July 2020 (Griffon) - B&S + 5 from Domfront-en-Champagne, France
Beau gîte disposant de tous les équipements requis pour un séjour familial. La vue est tout simplement superbe, que ce soit de la terrasse privative ou du jardin partagé. Nous nous sommes sentis très privilégiés de séjourner à Cantobre, village préservé du tourisme de masse, qui est une véritable pépite dans la région. L’accueil de Peggy et de Lionel est professionnel et amical, avec cette pointe d’humour anglais qui fait toute la différence.

October 2019 (Griffon) - B, A, S & L from Redhill, Surrey, England
We’ve had a great week. Thanks for everything including carrying the cases and showing us where the eagles and vultures are. Got a nice photo of one of them, don’t know which? Had a lovely drive over the Cévennes National Park to the Chauvet Caves at Vallon Pont D’Arc. Well worth seeing the 35,000 year old cave drawings! Down south we visited Bouzigues (for oysters) and Noilly Prat at Marseillan. The Gite is splendid. Looking down on the tops of trees. Wow!
September 2019 (Egyptian) - P&C from Toulouse, France
Superbe accueil de nos hôtes anglais, très belle région avec un gîte somptueux. Nous espérons goûter à l’hospitalité Irlandaise un jour prochain... Merci pour votre sourire! À bientôt
September 2019 (Egyptian) - J&Y B from Plechatel, France
8 ans que nous revenons toujours avec le même bonheurs. Merci Peggy et Lionel de nous recevoir dans ce Gite avec votre gentillesse et votre bienveillance. Milles bisous à vous deux et à Midge. À l’année prochaine
September 2019 (Egyptian) - A&S K from Kirkcaldy, Scotland
Relaxing and unforgettable holiday. Thank-you to Peggy and Lionel for a superb time. It’s lovely to come on holiday and find somewhere with everything you could need - from salt to hand-soap, a Hoover that and great showers. What a garden too!! BBQs and sitting on the terrace - vulture spotting by day and star-gazing at night. Highly recommend the walks to St Sulpice and through the woods to Roc of Nant. * Also a trip to Millau viaduct and the fabulous Montpellier Le Vieux. Merci Beaucoup to Peggy, Lionel and Midge Best Wishes A & S K, Scotland *Amazing Butterflies
September 2019 (Griffon) - P & M from Frankfurt, Germany
Like last year it was again a wonderful stay. We love the magic of the place, the wonderful landscape and the splendid view - and we thank our friendly and caring host for making us feel so much at home!
August 2019 (Egyptian) - J & J from Epsom, England
We have had a wonderful stay here in Cantobre. Everything and anything you can think of is supplied and it makes our stay so comfortable and relaxing. The view from the terrace will be remembered always! First time in the area, don’t think it will be the last. Best wishes and thanks.
August 2019 (Griffon) - L &... from Pau, France
Super séjour pour découvrir le Larzac avec les copains! Merci à Peggy et Lionel pour l’accueil dans ce très joli gîte .
July 2019 (Griffon) - P&V L from Dorset, England
A fantastic stay. We could not have been happier - we will be back. Many thanks.
July 2019 (Egyptian) - G, S, W & L from Ghent, Belgium
