“A wonderful, relaxing, beautiful, tranquil holiday due to fabulous hosts and a fabulous 19th century barn”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Le Laurier is a truly wonderful and best kept secret (so it will always be available when we need to go!) of Holiday Lettings. Set in a beautiful part of the French countryside it will be difficult to summarise just how great it was to stay here, but I will try! From the warm and friendly welcome when we first arrived from fantastic hosts Kathryn and John, to the beautiful barn that was equipped with everything you could possibly think of and then just being completely spoilt by them in between. We both needed to "get away from it all" and Le Laurier truly delivers on that front, we sat for hours on the terrace reading, listening to music, sun bathing and enjoying meals cooked on the barbecue and fabulous French wine. The barn is beautiful, comfy sofas, great bedroom, lovely kitchen and lounge with an extensive library and an enviable DVD and CD catalogue. So thoughtfully renovated with beautiful furniture, decor, it is spotlessly clean with all the things you need that often aren't remembered in holiday cottages. Not forgetting the gorgeous garden, the organic potager (some seriously tasty treats from here) and the beautiful garden terrace. I cannot convey how peaceful and relaxing it was to be here. We honestly think that it was one of the best holidays we have ever had.

We were given the best advice of where to go and what to see by our hosts and local treats include St Cirque d'Popie, Conques, Najac and Belcastel to name but a few. That was when we could tear ourselves away from Le Laurier! There were some nice touches from Kathryn and John that genuinely warmed our heart which I will not reveal as you need to find out for yourself! They have a great knowledge of the area, helpful when needing to know where to head to on the bikes you can borrow or where to go sightseeing and they have also expanded our taste in wine! We shall be returning, you try and keep us away.

Hope this helps when selecting to stay here, it is simply perfect. If you need to get away from the stresses and strains of modern life staying here will restore you to who you really are!

“A stylish gem tucked away in beautiful French countryside”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in August 2012

people found this review helpful

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at this stylish gem tucked away in beautiful French countryside. We could have lounged all day on the shady terrace reading books, and watching the butterflies bees and birds go about their business in the charmingly planted garden. We did venture out on market days and had superb meals in Ville Franche de Rouergue and Figeac, which also has a great little museum dedicated to Champollion. By far our favourite outing was to the prehistoric caves at Pech Merle, a lesser-known cave system, but well worth a visit. Kathryn’s cooking was superb, we arranged to have a meal provided by her on the terrace on the evening we arrived, which was delicious, and later in the week we took a walk to the top of the hill with one of her excellent picnics. John and Kathryn were wonderful hosts, very affable with a fantastic knowledge of the area and an amazing music, DVD, and book collection, which they generously share with their guests. We will certainly be visiting La Laurier on our next French holiday.
