What our guests are saying about the Mulberry Tree Villa

“Memorable family holiday”

 

June 2019

Our 3-generation family spent a week at Les Hirondelles (both the villa and cottage) celebrating several family milestones. This holiday exceeded our already high expectations. Les Hirondelles was perfectly situated for us. It’s a few minutes’ drive to the towns of Les Eyzies and Ste Cyprien. Some of the most incredible cave art is within a few kilometers. All the A-List attractions of the Dordogne were within the radius of a half-hour drive—every bit of it through beautiful countryside.

The property is gorgeous, especially when the weather is right for outdoor living. We took all our meals on the patio, surrounded by great beauty and accompanied by bird songs. Even with five energetic kids there was plenty of space for everyone who wanted to be exuberant without disturbing those of us seeking an hour of quiet time. The pool is great. The houses are clean and well-equipped. They accommodated our group comfortably. There are three public areas in the villa, plus a separate kitchen/living room in the cottage. The kitchens had all the equipment and dishes that we needed.

We stayed during a record-breaking heat wave, with high temperatures topping out around 40 Celsius. The stone walls kept the interior cool for a couple of days before the heat penetrated. This led to a few uncomfortably warm nights, especially in the upstairs bedrooms. No idea about the comfort level during more seasonable warm spells.

The owner/hosts Andy and Uliana live on the premises. They struck the perfect balance between being available and unobtrusive. Our stay was early in their first season running Les Hirondelles. Despite being new at this endeavor they provided all the information we requested. I’m sure their local knowledge will grow steadily. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer. We would have been happy spending more time enjoying Les Hirondelles and the beautiful Dordogne region.

“Mulberry Tree Villa – fairy-tale picture paradise”

 

April 2017

 

“We stayed here for a week over Easter 2017 with our two girls aged five and eight. We had the loveliest week in this beautiful charming villa.

We took the Eurotunnel and stayed overnight in Orleans on the drive down which was a great location for a stop off and nice to break up the drive too. Linda and George are really amazing and look after everything so well. They really put their heart and soul into making everything perfect to ensure the best holiday possible. They were so welcoming and I’ve never come across such wonderful and accommodating hosts. The local area is just picture perfect like something out of a fairy-tale. So much to see and do and we did as much as we could but didn’t want to leave and wished we had stayed for 2 weeks.

The villa is full of everything you could possibly need from plush robes (even for the little ones), bath towels, toiletries, hairdryers and the kitchen is fully stocked with all mod cons. I don’t think there is anything that was missing. I know Linda and George have worked hard to provide anything that is desired so you can relax knowing it’s all there. The house is full of rustic charm and such a perfect holiday place. We loved the house and enjoyed every evening here having bbq’s on the terrace or playing games and watching movies from the great range provided. The beds are amazing and we have never before slept on such a comfortable mattress in the biggest bed ever. My king sized bed seemed very small in comparison when I returned home! Plenty of storage everywhere too. Immaculately clean. The gardens are beautiful with so many colorful flowers and so well kept. The swimming pool is huge and heated to a lovely temperature. We loved the pool and the hot tub was a real treat with the wonderful views of the countryside. Couldn’t ask for better.

The highlight of the day for our girls was feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs with Linda. She always took the time to do this with them and it’s a really special memory for them. Nothing was any trouble at all. Thank you Linda. We enjoyed eating freshly laid eggs for breakfast and now love having dippy eggs every morning at home!

Linda arranged for us to have Dimitri the French chef come cook for us one evening. What a treat! Food was amazing and pudding to die for. Chocolate surprise was heaven. I also tried white asparagus which was in season in France and that was delicious. Dimitri brought along some specially chosen wines to pair with the food which was just perfect. Highly recommend this special evening as you can sit back and relax and have a luxury meal made for you and tailored to what you like. We will be booking this again when we return next year.

Highlights of the area for us were canoeing down the Dordogne river on a beautiful sunny day. Took about three hours or so with a stop off for a drink along the way and scenery is stunning. Girls loved it too and it was so peaceful. We visited Marquesac, beautiful gardens with truly amazing views over the Dordogne. Stopped for lunch there which was lovely. Well worth a visit. Also went to Chateau de Castelnaud. Wow! An amazing medieval fortress steeped in history. Again the views were stunning and it’s so impressive. Loved the visit. Lots of little villages around to visit including Beynac and La Roque-Gageac. You musn’t miss these as they are beautiful and fairytale like, so much history. We visited the local outdoor market which we really enjoyed. Picked up some delicious meats for the bbq, cheeses, fruits, vegetables etc., delicious.

The area around the villa is so picturesque and quiet. We took our bikes and went on a few rides with the girls, it was well worth bringing bikes as perfect cycling. I could go on and on about it but trust me you couldn’t be in better hands with this place and such wonderful hosts. We couldn’t have asked for more and our expectations were exceeded completely.

We loved it so much we have rebooked this gem of a place for next year. We can’t wait to return and bring some other family members to enjoy the perfect paradise.

Thank you so much Linda and George. See you next year!”

“A Beautiful Villa !!!”

April 2016

A beautiful Villa to stay with very welcoming and helpful hosts. Renting a villa in Dordogne was on my bucket list and I am so glad we had the opportunity to stay in this spacious, well appointed, updated, and perfectly located home. The Villa is a great place from which to explore the Dordogne region, and take some time to relax by the pool. The house is big and spacious with a kitchen perfect for cooking for lots of people – there were 8 of us and it worked really well. We lounged by the pool, had breakfast outside with stunning views, and finished a bottle or two of wine on the newly beautiful deck in the evenings. The grounds are lovely and the area is very quiet. This villa is perfectly located for day trips to many interesting locations including Sarlat, Domme, Beynac, La Roque Gageac and the market in St.Cyprien. We had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend this property!!!
