About the property

3 bedrooms, large terrace with panoramic views, full kitchen and living room

The Le Papillon Bleu is an old farmhouse dating back to 1650 in the south of Limousin on the border of the Lot.

It has been lovingly restored with the whoosh to preserve the original rustic and yet to integrate the benefits of modernity.

Located in a small village (Guilles) with four other houses, located in a very relaxed and quiet atmosphere. It can be heard no traffic.

The plot is approximately 2000 square meters in size and offers in the summer apples, figs and various other fruits. In autumn there are a lot of walnuts.

The nearest supermarket is 5 minutes away by car or 15 minute walk. The nearest town (Beaulieu-Sur-Dordogne) 8 minutes by car. There are more shops and several cafes and restaurants, and wonderful swimming opportunities in the clean Dordogne (a small barrage has little flow and deep water).

The house includes three bedrooms, two beds with 180x200 mattress and a bed with a mattress 140x200 cm. When we use mattresses orthopedic foam mattresses with the Oeko-Tex certificate. The bedding is also completely made of Oeko-Tex Cotton.

The kitchen is equipped with a 6-burner gas stove with integrated electric oven and contains everything needed to cook at a high level. Also there is a large fridge freezer.

For the cold season there are two fireplaces, one in the dining room and one in the living room. In addition there are electric heaters and small gas burners.

The living room is furnished with a comfortable genuine leather couch and has a sophisticated ambience.

The whole house is fitted with high quality solid wood furniture that perfectly match with the ambience of the house.

A small music system is also available.

The large terrace (30 sqm) to the one coming from the dining room, is the ideal pied in the summer. On the day bed (200x100cm) is a great place to hold a small night nap or simply look into the distance, relax and unwind.

Overall, a wonderful place for lovers of nature and rusticity. A place to completely unwind and find yourself. Nestled in beautiful countryside and in an area which offers a variety of attractions and activities.

- Canoeing / kayaking on the Dordogne

- Swimming

- Bicycle tours

Why Maximilian Ruehle chose Ussel area

The house and the side buildings are all kept very authentic. The atmossphere is warm and comfortable. For fans of romantic and original country house style this is the perfect destination. Also the interior is selected to fit in this character. All furniture made of massive wood and are nice antiques.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The place is perfect for release from everyday stress. No traffic, no noise, no stress. We have deliberately no TV in the house and no WiFi. In our experience this encourages relaxation enormously.

Enjoy good food, cooking, reading, wines of the region, table board games and restful sleep. In addition, the region offers a variety of attractions and sporting activities.

Maison totalement conforme au descriptif !

Au calme, super terrasse ensoleillée.

Seul bémol, il manque un peu de lumière dans cette maison.

Merci !

Toller Familienurlaub mit Freunden

  • 5 of 5

Unser Urlaub war in Guilles wunderschön! Wir (2 Familien mit Kleinkindern und Babies) mochten das Ambiente des alten Hauses, die schöne Einrichtung und die sehr gute Ausstattung. Wir konnten gut kochen (5flammiger Gasherd, jede Menge Equipment, frischer Rosmarin im Garten und ein netter Markt in Beaulieu sD), lange Abende auf der Terasse unter einem atemberaubenden Sternenhimmel verbringen, viele Ausflüge an die Dordogne und in die Umgebung machen. Der Schnitt des Hauses war für unsere Bedürfnisse ideal. Auch die charmantische Mischung aus altem Gemäuer und ein teilweise improvisiertem Inneren machten das Haus für uns zu einer absoluten Wohlfühloase. Kindersicher ist das Haus und insbesondere die Terrasse jedoch nur bedingt, da muss man an manchen Stellen mit Krabbelkundern/Lauflernern schon gut aufpassen. Nichtsdestotrotz kommen wir bestimmt mal wieder!

Une maison fraîche bien agréable en temps de canicule !

La terrasse est un endroit charmant.

Herrliche Familienferien an der Dordogne

  • 5 of 5

Wir, eine vierköpfige Familie mit 2 Kleinkindern, haben 10 Nächte in diesem wundervoll rustikalen Ferienhaus verbracht, das eher an ein lebendes Museum erinnert. Die Ausstattung der Zimmer und der Küche, sowie die tolle Terrasse, übertrafen unsere Erwartungen. Die Lage des Objekts ist optimal, um die an Sehenswürdigkeiten reiche Region zu erkunden. Für uns als Familie stand v.a. die Nähe zum Badestrand an der Dordogne im Vordergrund, der sich in wenigen Autominuten erreichen lässt. Insgesamt eine tolle Erfahrung und uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert.
