BFB's Overview

For toddlers and older siblings ‘Pagel’ has a magical quality, like an enchanted forest, the five acres of beautiful grounds hide a new adventure around every corner from a huge wooden replica pirate ship and fort, to trains, go-karts and tractors. For parents this means entertaining the brood is a breeze and as a result, relaxation comes easily. When not sneaking off to play pirates, most sit on their private terraces or lounge by the pool happily watching their offspring make new friends. Those with babies tend to gravitate to the specially created shaded play area and kiddie pool. In fact, the huge range of toys and equipment provided (see 'Fast Facts' on the right for more details) is so comprehensive it would be a challenge to find anything missing.

Accommodation is set in beautiful stone buildings-The Grange, which has been converted into four self-contained gites, each with three bedrooms. Beside The Grange made of old Quercy stone house is the Winegrowers House and is the largest of the 3 bed gites with 170 sq m. Below is Wisteria a special 2 bed hideaway on the ground floor of The Winegrowers House. Each of the 3-bedroom gites has a private terrace with rural views (spectacular sunsets from some) and all properties have interiors which blend comfort and practicality with rustic beauty thanks to their mix of original features and pretty wooden furnishings.

Accommodation Overview:
Lower Sunset
is south facing with a ground floor terrace, and with it’s open plan living area, with no stairs, makes it ideal for crawlers/toddlers. Like the others at Pagel, this gite is furnished well and in a traditional style, simple and safe.
It’s at the west end of the building and so looks out onto the courtyard area to the adult seating place and the playbarn so you can sit on your terrace and supervise the children playing in the barn or outside on the ride on toys.
The total living space is 65 square metres including 2 double bedrooms (1 with kingsize bed, 1set as a twin with 2 singles), a single bedroom, bathroom (bath and shower attachment) and well-equipped kitchen complete with fridge, dishwasher, microwave and toaster, along with the usual facilities (there's a communal laundry on site). There's a private, south-facing terrace with furniture.

Location Information

Most families find it hard to leave Pagel itself, with so much available onsite. But for those who manage it, there’s a host of attractions within an hours drive including the lovely open-air museum at Quercy and the African Safari Park near Toulouse. The Medieval city of Cahors with its famously beautiful bridge and great gourmet shopping in its warren of cobbled streets. Recommended regional specialities include truffles, confit de canard, goat’s cheese and the dark local wine.

Who owns this place?

Mark and Lara Bishop had a dream in 2002 to create a special place for families to holiday at where everything you would need practically was there ,taking away all the stress of travelling with everything you would normally have at home ..." a home from home"
Having two children themselves at the time Benjamin aged 6 and Charlie aged 2.5 they had a good idea as to what toys and play equipment was loved by children.There was a dream to create a special place for imaginative play and running free, and so Pagel was born.
Lara had a background in sales and marketing and Mark was an account manager but with a skill set in building and DIY hence the perfect partnership was formed .
Their dream became a reality when after six months of searching they found Pagel nestled on a hillside in the Lot South West France.

Although no longer living onsite, Pagel is still managed by the Bishops from the UK and with Fiona, Carole, Sarah, Steve and Mea our fabulous English speaking team living locally to Pagel the family friendly experience and magic of Pagel lives on.

What do they love about it?

Safe play, running free, imaginative play areas, piarate ship and Indian village, dressing up clothes and arts and crafts, a heated pool and toddler pool and saltwater to protect little ones, like minded families on site for evening glasses of wine and a chef for the night service for that special night in, weekly family bbq, children's tea service and Cook food on site allows you all the freedom of self catering with options for treating yourselves on holiday by having food provided when you would like it . Fantastic views, peace and quiet, time together, time to play, time to relax, memories to make ...........holiday memories of time together as a family in a very special place never forgotten.

What do the kids love about it?

Wow the pirate ship with dad at the helm, the indian village with the real totem pole and wooden Indian chief, dressing up as someone different every day and running free in the meadow with wild flowers and butterflies.The heated pool and toddler pool for hours of fun, pool toys and play equipment everywhere, climbing and swinging, sliding and bouncing on the trampoline, my own toy box in my gite and my special Pagel present when I arrive, the play barn with soft play and arts and crafts and riding all day on little tractors and trikes.The lizards and birds and deer in the lower field and playing with my holiday friends every day, so much to do and so many places to go to near to Pagel like the Monkey Park, Water Park and castles.

  • We returned on Saturday from an absolutely amazing holiday at Pagel, France. Our two little boys (3 years & 6 months) had such a wonderful time & so did we parents :-) It truly is a magical setting & Lara & Mark Bishop couldn't have been more helpful. They were so wonderful. I would highly recommend Pagel to anyone with a young family.Review dated 26/09/2012

  • We were fortunate enough to get a late booking through this website, and it was a wonderful break. The hosts couldn't have been friendlier, and every last detail had been thought of. The new chlorine free pool was blissful, and our accommodation was clean, well furnished and very comfortable. Excellent selection of ride-on toys, slides, playhouses etc meant our toddler couldn't believe her luck, and we couldn't either. Beautiful location in stunning landscape, wonderful markets and restaurants nearby for child-friendly leisurely lunches - hard to imagine in the UK. We will definitely return.Review dated 03/11/2009

  • We were lucky enough to enquire about a holiday at Pagel just as a two week long cancellation had come up, in fact lucky doesn't go far enough to describe it, as this place is so great it gets booked up well in advance. Having been there I can now understand why. Mark and Lara have really built a paradise for both kids and adults, suitable for all ages. Sometimes it's tough to persuade the kids that we really should leave and explore the surrounding Lot and Dordogne valleys. There are enough play barns, slides, swings, trampolines and of course the pool, pirate ship and electric jeeps that the kids can go off, make friends and really benefit from a feeling of independence in the fully secluded, safe and fenced grounds of Pagel, and this gives the adults time to do a little "relationship building" (in either red, white or rose flavours) of their own. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and am not at all surprised at their level o ...Review dated 03/11/2009

  • This is a great holiday, especially as the children are so well provided for with plenty of toys, games etc. Tanya and Gerry are kind and welcoming hosts and the setting is idyllic. The gites are lovely but not luxury. We look forward to coming back next year.Review dated 03/11/2009