Dear Peggy and Lionel. What a fantastic welcome! We appreciated Lionel’s help with our bags and enjoyed the elaborate tour around the gîte. Very funny and nice. We only stayed here for 4 days, much too short even though we had a fair share of bike rides (steep hills to climb!), did lots of swimming (in La Dourbie, at the municipal pool in Millau and in the Tarn at St Rome Plage) and played some tennis in Trèves. Only a few moments left to play the mandolin, but no time to play in the lovely church. WE SURE WOULD LIKE TO COME BACK. Best wishes to Midge, your lovely dog.
June 2019 (Egyptian) - G & C G from Darvel, Scotland
Wonderful 24 days here in Cantobre with Lionel and Peggy. Lovely hosts, enjoyed several evenings with them and the wine flowed...... especially Lionel’s. This is our third visit in past 6 years and we were not disappointed. Lionel and Peggy’s top garden was a kingdom of butterflies attracted by the lavender. Enjoyed watching the butterflies and the vultures - two ends of the flying kingdom species. Weather was absolutely wonderful. Hot, sunny weather throughout - with only one day when we had torrential rain. We will be back, God willing.
June 2019 (Egyptian) - V & C O from Emsworth, England
Another wonderful stay in Cantobre. What keeps drawing us back? Well, there’s the comfortable Gîte, Peggy and Lionel’s generous hospitality and helpful tips on what to see and where to eat. There’s the unforgettable view from the terrace of the Egyptian, the walks, the stunning flowers, the dragon flies showing off their colours along the streams of Nant, the air, the quiet - that’s probably enough of an answer. Thanks again P & L.
June 2019 (Egyptian) - S & P B from Lincoln, England
Well, here we are again at the end of our third holiday here with Lionel & Peggy - our first in the Egyptian gîte. There is everything necessary provided for a self-catering break - including all washing and cleaning products. Their knowledge of the area is great so if you need to know something - just ask! At this time of the year the orchids are amazing and the birds are zipping about feeding their young. Retirement looms next year but all being well we hope to get down here again - hopefully in the Egyptian. Keep up the good work Lionel & Peggy - it’s much appreciated. Hope to see you next year S & P xx
May 2019 (Egyptian) - E & A from Hornby, England
To our amiable and attentive hosts Peggy and Lionel. Thanks for making our stay really comfy and for letting us stay in your lovely Egyptian gîte. A great and well stocked gîte with everything you could ever need except sharp knives. We bought some steak knives so that problem is solved. We enjoyed you company particularly the drinks shared on your Griffon terrace - super evenings. Shame about the weather the last few days, although we did have a wet walk down to The Moulin. Lots to do and see, orchids, butterflies and vultures, and helping to carry the luggage was a plus and earned you Brownie Points. We’ve had a great time in spite of Enid’s shoulder. Thanks once again - E and A.
May 2019 (Griffon) - C, P, T from Clermont Fd. France
Séjour bref et pluvieux , mais paysage splendide, accueil chaleureux et un bon moment entre copains !
May 2019 (Griffon) - M, A & M from Melbourne, Australia

