From the pictures, we were expecting the property and grounds to be lovely (and had spent a long time searching for a holiday property) but it was even better than we imagined. We had a very warm welcome from Dave, Katie and the children (complete with wine and nibbles) and felt immediately at home. There was everything we needed for a relaxing holiday and, importantly for us, the property had everything we needed to keep a toddler safe and well looked after: stair gates around the terrace, a highchair and a very sweet children's bedroom with a travel cot. Our daughter absolutely loved running around the gardens, feeding the chickens and having a miniature tractor ride with the children and ducks! The surrounding area had plenty to offer - lots to see and do. This is clearly a property that has been very thoughtfully and carefully renovated and maintained and having such friendly and helpful hosts (and playmates for our daughter!) was a real bonus. We will definitely be returning!

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

It was clean, very near to all the town's amenities , and well kitted out with everything we could want. The bed was very comfortable, and the only outside noise we experienced was on Friday evening, but it all went quiet after about 10.30 pm. The lady who showed us in was very helpful, and we would love to stay again if we are in that area.
