“Amazing, restful, beautiful !”


March 2017

“The Butterfly Cottage hosts, George and Linda, have set a very high bar for the French “gite” experience!

In addition to an impeccably kept property, coupled with every conceivable amenity, they are the most gracious and hospitable people my husband and I have encountered in our many years of travel. Not one’s to make repeat trips very often, staying at The Butterfly Cottage has changed our minds – we will return!”

“Butterfly Cottage Best Of All !”


May 2017

“My wife and I have stayed in gites and cottages many times, but both agreed that our stay at Butterfly cottage was the best of all!

Perigord is a wonderful place to visit of course, and the cottage was ideally placed to enjoy it without having to drive too far. Linda and George were marvelous hosts, and nothing was too much trouble….when I unpacked my case after the holiday, it was full of Linda’s hand written direction sheets!

Thank you both for making such a huge effort to assure we enjoyed our stay!  Thanks also to Dimitri for cooking us a wonderful meal in the cottage one evening…it was memorable!”
