About Carol Whiteway

After many family holidays in France, over a period of some 20 years, deciding to live here was not too difficult.

With the family grown up, and settled, we wanted a change in our lives. So we packed up the heating and plumbing industry, and office demands, and we moved to the Lot et Garonne, and took up new challenges.

Now some six years on, still very happy with our new location and life style. We have new friends, and met lots of interesting people. We found skills, we never knew we had.

Carol Whiteway purchased this barn in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed a memorable week-long stay at Bouye. The interesting restored Prune Barn was most delightful. It was roomy and comfortable, spotlessly clean and very well appointed, with large French doors opening out from both the bedroom and the kitchen to a sunny patio, complete with a dining table and lounge chairs.





Carol and Martin were the best hosts you could ask for. They were so friendly and helpful, and their hospitality exceeded our expectations. The welcome package of fresh fruit and vegetables from their garden, beer, wine, juice and bottled water, as well as yogurt, and fresh bread hot, from the oven, was amazing!



During the day, we enjoyed driving in the French countryside and visiting the many quaint bastides and villages. We fell in love with the markets, and the friendly vendors, as well as the town square ambiance. Needless to say, we also enjoyed the delicious French cuisine and wine served in the many cafes and dining rooms.



Bouye, situated in the tranquil countryside, was a perfect place to relax and to enjoy sunbathing and swimming in the lovely pool after a wonderful day of sightseeing.



We highly recommend Bouye to anyone wanting a relaxing and interesting vacation in beautiful Southwest France. Bouye is a gem!

Fantastic Bouye!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful gite with fully equiped kitchen, exceptionally clean and very well presented. Everything you need on hand for a relaxing holiday in South West France. Beautiful pool, BBQ, terrace with sun loungers in beautiful and peaceful surroundings - all set near an idylic village, ideal for touring this area of France but also has a variety of amenities nearby. Hosts are a wonderful couple who we now regard as friends, above and beyond good customer service.
Thoroughly recommend .. 10/10 !

Amazing holiday villa!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, my 18month old daughter and I stayed at the Bouye Prune Barn for just under two weeks and had a really wonderful holiday. The villa is a short drive away from the quaint bastide town of Montflanquin and is a good base from which to explore the area. The villa itself has been restored to an excellent standard, maintaining original character features such as the wooden beams but with all the comfort and equipment you would expect to find in a modern apartment (dishwasher, washing machine, oven, microwave etc). It is in a beautiful location surrounded by sunflower fields providing a perfect, peaceful view for sunbathing or dining outdoors on the terrace. There is also a very clean and well maintained pool.

Carol and Martin are absolutely fantastic hosts! Their hospitality exceeded all expectations. They were there to welcome us on arrival and we had a fridge stocked with fresh produce from their garden and all essentials such as butter, bread, jam, tea, coffee etc not to mention a lovely bottle of local wine. They also had everything that I could have wished for to meet my little one's needs - cot, sheets, towels, high chair, cutlery, crockery, indoor and pool toys. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always happy to offer helpful advice on nearby towns, sights to see, local restaurants etc.

We had such an amazing holiday and would definitely think about going back there for another holiday - we even suggested to our families that they might like to join us there! We would highly recommend the Bouye Prune Barn and hope that you enjoy your stay there as much as we enjoyed ours.

Tranquil Holiday

  • 5 of 5
What more could we have wished for, a beautiful location, quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The gite was spotlessly clean as was the pool area and was equipped with everything that was needed for a great self-catering holiday. On our arrival Carol had prepared a welcome pack consisting of fresh fruit/cheese/ bread/coffee beer and wine!!!
The fresh fruit and vegetables we were given straight from the pottage each day were greatly received; nothing beats the taste of home grown produce!
The location of the gite near the beautiful town of Monflaquin is perfect to explore many other nearby villages of interest.
Our hosts Carol and Martin were perfect neighbours! On hand if we needed any advice but disappearing into the background when we wanted to chill out and relax.
All in all an extremely enjoyable holiday and recommended for anyone who appreciates peace and quiet in a tranquil setting with lovely hosts.

Beautiful renovated barn surrounded by sunflowers

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 weeks at Bouye and stayed in the barn which sleeps 4. It was everything we wanted and more! The facilities provided by Carol and Martin were first class and it was beautifully clean and welcoming.
Carol and Martin lived in the barn opposite and they were perfect hosts. They provided us with loads of information about places to visit, tips on driving in France and places to eat.
We loved having our breakfast on the sunny decking in the mornings and eating our dinner in the cooler shade in the evenings. The pool was great and perfect to cool off in on the hot sunny days. It is only for guests use, and Carol and Martin when they were around. When they were we really enjoyed having their company.
The nearest village was Monflanquin which was a small, pretty Bastide town on a hill with amazing views. It was quiet and not many shops although fortunately there was a large supermarket nearby which we frequented for our food. There is a lot to see in the area but everywhere is a drive away and sometimes further than you think. A car is essential.
Bouye is surrounded by sunflowers with a couple of other properties nearby. You really do get a feeling of tranquility, it is relaxing and peaceful.
Overall we can not fault the property, facilities provided and the lovely owners hospitality. If you want peace and quiet it is perfect.

A wonderful property in a beautiful part of France

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with the owners when they did Chambre d'hôte and were never disappointed then and it was no different with their Gite . From our booking arrangements to our final goodbyes it was everything we wanted - spotlessly clean and everything worked . The facilities provided are all of a good standard and the fans were a very welcome feature when the temperature soared.
This is a beautiful part of France and the owners were always available to give us advice and directions to get the most out of our stay.
We would be happy to recommend this property to anyone.

Car: recommended

The stone buildings at Bouyé, together with its swimming pool, rest in the quiet countryside, near the famous Bastide town of Monflanquin. Self catering and B&B accommodation are available. Enjoy the tranquil countryside, stroll the quiet lanes, discover the local wildlife: birds of prey, deer, and wild boar. Local outdoor activities are in abundance: golf courses, equestrian centres, tennis, fishing and trotting to name but a few. Nearby there is a lake offering bathing, boating, or just playing on the man-made beach. France would not be complete without a Chateau - Biron and Bonaguil are just two! Monflanquin is a perfect venue for many open air events, including the spectacular August Medieval Fete, and no exception is the weekly morning market, which continues throughout the year. Evening markets prove to be very popular with our visitors too, with an opportunity to purchase regional produce from the stalls in the square, and dine al fresco! A great way to experience local French life.

Or may be just enjoy the tranquility of the surrounding countryside, relaxing by the pool.
