BFB's Overview

Families do not seem to be able to find enough superlatives to describe the fabulous times had at La Bergerie. 'Perfect', 'a Narnia for the children' and 'best family holiday ever' have been claimed by many, as cars pull away on the last day with sad faces and vows to return. Returning guest, Fi Glover (BBC Radio 4) summed it up recently when she wrote: "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. A lot."

La Bergerie is an elegant stone barn conversion set in the tranquil grounds of 'Le Bouyssou', which is the British owner's country house estate. It has been restored with great care and combines original features with a stylish mix of contemporary and traditional furnishings, plus all the mod cons required for a relaxing break 'en famille', along with a useful list of baby and toddler gear (see grey box below). It is available year-round either as exclusive rental or, during winter, by the room as a B&B.


It is impossible not to relax here, with its wonderfully rural and scenic setting amongst woodland and fields with lovely valley views. When you have managed to roll out of your luxurious linen clad bed and change out of your fluffy robe to take on a day of R and R, simply step out of the door and walk in any direction for miles and encounter picturesque hamlets, watermills, wooded glades and total peace. Or discover 10 of France's, officially designated, most beautiful towns, all within an easy drive.



Le Bergerie offers spacious, high quality accommodation, with beautiful interiors, private terraces and gardens with a large natural salt water system swimming pool (alarmed). It sleeps six (+ infants, although an extra child bed is possible outside of high season, on request) in three romantic bedrooms, two of which have glamorous antique king-size double beds and the third has pretty twins (can be converted to a super-king double). The two doubles, one with private decked terrace, boast ensuite shower rooms, whilst the third has use of the lovely main bathroom with its indulgent free standing roll top bath. Downstairs, the pretty French country-style kitchen boasts a range cooker, washing machine, tumble dryer, dish washer, large fridge freezer, coffee machine, toaster and all the equipment guests would expect and indeed dream of needing. A stable door from the kitchen leads to the dining room with an oak top table to seat eight comfortably, plus a CD player with a selection of CDs. A step from the dining room leads to the sitting room where guests find comfortable sofas, TV with UK satellite channels, DVD player with a selection of DVD's, a wood burning stove for cosy evenings during the cooler months and a desk with books, maps and guides. French windows lead out to a large covered external terrace with an impressively sized oak table, wicker rattan style chairs with comfy cushions and lots of candles for romantic evening dining whilst gazing at the canopy of stars.


Parties with more than on?e infant or an additional child may be able to be accommodated outside of peak season on request. Please email help@babyfriendlyboltholes.co.uk for more information.



La Bergerie has its own private garden, large covered sun terrace, covered canopy on the upper level and a BBQ Area. The gardens and grounds to Le Bouyssou are extensive with a lawn area for games which is often the venue for parties, face painting and treasure hunts much to the delight of little (and bigger!) ones. There is also a slide, swings, wooden pirate ship, sand pit, giant chalk board, mini Indian reservation area and a tournament size medieval play tent with themed games and costumes. Hunt out the ‘secret garden' with perfect shade for a private reading moment. Guests can choose to sit in the sun or shade by the pool, languishing under the hand made wooden pergolas and sun canopies. The vegetable garden often provides an abundance of organically grown fruit and vegetables for 'cheffy' guests to cook up a storm and the chickens might oblige with a few eggs! Plus with a passion for the authentic, the owners have recently built a wood burning oven in their courtyard which means that guests do not have to walk far for a delicious pizza take out and no moped required for delivery!

Location Information

La Bergerie is ideally situated between delightful 13c bastide town of Villefranche de Rougergue and Figeac, regarded as ‘the finest small town in France’.The Aveyron region is home to ten of the officially designated ‘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...).

Market days at Villefranche and Figeac are not to be missed and the former has a handy tourist train from the main square offering an overview of the town's sights and history. The pretty land train is understandably popular with toddlers and young children. A little further afield, the charming town of St Antonin Noble Val was the setting for the film 'Charlotte Grey' and is crammed with pretty shops and bistros. It also offers canoeing and boating on the river.

Friendly British owner, Sarah, provides a handy guide to local attractions and restaurants in the welcome pack but is also on hand, if and when required for further advice or assistance.

Who owns this place?

I remember all too well what it was like to holiday with our baby daughter. Although we were always desperately looking forward to a relaxing break, we often found that it was more stressful than being at home as we missed all of the equipment and conveniences associated with caring for and entertaining little one! We also found it difficult to find somewhere 'lovely' and 'stylish' to stay and usually returned home disappointed. Apart from a passion for all things French, this is why we decided to move ourselves (Sarah, David, daughter Millie and 'Nannna' and 'Pops'!) to the Aveyron to create La Bergerie au Bouyssou to give others the 'rural, peaceful' holiday that we dreamed of and others deserve.

What do they love about it?

You will discover in the Aveyron department, as we did, one of the most stunning and interesting parts of France. It has been said about our department in the press that 'this is France as she is meant to be – undiluted, unadulterated and unapologetic. It is as if every site, every sound, every flavour of the nation's culture has been distilled and matured here to produce a simmering cauldron overflowing with the true essence of France'. We believe that we have created at La Bergerie the perfect base from which to explore the area, that's if you can tear yourselves away from the sumptuous accommodation with king size beds (and lots of bathroom facilities), a private pool which doesn't sting eyes and bleach costumes, perfect areas of sun and shade, privacy and quiet (apart from the yelps and screams of joy of little guests!) and the exceptional facilities and equiment for kids. The generous welcome basket , the very 'welcome' treat of home baking and bottle of something waiting for you on arrival will make you glad that you came to find out about our French gem.

What do the kids love about it?

Our smaller guests find it hard to leave. It's a paradise here for children, as we know exactly what it takes to provide for them the facilities and entertainment to give them a great holiday (and if they're having a great holiday, Mom, Dad and all are having the 'delightful' break that they were hoping for too!). From feeding the 'ladies' (Millie's chickens) providing the daily chucky egg, the rabbit 'Kaley Boo', the large wooden pirate ship play centre (hand built by Millie's 'Pops', the sandpit, sprawling playframe with swings,slides and play den, the games hut with shop, the 'Reservation ares' complete with wigwam, totem, camp fire and wooden settlers wagon, treasure hunts, face painting, outdoor games, teddy bear picnics to the large natural saltwater system swimming pool with a multitude of inflatables - these are a few reasons why kids love it here!

The care, attention to detail and the level of service exceed anything else that we have ever seen in a holiday home.

The attention to detail has made our holiday fabulous and what amazing generosity of spirit (and what amazing vegetables!). It was, quite simply, the best family holiday we have had. We have loved visiting Cajarc and the market in Villefranche, the Sunday market in Villeneuve, Bar de L'Ete was super for all of the children (5,4 and 2) and we thought all of the hilltop villages are a treat. The daily run to the bakery is a joy. Millie (the owner's daughter) has been a brilliant 'spy master' to our boys. We are so sad to go but we shall return!Review dated 09/09/2010
