“New Year's Eve at La Bique with friends”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at La Bique. We were with friends (14 adults and 7 children) : the house offers all we need. We spent a lot of time in front of fireplace. It was perfect !

“Excellent family farmhouse”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2011

We travelled with extended family and had a fabulous time. kids loved the den. Monique and Jean-claude who live next door are always there to help , They will even cook a meal for you ( we had a fab paella). Would recommend to famillies with children. The kids loved the pool. Can't wait to go back

“The relaxing break as a family that we really needed... and got!”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2011

The weather may have been changeable but this did not effect our stay at Labique at all. We would recommend it to anyone wanting to chill out and relax. When not exploring the area, most of our time was spent in the fab pool or in the games room (we forgot how much fun table tennis, foosball & darts were to play!)! Claude & Monique at the farm next door were there if you needed anything (they are great cooks!) but respected our privacy which was appreciated. The house has so much character, tastefully decorated and everything you need is there. We were sad to leave it!

“Wonderfull stay -”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2011

All the 14 member family enjoyed this one week together in La bique. Garden with flowers, good , clean and properly protected for kids ( 1 -9 yrs) swimming pool, a character property, several terraces, nice house large enough for us even on one rainy day. Barn's room with games for adults and "boule" area. Nice welcome from Jean Claude and Monique, who also solved any question and prepared and delivered local good cuisine on several occcasions

“A great place to relax in the sun”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2011

We had a fantastic trip to LaBique and the neighbours were extremely helpful and cooked an amazing meal for us the night we arrived. The pool is lovely and most welcome during the hot lazy days. The local restaurants are great, especially Le Panorama nearby with it's fantastic views. - well worth a visit. Canoeing down the rivers is a must and the nearby town of Villneuve sur Lot was brilliant. A great holiday

“Rural France”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2011

We had a great time at 'La Bique', it was great for all our family, the small children had a great time playing in the pool. The weather was very hot and a lot of sunbathing was done. The adults enjoyed a game of Petanque every evening with a serious knock out competition going on. Games room was also a bonus. The Kitchen is quite small but very well equipped for cooking and we cooked every evening plus barbequed. Monique and Jean Claude cooked for us, we did have a little difficulty deciding on a menu as they speak no English at all, even though we speak a little french eventually we decided on mixed salads (which were beautiful with great dressing) road duck, with green beans, and french fries with a beautiful mustard dressing which Monique was going to show us how to make but unfortunately we never got round to it. Followed by pruneaux tarte. The little lane to the rear of 'La Bique' takes you to Clairac along the scenic route which we did by bike every day - lovely little lane passing farms and then joining the river. We enjoyed the little beach area at Clairac and swam in the river - We found the river in other places not so clean. The restaurant/cafe at the beach serves good burgers and frites and is very reasonably priced. HIGHLIGHT - visiting the creperie in Clairac - a little gem. We all thought the best creperie we had every been to. Clairac has a small farmers market on the Thursday and we managed to purchase meet and vegetable for two meals which was very good. Fantastic Aubergines from Monique and Jean Claude plus courgettes, tomatoes, plums (of course). We ventured further afield to the Dordgone for a canoeing trp having done it before we decided we prefered the Dordogne to the Lot, but about one and a half hour trip so worth going for a day trip.

“the perfect holiday”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2011

we had a wonderful stay at la Bique, with plenty of space(we were 6 adults and lots of kids). Compared to previous rental experiences everything was a much higher standard, wonderful beds and linen, a well equipped kitchen, lovely furniture, library, the list could go on for ever. In one the outbuildings is a lovely games room for the kids, next to the pool. The neighbors (Jean Claude and Monique) are farmers who own the land around the house, and will be happy to supply you with all sorts of incredibly delicious fresh produce(strawberries, plums, courgettes, tomatoes, salads....), and are a great source of information about the area, which is beautiful with lots to do. We will definitely come back for another action packed family holiday!

“Great place, great holiday, just great!”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2011

Everyone really like the house, and esp. the pool and garden. Had some great bbqs and the managers who live next door were genuinely friendly and helpful - and their farm produce couldn't have been fresher. They cooked for us on the last night and frankly I wish they'd done the whole week - great local stuff and good value. We enjoyed the riverside walks into town and the evenings playing boules - even challenged the neighbours one night, but of course they won. We go somewhere different every year, but I think we'll give it a couple of years and be back. and the kids loved the games room - kept them busy most evenings, which was a result

“Fantastic house for both young and old, relaxing or exploring”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2011

La Bique met our expectations and more. We went as a group of 3 families, each with 2 children with ages ranging from 2 to 7 and none of them wanted to come home. The house is fully set up for catering for both kids and adults with the pool, petanque and games room pretty much in constant use on the days we chose to just stay at the house and laze around. Our kids all spent so much time in the lovely warm pool that they should be like little Clairac prunes (delicacy of the region) by now. With a boulangerie (infact 2) and an adequate supermarket only 2kms away the morning patisserie run is also a doddle. After a prior years holiday that required a 2hr round trip to get to the supermarket and back this was a major selling point for us. The kitchen, although on the small side, is fully equipped with everything you could need and the webber gas bbq in the garden provides the opportunity to cook al fresco for eating at the two large outdoor tables. We only ate one meal inside in the 2 weeks we were there. The indoor decor is lovely with a great living area ample size for our 3 families. For anyone coming with older family, the ground floor bedroom with shower room adjacent would be ideal for easier access. The linen was better quality than many places we've stayed before and the large towels for the poolside were put to constant use. Andrew (the owner) and Jean-Claude and Monique (the next door neighbours who look after all the day to day requirements) were both brilliantly responsive to any queries, requests or arrangements - can't fault them at all. Clairac itself appears to be taking a bit of a hit from the recession, as are lots of areas of the world, with some of the museums and restaurants having shut down and some others appearing to operate on slightly unpredictable hours. Having said that, there are so many lovely places close by it didn't really matter. The boulangerie and supermarket were sufficient for us and we alternated days lazing about at La Bique and taking day trips to the surrounding areas recommended in the house manual - all of which were under 1hr drive away and many much less. Ended it all with highly competitive petanque-off accompanied by some nice wine - perfect
