We were met with a friendly and warm welcome from Linda and George. We traveled with parents and teenage children. The villa was very clean, spacious and perfect for our stay.The little extras Linda provides are so thoughtful, fresh eggs, milk, coffee, orange juice, wines, toiletries, and even bathrobes for every one. Linda tries to think of everything and goes above and beyond to try and make your stay perfect. The pool was a perfect way to cool off and relax after a day out sightseeing, and the views are so relaxing and beautiful. Plenty of room inside and out, with two very large patios for everyone to relax, plus a beautiful garden with lots of swings and benches to relax and read a good book. We could not have asked for a better centrally located place to enjoy the Dordogne, everything is literally minutes away. Looking forward to hopefully returning for a longer stay!

The Butterfly cottage is equipped with everything you could ever need. The owners came and greeted us and were continuously checking whether there was anything more they could do for us when we ran into them. If nothing else, stay in the cottage for the bed alone. It is one of the best nights sleep my husband and I have ever had vacationing! The location is perfect if you want a quiet, peaceful base from which to explore the rest of the Dordogne. We visited local villages and attractions, as well as going on local walks and hikes. We would also recommend Dimitri, the most amazing French Chef. The meal he prepared for us was absolutely superb, one of the great highlights of our trip. We can not say enough great things about the Butterfly Cottage that have not already been said by the many other great reviews! Truly amazing what Linda and George have created.
