Well furnished throughout, and kept in very good order and very clean. We hope to return soon! Thank you! Nick and Nina

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

Basic little place but more than adequate. The people who own it are friendly and helpful although you don't see much of them. Do not go if you do not like cats and dogs as you will get visits from both. We had the place to ourselves for 4 weeks apart from the last night when a family moved in next door. Not sure how peaceful it would be in high season!! Our only gripe is the lack of contact with Homeaway - unless you are prepared to download the app, but we were not! We wanted to ask questions prior to arrival about what was available bedding wise so we knew what to take with us. We never got a response, and ended up taking a lot of stuff we didnt actually need - frustrating! However this was not the fault of the owners, it was Homeaway who carry our their business too remotely in our opinion. This is a lovely part of France with lots to see, beautiful scenery and great weather, even in October!!!
