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 so much for sharing your stunning home with us. It has everything we could wish for in a holiday home and more. We think the area is beautiful and we hope to come back and explore it lots more soon. The house offers so much as a place to relax we feel well rested despite the 8 month old! Hope to see you all again soon.
Thank you all so much for a wonderful week in this very special house. We knew that the week would flash by but it still feels too soon to go. There has been so much to entertain us in this home from home. The pool, the garden, the children's toys and all of the beautiful places that we have visited. Our campfire evening with all of you was the most special day for us. We shall treasure that memory and hold dear your attention to detail and thoughtfulness.
The house and setting are stunning but what has made the week even more wonderful has been the warm hospitality and wonderful gifts of food and friendliness of Beris, Sarah and the family. We couldn't think of a nicer place to share our 40th Wedding Anniversary with our family – it has been a real treat.
Thank you for a really wonderful, relaxing holiday. The house is amazingly well equipped for small children, which made our lives so much easier and the girls have adored being here. Lucy's favourite whine at the moment is '”I want this to be my house!”. What more could you want from a holiday home!? Thanks to you all!
When we booked for our 'family-moon' with our three boys following our wedding in May we wanted somewhere special!
Le Bouyssou was most certainly this. The house is amazing, beautifully and sympathetically converted. Our boys felt at home instantly and loved the books, toys and outdoor space. Thank you so much for the special touches for them.
Our holiday met our expectations and more. Thankyou all for your fantastic hospitality, advice and thought. We hope to come back again soon.
This is one of the most wonderful places we know – hence why we are here for the 4th consecutive year. Sarah and family – thank you so much for yet another unforgettable stay! Millie – the boys have enjoyed palying with you in the sandpit and the pool – they adore you! Thank you for making our holiday so special. Hope to see you again next summer!
Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. I don't know if we can say anything more to what has already been said or that we have said before! I do know that we will never forget La Bergerie or all of you. . . . taking into consideration the beautiful building, the interiors, the location, the climate, the things to do, the pretty villages, the huge private pool, all of the facilities especially for the children and the lovely helpful owners, I could not imagine there to be a better place in the whole of the world to take a holiday . . . I do have to make special mention of 'our' beloved Millie – we will all miss you so much! We hope to see you again one day soon!
We've had a lovely week in this truly beautiful house – definitely the best holiday home I've ever stayed in! We loved the interior decoration and the terrace outside is lovely, together with the pool, which was perfect for Emily to have a paddle and splash on the large steps in the corner! We hope to come back again in the years ahead!
Beautiful home from home, perfectly equipped. Gutted by the weather so the covers haven't been off the pool all week! If it had been possible, I'm certain Sarah and her family would have arranged otherwise, as they have been so very thoughtful and generous with time, eggs, toys etc! Austin did enjoy the chickens, guinea pigs and brand new indoor tent, so he definitely had fun. I very much hope that we will return . . .
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 . . .
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.
