We had a wonderful autumn-late summer week with our family. We and our (adult) children and supporters really enjoyed this spacious and cozy, and very clean house! Our dog was also happy with the spacious and enclosed garden! We swam a lot in the nice swimming pool, which was also very nice in the evening with the lighting at the pool.

(10-2023) Good evening Lydia,
Tomorrow morning we leave Souillac again. It was fantastic here again. Thanks again for all the good care and we will soon make plans for next year.
Have a nice evening.

(09-2023 Dear Lydia,
We had a wonderful holiday in your beautiful house. Enjoyed the area and also went out a lot to see the area. As for your house, it is cozy, spacious and has a beautiful location with a great view. In short, another very successful holiday.
Yours sincerely,

(08-2023) Dear Thijs,
We enjoyed your beautiful villa Bouyssonnet. I don't rule out coming back again.

(07-2023) Dear,
It was a nice holiday in the spacious house. The air conditioning is a real plus for sleeping. A quiet location with a beautiful enclosed garden and nice swimming pool. The grass was nicely mowed. We were able to eat outside at the table every day.

Sometimes you have those holidays with a golden edge. This was definitely one of them! We spent a week here with our children aged 17 and 18. Our German Shepherd was also with us! The house feels very welcome and is stylishly decorated. Since it was 28 degrees, we enjoyed the pool. Get fresh sandwiches every morning at the golf! Top!

We were here for 3 weeks and had a wonderful time. It really is a nice house. Except for the creaking floorboards, which took some getting used to. We had reasonably good weather for 3 weeks and on cloudy days we went away for a day. Seen a lot, beautiful surroundings. It is wonderfully quiet here. We enjoyed!

We also enjoyed the house and the surroundings. The house offered comfort and space. The area was so wonderfully quiet. This is how a person can relax. It was nice that our dog was allowed to come along, she also had a good time. Enjoy swimming in the rivers and lakes nearby. The pool was for us. We have already passed the house on to friends of ours. What was also great was the super fast service from Sonia and her husband. When we had questions, there was immediate action. A golden couple. A great thank you for Sonie et le Marie.

(05-2023) Dear Lydia and Thijs,
We enjoyed our 2 week stay in your beautiful house and the lovely garden for our dogs where they could run and play to their heart's content. Unfortunately, the weather was not good and we were therefore unable to use the swimming pool much. Beautiful surroundings and many trips to nice places in the area. We had a wonderful time and we definitely want to come back again.
Thank you and warm regards,
Marco and Danielle

Our week in your house is already over. We really enjoyed the space and the pool. Spotted the deer in the morning. But we also came across a hoopoe (bird) and a beaver (rat) on our walking/cycling tour in the area. We enjoyed being guests in your house in a beautiful area where there is plenty to do. We were never bored for a moment.
Thank you for the hospitality, we would love to come back to this place.
Love, Maarten, Carina, Coen, Nora, Miel

(10-2022) Good day,

we had a great time in the house Bouyssonnet. It is a nice big house, with a nice quiet location and a nice swimming pool that we were able to use every day because of the nice weather and the heating of the pool. Souillac is a 10-minute drive and we could go to LeClerc and the bakery for all our groceries.

Furthermore, it is especially an attractive house for golfers with the course so close. We've had lunch there regularly after reporting in vain the first time on Sunday as it was full and we should have made a reservation. During the week, however, it was very quiet and plenty of room.

In short, a cozy house with a nice garden, especially for the dogs.

A holiday with 3x R: Relaxed by the Peace and Space and 2x G: Great and Enjoyed.

We (two parents with two teenagers and a dog) had a great holiday in Le Bouyssonnet. Early in the morning a lovely walk was made through the private forest, the village and over or along the golf course. During the walk we enjoyed the sun just above the hills, the already colored trees, crossing deer and... silence (except for our footsteps). From the first cup of coffee and breakfast we lived outside on the spacious veranda and by the pool. The dog could run to his heart's content in the spacious garden while we did not have to worry that he would roam around because the garden is well manicured. The WiFi was in one word great. With 4 people to the pool excellent connection. The pool itself was great too! Because the patio doors of the bedrooms could open all the way to get cool night air in, people also slept well.

We are completely refueled again, too bad it's over and school and work is just around the corner.

(05-2022) Hi Lydia,

Our holiday was great:

  1. Very nice overnight stay in Saint Brisson sur Loire, échappée belle. Highly recommended with a special extra: during the evening walk we heard the nightingale.
  2. The region: oh so beautiful, picturesque villages, beautiful castles, tasty regional products and so much more.
  3. The icing on the cake is your home, a luxurious oasis with lots of charm and tranquility.

