“The most relaxing holiday.”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is our 7th year at Papillon. Need I say more ! As always the gite is immaculate with everything you need. The location is perfect , quiet but with local villages and towns nearby, if you need to have social interaction and shopping. Charlie and Pam are the perfect hosts, there if you need them but do not intrude on your stay. Amazing walks available if you have dogs or want a wander. Papillon is perfect if you have dogs or small children as it has a secure garden. We will be back next year.

“Great Gite”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Really enjoyed our family stay in the gite. It is well equiped with a nice private garden at the back. The pool is fantastic and great for relaxation on a hot day. The owners are very helpful, around to assist but not intrusive. The area itself is great, not too bust with beautiful towns such as Brantome and Bourdeilles nearby as well as easy access to outdoor activities such as canoeing. Good wi-fi access in most of the gite.

“Lovely garden, good location”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Very pleasant stay - Pam & Charlie were very welcoming whilst respecting our privacy.

Good clean rooms with a nice sized kitchen and lounge for socialising - nice grassy garden with loungers, very child/pet friendly.

Good location - very quiet & rural, yet close to Lisle & Tocane for cafés and markets.

“Relaxing and Good Value for Money”
Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Gite very clean and comfortable. All mod cons, including washing machine, fridge and separate freezer. Lots of hot water. Plenty to do in the area - local walking on well signed paths, eating in local restaurants, longer journeys to explore towns and cities in the region and then to come back to the quietness and rural surroundings to enjoy a swim in solar heated pool. Roads so quiet - a pleasure to drive on. Charlie and Pam are very welcoming but unobtrusive. Have been 6 times already and nothing changes- hope to come again to renew our batteries.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Absolutely fantastic Gite. Everything you need and more. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable rooms with lovely Lounge room and a private secure garden. Was visiting with family and pet dog so garden was perfect. Could fully relax. Wonderful pool and other games available on site. Plenty of walks locally and close to many beautiful French villages & towns all only a short drive away. Really relaxing and welcoming. Pam & Charlie where perfect hosts so grateful for the opportunity to stay at their property. Photos on website do not start to do Gite justice its idyllic, butterflies and flowers in garden at Papillon where added bonus. Hopefully make a return journey in future could have easily stayed longer.

“A great rural spot, the pool was a big hit with us and Papillon had everything we needed to relax.”

Very well equipped venue - the welcome pack was just one of those extra little things that helped make our stay great. Our hosts were affable and helpful throughout in a low profile sort of way around the site. Local markets and villages were enjoyable to explore - particularly on a fete day. River canoeing and tree parcour were a couple of things we tried out with fab results.
The heated pool was bliss - and the whole games cave area - fun for all.

“Restorative & relaxed holiday”

We were a party of 2 families with young children and we spent 2 weeks here. The accommodation is rustic and fairly basic but quite well equipped and extremely relaxing. Charlie and Pam are very helpful and friendly and it matters to them that you enjoy your stay. The clean and warm pool was a big hit and we enjoyed making friends with the other families in the 3 further gites. The information guide was very useful. We visited a chateau, markets, went on a canoe and ate delicious meals nearby. A lovely holiday.
