Darling, convenient cottage -- all the amenities and welcoming owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Le Petite Papillon. The cottage is in a perfect location -- close enough to the village walk, but far enough away to get a little walk in. We enjoyed morning strolls for coffee and afternoon walks to shopping and dinner. The owners are welcoming with their multiple notes to greet us (instructions, wine, etc.). The cottage was totally equipped with all the amenities you'd find at a fine hotel (ironing board, robes, bathroom products, etc.). The bed itself was extra comfortable and soft sheets (and bonus for chocolates on our pillows!). Highly recommend for those couples looking for a quick getaway with the convenience of a downtown location, amenities of a fine hotel and comfort of home.

Thanks for thinking of little extras to make our stay so nice, as in what type of coffee we would like, wine, very high quality towels and linens, & maps & suggestions to help us enjoy the area.

A perfect spot to enjoy Carmel.
