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!
