Guest Book Reviews

Amazing stay and highly recommended

La Bigourdane 7 - 10 September 2018

This location offered a beautiful setting and unique experience for our group of 6 young adults during our 3 night stay. Everything was perfect, from the quaint small village, breathtaking mountain views, and beautiful backyard, which I wish I would've had more time to explore had we stayed for longer! Susan and Doug were wonderful hosts, very responsive, and went above and beyond with so many thoughtful touches, such as the Nespresso coffee machine and coffee pods made available to us, and even a homemade cake and wine waiting for us on our arrival! Susan readily offered helpful suggestions of hiking routes, and offered plenty of maps and guides to help us as well. Our group also took advantage of the option for a table d'hote (4 course meal prepared by the hosts, offered for an additional fee) and it was absolutely worth it! For anyone on the fence, I'd highly recommend to go for it, as the food was perfection, locally sourced, flavorful, and definitely restaurant quality - not to mention of course that Susan and Doug were wonderful company. Overall an amazing stay and highly recommended!

The company, the location, the house was awesome

La Bigourdane  - 31 may - 2 June 2018

Our family of 6 adults stayed for 2 nights, wish it would've been longer! The hiking in the area was perfect for us. We hiked several times for about 2 hours and it was perfect. The house is beautiful with great charm. Susan and Doug met us late at night on our arrival as we got lost. And, then cooked dinner one night for us. It was the best meal we had in France! It was FANTASTIC! The company, the location, the house was awesome. Would recommend this for anyone wanting to get away from the city for a while.

La jardin

Beautifully decorated and immaculately kept!

Bed and Breakfast:  30 September - 2 October 2017

Americans WAKE UP! and come and see this beautiful place!  Sadly, we did not know about all that these awesome mountain communities offer!

The travel UP from Bagneres de Bigorre though short could only be for senior Americans from Colorado who know mountain driving!

This beautifully decorated and immaculately kept hotel/B&B should be in a magazine!

It will be fun keeping in touch to see how this beautiful property evolves.  Merci beaucoup!
