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

Comfortable beds and great showers. Great place for relaxing. Kitchen is small but has all you need. Friendly caretaker. Would benefit from a hairdryer and a fan for hot weather. Highly recommend.

It was clean, very near to all the town's amenities , and well kitted out with everything we could want. The bed was very comfortable, and the only outside noise we experienced was on Friday evening, but it all went quiet after about 10.30 pm. The lady who showed us in was very helpful, and we would love to stay again if we are in that area.
