“ We had a wonderful time at Le Papillon. We loved the traditional design – stone, wooden frame with proper joints and pegs, the tower – as well as the space. We loved the swimming pool most of all – south-facing, surrounded by excellent paving covering a big area, the lights and bubbles. We loved the area too. We’ve visited other areas of France before but not here. The climate, the scenery, the lovely colored stone; its like the Cotswolds but with sunshine. In short, though, Le Papillon is one of the best holiday homes we’ve stayed in and we would like to return.” Rachel and Kieran, September 2017
