Gorgeous Villa & Wonderful Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

As a VRBO owner in the California wine country, I am very particular about staying in other VRBO properties. I can say confidently that visitors will likely not stay in a more beautiful environment! And George and Linda are truly the most wonderful hosts. From fresh eggs offered regularly to tips on where to focus in the lovely Dordogne area, you can't go wrong. You will love your stay as we did. Thank you, Linda & George!

Should Have Booked For Longer

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at Mulberry Tree Villa and should have booked for longer. We were met with a friendly and warm welcome from Linda and George. We traveled with parents and teenage children. The villa was very clean, spacious and perfect for our stay.The little extras Linda provides are so thoughtful, fresh eggs, milk, coffee, orange juice, wines, toiletries, and even bathrobes for every one. Linda tries to think of everything and goes above and beyond to try and make your stay perfect. The pool was a perfect way to cool off and relax after a day out sightseeing, and the views are so relaxing and beautiful. Plenty of room inside and out, with two very large patios for everyone to relax, plus a beautiful garden with lots of swings and benches to relax and read a good book. We could not have asked for a better centrally located place to enjoy the Dordogne, everything is literally minutes away. Looking forward to hopefully returning for a longer stay!

We Loved Les Hirondelles !!!

  • 5 of 5

What an ideally located, comfortable and well equipped villa.

Such a great location for exploring this beautiful part of France. From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and nothing we needed or asked about was any trouble at all for our gracious host Linda and George.

We especially enjoyed the well equipped and fabulous kitchen, and having Dimitri put it to good use. The comfortable touches like plush bathrobes, and small bathroom amenities, the many diversions (books, DVD’s, music and games) to the best diversions - the pool, garden, and those magnificent sunset views. The personal attention Linda and George put into the property daily, and their gracious hospitality made our visit most special.

All 3 generations of our grand family , thoroughly loved, enjoyed and relaxed our week stay at Les Hirondelles. We have already booked for a return next year, can’t wait!

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six, four adults, and two children, had a wonderful time staying at Les Hirondelles in early June. Everyone from the six-year-old to my 72-year-old mother loved the house, the grounds, Roosevelt the dog, the chickens, and Linda and George! The house was perfectly clean, beautiful, comfortable, and spacious. We all had our space, and there was a nice bed and bathroom on the ground floor that was easily accessible for my mother, who has trouble climbing stairs. She is also the family early bird and was able to get coffee and enjoy sitting outside in the beautiful gardens while the rest of the family slept in. We had a wonderful time touring local chateaux, taking a canoe trip down the river, visiting prehistoric caves, and other attractions; Linda helped us plan our days and had brochures, maps, and other materials handy, as well as her own invaluable advice on where to park and good places to eat while we were out and about. Dmitri the chef cooked for us twice, and that was a highlight of our trip. We are from New Orleans and have high standards for food, and we all thought that Dmitri could easily be a chef at any of our favorite restaurants. I can't say enough good things about this property and the owners; I don't know how you could have a bad vacation at this wonderful property. Even my six-year-old had a wonderful trip, though he said that meeting Roosevelt the dog and helping feed the chickens was his favorite part of the vacation! I use vrbo/homeaway for all of our family trips, and Les Hirondelles was by far the best experience we've ever had! You do need a car to enjoy all that the area has to offer, and be sure to bring a swimsuit so you can enjoy the beautiful pool and spa.

Perfect villa in peaceful French countryside

  • 5 of 5

Once again we have returned to beautiful Mulberry villa of “Les Hirondelles” – our seventh visit! All the listings in the specification are correct and the property exceeded expectations due to improvements made each year. The property is spotlessly clean and in immaculate condition on arrival. The owners, George and Linda, are readily available on site for advice and suggestions about visits and places of interest, without being intrusive. Any problems were quickly dealt with and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends and family (apart from wanting to keep this gem to ourselves!). The villa is set in the most lovely countryside and peaceful surroundings, perfect for anyone wishing tranquility and absence of crowds. However there is easy access to many local market towns, castles, gardens and places of interest, including sites of prehistoric human habitation at Les Eyzies and Lascaux (a world heritage site). A highlight for us this year was the music festival at Sarlat on midsummer’s evening.
