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!

A hidden gem in the countryside outside Sarlat

4 of 5
We’ve visited Sarlat and the surrounding areas many times during the last 20 years, and each time we’ve stayed in a different Bed & Breakfast or Gite. None of our prior rental experiences even come close to our stay at La Benechie. Everything was superb……The setting, the peaceful environment, the wonderful bed, the excellent linens, the fully equipped kitchen (including super sharp knives which are usually non-existent in a rental property), the large patio with table and chairs. Although the pool was not yet open during ours stay, we did soak up the last hours of afternoon sun while lounging on couches on the poolside covered patio. Total decadence after long days out and about! Ellen and Arnie are fabulous hosts, and are adept at handling the smallest detail, while giving their guests a sense of complete privacy. We celebrated my husband’s birthday one morning with a delicious breakfast prepared by Arnie, that was served in our gite on a beautifully set table prepared by Ellen. We really enjoyed our stay, and plan to return to La Benechie once more this year.
