"What a lovely week we have had! We could not have asked for more beautiful weather and a more picturesque environment. It was a great escape from our humid and hot home in Washington, D.C. You were both wonderful hosts. The fresh produce made for some very tasty dinners on the terrace! We could stay here for much longer, enjoying the peace and solitude of La Bergerie, but alas, we must return to the city ... until next time!"

"This has been our second stay at " La Bergerie " and it is still the best place you could ever find to spend a holiday. We have become so fond of Nini and Ugo "et les animaux " and are so deeply touched by their warmth and generosity. "La Bergerie" will always hold a special place in our hearts and will certainly be back. Thank you so much."

"We leave La Bergerie and our extended family with many fond memories with the hope we can return again to this beautiful place, perhaps next year?"
