“A French treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We stayed with Brigitte for one night, but she was by far the best hostess during our whole 2 week trip of France.
We called her slightly lost for directions, when in my broken French I asked her if she spoke English. A little she said, and then continued to speak fluently in English to me! We soon found her beautiful home and we welcomed warmly.

We asked if she knew any nice drives as we wanted to look around the national parks. She got out a road map (which she lent us) and told us where to go, where to stop for lunch (very good choice) and we ended up driving up the most beautiful mountains I have ever seen.
On our return we had a lovely pot of English tea and home-made biscuits waiting.

Our bedroom was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the whole house was so rustic and French.
We had a perfectly cooked boiled egg for breakfast as well as juice, pastries, bread, home-made jam and tea. We really enjoyed our stay here, she was the perfect host the house was amazing, and with a view from our bedroom window like the one we had it was worth it just for that.

We stayed only one night at Les Pesques but wished we had stayed longer. The place is lovely, tranquil and relaxing. Brigitte is a delightful hostess and Bruno's tomatoes were some of the best I have ever, ever eaten. The place itself is old, restored but not overly updated so has rustic charm and is a real home for the family. Expect creaking floors, low doorways, a few cats running around and an authentic old french-farmhouse look and feel. We were welcomed with a big pot of tea in the garden, and dinned with the host and hostess and other guests on their local produce and local very good wines. Brigitte is such a good hostess, keeping conversation flowing. A lovely place and immense value for money (really Brigitte should charge a lot more - it is worth it!)

What Brigitte and Bruno offer is delightfully unique. Our accommodation was very spacious oozing with French charm. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed and every detail was French country style. Our hosts know how to create a home away from home. Their cooking revolved around their garden and local producers (yumm!). They were only too pleased to attend to our every need and they engaged us and other guests in conversation with vivacity and enthusiasm. In addition, they had a fantastic knowledge of special points of interest and were able to apply that to our preferences. In all of our travels over 20 years, this French B&B in an idyllic tranquil setting ranks in the top five.

We stayed with Brigitte and Bruno at Les Pesques for 3 nights in August 2012 at the start of our holiday after flying to Toulouse. Theirs is a lovely French bed and breakfast with character, land and some animals where we were made to feel very welcome. We ate with the family/other guests on two evenings which was most enjoyable and typically French. It represents excellent value for money. The area is very peaceful though only a short distance by car to a small village with amenities.

We arrived in a rain storm but the welcome was very warm.
We had a fabulous visit to Les Pesques which was our first visit to France staying in bed and breakfast accommodation.
We were offered tea and cake on arrival which was gratefully received. We joined Brigitte and Bruno for the evening meal with another couple which was delightful.
Truly a wonderful experience which we will be repeating in the very near future.
Had a walk around the lovely garden before leaving taking numerous photographs.
Thank you Brigitte and Bruno.

If you've never tried a chambre d'hote (French bed and breakfast) this is a great place to start.
The house is old and traditional, oozing character and charm. Brigitte and Bruno LeBris make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive and have some English so communication isn't a problem.
We stayed for two nights and ate our traditional evening meals with the family and other guests - a very enjoyable experience.
If you do a fly/drive holiday to Toulouse this is well worth a visit.

It's been almost 4 years since I met Brigitte LeBris and her family while spending a few days in her wonderful 19th century seigneurial home. I came upon her bed & breakfast in a book I had bought in Hamburg called "Chambres d'Hôtes Secrètes" written by Marie-Dominique Perrin in which she gives Brigitte a charming review. Brigitte is the heart and soul of this magnificent dwelling located in the Haute-Garonne region of southern France roughly located between Toulouse and the Pyrenees as you follow the Garonne river towards its source southwestward. It is a place to relax and tank up on pure nature. I enjoyed a steep jog in the Petites Pyrénées that begin just behind the house across some fields. It was a familial setting. I opted for Brigitte's dinner which included 3 courses plus wine. She once welcomed me with a fresh salad straight from her kitchen garden to the sound of paté, baguette and vino followed by e "Esteban bienvenu en France". The upstairs room has a lovely balcony and sepearate entrance and is my favorite. Do not pass up an excursion to Saint-Bertrand de Comminges, once the administrative seat of the old county. Nearby Martres-Tolosane has a superb restaurant right across the old trains station. Enjoy!

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms as this is a B&B in a country estate.
