What a fabulous retreat
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
On our arrival we were really warmly greeted by Jane and Graham with a cold beer and soft drinks (for the children) at their peaceful barn in the hamlet of Caux. Jane and Graham gave us a tour of the property to make sure we felt at home. A really nice start to two idyllic weeks.
The barn is absolutely beautiful. We were surprised by the size of the barn and bedrooms – huge! The barn is really light and airy and tastefully decorated. Think luxury! The bedrooms are also luxurious…lots of beams and natural stone all brought together with contemporary fixtures and fittings. If you somehow fail to miss the wow factor inside the property just take a look at over the countryside from the terraces.Beautiful…peaceful…and relaxing. We regularly spotted deer and birds of prey.
The pool is perfect and manages to capture the sun from early morning until late evening. The pool was cleaned twice during our stay by Ruud who provided us with lots of local knowledge about what to see and do. Ruud’s knowledge complimented the welcome pack that Jane had provided. A really nice guy.
There are some fantastic hilltop villages within a few km’s of the barn. The Lot river is also on your doorstep. Travelling is a delight as traffic is virtually non-existent. The barn was spotless on our arrival. Jane and Graham had also provided us with some essentials to see us through until the next day. A really nice surprise.
It was with a heavy heart that we left the barn after two weeks. We have spent 17 years holidaying in France and would love to visit the barn again as it really is very special.

Lovely home in a tranquil setting
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We loved our holiday in Caux. Its a beautiful converted farmhouse/barn. Its a great location too as you can be in Cahors in 30 minutes. The nearby village of Montcuq is big enough to have all the amenities but small enough to be charming!
The house has all the stuff you could possibly need with a pool and ample space outside to tire out boisterous children. We would definitely recommend the lovely barn holiday to anyone.

What an impressive home
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We have had the most wonderful stay at Bijou Barn – what an impressive home, both stylishly charming and stunning. The bedrooms were unique and very luxurious.
The pool was fantastic and it was great to relax in the garden or on the terraces. We also enjoyed exploring the many places of interest the area had to offer, when we could tear ourselves away from the house. We will definitely be back.
