We're Ken and Bernadette. Having spent most of our lives working in London, we decided on a complete change of lifestyle. We adore this part of France and fell in love with Boussagou the moment we saw it and we're sure you will too. Each farmhouse has been lovingly renovated and Boussagou provides a safe and tranquil haven for family or group holidays. We live on-site and are on hand to offer any help, as well as share our abundance of knowledge on places to visit and things to do.
