Guest Testimonials 


I will keep coming back to Mas De Garrigue. This is my 3rd time there and Steve and Sarah are the best host ever. For a bed and breakfast, Sarah and Steve will also provide an optional fantastic dinner. There is so much to see in the Lot River Valley and this is a great location as a home base to see it all. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable beds. A quick hint is to book directly with Mas De Garrigue because you will get a better choice for rooms.
