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, Sarah and family, for the opportunity to share your rural idyll for a week. We've enjoyed every minute of our stay at Le Bouyssou and will be sad to leave. La Bergerie and the gardens are of course amazing but we've been particularly touched by your thoughtfulness and generosity. From your suggestions of places to visit, to the festive Christmas tree and Advent calendar, to the fantastic range of toys for Thomas to play with . . . the list is endless. We hope to return . . .

I must say that what we found at La Bergerie far exceeded our expectations.  The pictures on the website show a beautiful vacation spot, however, they just don’t do justice nor encompass the ambiance created both in and around the property.  The renovated sheep barn (yes, you get to stay where sheep once resided) has been magically turned into a very beautiful vacation house and truly feels like a “home away from home”.  

 If you are fortunate enough to stay here, I highly recommend you try some of the suggestions on “things to do” left by the hosts.  As some days were quite warm, it was a delight to cool down with a “dip” at the end of our day.  There is so much to see and do in this area, that we will definitely return….and we hope to be fortunate enough to stay, once again, at La Bergerie.  Our heart-felt thanks to Sarah and her family for their contribution to our wonderful holiday experience.

Absolutely superb in every way! Loved everything about the Villa, the French countryside and our hosts! Sarah has thought of every detail. It is simply superb. I would have quite happily just moved in. Sarah and her family were fabulous. They did everything they could to make our stay an enjoyable one. Nothing was too hard. As a foodie I especially loved all the local markets. From New Zealand our French was not that great but we had lots of fun making our selves understood. The locals were very patient with us. It had been on my bucket list to rent a Villa in France. I can say without reservation that it was the best holiday ever. A huge thanks to you all! Hopefully one day we will be back.

A special holiday, in a special place with special friends. Thank you so much for your kindness and hospitality. After a summer long sabbatical travelling the world what better end than to stay in our favourite place on the planet with good friends who now very much include the hosts. We have had a brilliant two weeks again – can't wait to return again with friends next year and share the magic.

We would like to say a HUGE thank you for making this a very special holiday in France. The house is beautiful and you have though of every last detail; we wanted to stay longer than our two weeks . . . . Millie was a God send. Thank you Millie for being such a good friend to Isabella and for patience with mischevious Theo! This will be a holiday to remember, in fact the most relaxing, enjoyable time that we have spent as a family ever . . . Thanks again and see you next year.

Liz, Bradley and children, Bedfordshire, August 2012

Had a fantastic week here- very relaxing, wonderful scenery and a fantastic pool! House is beautiful and is very well equipped with everything that you could need. This is a truly beautiful part of France. . . . and thank you to Millie for being a lovely friend for the week!

Genaya, Jonathan and girls, Suffolk, July 2012


Wow! I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said! What a fabulous place – the ultimate in 'Gite chic'! So comfortable, well, equipped, sparkling clean and every detail thought of. And such kind and generous hosts – thank you so much for the veg. and the cake YUM! Until next year we hope, a bientot!

Penny, Philip and family, Surrey, July 2012

We returned for the third year running and we've had a fabulous week. The house and outside areas are as pristine and fab as the first year we came. There really is no limit to what you will do to ensure guests have that 'wow' holiday and it is incredible to have that eye and attention to detail. Thank you all and especially to Millie from the boys for making this such an outstanding holiday. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Stephanie, Tobias and boys, UK, 2012


Thank you so much for the wonderful holiday. This was the best holiday that we have had! Everything we have needed is here. Relaxation, peacefulness, good food, good wine, things which keep the children busy (maybe the most important!!). We were so touched by your hospitality – all products from your veg. garden were eaten so quickly! The girls were so excited having fresh eggs that they had collected!! They had a fantastic time with Millie and every day they could not wait to play with her. I think that the beautiful afternoon with the sushi making and party, the treasure hunt and arm painting will stay in their minds forever. Many thanks for this beautiful holiday again. We hope to come back here next year!!

Noriko, David and girls, UK, July 2012

Thank you so much for a truly lovely holiday in your gooorgeous home. You really have created a beautiful place here – the house is stunning, theswimming pool perfect, the setting stunning and you have been fantastic hosts. You have made this place so child friendly – with all the great toys (both indoor and outdoor), the lovely pool (so nice that it is chemical free) – which in turn lends itself to a relaxing holiday for the adults. A really big thank you also for all of the delicious salad, beans and eggs – such a treat to have fresh food.

Tonight whilst getting ready to go home our 3 and a half year old Sophia said "Mummy, why are you packing?" to which I replied "We are going home tomorrow" and Sophia said "Can we come here the next day?"! Sophia and George have had a great time. We hope to return soon. Many, many thanks.
