About the property

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

A wide hilly landscape with dense forests and lush green meadows. Happy cows in the shade of trees, scattered flocks of sheep and beautiful rustic stone houses ... a picturesque landscape passes by as soon as you leave the highway. The heart of a romantic is on the direct path to paradise.

Soon after, you cross the town of Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne. Due to its idyllic, climatically favorable situation in the valley, between forest and meadows on the bank of the river, the place carries this name - which means rightly "beautiful place". In 8 minutes you have reached your destination. Cross the river Dordogne on a flowered bridge, pass the Intermarché supermarket and turn left shortly after. Now you drive uphill through a shady, light forest.

The aim is an old farmhouse from 1650, located in the southern department of Correze, right on the border with the Department of Lot. Le Papillon Bleu. It is a rustic stone house, belonging to a small village (Guilles) with four other houses. Slowly parked next to a small amphitheater, to the right an old stone fountain - as in a fairy tale. Wild tendrils grace the entrance of the Papillon Bleu, a large wooden door in friendly blue invites you to enter. A rustic kitchen with a large wooden table, stove and high ceiling is a welcome welcome ...

One has arrived. In Papillon Bleu, the perfect place to idleness. Arrived in a relaxed atmosphere away from any street noise and far away from a fast-paced world.


The property is about 2000sqm in size and offers apples, figs, peaches and walnuts in its wild garden.

The entire house has been lovingly restored, so that here you can find rustic flair combined with the benefits of modernity. High-quality solid wood furniture also emphasize the very special charm of the house.

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 eco-Tex cotton. Sleep like gods under the canopy.

The kitchen is equipped with a 6-burner gas hob with integrated electric oven and includes everything needed to prepare a fine French meal. Also there is a large fridge freezer.

On cold days, two fireplaces (in the dining room and in the living room) create cozy warmth. In addition, there are electric heaters and small gas heaters. Two comfortable sofas offer a cozy atmosphere in the living room. A small music system is also available.

The ideal place to stay in summer is the beautiful wooden terrace (about 30sqm) from which you can get from the dining room. Here, a large daybed (200x100cm) invites you to unwind and to look at the distance in the daytime and even in the stars at night.

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.

Sport activities:

- Canoeing / kayaking on the Dordogne

- Swimming

- Bicycle tours

maison pleine de charmes au sein d'un petit hameau merveilleusement situé à proximité d'Altillac.

  • 4 of 5

La demeure est ancienne et vraiment pleine de charmes, au sein d'un petit hameau d'une dizaine de maison située à 2 Km d'Altillac, près de Fontmerle. La région est superbe+++

Possibilité de belles promenades à pied et en vélo+++.

La maison est très bien décorée avec des beaux meubles de qualité et une literie irréprochable. De même pour les sanitaires. Cuisine à l'ancienne impeccable. Correspondants locaux parfaits.

La maison étant très ancienne, et noyée dans la verdure, elle gagnerait cependant à être mieux éclairée et mieux calfeutrée.

Un belle adresse convenant parfaitement pour deux couples adultes et deux enfants.

Excellents souvenir de cette location

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 !

Idéal avec des enfants en bas âge car tout est à niveau.

La terrasse est un endroit charmant.

Why Maximilian Ruehle chose Altillac

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.
