Additional amenities & feature info
Papillon like its sister Cigale is beautifully furnished with an ecclectic mix of English antiques and French charm. The villa is large, and romantic with all the modern facilities you may require for your precious holiday in the sun. Sun loungers and comfortable chairs are scattered about the property with hammocks gently swinging from the conker tree.
The large sumptous beds are dressed in 400 count Egyptian cotton sheets, a picnic awaits or a casserole in the winter complete with a bottle of wine to drink whilst soaking in double ended bath gazing at the vines and surrounding hills. Peace and quiet envelope you lulling you to sleep to the sound of nightingales.
