Description from the owner
A UK BBC TV and radio presenter reports of her holidays at La Bergerie 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 . . ."

Additional Location Information
The property is situated at the edge of the beautiful and quintessentially 'French' village of Loupiac. It is in it's own surroundings, beautifully landscaped, tranquil and with views of pastures, valleys and woodland. It is a perfect pastoral setting and ideal for those who want to immerse themselves in the peace and beauty of rural France. It is, however, perfectly located to explore some of the South of France's most spectacular scenery and sites of interest.

What Past Guests Are Saying
A little piece of French heaven
This summer we (family of 4 with 2 young boys) returned to La Bergerie au Bouyssou for the second year in a row, and each time we have been so delighted that we are planning to return again next summer. The property offers absolutely everything one could wish for, and much more, when one wants to spoil themselves on holiday. The pictures do not do the house and surroundings justice, it is so charming it truly has to be seen to be appreciated.
The decor and furnishings are very tasteful, it is spotlessly clean and meticulously maintained, and equipped with everything and anything one would need, especially when travelling with children (toys, books, dvds, baby equipment etc etc). It is worth mentioning that this house is a true 'labour of love' of 3 years by a lovely English family who converted the barn by themselves and who obviously are very proud of what they have achieved, and so they should be! The house has exclusive access to a beautifully maintained and equipped swimming pool, which is a real bonus. There is also a great little playground and a beautiful vegetable garden.
In terms of the surrounding areas, the aveyron and the Lot regions have a lot of activities to offer for old and young alike. The highlights for us this year were taking the kids to accro-Liane (tree climing - yes even for a 2 and 5 year old!), Cahors sightseeing and wine tasting, and candle lit dinners and star gazing outside on the terrasse. Last year we also went to various local markets to buy local produce which we then took back and enjoyed at the house.
The property is situated in a fairly remote rural area and there is a little bit of a drive (10-15 mins) to get to most places, even to purchase fresh pastries in the morning. However, for us, that is just perfect as peace and tranquility is what we are after when taking a break from London.
Last but not least, the family who runs this gorgeous holiday 'gite' are absolutely fantastic hosts and really go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable, including their daughter Millie (9) who loves to play and spend time with children who come to La Bergerie on holiday. They are also an invaluable source of information on things to see and do in the area. A big thumbs up from us - we have stayed in many hotels and self-catered properties with our children - and this is hand on heart one of the best ones out there!

Outstanding! Couldn't have asked for a better escape.
My family, which includes two energetic young boys, had a lovely break at La Bergerie. From the moment we arrived everything we could have needed was already thoughtfully provided. The charming hosts were readily available to answer questions and provide their local insight. The house is every person's dream of rural France filled with comfortable furnishings and luxurious details. The kids were greeted with a plentitude of new toys as well as a full stock of books and Dvds. It was hardly necessary since the outdoor space captivated them from the start. The surrounding area had plenty of day trips to offer but our best times were just filling our arms up with produce at the local markets and returning to enjoy the escape. We opt for self catering when possible and this is by far one of our favorites. In summation: artfully prepared and impeccably maintained.
