                                                                                                      We chose the Butterfly Cottage for a relaxing break after a busy year getting married and moving house. We couldn't have made a better choice. Linda and George's (and Roosevelt's!) hospitality was second to none - they were integral to ensuring our stay was as enjoyable as possible. As we're keen bikers, the weather during the week was perfect - sunny and around 24 degrees and we managed to clock up over 160km during the course of our holiday. The bike rides themselves were fantastic thanks to George who plotted the routes using his local knowledge of the area. We can particularly recommend the ride which took us past a number of beautiful chateaus. The pool and jacuzzi were perfect for unwinding after a long day on the bikes - and the heated pool is a real luxury in mid September! Another highlight of the week was Dmitri, the local chef who came to cook for us one evening. We both agree that it was the best meal we've ever had (and that's including Michelin starred restaurants!) - my soufflé and scallop starter was delicious, and the apple tart dessert simply divine! Dmitri is a must for anyone staying at the Butterfly Cottage - you won't regret it! We can't wait to return in the near future. Sophie & Doug

Et værtspar, der hele tiden er imødekommende og hjælpsomme, så man får det bedste ud af sin ferie. Vi har boet i en lejlighed i en ombygget tobakslade, med udsigt ud over Dordogne dalen og vi har boet i et lille charmerende hus, der oser af fransk atmosfære, både med hensyn til indretningen og den omkringliggende have. Omkring Tremolat har vi nydt at gå lange ture i naturen og besøge diverse små restauranter og cafeer, så enten du er til badeferie ved swimmingpoolen, på opdagelse i det historiske landskab, besøge gamle historiske byer eller tager en tur på torvet og oplever den fortættede atmosfære, så er Tremolat at anbefale. Det er ikke sidste gang at vi tager til Tremolat for at bo hos Elisa og Arne!

Pool is spotlessly clean and a welcome addition with lots of seating around it. Lovely little private courtyard for alfresco dining. The farm is in beautiful surroundings and so many beautiful villages to discover but is quite remote so a car is absolutely essential. On the plus side it is very very peaceful and star gazing is amazing! Would definitely consider staying again 😀.
