We had a fantastic holiday at Le Papillon. This place is absolutely amazing, so spacious with exposed oak beams, all high spec making the place feel very cosy.  The exterior has an amazing heated swimming pool with lovely views overlooking woodland, an amazing place to sit and relax over a glass or two on an evening. Fantastic cycling on the doorstep with local restaurants only a short drive away with amazing food and fine wines. Also within easy reach of local attractions such as Domme, Rocamadour and Chateau des Milandes. We both had one of our best holidays to date at this little gem of a place and it was hard to leave it all behind. We love this place and hope to return soon.” Ian

We enjoyed a lovely week at Le Papillon. We loved the house, my young daughters were very comfortable in the bedroom with 2 beds and the downstairs bedroom with en suite was perfect for my elderly mother in law. The family bathroom upstairs has a wonderful bath tub! The house has lovely views of the countryside and is quiet and peaceful. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The outside area is very relaxing. The pool is large and clean and heated to a comfortable temperature. We made good use of the BBQ. I’m sure we will be back in the future.” The Ducksbury Family

We spent 7 days at this wonderful villa. It was spotless. It was very spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed. The pool was very clean and the sun beds very comfy. We used the Intermarche in Gourdon to do our main shop which was about 15 minutes drive from the villa. We also visited Cahors, Salviac and our favourite place was Sarlat. The weather on the whole was great, we did have 2 days rain and it was cloudy some days first thing in the morning. We would recommend this villa and hope to return again in the future. Graham and Dee were excellent with dealing with our booking and always responded to any emails. ” The Lowe Family

This was our first visit to France and we couldn’t have stayed in a more comfortable place. Le Papillon was clean and well maintained, everything you needed was available. Evening sunsets on the terrace with a glass of wine, overlooking the pool was lovely. Interesting places to visit around the area and some wonderful restaurants. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends. ” Heather

We did have a lovely holiday and the weather was just perfect.” Brenda and Trevor

My feet haven’t touched the ground since our lovely holiday.  It was such a beautiful place, I was really sad to leave.” The Bryan-Browns

We had a fantastic holiday at Le Papillon, thank you.  What a lovely villa and pool and such a pretty region.” The Riley Family

” We had a lovely week, thank you, very relaxing.” The Bone Family

Thank you so much, we had a fabulous holiday.  The weather was perfect, and the house superb.  We have fallen in love with France, so I’m sure will be using your services again at some stage. ”  The Braybrooke Family

Just wanted to say thank you – we had a marvellous time at Le Papillon. Beautiful house, lovely surroundings and the pool is ace.” The Coles

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

We have returned from a fantastic holiday at Le Papillion and will more than likely be booking again for next year but with the family this time we will keep you in formed. We visited some really lovely places and consumed far too much good French cuisine.  We thoroughly enjoyed the house and location.”  The Adamsons

 On the eve of our departure we wanted to thank you and the owners for a lovely week in a beautiful location.” Alison and Kez

Thanks for the stay at Le Papillon. We had a lovely week and have enjoyed travelling around the area.”  The Morgan Family

We had a wonderful stay at the house, which is in a perfect area for exploring the region, and so well equipped for guests. Please pass on our thanks to the owners of the property, who have appointed the house so beautifully – we shall definitely be recommending Le Papillion.”  The Ervine Family
