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!

Excellent property in great location with friendly and helpful hosts

5 of 5
The property is a beautifully converted barn with all modern conveniences and appliances etc. The location is rural and therefore very peaceful - the loudest noise was perhaps the local cuckoo - but it is usefully close to a number of the area's attractions. Met and exceeded all expectations.
