Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Sarlat - The Butterfly Cottage Sarlat

French Dordogne style,1 bedroom cottage sleeps 3, near Sarlat and Les Eyzies

WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE BUTTERFLY COTTAGE WAS CHOSEN BY HOME AWAY AS ONE OF THEIR TOP TEN MOST ROMANTIC PROPERTIES IN EUROPE FOR 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2013.

The Butterfly Cottage at Les Hirondelles is located in the heart of the Dordogne in the center of what is considered the golden triangle. We are just 6kms to Les Eyzies the worlds centre of pre-history & the famous Font de Gaume caves, and only 20 minutes to the wonderful medieval town of Sarlat. So, you have the best of both worlds here at Les Hirondelles with being close to everything, but sleeping & relaxing in the beautiful countryside with only the sounds of peace & quiet.

The cottage over looks a large courtyard with a beautiful Mulberry tree that sits in the center. The courtyard is your own private area to relax in and enjoy watching our famous swallows fly in and out of the barn door or cook up a barbeque with your own private gas grill. Inside the cottage are beautiful wood floors and all the modern conveniences of home. There is a quaint fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast table and bar stools. The living and dining room area is one great room. The living room has 2 comfy reclining leather chairs and lovely sofa to relax on. The custom made sofa is a sleeper bed for the possibility of having a third guest. The dining room has a wonderful large bar top table that seats up to 4 persons. The bathroom is down stairs and is fully updated with a new rainfall shower. The spacious master bedroom is upstairs with a beautiful wood beam ceiling, wood floors, and a heavenly California King size bed.

This is a charming property full of character, and beautifully furnished. You have the feel of the 17th century, but all the upgrades and comfort of home. There is a gorgeous garden to relax in and read a book, or take a nap in the swing. How about a swim in a refreshing salt water heated pool, or a romantic evening in the Jacuzzi hot tub over looking the green Dordogne countryside. So whether you are a couple on your honeymoon, friends on vacation, or a family wanting some quality time together, there is something for everyone to enjoy at The Butterfly Cottage at Les Hirondelles.

So here we are in France and in love with this area!! We think you will feel the same once you visit, and we hope to see you soon!! Please call or e-mail us if you have any additional questions or need any additional information.

About Linda Plakiotis

My husband & I are originally from Florida. We moved to France 4 1/2 years ago, and are loving every minute of it. This is our 5th season renting The Butterfly Cottage as a self catering property. We have a 5 star ranking, and all our guests agree we are the best of the best! If you read our reviews, I am all about making my guests happy, down to the smallest things. We are usually fully booked by the end of each season, so keep an eye on my calendar, I update it daily. We have been very fortunate to have many returning guests year after year, and guests that recommend us to their family, friends, and co-workers which is the highest complement someone can give us. We love inviting people into our home, and helping them experience the sights and sounds of this beautiful and amazing region. So, we welcome you to The Butterfly Cottage, and hope that you come join us, and enjoy France!!

Why Linda Plakiotis chose Sarlat

Location, location, location!!! All my guests agree we are in the center of paradise. Privacy, peace, and quiet!! Away from it all, but with everything close by. You have a romantic cottage to relax and enjoy, but within 5 to 20 minutes you can see so many fascinating and historical sites in the Perigord Noir. There is so much to see and do in our area, that you could stay for a month and not see it all. There are beautiful village's and chateaux's to explore; the Dordogne and Vezere rivers offering fishing and canoeing; as well as superb restaurants and shops. There are numerous vineyards of Bergerac for wine enthusiasts and there is a different local market situated in a nearby village or town for every day of the week. This is a wonderful cottage to enjoy and relax in, has all the amenities you could want, and close to everything. We hope to see you soon!!.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Dordogne is by far my favourite area in Southwest France. The surrounding areas of the cottage are naturally beautiful with rich farmland and rolling hills. There is lots to do and see in the area. Kayaking down the Dordogne was a highlight, as was eating at the many world class restaurants in the different villages. I spent my spring vacation at this wonderful cottage. It is beautifully decorated with fantastic furniture. The king size bed is particularly comfortable all lined with crisp French linen. The mornings are best spent eating croissants and drinking coffee overlooking the beautiful gardens. The afternoons are best spent relaxing on the sun loungers and reading by the large exquisite pool. The cottage is equipped with everything you may possibly need during your stay. In the evening, the pool and Jacuzzi area provides an excellent viewpoint to watch the sunset whilst enjoying some of the finest wine from the nearby vineyards. The owners provide excellent planning, directions and information needed to fully explore the area. The photographs on the website provide only a snapshot of the beautiful property! I highly recommend this to all readers.

PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
While searching for a place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary near Bordeaux/Saint-Emilion, we happened onto 'The Butterfly Cottage'. How lucky were we to find an available week in Carmensac! The cottage is perfect, the area beautiful, but Linda and George, and Roosevelt too, are like family! Their knowledge of places to see, experiences to enjoy, and anything else you can think of are amazing! Chef Dimitri made our celebration perfect with a beautiful meal cooked right before us.
Can not wait to return to PARADISE!

Amazing honeymoon in a beautiful cottage

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage is beautiful, in its own courtyard and filled with everything you would need or want - Linda and George even provide robes for the short walk to the pool and jacuzzi! The property is immaculately maintained and the location is beyond idyllic. Linda and George take so much time to think of everything for their guests, not just whilst at Les Hirondelles but also help with recommendations for places to go, parking tips to avoid stress and reservations at restaurants you would never find without their local knowledge! Describing Linda and George's 'customer service' feels strange, as you aren't treated like customers but as welcome and valued friends. We could not recommend Les Hirondelles more highly.

BUTTERFLIES, SWALLOWS AND MORE!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I had the most wonderful week at Les Hirondelles. Linda and George are the perfect hosts. They made our visit even more special with their excellent recommendations for castles, markets and gardens to visit, and bicycling routes. We won't forget our anniversary dinner (cooked by Dimitri) under the beautiful Mulberry Tree. For all of the traveling that we have done over the years this beautiful little cottage ranks as one of the very best!

Fabulous week at The Butterfly Cottage at Les Hirondelles

  • 5 out of 5
We rented this cottage for a week, and it was better than we had ever hoped for! The location can't be beat - it is 15-30 minutes from all the very best sights of the Dordogne/Perigord region. The cottage is new and well-equipped with all the comforts of home. The grounds are absolutely beautiful with a heated pool and jacuzzi. One of the highlights of the rental is the owners - George & Linda are extremely helpful and so friendly that you feel like family. We hired a local chef - Dimitri - to come in and cook for us which was a special treat. He must be booked in advance as he is in great demand. We loved coming back to the cottage in the afternoons to sit on our lovely patio with a book and a glass of wine in a very peaceful setting. We would highly recommend The Butterfly Cottage!!!

PARADISE FOUND AT THE BUTTERFLY COTTAGE

  • 5 out of 5
We were in paradise for the second time after two years!! Linda and George keep their beautiful property in excellent condition, and in addition they are always upgrading and adding improvements to make their guests feel even more comfortable. In the last 2 years since we were there, they have enlarged the gardens with 2 new fish ponds, a sunset swing, and a outdoor shower for the pool & hot tub.

The property is very relaxing, peaceful, and quite. It's also nice that Linda & George are always there to give you any help needed during your stay, as well as lots of advice for day trips and for sightseeing in the region, but respect your privacy too.

The landscape is very lovely in the Dordogne, you can enjoy the many historical sites, chateaus, gardens, and outdoor markets ("our favorites" St. Cyprien and Le Bugue), as well as many restaurants with an excellent food!!!

We are looking forward to coming back to Les Hirondelles very soon!!! Here we feel at home!!!

"WONDERFUL WEEK IN THE DORDOGNE"

"WONDERFUL WEEK IN THE DORDOGNE"
  • 5 out of 5
We had an absolutely WONDERFUL week at the Butterfly Cottage!!

George & Linda we want to thank you for your hospitality, and for making us feel more like friends rather than just "renters"!

The Butterfly Cottage was even better than we could have imagined!! The fresh eggs from the chickens were delicious, Dimitri the "French chef" was incredible, and the weather was perfect!! We could have not wished for more. Linda's day trip recommendations are the BEST!! She even scheduled a hair appointment for me with Christine at Jumiline Hair Salon in St. Cyprien, which I loved.

Les Hirondelles (The Swallow's) is AMAZING, and is in such a beautiful area of France. There are so many wonderful places to explore, and things to do, just minutes from the cottage. I hope we get the opportunity one day to return here in the future, and if not, we will always treasure the memories we made here!!

Best wishes to you both, and thanks again for everything!!

We are within a short driving distance of many fascinating historical sites, such as Les Eyzies and the caves at Montignac and the beautiful medieval town of Sarlat. There are stunning villages and châteaux to explore as well as the Dordogne and Vezere rivers offering fishing and canoeing. For wine enthusiasts we are close to the vineyards of the Bergerac area for wine-tasting expeditions and of course there are plenty of superb restaurants to experience the local cuisine. There is also a different local market situated in a nearby village or town for every day of the week. Sarlat throughout the summer has an extensive program of music, arts, night markets, fairs and activities for all ages. The town of Sarlat has a wonderful food market each Wednesday and Saturday. Also Le Bugue offers an organic market on Tuesday and St Cyprien on Sunday. For outdoor activities: cliff climbing, hot air ballooning, zip lining, flying, kayaking, canoeing, cycling, golfing, hiking, and hundreds of châteaux's and caves to explore.
