“Paradise for parents and children alike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2010

We have just returned from a marvellous holiday, which exceeded expectations and was more relaxing than we could have dreamed of with a 2 ½ and 12 week old. Les and Louise have encapsulated everything we would have designed ourselves in a holiday house (Not in any order!): Beautiful property set within acres of gardens in a tranquil setting, accommodation with real attention to detail, very friendly and helpful hosts who nothing appears to be too much trouble, restaurant-quality meals, secure heated swimming pool surrounded by sweet-smelling lavender, sandpit, playhouse and climbing frame, baby equipment provided and a scrummy welcome pack. Yurt was being built whilst we were there and looks fabulous. Highly recommend Bois Bourdet, will return.

We had a fantastic time at Bois Bourdet. The location and accomodation are lovely and the owners, Les and Louise, are exceptionally hospitable. The free range chickens are pretty friendly too - our 1 year old was best friends with them by the time we left! If you're visiting with young children the facilities on offer (sand pit, playhouse etc) are excellent or if you're just going as a couple, it's a beautiful and very peaceful choice. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Bois Bourdet, and hope to visit again ourselves in the future.

This is our second visit to the stunning farmhouse of Bois Bourdet set in the beautiful french countryside. The accomodation is spacious and very well kitted out for a family holiday, this does lighten the load of travelling with 2 young kids and the lovely warm pool and garden is perfect for keeping little ones entertained. The hosts are so welcoming and cooked us a fabulous meal which was a real treat and allowed us to sample more local delights whilst the kids were tucked up in bed. Would definitely recommend but luckily we are already booked up for next year!

Bois Bourdet is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. The gites are meticulously clean and very comfortable for a most welcome home from home stay and Les and Louise the owners are so helpful they just cant do enough for you, they're great. The swimming pool is just lovely for those long hot summer days and the kids will have a ball with all the toys provided.
We have stayed 3 times now with family, alone and on honeymoon with friends when we couldn't think of a better place to be for our special holiday. If you want peace & quiet or a lovely family holiday in a georgous setting you cannot go wrong here.

We have just returned from a fantastic fortnight stay at Bois Bourdet with our 2 young children (5 and 2 years old).

The children loved the secure gardens where they could play and roam freely. They enjoyed the sandpit, wendy house, swings and trampoline and we had many happy hours in the lovely, heated pool. The children particularly miss feeding the chickens!

The accomodation itself was very comfortable and had everything we could need. It was lovely to be able to help ourselves to the fresh vegetables from the garden (cucumber, salad leaves and tomato at the moment) for our own meals. We loved the fresh eggs as well. The best bit was Les and Louise's fantastic home cooked meals - a real treat in self-catering accomodation. Louise even made a beautiful sponge cake to celebrate our daughter's 5th birthday.

We had a fantastic holiday at Bois Bourdet. It is a perfect place for a young family - lots for the children to do and a chance for adults to relax too.

Bois Bourdet offers the perfect blend of adult relaxation (remember those child free holidays!) whilst being a great child-friendly location allowing the little ones to enjoy themselves in the great outdoors at the same time. We had as relaxing a holiday as a break with a toddler can be! Our very lively 21 month old enjoyed feeding the chickens, picking (eating the majority) fresh strawberries, playing on the swings, slide, wendy house and swimming in the lovely heated pool. We enjoyed dining on our private terrace whilst Les & Louise (the perfect hosts) served us with delicious home cooked cuisine. We could also relax in the knowledge that we were close on hand should our toddler escape her cot (a favourite pastime) yet still enjoy some much needed adult time as eating out had become a thing of the past. Bois Bourdet offers a perfect combination of self catering with the option of having a fantastic meal cooked for you on those nights where you want to spoil yourselves. The only downside was the weight gain from such good food and only having stayed for one week. Next time we will book two! Thank you Les & Louise for making us feel human again!!