April 2019 (Egyptian) - M, S & L-A from Morangis, France
Merci Peggy et Lionel pour votre accueil et votre disponibilité.Nous garderons un souvenir inoubliable de ce magnifique endroit et d’un gîte où tout a été pensé pour le bien de ses occupants. Un lieu authentique où il fait bon y vivre avec un bonus la gentillesse de ses hôtes. Au plaisir de revenir dans ce superbe gîte !!
March 2019 (Egyptian) - T & B from Albuquerque, USA
After having lived in France for 5 years almost 20 years ago, this trip was to be a rediscovery "recon" mission. Your gîte, location and hospitality made our trip a success and has left us looking forward to more in the future. Cantobre is an ideal setting for reflection , relaxation , rejuvenation and Rock Climbing. We will return with family. Thank you for everything that you have created and share with your guests. Peace, T & M
February 2019 (Egyptian) - A, D, E & C from Papenburg, Germany
On va malheureusement vous dire que le lieu très agréable, la vue Just Beautiful, pas très original tout cela. J’espère que nous aurons le plaisir de se revoir. Encore merci pour l’accueil. A, D & E
Thanks a lot for everything, it was perfect ! Hope to come back here some day. C.
October 2018 (Griffon) - V & C O from Emsworth, England
We’re never disappointed by our visits here - so many thanks for all you do for us - and one day the sun will shine again!
October 2018 (Egyptian) - O & H from Papenburg, Germany
Dear Peggy dear Lionel,
This is a daring comment from a German on our 3 week stay here, but as almost everything about this wonderful place is already said by so many visitors before, I will try it this way:
Passing the Dourbie bridge
You’ll get to Peggy, Lionel and Midge
They offer two gîtes
Which meet all of your needs
The only question is which?
A couple that stays in Cantobre
From September to midst October
Almost always has fun
To the end rarely sun
But it’s not over til it’s over !
So, people , take my advice
And you’d better not think twice
Give yourself a chance
In that part of France
At the Haines’ it’s awfully nice !
Thankyou so much Peggy and Lionel!
H. and E.
September 2018 (Griffon) - M, S & M from Truro, England
What more is there to say - Where is there anywhere more beautiful and peaceful? The scenery is so amazing and varied, the villages are authentic, the people are friendly and Castel de Cantobre - including Peggy, Lionel and Midge are just lovely !
August 2018 (Egyptian) - S & A from Ittre, Belgium
Juste l’endroit qu’il nous fallait pour être loin du bruit et du monde. Pendant toute la semaine nous avons imaginé ce que nous pourrions faire ici. 365 jours/ans lire , peindre, écrire, xxxxx, broder, coudre, tisser, faire de la poterie. Tout ce dont je vive pour ma part et puis finira pour arriver. Qui a endroit resté surtout comme il est, juste parfait. Merci pour le charmant accueil dans votre paradis, S et A.
August 2018 (Egyptian) - I & S from Germany
Dear Lionel and Peggy, It was our second stay here and again we enjoyed it from the first till the last minute. The beautiful walks around with the wonderful views! And for me the perfect place to do some Yoga !!! Thank you for your hospitality, Merci S.
And my third stay, and, I hope not the last, Thanks, I.
July 2018 (Griffon) - M, C, L, R from Belgium
We had a wonderful stay at the nicest gîte of the village on top of a rock ! It has a wonderful garden where we enjoyed the butterflies and birds singing. The views of the valleys are marvelous. Thanks to Peggy and Lionel for their warm welcome, many tips and stories. All info you need can be found on their elaborated website, Great ! Walking cards and GPS all available on site. Many thanks, Sad to drive home again..
July 2018 (Egyptian) - M&S, P&C from North Berwick, Scotland & Samoens, France
Wonderful to be back on familiar ground and to catch up with Lionel and Peggy, and other friends in the village. Superb weather and our favourite views! The apartment is perfect and cool! A lovely week.
June 2018 (Griffon) - J&F H, S&W B, L&L K from Scotland, England & Cape Town
We’ve just spent a super week at Lou Castel. Peggy and Lionel, you are superb hosts and very caring of our needs and comforts. The views are amazing, the location is awesome. We’ve spent relaxing, happy hours outside on the patio "under the rock"! Another very enjoyable feature is the "sunken garden". Thank you so much for your hospitality!
June 2018 (Griffon) - Groupe Narbonne Randonée et Montagne from Narbonne, France
Merci pour votre accueil très chaleureux, le confort de votre gîte, vous avez vraiment pensé à tout, ce qui prouve votre souci de rendre compte notre séjour très agréable. Nous vous en sommes très reconnaissantes! We are very grateful and we are convinced we have to come back! M. and the girls.
May 2018 (Griffon) - S & P B from Lincoln, England
This is our second visit - last year we said we would be back! Our expectations have once again been exceeded. What a wonderful special place - made all the more so by Lionel and Peggy’s unique and friendly attitude. Thank you both. We can thoroughly recommend the house produce. At the risk of repeating ourselves - we will be back!
May 2018 (Egyptian) - V & C O from Emsworth England
After a few days here I no longer know the date! Time stands still even as the precious days speed by. How we have enjoyed the continual thunder storms and all the torrential rain. It has been wonderfully cool and we have been able to do such unusually strenuous things. This really is like nowhere else on earth - and we hope, yet again, to be back .
May 2018 (Egyptian) - J & J M from Gard, France
Un gîte magnifique dans un cadre exceptionnel! Dépaysement garanti. Plaisir de découvrir la nature et profiter de l’instant présent... Sans parler de la grande gentillesse des hôtes!

