Le Papillon Holiday Rental in SW France

luxury gites for rent SW France

Set on the edge of our little woods, le Papillon is the perfect place to relax and unwind. It was originally a small animal barn that has been extended and renovated over the years to become a delightful 4 bedroom cottage which can sleep up to 10. 
Le Papillon can only be booked with L'hirondelle for parties of up to 20 people, we don't book this out individually as it is just too close to L'hirondelle for separate parties.

The kitchen has a range cooker, an American fridge with ice maker, a dishwasher, a washing machine,dryer, microwave and everything the discerning cook could need! The kitchen door leads on to a massive covered terrace outside with table and chairs for Summer dining with excellent views of a distant farm and a hazelnut orchard.
Walk past the woods across the lawn surrounded by fruit trees and you will find our new kids  playground surrounded by decking on two levels with table, chairs and loungers. Adults can relax here while watching kids play, try out the trampoline! Swings, slide  and nice things for our smaller guests in a semi hidden playground!
This is in a very private location, surrounded by big oak and little fruit trees and overlooking  a hazlenut orchard and the farmers field, all taking you back to a time a little less hurried!

Inside the house there is a spacious lounge with a contemporary sofa which can convert to a double bed if needed. We have a 40" TV, DVD  here too.There is also an electric massage chair which gives a full body massage including your feet, excellent after a long drive!

A/C here too, perfect for those hot and sunny Summer days.

We also have heating and a lovely old woodburner if the weather is cool.
There is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, with A/C and french doors that lead out to the terrace.
The second bedroom downstairs is vaulted and has two sets of bunk-beds, a single foldaway bed  will just about fit too if necessary, and is just for kids.
Toys and games, crayons and pencils, teepee , lovely dressing up box, DVD with films, Wii and even some bunting on the ceiling, so good the kids wont want to leave!

Upstairs we have one small double bedroom and another low beamed room with a double bed which can be used as an extra bedroom or a dressing room.. We love babies here and have cots, highchairs, changing mat, steriliser and baby monitor: for the comfort of our smallest guests!
Le Papillon is a simple place, the building is very old with beams and lots of character, the views are just lovely.
Le Papillon is adjacent to our endless pool, another huge decked terrace where you can dance the night away!!

There is heating and a woodburner for winter lets. The family bathroom is just off the lounge and has a big jacuzzi bath.

What awaits you at le Papillon...

Guests at le Papillon enjoy exclusive use of its 8 x 4m swimming pool, its 6-seater hot tub, an indoor jacuzzi, a massage chair and a table tennis table! Le Papillon's lovely summer pool is surrounded with decking and sun loungers.

If you want to eat al-fresco, there is a large table and chairs on the covered terrace outside, which houses a barbecue. Just beyond is a thatched gazebo where you can sit and watch the kids play. Or you can sunbathe on the loungers by the pool, or snooze in a hammock in the woods.

Was meaning to email you to say thank you. We had a lovely time at Le Papillon. It was perfect - never really been in to hot tubs much but I think I’m a convert! The house was great and the dogs loved the garden.
