Over the years guests have always been kind enough to leave a review and snippets of what had pleased them about the area... Enjoy.

April Kay & Alan . Tenby North Wales.

What a lovely gîte with the fishing so close. Thank you Jenny and Alan for allowing us to come before you were officially open.

I am sure we will be booking again so we can look more closely at the places we hadn’t time to visit properly and to have a proper go at there carp. Can we take kermit home with us please.

Best wishes Alan and Kay.


May Pat & Malcolm . West Yorkshire.

Thank you Jenny and Alan for a warm personal welcome including the brilliant meal and other bonus extras.

The gîte is very tastefully appointed and very comfortable, and the Garden Area well laid out and furnished for serious sunbathing.

Large enough to ramble and enjoy.

Throughout our stay Jenny and Alan have been very helpful with local information also a continuous supply of eggs, strawberries, and cherries.

Jenny… you paid us the compliment of telling us we where perfect guests, can we reverse the compliment… you are the perfect hosts. Pat and Malcolm xxx


June. Richard and Sandy . East Sussex.

This has been our first time in the Lot et Garonne and it to enjoy Jenny and Alan's wonderful welcome and warmth. A week it's not time enough to enjoy it all that the area has to offer, in consequence we shall return

The weather has been great and this allowed us to cover that many miles on our hired bicycles (I recommend this Company).

The meal at Remmy’s is an occurrence not to be missed. Many previous guests have endorsed their appreciation of the quality and care that Jenny and Alan place into gîte, this can only be restated and enforce by ourselves. Thank you Jenny and Alan and we hope to see you for two weeks next year. A bonus for me was to have the bikes and in our interest with Alan re the TT.


June Stella and Gerard Fox

Very many thanks for such a wonderful welcome again. It is such a joy to know that everything is spick and span and we can feel at home straight away.

You certainly go above and beyond to make us feel welcome comfortable. Thank you once again for a great stay. We will be back.

June Liz and Chris . Like many others we are repeat visitors to Gone Fishin’

And that says an awful lot. It's not a coincidence that folk keep coming back.

Although the weather this time was not as kind as previous years–visits it did not stop us getting out and about to our old haunts and finding new places.

This really is a lovely part of France with many other great places within a half days drive if you're so inclined or just chill out with a bottle of wine in the garden and watch kites and hares.

Thank you Jenny and Alan for another lovely holiday. PS don't forget many restaurants and shop still closed on Mondays.

July Joyce and Ian

What a pleasure to return here and find everything so perfect ,the chickens and the lovely eggs (which was enjoyed last year , so looking forward to this). It is such a lovely area so peaceful and relaxing and that we were able to visit some new places and revisit our favourites. The weather was settled in fact it very hot the last few days.

We manage to fit in a trip to Bordeaux which was very enjoyable except perhaps the last-minute dash for the train home!

We sampled more of the local cuisine this time and enjoy every meal we had..

Thank you so much Alan and Jenny for getting as on the right roads , literally, and for your enjoyable Company.

We hope the seeds take well that you gave us from your garden and next summer and next Summer we can look at them with fondest memories. Good luck for November with you're planting of the new Forest Project Best wishes


August Phil and Jan from Lancashire

Superb gite and hosts, special thanks to Jenny for being so kind when I had a medical problem. Casteljaloux is a very nice village and good market, we had a meal at the logos hotels Cordelais extremely tasty food and good value.

Other restaurants we could recommend besides those details by Alan et Jenny are Auberge du Goujon at Buzet.

Also au bord de l’au

The fishing although only managing three days due to extreme weather 43°C and a medical issue was exceptional. 31 fish caught, one black bass about 2 lb in weight the rest all common carp ranging from 11 lb to 15 lb in weight and all in exceptional condition. Salute staged sweetcorn finished over a bed of corn and pellets kept the bites coming even in the heat of the day. We have enjoyed our stay in the sunny Lot et Garonne Will return next year to do the things we didn't manage this year thank you again once again Alan and Jenny

August Jean and David

Once again, we have really enjoyed our stay with you.

The night markets and the morning markets have been a real French experience. We just love the peace and quiet of the countryside, the birds, butterflies and flowers - a real joy to see species that we do not see at home.

Most of all, thank you Jenny and Alan for your friendship and help and that warm welcome when we arrived.


September Caroline & Paul

What a welcome - ham salad, wine , baguette, croissants,. Very comfortable. Thanks girls for the fresh eggs (hens) - very nice. Been far and wide, even 2hrs each way to see some great places, managed a day on the beach too.

Quiet time fishing with good resultsand also some visits from a kingfisher. Great day in Bordeaux , easy to park and visited the same day markets anda great pottery display at Pujols. Sarlat-la-Caneda- long way but worth the trip as well as Saint-Cirq-Lapopie about 2 hrs away.

Didnt manage the night markets but thanks for all the information.


September Nick & Mags Bragg

Well what can I say…… my standards have always been high and cleanliness at Gone Fishin was top class. Wonderful quaint villages , great markets and historical sites. And the peace and quiet wonderful . Thank you both
