“Truly a home from home! Despite the very last minute break, we couldn’t have found a better equipped holiday house.” Bruce family, Scotland (2012)


“What can we say about the property – it was all we expected and much more! The facilities and amenities were great for everyone, particularly the pool which everyone loved! Overall, a brilliant stay in a beautiful property with stunning views and we would highly recommend this to any of our family and friends.” Groom family, England (2012)

“We couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to stay. The garden and swimming pool is where we have enjoyed spending most of our time, but the house is cosy and comfortable also. The chef in our party has made great use of the kitchen which is very stylish. The whole place is well kept and idealic.” Ellis family, England (2012)

“We booked Roussergues Sud over the internet from New Zealand months ago and always you wonder what you will actually find when you arrive at the property. Clearly the only mistake we made was not booking the property for longer. Roussergues Sud was everything we wanted and more. The decent pool towels, linen and well stocked kitchen were all an added bonus and much appreciated.” Amos family, New Zealand (2012)


“What a great property, having stayed at a number of different ones over the years, it is fair to say that it is often hit and miss, but this is definitely a hit!” Lagdens August (2013)


“The house was brilliant in terms of accommodation and comfort and the pool was superb and we had great weather to relax by it….aaah….”  Masons August (2013)


“Fabulous two weeks in a lovely property.  Have stayed in many properties in the area but would definitely stay here again.” Dunfords August (2013)


“Hard to leave the pool but the whole place is lovely – the house, facilities and the views” Gillespie July (2013)


"We had a wonderful holiday  - your house is beautiful and is situated in such a perfect position for the weather and the views. Watching the sunrise is marvelous.  Caylus is a beautiful town and the drive to and from is so picturesque, it's breath-taking." Katrina Johnson Aug (2014)


"We have had a marvelous week staying in the gite and visiting the beautiful surrounding towns and villages. Oh! and the pool was lovely and the children had such fun making the most of it and all the other facilities - how delightful! We were most thrilled by the expanse of the accommodation in addition to the breathtaking vista" Innes-Fairbairn Family  Aug (2014)


"Last year we stayed at Roussergues Sud where I had the best sleeps I have had for years.  I wondered if you would mind asking the owners the name of the mattress on the main bed please?" Chris, Aug 2015
