Les Pesques
Ranked #1 of 1 Palaminy B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 15, 2012

We stayed with Brigitte and her family for 5 nights as we had a wedding to attend in Muret, slightly closer to Toulouse. Our desire to stay somewhere authentically French, relaxing and out in the countryside was perfectly met by Les Pesques. I had seen photos on their website and on Trip Advisor, but with the lilacs and roses blooming, I hadn't been prepared for how lovely the property really was.

We stayed in the Elizabeth Room - part of a renovated barn to the left of the main house. The room was spacious, with chairs comfortable for sitting, a generous bathroom with walk-in shower and a large double bed. All the furnishings are beautiful and in the French country style, with vases of fresh flowers from the garden. Brigitte's eye for detail is everywhere, with everything lovingly put together and cared for.

Breakfasts were enough to keep us from eating lunch most days, with fresh local bread, croissants which seemed to vary type every day, fruit, Brigitte's homemade jams and compotes, and big bowls of fresh coffee (of course you may have tea if you wish!).

We also ate with Brigitte and her family (unfortunately Bruno was away for work and we didn't get to meet him) on two evenings. It was a real treat for us to eat with a French family, and they tolerated our terrible lack of French very well (Brigitte's English is excellent) and we had a great time talking with them. The food is fresh, local and uncomplicated French cuisine at its best.

Brigitte and Bruno keep 17 chickens, a horse (named, I believe 'Jolie'), a pony, sheep and several cats (we saw at least 3), so this is a wonderful place to stay if you enjoy the relaxing company of animals.

Not to forget Brigitte's petite brocante in the garden - a lovely way to spend time without having to leave the front gate.

The local area was beautiful, with vibrant markets in the closest town, Cazeres, and others such as Salies-du-Salat within half an hour's driving distance. Brigitte's advice on villages to visit was spot on, and we caught some magnificent views of the Pyrenees.

If you're looking for somewhere quiet and tranquil to completely relax and breathe in the fresh air and eat fresh food, this is the spot to stay. We can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: The Élisabeth Room has views right into the fields beside the house where the horse, pony and sheet...

We had a fabulous time staying with Brigitte at Les Pesques (don't forget to pronounce the final s!). A lovely relaxing place to stay in an old renovated farm, bedecked in wisteria blossom in April, roamed by cats and enlivened by nearby chickens, sheep (I even stroked one!), and horses, not to mention the little "brocante" or stylish junk shop Brigitte has created in the garden. We ate with Brigitte each night and enjoyed interesting discussions in both English and French with her and other guests till quite late. She is so full of useful information. Also took an enjoyable ramble down to the nearby stream and up the surrounding hills. A real taste of the French countryside which I can't recommend highly enough. Merci Brigitte et a bientot!

The name of the B&B means "fishing hole" - to saw that Birgitte has made the rooms charming is indeed an understatement. We had dinner with the owners - the conversation and the food were both excellent. Another charming factor is a little shed/house where Birgitte has collected plates, glasses, etc. which you can purchase - naturally, we bought things. Although a bit far from Toulouse, definitely worth the trip - and you get to explore the countryside and see how the French really live.

Room Tip: We had the room that overlooks the field - which was the originally the barn- outside the window ar...

I cannot recommend Les Pesques highly enough. My wife and I stayed here while traveling through France in July, and were so sad that we could not stay longer. The setting of the house is beautiful, and Brigitte could not have been more helpful. We ate with Brigitte that evening with some other guests and the food was absolutely fantastic. We will definitely return when we visit France again.

We stayed at Les Pesques for two nights and loved it. The room was beautifully dressed with a lovely blue and white theme and there was so much attention to detail. The bed was very comfortable with cotton and linen sheets and covers. There were some interesting touches, like old interesting books and teddy bears in the adjoining childrens room.
We had breakfast each morning which was quite a social event as we all sat together out in the beautiful garden. The food was really good and included Brigitte's home made cakes and jams. Brigitte joined us and was very entertaining recounting stories and telling us a little about her family. When we left she gave us some courgettes from the garden to take home with us.
I would recommend Les Pesques to anyone, it is much more than just a place to stay.

My wife and I and two daughters stayed with Brigitte and Bruno for two nights and wished we could have stayed a month. The house and gardens could not be more beautiful. Rooms are spacious, beautifully furnished, and comfortable. We had dinner there both nights, The food was so good the first night that we opted to dine in the second night as well. Bruno and Brigitte joined us for dinner and were wonderful company. Brigitte speaks excellent English and both she and Bruno were very eager to encourage our attempts to speak French. We felt as though we had not only had a wonderful stay, but that we had made lifelong friends. We hope to return and would recommend Les Pesques wholeheartedly.

This is the second time we have stayed at Les Pesques and we love it there. Brigitte & Bruno Le Bris run a beautiful chambre d'hote just a stone's throw from the Garonne, set amidst fields of Sunflowers. You really should try Brigitte's delicious dinners (only €20 per person) and visit Cazeres market on Saturday. Un peteit morceau de la vrai France!
