we are therefore certain to return to relive the fantastic time we have experienced at Le bouyssou and continue to explore this wonderful part of France. Until then, all our thanks . . .

Matt, Sally, Freddie and Lucy, Bournemouth

Thank you once again for a wonderful time at a place that we all love so much.

There's something very special about arriving somewhere and immediately feeling at home and relaxed and properly on holiday and that's what you provide here. Along with exceptional hospitality, it remains such a beautiful and welcoming place.

Full credit to you all for everything, from the place itself, the tips on what to do and where to go, the excellent pizzas, all the places to explore here . . . highly recommended - as is the whole of Le bouyssou. 'Til the next time . . .

Coe, Glover/Jones families, London

Wow, wow, wow - how to describe Le bouyssou - relaxation in a physical form - I have never been so relaxed so quickly on holiday, so my family tell me.

The pool is fantastic and the place I spent so much time. Thank you for your hospitality . . . we will be back.

Pat, Cheshire UK

Thank you for your great hospitality which really made this holdaiy better than the rest. The cake and the pizzas were incredible (best I have had). It has been a very relaxing holiday and hope to come back again soon.

Callum, Cheshire UK

One of the best (actually the best) holiday homes we have ever stayed in. Everything has been thought of. I can't thank you enough for your cake, pizzas, tomatoes, etc., the tips on where to go and just making Le bouyssou such a special place.

It has been a relaxing time! Love the Aveyron (and Lot), we will definitely return.

Louise, Cheshire UK

Thank you once again for a really lovely holiday. The sun really did come out for our second visit and we had such a brilliant time. The house was just as lovely as we remembered and we made the most of the amazing pool. It's not often you get to watch butterflies floating around wild flowers whilst you do your lengths!

We also really enjoyed seeing you again and spending some time with you. You are perfect hosts and both times that we have stayed you have made us feel so welcome. The pizza evening this year was a highlight, chatting to you all while looking out at the gorgeous view of the valley and eating your delicious food.

La bergerie is honestly the best self catering accommodation that I have ever stayed in - immaculate, luxurious and comfortable at the same time. I would really recommend it to anyone, it is a stunning place.

Now we are home the girls are asking when they can see Sarah and Millie again. We're already looking forward to next year!

Jude, Mark, Leni and Grace, UK

What a truly exceptional place - well, piece of paradise - you have created here; thank you for sharing it with the lucky ones who have discovered you - we feel blessed to have found you!

Thank you for everything that you have done for us this week, which has helped to make this holiday probably our best ever - from the lemon cake, to the fresh fruit and veg., to the provision of extra baby/toddler stuff (including the 'personalised' books left out!), to the recommendations on places to go and the superb treasure hunt - the highlight of the week!

This is such a beautiful and peaceful part of France there is so much to do and see . . we very much enjoyed our trips to Figeac and Belcastel, both highly recommended and beautiful.

We've had a great time being lazy enjoying the pool and play tents and toys - we've all been in heaven.

Hope to see you again next year - think we'd better get booking quickly. Thank you again.

Annemarie, Peter, Elsie and George

Thank you to Sarah and family!!!

We've had a wonderful time staying here and even though Charley is only 10 months old, he still really enjoyed playing with all of the toys, going on the swing and swimming in the pool.

We also really enjoyed your recommendations of places to visit and thank you for the babysitting which allowed us a couple of lovely nights out, just the two of us. Both of the restaurants were wonderful and the food was to die for!

We can't wait to visit again and bring the family . . . Thank you!!

Duncan, Jenny and Charley, UK

It was wonderful to stay in this place, see the countryside and meet you as hosts and friends.

Le bouyssou is incredibly special.  We are inspired by your family . . . Each one of you made our stay special. Our stay at La Bergerie and l'Aveyron was shaped by you. You guided our stay and our adventures. And with such kindness. Thank you all for sharing your world with us!

A pleasure that will never be forgotten . . . a trip that words cannot explain.
