South Dordogne and Plaisance

Whether the aim of your holidays be to relax, to tour around the area by car or visit on foot or bicycle, to discover our numerous historical sites, to participate in various sporting activities or sample the food and wine for which the Périgord is reputed, you will have an embarrassing choice to choose from.

The old ‘bastide’ towns of Eymet, Beaumont, Monflanquin, Monpazier (probably the best preserved) are all within close reach. Some of them were founded by the English and were much disputed over in the struggles of the Hundred Years War. Other medieval towns such as Bergerac and Issigeac charm the visitor with their little squares, half-timbered and stone houses and narrow streets.

Not to be forgotten are the numerous ‘châteaux’, be they castles, fortified houses or renaissance residences, which have so heavily marked our local history: Monbazillac, Lanquais, Duras, Lauzun, Beynac, Castelnau, Bonaguil, Biron amongst others.

For the children (and adults too!) there are a wide range of ‘bases de loisirs’, often situated by a lake, offering swimming, sporting and leisure activities for the whole family. Other sporting facilities and activities include canoeing, golf (Chateau de Vigiers, Castelnau, Tombeboeuf and Issigeac), rambling and cycling, ballooning, go-karting. In Plaisance there is the well-known, friendly riding stables ‘La Cavaille’.

Summer in this part of the Dordogne means village fairs and festivals: wine fairs, medieval festivals, village and barn fairs, antique and bric-a-brac fairs. A warm welcome is reserved for visitors.

Other beautiful sites, further afield in the Perigord, are nonetheless accessible in one or two hours’ drive: the underground caverns (grottes) of the Périgord Noir (such as Lascaux) home for Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon man, the enchanting medieval town of Sarlat, the wild country of the ‘causses’, the wine-famous town of St. Emilion, the industrious and historical Périgueux.

We had envisioned finding a lovely, old farmhouse surrounded by fields and rolling green hills but still having modern amenities. The Mulberry Tree Villa not only met these expectations, it far surpassed what we had hoped for. We all felt that this was our best vacation ever! The house itself was absolutely perfect for our two families. We were 4 adults and 4 kids ages 3 to 6. We had plenty of space and the sleeping arrangements were ideal. It was such a pleasure each morning to make our breakfast in the well-stocked kitchen, often using the fresh eggs that the kids had helped Linda or George collect from the chickens, and then enjoy it out on the patio looking over the countryside. While the property is situated in a beautiful and tranquil hamlet, we never had to travel more than 20 minutes to find something exciting to do. There are a surprising number of activities nearby ranging from medieval castles to prehistoric caves to markets. Many of our favorite activities were things we didn’t even know about before we came, but Linda is so incredibly helpful and has a wealth of information about the area. She was happy to sit down with us when we first arrived and tell us the best things to do and the best days to do them. We left feeling like there were still so many things that we didn’t get to see. Although the activities in the area were all exciting, even better were the simple things to do at the house. The kids enjoyed feeding the fish in the koi pond and collecting eggs from the chickens. We all loved the heated pool and hot tub. The gardens and sitting areas are so beautiful and peaceful, to spend the afternoons just reading a book or taking a nap. I can’t end my review without mentioning Chef Dimitri. The two meals that he cooked for us were the best we had our entire vacation, we are still talking about his incredible meals. We rarely go back to the same place more than once because we enjoy traveling to new places, but we all left the Dordogne already thinking about when we might be able to return. Linda and George did such a great job making us feel at home. We can’t wait to go back and visit again!

The Butterfly cottage is amazing and made even better with such great hosts George and Linda. As noted in the other reviews, the cottage is very spacious for a couple, spotlessly clean, and very well furnished, with a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious and comfortable sitting/dining area, a very spacious bathroom with a great shower, and a large bedroom with a very comfortable king bed and lots of closet/storage space. Everything about the cottage was very comfortable and thoughtfully arranged. The grounds are large and private, with lovely gardens throughout, a great heated chlorine free pool, a hot tub we used every night, and beautiful chickens that provide fresh eggs. Although the area is very quiet and peaceful it is not too remote, there are nearby markets and dozens of interesting sights nearby. What made our stay truly exceptional was the thoughtfulness and graciousness of our hosts. Linda and George are both very committed to make sure you have a wonderful time, both at the cottage and on your travels around the area. Linda took the time to give great and easy directions, sparing us from ever getting lost. We ended up having a much more relaxing time and being able to enjoy more sights very close to the cottage, while still making it home in time to enjoy cooking dinner with ingredients from the local markets. One night we had a wonderful dinner prepared by Chef Dimitri, who I would highly recommend as part of your stay. Both before and during our stay Linda and George were immediately accessible and responsive but not at all intrusive. We have been to France many times but had never been to the Dordogne before, and really enjoyed both the sights and its natural beauty. I cannot recommend the Butterfly Cottage highly enough as a base from which to explore the Dordogne (or to just relax). As you can see from their reviews, Linda and George haven’t disappointed anyone yet, and they made our stay an absolute delight.
