Visiting the accommodation, I came with One perception and left with quite a different view, which is what a magical and tranquil place to stay!!!
From the pool, hot tub and kitchen facilities to the reception rooms, patio and mattress in the bedrooms (which are of the highest quality) I felt surrounded by luxury daily. From that perspective, worth every penny.
What really makes the holiday and accommodation are your friendly hosts and local experts George & Linda. At first, we had them visiting so often we wondered if George & Linda wanted to join us for dinner and nights out. But in all fairness, if it wasn’t for them, it wouldn’t be a 5 Star holiday. They are kind, informative, helpful with any problems, welcoming, they offered numerous places to visit with directions and advice for the best places the eat... just fantastic service with a smile. They even helped organise a surprise birthday cake for my dad and 5 Star Michelin chef cook for us during our stay - fantastic!! We arrived meeting our hoasts and left with 2 new friends. Thank you so much and we’ve already reserved next year it’s been that good!
To say at Mulberry Tree Villa was a pleasure from start to finish.
Linda and George are perfect hosts, making you feel welcome and special. The villa is exceptional both in cleanliness and comfort. It is a treat to stay in such an old building.
The chickens are an added bonus, feeding them daily was enjoyed by all.
I have to mention the swimming pool and the hot tub both 10 out of 10 for relaxing whilst surrounded by beautiful countryside.
We did use the services of the very professional and kind chef, Dimitri, as recommended by Linda and previous reviews. We are all strict Vegetarians and the menu he served was so thoughtful and extremely tasty. It is a very special treat that I wouldn’t hesitate to book again and again.
We usually spend our holidays touring the area and really don’t spend much time at the rental. However, this holiday we couldn’t get enough of the place and spent our days mostly relaxing at ‘home’.
Thank you and see you again soon!
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 rent houses/apartments 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. We plan to return as soon as we can.
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.
Fantastic location in a beautiful part of the Dordogne. Very well equipped house and garden with every amenity you could want. This is our third stay, we love it.
Linda and George are the perfect hosts, their aim is to make your stay as enjoyable as they can.
There is so much to do here, whether it be visiting one of the many pretty villages, canoeing down the Dordoge, climbing along the Via Ferrata or walking in the local woods there is something for everyone. The local Boulangerie and nearby supermarkets provide for your every need. Dimitri can be easily arranged to come in and cook for you, what a wonderful experience that is. There are also good local restaurants.
A wonderful family holiday looked after by Linda, George, the girls (their hens) and Roosevelt (their dog) . You won't be disappointed
