A peace of heaven and tranquillity at Le Pigeonnier

5 of 5
We just came back after 2 wonderful weeks in Dordogne. We really enjoyed our stay at the Le Pigeonnier ("Le Pige") and the rest of Le Peynau. It's a fantastic calm place, a real little piece of paradise and what you hope for when you dream yourself away on a long cold winter's night. The quality and careful restoration of Le Peynau is amazing. Furthermore, Rachel, Chris and Ellie are such great hosts with many good tips for trips and local life. We really enjoyed the Sunday Marché Gourmand (lunch) in nearby Soumensac village. We all ready talk about what we'll do next time we come back: spend more time in the pool!!!! Thanks a lot for everything, dear Rachel, Chris and Ellie, we really got a "taste" for Dordogne. See you in 2019. Kind regards from Noah, Per and Tanni

Everything you need for a great holiday in France

5 of 5
A brilliant place to stay in a wonderful area of France. The house has everything you need, excellently equipped, well furnished and decorated with good Wifi and internet facility. Beautiful and fully secured gardens with the best heated pool we've had in our stays in France. The property really benefits from the poolside kitchen. Supermarkets 10min drive from the property with lots of small villages around. The owner Maurice, could not have been more helpful, welcoming and friendly. A true gentleman - You must ensure you take the time to share a glass or two of wine with him! We look forward to staying here again and seeing Maurice again next year! Don't hesitate, book now!
