Overall everything about the area & the gite made this a very memorable holiday for us & our dog & without any hesitation we highly recommend it. Kay & Stuart , Blairgowrie , Scotland

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

It sleeps up to 10 persons comfortably. Every cottage has its own part of the property and your privacy is assured. The Turn is a home away from home. It has everything you could need or want and is lovingly furnished by the hospitable owner. The kitchen is a dream for foodies and the view from the terrace under the pergola where you enjoy your meal is stunning. The property is situated about 3 kilometers from Thenon, a village that has all the basic amenities. You can visit lots of wonderful old villages and towns within easy driving distance. We had a wonderful stay, toured the region, enjoyed our private pool and cooked lots af great food that we bought at the local markets and prepared 'at home'. Two weeks was much to short really!
