This was a beautiful house in a lovely rural location in France. We stayed for a fortnight and hardly left the property, with an excellent pool and a great outdoor space we spent most of the day enjoying the sunshine, swimming, watching the wildlife and strolling around the countryside. 46 species of birds were spotted, numerous butterflies, deer and squirrels but alas no wild boar. Would recommend Gondrin for the bakery and butcher (excellent choice for the barbeque).
Spent idyllic week at Barrusclet. Thank you, Mark and Gill for making us so welcome and ensuring our holiday was nothing short of perfect! We loved some of the surrounding villages, particularly Montréal, and enjoyed exploring the region by bike. We will certainly return another time, perhaps when it is warm enough to use the pool as it looked very inviting!
This was our second time staying in this part of france but the first time at Burrsuclet.
We loved it.
Lovely owner, lovely property and lovely area.
We went with 3 generations of family and we all enjoyed it- the night sky was extremely dark (perfect for father in law who bought his telescope), the pool was perfect for the little ones (and enclosed), and the house is large enough to find a quiet spot if you needed to.
Bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely. The games room is perfect- lots of things to do and we loved having the bikes available (although we bought our own too), there is a really good cycle track down the local railway track which also has a cafe on it in the old train station.
The only area that wasn't perfect was the kitchen that needs a bigger cooker and more cupboards. This shouldn't put you off as its perfectly acceptable, its just not as nice as the "wow" bedrooms and bathrooms. In any case we cooked outside most of the time! Nice big fridges though- perfect for 10!
Top tips- lots of local market towns with "plat du jour". The medieival seige museum, and associated town are interesting and worth a trip
Mostly we stayed in the swimming pool :)

Fantastic place to stay ... wonderful accommodation, clean and welcoming .... beautiful surroundings
Plenty of interesting place to cycle to in the area if you get fed up of lying by the pool .... This was my second visit and there will be a third
We recently returned from a fabulous week away in Barrusclet. I cannot recommend this property enough it really did have something for everyone. The farmhouse itself has been renovated to a very high standard and the pool area and grounds were amazing. The property was well stocked with a variety of bikes for exploring the area, and the children enjoyed the games room in the evenings.
Mark and Gill the owners, really had thought of everything to make the stay pleasurable and were a terrific font of knowledge for the surrounding area.
The local village Gondrin had a lovely waterpark, which the children of the group really enjoyed. There were lots of wonderful places to visit including a beautiful medieval village Fources and Castera Verduzan lake beach.
I would highly recommend this property , the whole family had a wonderful time and we hope to return very soon. A big thank you to Mark and Gill, who from the moment of booking the holiday were on hand with a wealth of very useful information which helped make our stay perfect!
