Magnifique!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing Villa this is, the attention to detail is second to none.

We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful Villa, such a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The decor is breathtaking with all the amenities you could ask for. The surrounding area is very picturesque, so much to see and visit, you could spend weeks here and never run out of things to do and see. Returning every afternoon and relaxing in that beautiful refreshing pool was heavenly. I will never forget the peacefulness of sitting in the garden in the mornings listening to all those beautiful birds. If you like the tranquillity of the countryside I would highly recommend this amazing Villa to anyone. Thank you Linda and George for such a Magnifique week!

This place is simply Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had the choice of several villas that would have met our needs - all I can say is thank goodness we chose Mulberry Tree villa. Not only is it in a fabulous location, its also very well equipped with literally everything you could wish for [including 2 bottles of wine on arrival!] and very very comfortable. What makes this place perfect though, are the INCREDIBLE attentions of George and Linda. From the moment we arrived, Linda was showing us around the property, suggesting daily itineraries, and booking restaurants and taxis for us. Nothing was too much trouble. Dimitri, a local chef, came and cooked for us and that was a real treat. Again, Linda sorted all that out and even rang me up a couple of days before we arrived to sort out the menu.

I could go on and on, but anyone reading this review would be an idiot not to seriously consider this package. One word of warning though - you need to book now for 2017, that's how good it is.

Please keep in touch, and we look forward to hearing from you soon. Warm regards, Linda & George

A Beautiful Villa !!!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful Villa to stay with very welcoming and helpful hosts. Renting a villa in Dordogne was on my bucket list and I am so glad we had the opportunity to stay in this spacious, well appointed, updated, and perfectly located home. The Villa is a great place from which to explore the Dordogne region, and take some time to relax by the pool. The house is big and spacious with a kitchen perfect for cooking for lots of people - there were 8 of us and it worked really well. We lounged by the pool, had breakfast outside with stunning views, and finished a bottle or two of wine on the newly beautiful deck in the evenings. The grounds are lovely and the area is very quiet. This villa is perfectly located for day trips to many interesting locations including Sarlat, Domme, Beynac, La Roque Gageac and the market in St.Cyprien. We had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend this property!!!

We Didn’t Want To Leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at The Mulberry Villa, a wonderful house above all

expectations. We knew we were in for a treat before we arrived having corresponded by email with Linda, who was incredibly helpful.

We didn’t want to leave; we will miss mornings on the patio with the cool breeze and no sounds except the birds singing. We will miss the hot tub late at night under the starry sky, the heated salt-water pool after a day of hiking through the castle filled countryside. We will miss exploring the garden to discover what new flowers are popping up. We will miss BBQing in the evenings and enjoying the local wines.

Most of all we will miss the gracious hospitality of our hosts, Linda and George.

What a wonderful week, we felt so welcoming, comfortable and relaxed, we didn’t want to leave!

Thank you for sharing Les Hirondelles with us!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful and perfectly equipped for a relaxing and luxurious stay. We especially enjoyed the fabulous kitchen with all its amenities, and having Dimitri cook put it to good use. The comfortable niches and diversions, like plush bathrobes, books to enjoy in the garden swings, outdoor recliners on the lovely new deck overlooking the tranquil countryside, and the best diversions, the heated pool and Jacuzzi with those VIEWS! The personal attention to every detail and very gracious hospitality by Linda and George made our stay extra special. The question is not if, but how soon can we come back!

We are within a short driving distance of many fascinating historical sites, such as Les Eyzies and the famous Font de Gaume caves, and the beautiful medieval town of Sarlat. There are stunning villages and Châteaux to explore as well as the Dordogne and Vezere rivers offering fishing, kayaking and canoeing. For wine enthusiasts we are close to the vineyards of the Bergerac area for wine-tasting expeditions and of course there are plenty of superb restaurants to experience the local cuisine. There is also a different local market situated in a nearby village or town for every day of the week. Sarlat throughout the summer has an extensive program of music, arts, night markets, fairs and activities for all ages. The town of Sarlat has a wonderful food market each Wednesday and Saturday. Also Le Bugue offers an organic market on Tuesday and St Cyprien on Sunday. For outdoor activities: cliff climbing, hot air ballooning, zip lining, flying, kayaking, canoeing, cycling, golfing, hiking, and hundreds of châteaux's and caves to explore.
