Thank you Linda and George!

5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed in gites and cottages many times, but both agreed that our stay at Butterfly cottage was the best of all! Perigord is a wonderful place to visit, of course, and the cottage was ideally placed to enjoy it without having to drive too far. Linda and George were marvellous hosts, and nothing was too much trouble....when I unpacked my case after the holiday, it was full of Linda's hand written direction sheets! Thank you both for making such a huge effort to assure we enjoyed our stay! Thanks too to Dimitri for cooking us a wonderful meal in the cottage one evening...it was memorable!

Enjoyable Stay in Bordeaux

4 of 5
Property was easy to find. The location was very pleasant adjacent to the park and with easy access to public transport and by walking to the city centre. Flat was comfortable with everything that you need for a stay. Claude was very helpful and provided lots of useful information. The lack of nearby suitable eating places (until probably Chartron) was a bit of a drawback but overall this did not impair the enjoyment of our stay.
