A Quiet, Relaxing Oasis in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

Le Petite Papillon is an adorable, comfortable cottage. We felt at home as soon as we opened the door, and to be welcomed with a bottle of wine and wine tasting certificate was "the frosting on the cake". Treats, cool drinks in the fridge - they didn't forget a thing. Great toiletries in the shower and anything you may need and may have forgotten. Lovely garden and patio. We hope we have an opportunity to return. Loved it!

Peaceful, beautiful and accessible

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at Le Petite Papillon... the location is perfect, walking distance to the main part of town, but without the traffic and parking hassles. It is clean, welcoming and spacious. The owners have it decorated in a clean, white, homey style that invites you to stay in or enjoy the lovely outdoor area. The bathroom and closet areas are huge! The owners are so thoughtful, even providing jackets, rides and, just in case, a picnic basket with blanket. I would definitely stay here again!

Le Petite Papillon is a perfect place to stay in Carmel. We had a wonderful time in beautiful Carmel and at the surrounding sites. Brenda & David went out of their way to welcome us and to make sure everything was in order. It was easy because you can tell they have put a lot of effort into making sure their place is well stocked and delivered with loads of TLC! 5 stars+!
