Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Mont St Jean - La Maison du Pigeonnier
Sleeps 6 plus baby
This is an ideal family holiday retreat, warm and welcoming, with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. This unusual three storey 13th century house lies in the heart of a beautiful medieval village. It has been renovated by its owner, who brought it back to life in absolute sympathy with its setting, revealing gems like hidden vaulted stone ceilings, and a 12th century stone column in the kitchen. The walls of the lower two floors are all rendered with traditional lime in delicious ochre tones that create a warmth throughout. Both the kitchen and sitting room have underfloor heating so you won't be needing your slippers! The vast kitchen with beams and flagstones, lends itself to those gourmets who would like to spend time cooking up a feast. The house is extremely comfortable and cosy, whilst on the terrace and in the garden you'll have a wonderful feeling of space and beauty - the perfect combination for a relaxing holiday.

About Naomi Bishop
We live with our four children forty minutes from Mont st Jean. I am a mum at home, and Roger is in the building trade. Having renovated and lived in La Maison du Pigeonnier for five years, we are now currently renovating another house which we bought as a ruin. This time it's for us to live in!
Naomi Bishop purchased this house in 2006
Why Naomi Bishop chose Mont St Jean
The area was already well known to us, Roger having lived here for nearly thirty years. We heard about this property by chance from a friend, who was told that it would be coming up for sale in the near future. We decided to make an offer that was accepted before the house was ever put up for sale!
What makes this house unique
We bought this house for it's location. It was love at first sight! The view was so breathtaking and the surroundings so tranquil. It is a property steeped in history, so very unique.