Prenez soin de vous Peggy et Lionel et belle vie à votre compagnon à quatre pattes!

Thank you Lionel and Peggy for being such helpful and supportive hosts. We really appreciated you contacting medical services for us and arranging appointments. Our accident at the start of the holiday curtailed our adventures - BUT will ensure that we must return to complete them fully. The Gorges, wildlife and welcome from yourselves makes this an unforgettable holiday.
April 2018 (Egyptian) - G, A & O T from Widmer End, UK
Our second stay here and we enjoyed it even more than the first. Thank you Lionel and Peggy for your hospitality. The gîte is fantastic - very well equipped and in such a beautiful location we have enjoyed our walks around the village with Oscar. The surrounding are has such amazing scenery and history and there is so much to see and do. The caves (Aven Armand, Dargilan, Demoiselles) are some of the best we have seen anywhere. Thank you so much once again, Lionel and Peggy - you have such a great home here and have made it an unforgettable place to stay. We will no doubt return in the future, Best wishes.

Our stay has provided us with the getaway we needed. Hope to return some day!
October 2017 (Griffon) - M-C & B, D & G, N & P from Sussargues, Montpellier & Rastau, France
Nous avons adoré le “voiture-ascenseur”!! Tout est merveilleux: le gîte, le panorama, l’accueil. ET même sur 6 jours le météo s’est mise au diapason! Le soleil pour s’illumine les couleurs de l’automne. Merci et peut-être à une prochaine fois le boulodrome: fantastique!
Pour passer un week end avec des amis (de vrais) on ne faut pas rêver mieux. Gîte magnifique, gîte accueillent, temps splendide ! Nous reviendrons ! Merci

Another very enjoyable holiday here, even if the weather wasn’t as good as last time (Sept 2015).
Thank you very much Lionel & Peggy for your warm welcome and the "aperos"!! - and for being a mine of information.
July 2017 (Griffon) - Famille C. from Boutigny-sur-Essonne, France
Gîte avec vue magnifique sur la vallée de la Dourbie ! Très belles randonnées à faire. Un grand merci à Peggy et Lionel pour l’accuueil très chaleureux. A une prochaine fois !!
July 2017 (Egyptian) - J & G from Devon, England
Thank you Peggy and Lionel for your warm welcom and quite the best equipped gîte we have ever encountered. Fabulous situation, amazing area. Boulangerie patisserie in Nant terrific, beautiful town, so well kept and cared for. Bird life very interesting, no need to go further than the terrace it all comes to you! Thanks again for a great holiday.
July 2017 (Griffon) - I, J & J from Neu-Anspach, Germany
Would I be a British bird
I would fly to the Cévennes
Might it last until it hurts
I would eventually see it then

And if I then would be carried high
By the warm wind, stroking the hills
Up, up into the french-blue sky
With peace my heart and soul fills

So what is your homeland, actually ?
Is it where you came from, years ago ?
It is where you can be, and be free
And want to return to, and never again go.

There is a place where all is well
Out there in France called Lou Castel
If you are walking up and ring the bell
You are heartily welcomed by Peggy & Lionel !

Keep this place forever, Lionel & Peggy !
June 2017 (Griffon) - S, P & M from Lincoln, England
Came here with special friends. Truely a magical place! Life changing moment while here for me, shared with S, P, Lionel & Peggy. Never to be forgotten, maybe to relive, we’ll see what next year brings. M.
What a wonderful find!! The gîte is well equipped and views from the terrace and garden are breathtaking. Lionel & Peggy couldn’t have been more helpful and we much appreciate their knowledge of the area, local flora & fauna. We will be back! S & P.
June 2017 (Egyptian) - A & M from Valais, Suisse

May 2017 (Griffon) - H & J from Okehampton, Devon, England
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in your lovely gîte on top of the world! You are great hosts and so nice to meet someone from good old Belfast! We so enjoyed the scenery and especially the butterflies and birds and lovely unspoiled countryside! With our love and best wishes, H.
We stayed in Lou Castel, Cantobre for the "rocky outcrop experience", the wildlife (birds and butterflies) and geocaching (a kind of world-wide, hi-tech hide & seek), and we were not disappointed. Furthermore, Lionel & Peggy’s knowledge of local fauna & flora and, yes, even geocaching, was an unexpected bonus! resulting in many fascinating conversations about vultures (vautours), choughs, midwife toads that go "boop-boop-boop" at night and... you name it. Peggy and Lionel’s garden is full of unique & pleasing features, each item usually a conversation piece in itself. Ask about the head looking out of the old sink! I managed to take lots of photos of butterflies, day-flying moths, birds and views of the surrounding countryside without leaving our "eerie" retreat. Out and about in the area, whether on top of the causses or in the clear-water river valleys, there’s so much to see. Thank you Peggy & Lionel for being such funds of knowledge, humour and helpful kindness. Keep up the excellent work for your guests and, of course, in that wonderful garden and vegetable plot. H. and J. B. P.S. If you are a birdwatcher NEVER go outside without your binoculars!
July 2016 (Griffon) - C, K, G, C, Z, C & M from St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England
We had a wonderful stay here at Lionel & Peggy’s chateau! Lovely accomodation, beautiful views, very very relaxing environment and with interest for all ages!

