The Dordogne region

Discover 15,000 years of French history in the Dordogne, one of France's most beautiful and unspoiled regions. Starting from Les Eyzies, where the Cro-Magnon man, one of the earliest modern humans, was first discovered, you can explore an ancient world of underground caves, historic castles, lush farmland and elegant châteaux. You can also take a boat along the Dordogne River, visit cliff-side villages, dine in majestic surroundings and wonder at the perfectly preserved prehistoric cave paintings of Grottes de Font-de-Gaume. In addition to its castles, chateaux, churches, bastides and cave fortresses, the Périgord region has preserved from centuries past, a number of wonderful villages which still have their market halls, dovecotes, tories (stone huts), churches, abbeys and castles. Saint-Leon-sur-Vezere, Connezac, Saint-Jean-de-Côle, La Roque-Gageac and many others are real jewels of architecture. As for the old quarters of Périgueux or Bergerac, restored and developed into pedestrian areas, they have regained their former charm. A number of small towns, such as Brantôme, Issigeac, Eymet and Mareuil, have withstood the often brash changes of modern times. The climate is very mild and pleasant, with generous sun from spring to autumn. The region has a very high reputation for excellent food and French specialties, and of course our fabulous wines. So, come and enjoy the Dordogne, and all it has to offer!!!

Meyrals

Sarlat is one of the most attractive and alluring towns in south-western France. Because modern history has largely passed it by, Sarlat has remained preserved and one of the towns most representative of 14th century France. The center of the old town consists of impeccably restored stone buildings and is largely car-free. Sarlat throughout the summer has an extensive program of music, arts, night markets, fairs and activities for all ages. The town of Sarlat has a wonderful food market each Wednesday and Saturday.

Also Le Bugue offers an organic market on Tuesday, and St Cyprien (our guest's favorite) which is a more traditional French market is on Sunday.

Hot air ballooning, canoeing on the Dordogne, cycling, golfing, hiking and hundreds of chateaux and caves to explore .

“It exceeded all our expectations.”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2012

This was our first visit to the Dordogne though we have been visiting France for many years. We were not disappointed from the very beginning as Linda, George and Roosevelt greeted us on our arrival. The cottage had absolutely everything you would need for a most comfortable stay from an extremely well equipped kitchen, a spacious living room with ENGLISH TV!, DVDs, Music etc., all the linen you could possibly require including cosy towelling robes. The bedroom was beautiful and the bed soooo comfortable! A fabulous area outside the cottage to sit and relax with both shade and sun. If that wasn't enough a salt-water pool to die for overlooking the most spectacular views of the countryside. A truly perfect retreat for young couples, children and senior citizens alike. We are definitely going to return!

“A wonderfully rewarding and relaxing experience from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure.”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2012

What a wonderful holiday in a beautiful cottage. Everything we needed was there and nothing was too much trouble. Our hosts gave a wonderful example of how to be helpful without being intrusive. Linda's great advice made sure that we experienced the best that the Dordogne had to offer. After great days out we returned to relax by the pool and then finished the day off with a glass of wine (or two) in the hot tub, watching the sun set over the French countryside. I cannot recommend Butterfly Cottage highly enough.

“If you want paradise in the Dordogne then this is it.”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2012

The owners Linda and George are extremely welcoming people who have thought of everything to give their guests a wonderful holiday.The cottage is beautiful,very clean and very well equipped.The salt water pool and hot tub have beautiful countryside views and the setting of the cottage is very tranquil shared with an abundance of wildlife.Linda and George(together with their charming dog Roosevelt) are always on hand for you with great tips and ideas for areas to visit.One of the highlights was booking Dimitri a local chef to come and cook for us at the cottage-a fantastic experience.Our weeks holiday came to an end all too soon but we would not hesitate to return and certainly plan to.

“A Gem in the Dordogne”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2012

As a travel agent I always searched for "gems" to book for my clients. Butterfly Cottage is a pearl! It is charming, comfortable, and convenient for touring the Dordogne. Bonuses are the loan of a GPS, free long distance telephone calls, a lovely saltwater pool, and the thoughtful owners Linda and George. Marvelous!

“A perfect place to fall in love (for young or old folks); exquisitely beautiful, comfortable and complete”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2012

This is the kind of service one never really expects; the owners care greatly that their guests have what they need, including kitchens stocked with all the spices you want, food (fresh farm eggs) in your refrigerator for your first morning. Linda and George have made this place lovely, with all furnishings comfortable and beautiful. Their good tastes are expressed in everything from dishes to wall hangings, to outdoor furniture. Since they are on site, they happily help plan your days , make calls to reserve for you, or if you prefer, they leave you alone. They also run their business well. Not only is their a wonderful pool (heated to 85F) but it is a salt water pool. I cannot think of a thing we did not like. It's a place filled with magic, both the cottage and the surrounding area. And the bird sounds give it a mystical feeling.
