What our guests are saying about the Butterfly Cottage

hospitality is great

April 2022

Wir haben sehr spontan noch eine Woche im Butterfly-Cottage bekommen. Die Gastlichkeit von Andy und Uliana ist toll. Sie haben uns jeden Wunsch erfüllt und hätten auch Unmögliches versucht. Trotz der Nähe zu den Vermietern waren wir jederzeit für uns. Der Whirlpool stand rund um die Uhr zur Verfügung. Neben der Unterkunft an sich besticht die Lage inmitten zahlloser kultureller, historischer und kulinarischer Highlights. Erst einmal angekommen, sind in jeder Himmelsrichtung touristische Höhepunkte des Perigord noir in Reichweite, Wanderwege direkt vor der Haustür. Wir haben die Woche sehr genossen und würden die Unterkunft jederzeit weiterempfehlen.

We spontaneously got a week in the butterfly cottage. Andy and Uliana’s hospitality is great. They fulfilled our every wish and even would have tried the impossible. Despite the proximity to our hosts, we were always on our own. The hot tub was available at any time. In addition to the cottage itself, the location in the middle of countless cultural, historical and culinary highlights is impressive. Once arrived, touristic highlights of the Perigord noir are within reach in every direction, hiking trails right outside the front door. We really enjoyed the week and would recommend this lovely place at any time.

It was amazing to be able to see so many stars…


April 2019

We stayed at Les Hirondelles for 6 nights in April/May 2019 and had a very good time. The most spectacular part of this place is its starry sky. It was amazing to be able to see so many stars. We live in a place with much light pollution and Les Hirondelles is just the opposite.
Everything in/about the place is as promised. Any small issue that we had was quickly resolved by the owners, Andy and Uliana. A pleasant surprise was getting fresh eggs from the owners and feeding the chickens with our kitchen scraps and leftovers. However, we only managed to catch a glimpse of Basil the cat.
A good feature about it is its close proximity to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Vézère Valley and Dordogne. But you definitely need a car to get around and be able to go shopping or buy groceries. Unfortunately, bad weather prevented us from using the pool or spa often but the little potbelly stove in the house kept us warm through the colder evenings.
We enjoyed our stay very much und will return without fail.

A piece of paradise!


October 2018
For three weeks in October, 2018, my husband and I enjoyed Butterfly Cottage and called it ‘home’ while we explored the area.
The cottage is charming and very comfortable with everything you need to enjoy your stay. A bonus was that we had our own patio to enjoy listening to the doves, drinking wine or coffee and planning each days adventures.
Our host and hostess were there for us when we needed advice or help of any kind, but never intruded on our personal space if/when we were wanting to be on our own. In addition to being spacious and comfortable, the cottage is located very close to many of the interesting chateaux, grottos, gardens and delightful villages that dot the countryside.
We can hardly wait to return!

“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!”
