Exceptional Exclusive Holiday Experience in The South of France

Welcome to Le Bouyssou

In the heart of tranquil 'France profonde' . . .

 Relax, breathe, make some special memories.

La Bergerie is a stone barn conversion situated in the tranquil grounds of Le Bouyssou 1 km from the pretty village of Loupiac and is completely surrounded by fields, woodland and beautiful valley vistas. Step out of the door and walk in any direction for miles and encounter picturesque hamlets, watermills, wooded glades and total peace. 

The property is ideally situated between the delightful 13c bastide town of Villefranche de Rougergue and Figeac (which has been heralded by the British press as 'the finest small town in France') and is the perfect base for a French holiday.

The Aveyron itself can offer its visitors ten of the ‘Most Beautiful Villages in France’, the highest concentration of any department of the country. The landscape is breathtaking and wildly varied (mountains, gorges, rolling ‘causses’, medieval villages, woodland abundant with the fruits of nature which find their way into the regions famous and satisfying cuisine – foie gras, confit de canard, aligot, tripoux...).

The French have an expression, ‘se ressourcer’, which has no equivalent in the English language but refers to an experience which ‘transports one to something authentic and pure and restores one’s physical and spiritual strength’. This term encapsulates the ethos behind the experience that we offer visitors here at La Bergerie au Bouyssou.