June 2016 (Egyptian) - M & E from Dorset, England
We have had a lovely week here in Cantobre. The weather was kind to us and the ’rainbow’ was very beautiful and atmospheric. The views from the balcony are spectacular. We have cooked up some great meals in your well equipped kitchen and have enjoyed all the thoughtful facilities you have provided from FreeSat T.V. to Garmin assisted walks in the countryside. We even spotted the vultures! You have been so kind and friendly it has been a pleasure getting to know you.

Thank you so much for your hospitality - a beautifully equipped gîte in a spectacular location. We will miss the nightingales + vultures, and the incredible landscapes + wild flowers. We kept hoping to see the wild boar again, but hopes she brings up her 5 little hogs successfully. Sad to leave... With best wishes...
May 2016 (Egyptian) - K&D, M&B from Ostroleka, Poland
Thank you very much for your welcome and help. The gîte very much came up to and above our expectations. Its quite overwhelming when you first see the village (how do people live there, how did they manage to build it are the first things that come to mind). We’ve had a super week with good weather, it will stay in our minds for a long time. Once again thanks.
April 2016 (Griffon) - C & A from Lincoln, England

Agréable séjour sur un magnifique nid de vautour (Égyptien). Merci pour votre accueil et votre gentillesse.

Encore merci et peut-être à une autre fois.

What a lovely week we’ve had at your gîte. We’d brought books and games and instead we have spent hours just sitting on the terrace and gazing at the beautiful view down the valley.

Nous conserverons toujours un excellent souvenir de ce séjour commencé dans la pluie et le froid et élèvé sous un bon soleil. Un grand merci à nos hôtes pour leur accueil chaleureux et la qualité de leur hébergement. Un petit rapprochement semble possible entre Cantobre et Cantobury. Affaire à creuser. Bon courage pour tout, chers hôtes, et à une autre année peut-être.
April 2015 (Egyptian) - G, A & O from High Wycombe, England
Thank you, Peggy & Lionel, for a fantastic week. The accommodation is just perfect and Cantobre is a unique and picturesque village. We have loved looking at the 360° views on our walks around the village. Thank you for arranging the vet appointment for us and for being such welcoming and informative hosts. We have done a lot of travelling around this week - and a lot of walking - mostly uphill! We will certainly be going back home fitter! We will definitely return to Cantobre again.

Many thanks for all your friendly help and arranging the vet’s and booking the restaurant, and generally making life easy for us. We’ve travelled around a lot and done some great walks, up to the very scenic mill at Source de la Foux from Navacelles was good, as was Arcs St. Pierre; but probably best of all is sitting on the terrace in the sun with a beer (or wine!) and watching the vultures, eagles, choughs, serins, black redstarts etc etc. Hope to return soon.

October 2014 (Griffon) - P & H from Munich & Bochum, Germany
The Lou Castel gîtes were a good starting point for different tours, e.g. looking at Mont Aigoual, the Gorges de la Jonte (vultures!), La Cavalerie... But we also enjoyed walking in the hills around Nant, a small town well worth a visit (la boulangerie & Grosskopf!!). Autumn in Cantobre, we can recommend it! We enjoyed our 17 day stay in the holiday gîtes of Peggy and Lionel a lot. In the evenings we looked at the magnificent starry sky and detected the Milky Way! In Autumn we took a lot of photos - haze in the morning, gorgeous light, especially in the late afternoon - we promise to send you some of our photos! We collected lots of chestnuts, walnuts and mushrooms and liked to prepare these delicacies for our dinner. Thanks very much to Peggy and Lionel.

Quite superb were the views,

And the nicest owners that you’ll meet.