(Translated from Dutch)


We had a lovely holiday with beautiful weather. We didn't take any usable photos. Only with ourselves on it.
- You can arrive at night
- The peace and the view
- Fenced, huge yard was great for our dog and ourselves
- The gas bbq
- Nice swimming pool
- Good TV and sofa
- Bread service at the golf course
- Lots of golf and tennis
- Travel distance to do well.
Points for improvement: indicate that the glasses are in the piano (we were looking for a while). Filter coffee maker needs to be replaced, coffee does not run well due to limescale build-up. Note FranceVilla: this has already happened.
There is a good chance that we will book this house again. It fits very well with our wishes.

Hi Lydia,

We are having a great time in your house. What a nice place to spend a week in this region.
And we also fully enjoy the pool.

Dear Thijs and Lydia.

We had a very pleasant stay. Said goodbye to these 2 wonderful weeks last night while enjoying a glass of delicious champagne ????????!! We left around 7 a.m. this morning and we are already on our way to the Netherlands again…

Kind regards,

Peter and Sonja also from Sjaak and Sandra


We enjoyed the space and tranquility around the villa for a week. Unfortunately the weather was a bit cooler the first few days, but that gave us opportunities for activities. Our dog loved the garden and was very interesting because of the smells and sounds of animals. We even spotted deer ourselves.
All in all worth repeating.

(06-2021) Dear,
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We have no real comments on the house itself. Nice big spaces and very pleasant to stay. Fans would be desirable I think if it is very hot for several days.
The day we come back to France we will definitely check your website first. If we put our photos in a folder, we will certainly see if there is anything to send you.

(09-2018) Hi,

We had a lovely stay at Bouyssonnet. The weather was very good so we were able to make

use of the swimming pool and there was plenty of shade in the garden to get out of the sun

if we wanted to. We liked the fact that all the bedrooms have a view of the garden and pool.

We enjoyed spending time sitting in the garden as it was so peaceful but also enjoyed visiting

some of the beautiful towns in the area.

Thank you for returning our breakage deposit.

Kind regards,

Celia G.

(06-2018) Dear Mrs. Mennes, Hello Lydia,

We've had a lovely time. The accomodation is beautiful.
The nature and surroundings around the house provide a tranquil atmosphere.

The booking process, the welcoming in France and the final check were well arranged. If we go to France again, we will certainly check your website.

Kind Regards,

Bram & Cathelijne Z.

(09-2017) Good evening,

We had a very nice holiday and accompanied some photos. The house is beautiful and very spacious, as well as the garden and the location. Very nice bed, slept well (we are very sensitive to that). Nice, all the lecture about France we have devoured. Beautiful bbq, used every night and very easy to clean.

(07-2017) Dear Lydia
Firstly, so sorry that this has taken me so long to email regarding our stay at Bouyssonnet. It has been a busy few weeks of school here since we returned from France.  I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had for our week at Bouyssonnet. The house was beautiful and we all relaxed for the week there and really didn't want to return home.  We ate on the veranda for the entire week, such a beautiful setting. The weather was perfect, we couldn't have asked for more and the pool was used by us all every day and we all loved the rural setting of the house, where we had total peace and quiet. This is the first time we have taken our dog abroad and the gardens worked perfectly, as they are all enclosed, which was peace of mind for us. Rashid was very helpful and arranged for us to visit the local vet (a requirement) before we returned to the UK.  We would definitely look at booking Bouyssonnet again for next year.  For us, with four children and a pet, it proved to be the perfect, relaxing week from our busy lives back in The UK.
With kindest regards and sorry once again for the lateness of this email.

(06-2017) Dear Lydia

We are now back from our holiday in France. We had a lovely time and the weather was beautiful for most of the week. 

Kind regards

Anne F.


Our family did have a good time except for having to deal with several very hot days ....

Rashid was most helpful and the lunch at the fish farm was definitely enjoyable. 

Thank you again, and we hope to return to Le Boussouynnet soon. 

Best wishes

(07-2014) Liebe Lydia,

sorry, dass ich erst jetzt schreibe, sind Samstagabend zurückgekommen.

Wir haben uns so wohl in deinem Haus gefühlt, haben die Abenden auf der Terrasse mit dem fantastischen Sternenhimmel genossen. Waren gleich 2 Sonntage bei deiner sehr sehr netten Freundin Anna, dort wurden wir sehr herzlich begrüßt und bewirtet, wir waren sehr glücklich.

Herzlichen Dank auch für diese Einladung, wir waren von all deinen lieben Aufmerksamkeiten ganz gerührt.

So etwas ist uns noch nie passiert!!!! Aber ja auch deine lieben Mails.

Wir haben uns sehr in die Landschaft verliebt, die Dordogne, der Lot und alle die hübschen mittelalterlichen Orte und deine Restaurante-Tipps waren genial, habe mich noch nicht auf die Waage gestellt!!!!

Wir möchten auf alle Fälle nächstes Jahr wieder in dein Haus!

Also ein ganz herzliches Dankeschön, a bietôt

Liebe Grüße aus Köln
