Berty – what a wonderful place to spend out first holiday in 3 years. It’s the best (and most thoughtfully) equipped gite we have ever stayed in. I challenge anyone to find something that hasn’t been thought of and included! And the welcome pack – second to none & very much enjoyed. Graham & Belinda have been excellent hosts, lovely, lovely people. The gite has been blissfully cool in the heatwave & the pool is glorious. We have had an idyllic 2 weeks, loved the area – lots to see and do. We would recommend without hesitation to anyone & would love to return ourselves. P & K, Sale
Once again it has been an amazing stay at Berty Gite. We had to wait 3 years to come back and can’t wait to come again. Belinda & Graham it has been so good to see you both again, you make us feel so welcome and the girls love all the space and the pool. Thank you for taking us to the lake with the (remote controlled) boats. The girls are now looking forward to sail for real! Many, many thanks for everything. The McAs, Melton Mowbray
Has been a fantastic two weeks of peace, sunshine & family time. Had a visit to the local gourmands evening which was a great kickstart to the holiday and would recommend the one at Lauzerte on a Thursday. Montcuq farmer’s market on a Sunday morning is always a pleasure, and a visit to the market at Cahors on a Wednesday. Plenty of places to eat in the area, we had a lovely meal at Hotel de Quercy in Lauzerte, which was very good. The gite was its usual homely self and with the high temperatures of late, the addition of air con was a blessing. Thank you Belinda & Graham for your hospitality and knowledge and kindness, you make our holiday here a pleasure. J, M, J & C, Carlisle

Lovely place, lovely people! AR
Thank you so much for your hospitality. We had a fantastic 2 weeks at Berty Gite. We found here everything we needed after a pandemic year at homie-isolation The peaceful and quiet place, the beautiful garden which has everything to do for the kids (and for us). We will certainly recommend this gite and maybe come back one day. F & L, T (11), O(10), M (7), The Netherlands
Bedankt voor alle goede zorgen! Onze kleine kon niet goed op de voetbaltafel spelen en Graham heeft voor ons een verhoging gemaakt, ongelooflijk vriendelijke mensen! Tot misschien het volgende jaar! (Thanks for all the good care! Our little one couldn’t play the football table properly and Graham made us an elevated one, incredibly friendly people! Until maybe the next year!) J, K, L, J & T
Lovely house & garden, great hosts, great pool and an interesting region. We had a very welcome relaxing time. Thank you for everything. The H family from Charente-Maritime

Thank you for making our last minute break so enjoyable. We wanted a quiet, relaxing week, and Berty gite gave us that…and more! You were also great hosts, helping us out with emergency supplies on top of the ample welcome pack, making us feel so comfortable in a home from home. The home grown beans, raspberries and herbs were a lovely surprise and a great addition to our meals. Thank you! J, A J & A, Devon
We did enjoy our holiday at Berty Gite and it was so good to get away and be able to relax as well as go out and visit places. The countryside is lovely and we really love rural France and we have made some special memories. The weather was glorious but a little hot at times with the heatwave, and the swimming pool was great. It is a lovely area and whilst under unusual times, so glad we did come and whilst it was sad to cut the holiday short by a day, it was the right thing to do. C, M, J & F, Essex

What a quiet relaxing place to spend a week. Hope to be back again one day. I & J, Cape Town
We were fortunate indeed to be able to have a return stay. Wonderful the first time, and just as wonderful this second stay. Thank you for creating such a magical place and being such brilliant hosts. PW, London.
What a lovely week we’ve spent at Berty Gite. Thank you for all your tips on where to eat, canoe and enjoy night markets! G, A, H, L,R & J. Bristol
We’ve had a wonderful week. Loved the garden – and the pool with all the butterflies & bees was brilliant. Wanted a week to “de-stress” and this was the perfect spot. We were able to settle in straight away in a very comfortable and well-equipped gite. Thank you. S & R, Sheffield
This was just the perfect holiday all round. Beautiful gite, peaceful, great wildlife, superb pool and amazing stargazing. Thank you both for your hospitality. C, H, L & L from Wirral
A superb haven! So peaceful. A great escape from a crazy life. We have loved every moment. Our girls loved the swings & trampoline and more so we have two water babies! We all loved the pool. Thank you so much for your hospitality, such kind people. Our introduction to astronomy was superb. Memories our eldest daughter will treasure. The wildlife was fantastic. Berty has captured our hearts. We hope to be back! Thank you xxx M, R, R, H, L & J, Huddersfield

As ever thank you yet again for a fabulous stay. Weather outstanding as is your hospitality. Our 2 weeks of peace & relaxation seems to go so quickly.
What wonderful week thank you! An amazing garden and incredible pool as well. The boys (and us and the baby!) have had an incredible time… as you have probably been abe to tell from the many squals of delight! The gite is so well equipped which makes life awat from home so much easier, and the effort you went to to make the garden child friendly was so kind. Thank you…. for sharing the magic of Berty Gite with us for a short time. L, M, O, S & E, Sheffield.

We are so pleased that we chose to stay at Berty Gite. Ideal, beautiful location – excellent accommodation. Best gite we’ve ever stayed in. Thank you Belinda & Graham.
Back to lovely Berty Gite for a (hot) delightful stay – thank you both
Yet another wonderful holiday at Berty. Thank you for everything.
As always – totally wonderful stay. Berty is divine. Garden sublime/ pool fab/ house lovely & G & B delightful as always. Best markets 1) Montcuq, Sunday 2) Prayssac Friday 3) Lauzerte Saturday – Cahors Wednesday & Saturday. Swim in Montcuq plan d’eau is awesome and walks on doorstep stunning. Pilgrims, sunflowers, melons, cherries, stunning / seeing Venus moons courtesy of Graham – all fabulous. Back soon – 5 star love & appreciation xxx
14 years on from first visit and still loving it the same! Absolutely wonderful to be back and found it easy as ever to settle into the Berty way of life! Thanks a million
I loved getting to experience everything Tom has raved about from years ago – the melons, the birds, the pool and (of course) your amazing hospitality. We’ll be back!
What a fabulous week! Huge thanks to B & G for looking after us so well and for our fab impromptu astronomy session – even saw the ISS pass by. Weather mixed, but perfect for us with pool, trampoline, table footie, badders, table tennis (phew!) – the boys haven’t complained they’ve been bored once! Love the wildlife here, sunflowers, and the peace was special, as was our meal at Vire sur Lot – Le Caillau – well worth a visit for lovely food. We will return next year.
I loved the pool, the sit on mower ride, the chicken and the cats especially ‘Bunny’ (William age 6)Love your house. See you next year (Edward age 5)
A lovely location and friendly and helpful hosts. We are lucky to live in rural Northamptonshire – oilseed rape and undulating countryside. You however have some wonderful extras – quiet country roads, no A road hum. Wonderful light and Hoopoes.
Thank you so much for allowing us all to stay in your lovely gite. The property was so well equipped and the garden magical. You also arranged wall to wall sunshine!
Thank you for a fabulous stay. Your hospitality is faultless. This is our 6th stay but I hope not our last by a long shot. We love the gite, the garden, the cats and your welcome! The only drawback is that 2 weeks is not enough! Thank you both from us all
Best appointed gite we have ever stayed in – and we’ve been coming to France for 10 years! Boys loved the pool.
Perfect place for creative inspiration, for work, rest and play. Your hospitality has been both warm and generous. Much appreciated. Our walks on the Camino route were fabulous.
