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.

Linda & George 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!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our autumn week at the Butterfly Cottage. It is a cozy and comfortable house that is in a lovely rural setting, yet very close to villages, restaurants and historic sights. The owners are very knowledgeable and helpful, and they make you feel as welcome as invited guests. The option of having Dimitri a private chef who will prepare meals for you in the cottage is an added bonus, that will enhance your visit beyond belief. We highly recommend a stay here.

It was just out of the world, and also one of the most "luxurious stay" ever!
Lovely place. We wanted to relax during this vacation and did that in style. Linda recommended a French chef, Dmitri, who would cook for us and he was wonderful and very friendly. We had him cook for us three nights!! :). And also my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the food, the swimming pool and the chickens in the barn! Overall, Great place, Great people, Great ambience, Great cook! Will definitely come back and recommend them to everyone of my friends and family! Already recommended ;)
SEE YOU SOON, Linda and George, and THANK YOU!!

This cottage is perfect, spotlessly clean and very, very comfortable. The attention to detail on Linda and George's part is exceptional; from towelling robes and pool towels, a kitchen filled with everything you might need to a well stocked supply of DVD's, not to mention the divine bed!!! The view from the heated pool is spectacular and the surrounding garden with pond, hammock and hens provide this amazing rural setting. Linda and George cannot do enough for you to make your holiday outstanding with ideas for exploring the local area close-by and further a-field. There's something for everyone in the locality especially if you like canoeing, walking, cycling, caves or just relaxing! Entertainment from the resident swallows nesting in the barn and a constant supply of freshly laid eggs. What more would you want! There are many good restaurants, markets and shops nearby too.This was our second visit and it didn't disappoint, so much so we have already booked for next year!!! I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

A Fairytale Vacation

  • Review Submitted: 17-Sep-2013

From the second I heard back from Linda about my inquiry I knew I had found a home.
Not only are Linda, George and Roosevelt (the official greeter and gorgeous pet dog) like the family you wish you had, but the property is absolutely gorgeous too.
If you close your eyes and imagine where you would want to stay in the castle area of the Dordogne this would be it.
Linda is so helpful with on point suggestions on where to spend your time wisely (which also includes sitting at the pool on the grounds of the farm).
From lesser known castles, to fabulous and inexpensive restaruants, the recommendations are perfect. I even got my best haircut ever from the neighbor's daughter at
the local salon in St. Cyprien. If all this isn't enough, Dimitri is the real secret weapon. A private chef that comes to your door with a charming smile and custom order dream
meal to prepare for you. The place is truly a dream come true. Dear Linda & George, we hope to see you in the very near future. All the best, Margot (New York, U.S.A.)

A Top Notch Vacation Rental Near Sarlat

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 10-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: May 2013
This is an extremely charming one-bedroom house that combines original Renaissance architecture with all of the modern conveniences, including a well supplied kitchen, heated outdoor pool and many other amenities. It is centrally located in Périgord Noir, just a short drive from the Dordogne and Vezere rivers and most of the region's castles, hilltop villages, prehistoric caves and other attractions. The owners, Linda and George, live in an adjacent house on the property and were always available and very helpful and accommodating. We are certainly hoping to be able to return there in the near future.

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.
