Property description

WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE BUTTERFLY COTTAGE WAS CHOSEN BY HOME AWAY AS ONE OF THEIR TOP TEN MOST ROMANTIC PROPERTIES IN EUROPE FOR 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016.

The Butterfly Cottage at Les Hirondelles is located in the heart of the Dordogne in the center of what is considered the golden triangle. We are just 6kms to Les Eyzies the worlds centre of pre-history & the famous Font de Gaume caves, and only 20 minutes to the wonderful medieval town of Sarlat. So, you have the best of both worlds here at Les Hirondelles with being close to everything, but sleeping & relaxing in the beautiful countryside with only the sounds of peace & quiet.

The cottage over looks a large courtyard with a beautiful Mulberry tree that sits in the center. The courtyard is your own private area to relax in and enjoy watching our famous swallows fly in and out of the barn door or cook up a barbeque with your own private gas grill. Inside the cottage are beautiful wood floors and all the modern conveniences of home. There is a quaint fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast table and bar stools. The living and dining room area is one great room. The living room has 2 comfy reclining leather chairs and lovely sofa to relax on. The custom made sofa is a sleeper bed for the possibility of having a third guest. The dining room has a wonderful large bar top table that seats up to 4 persons. The bathroom is down stairs and is fully updated with a new rainfall shower. The spacious master bedroom is upstairs with a beautiful wood beam ceiling, wood floors, and a heavenly California King size bed.

This is a charming property full of character, and beautifully furnished. You have the feel of the 17th century, but all the upgrades and comfort of home. There is a gorgeous garden to relax in and read a book, or take a nap in the swing. How about a swim in a refreshing salt water heated pool, or a romantic evening in the Jacuzzi hot tub over looking the green Dordogne countryside. So whether you are a couple on your honeymoon, friends on vacation, or a family wanting some quality time together, there is something for everyone to enjoy at The Butterfly Cottage at Les Hirondelles.

So here we are in France and in love with this area!! We think you will feel the same once you visit, and we hope to see you soon!! Please call or e-mail us if you have any additional questions or need any additional information.

Kind regards,

Linda & George Plakiotis

Car: Recommended

We are within a short driving distance of many fascinating historical sites, such as Les Eyzies and the caves at Montignac and the beautiful medieval town of Sarlat. There are stunning villages and châteaux to explore as well as the Dordogne and Vezere rivers offering fishing and canoeing. For wine enthusiasts we are close to the vineyards of the Bergerac area for wine-tasting expeditions and of course there are plenty of superb restaurants to experience the local cuisine. There is also a different local market situated in a nearby village or town for every day of the week. 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 on Sunday. For outdoor activities: cliff climbing, hot air ballooning, zip lining, flying, kayaking, canoeing, cycling, golfing, hiking, and hundreds of châteaux's and caves to explore.
