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 . . ."

Back for the second year and what a great week it has been! This house is still as gorgeous as we remembered last year and it is with great pleasure and anticipation that we plan to return again next summer. Thank you all for making this holiday so special. We will keep recommending your home to friends - although perhaps selfishly we should keep it a secret . . .
We have had a wonderful 2 weeks here at La Bergerie. Everyone of us is thankful for our wonderful hosts and the girls are in love with Millie! They will miss her greatly.
The pool was enjoyed by all and the girls have enjoyed choosing which pool toy to use.
The house is equipped with everything one could need or want and has been decorated with such taste - it's really perfect. Thank you all for a memorable, relaxing and fulfilling 2 weeks
"Thank you all and especially Millie for making this holiday so special. Your kindness and efforts to please will never be forgotten. We have been so blessed to stay at Le Bouyssou: a haven of good taste and luxury within and natural beauties outside. We sincerely hope to return to a place that has a special place in our hearts."
"This place beats everywhere we've stayed previously (in 25 years plus) by a mile and then some. We all loved our stay and plan to return. A wonderful part of France but one that made our friends ask - where? (that makes it even better!). Sarah, Beris and family so friendly and helpful, every need anticipated, on a rating of 5 stars it clearly scores 6!
Such high levels of interior decoration, equipment and comfort do not normally come with a really child friendly environment, except at La Bergerie au Bouyssou. Here, those polar opposites work perfectly.”
We've had a truly lovely stay in 'La Bergerie. I think it has all been said before but what a wonderful place! Such attention to detail (which makes everything run smothely and with some style). We would love to come again. Thank you so much.
Back again this year for another wonderful holiday . . .
"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.”
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!
“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.”
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!
