Deux semaines formidables à Bournazel
Tout d'abord un grand merci pour ces deux semaines passées chez vous où nous avons pu en particulier apprécier votre accueil, la propreté irréprochable du gîte, de la piscine et ... de votre gazon.
Le gîte est très spacieux et nous ne manquions de rien. La petite terrasse était vraiment très agréable matin, midi et soir.
Il faut aussi dire un mot de l'endroit qui était très tranquille et la fête du 15 août un vrai bonheur ! Le soir, le jardin était aussi très agréable.
Un endroit que nous recommandons très chaudement pour la région, le gîte et les propriétaires.
See you soon and thanks a lot ...
L'accueil des propriétaires est excellent.
Le gîte est propre, moderne et décoré avec goût.

Wow! What an amazing place!
First impression, what a lovely character building. Then when I saw inside I was so impressed. Really open, large ground floor with a well kitted out kitchen and excellent equipment including cooker, toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher, - washing machine is in the downstairs cloakroom. Comfy seating area and table and chairs for eating. All well planned and decorated. Upstairs I had a very large double room. Loads of room! Comfy bed and 2 Velux work on a remote control! The shower room is small but its got everything you need and is all new. The gite I was in had a twin room as well (en-suite). Our gite had adjoining (lockable) doors to next door gite so would be great for a group especially with the 3rd gite. There's a lovely feel to these gites. They all have terraces and tables, chairs outside. One thing to be aware of is that they all have steps up to them so if you have a mobility issue I'd go for one of the gites that adjoin. I was in Noisette and that had an option to walk round to a gentle grassy slope to the terrace and entrance. Outside there's a big grassy area and a decent pool which is well fenced so little ones can't get in . The pool has lounging furniture too. John and Nicky, the owners live in their conversion on site and are very hands-on with everything and have plenty of local knowledge as well as being really welcoming and friendly. I've already raved about the property to my family and friends and with cheap fares from Stansted (£30 return) its a no brainer! Drawbacks - only one bar in the town so you definitely need a car to get out and about unless you do just want to sit about. I've put 4 stars only because I felt you definitely needed a car and the bathroom might be challenging with small children.
Vacances de rêve dans un très beau gite au calme
Nous avons passé 2 semaines dans le gîte noisette. John et Nicky nous ont chaleureusement accueillis, le gîte est spacieux, joliment décoré et tout est prévu pour le confort et la facilité. John et Nicky avaient même prévu une barrière de sécurité et une chaise haute pour notre petit dernier. Le bâtiment est magnifiquement restauré, la terrasse agréable et la piscine superbe. Le village est charmant, ainsi que les alentours. Les activités avec les enfants sont possibles à proximité (visite de la ferme très appréciée par nos deux enfants en particulier!). C'est un gîte idéal pour se reposer, se ressourcer, mais des ballades et des découvertes aux environs sont très faciles (les sentiers de randonnée passent à côté de la maison). Bref, nous conseillons vivement ce gite, john et Nicky sont également très réactifs en cas de difficulté ou de questions. Un grand merci à eux et à la prochaine!
Stunning location where no detail overlooked
The welcome was wonderful.The gite was set out to the highest standard where nothing had been forgotten.Everything was clean and worked perfectly. The bedrooms and shower facilities were of the highest order as was the living accommodation.The view of the Aveyron countryside from the private balcony is stunning and swimming in the pool is a joy.There are lots of wonderful places to visit and the best of these are detailed each week on a blackboard which is by all the other local information literature.There are wonderful places to visit and very good restaurants within easy reach of Lw Roc.
John and Nicky have worked hard to create five star holiday accommodation. They are kind,caring and attentive hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. If there is an award for gite accommodation or a new business within Home and Away then it should be awarded to Le Roc and it's terrific owners.Go and stay in Bournazel, you will not regret a moment.

Gite Noisette is located on the edge of the Village of Bournazel. Bournazel is situated between two medium sized towns; Montbazens and Rignac. Both of which are approximately eight minutes drive away and have supermarkets, chemists, bakers, butchers and banks as well as restaurants. Montbazens has a very good market on Wednesday mornings and Rignac on Tuesday mornings.
Le Roc is ideally located for exploring the Aveyron region and the many attractions it has to offer. For those who love the countryside there are a host of way marked walks and cycle trails, many starting and ending near the entrance to Le Roc. There are many locations on the rivers Lot and Aveyron where canoes can be hired. The Aveyron boasts ten of France’s ‘most beautiful villages’ as well as numerous chateaux, churches and cathedrals which those with an interest in history and culture can enjoy. The Aveyron is renowned as being the home of many of France’s greatest chefs and foodies can enjoy the Michelin-starred restaurants in Belcastel, Sauveterre de Rouergue and Laguiole or the delights of shopping for the freshest of ingredients in the local markets.
In the summer months every small town and almost every village, including Bournazel, holds a ‘fete’ which involves several days of festivities ending with an amazing firework display. Additionally, villages host night markets where vendors set up stalls selling food wine and local produce. Trestle tables are set out and wine and beer can be bought to accompany food that you buy from the vendors. This is a really nice way to spend a summer evening, meeting people and sampling local specialties, such as ‘aligot’ or ‘soup de fromage’. If this appeals to you we can let you know when and where night markets are held during July and August.
