Le Pigonnier

  • 3 of 5

Property requires some financial investment as a number of fixture and fitting requires maintainance and replacing. How ever all being said the hosts Judith & Chris made us most welcome and contributed along with the other guest to a very pleasant stay. Considering the information received pre booking did not expect to find a baby in one of the apartments.

Quite location far from the madding crowd.

Restoration and Memory Making Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a memorable, wonderful restorative holiday at Pigeonnier Summer holidays 2015. Judith and Chris and the other guests made us so welcome. This part of France was totally new to us and we arrived at the time of the annual wine tasting of the area and sampled some delicious wines. Lazing by the pool with great conversations enriched the memories we have of this beautiful place. It was far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the cities but close enough for lovely local restaurants and sights, canals and driving routes. If we only lived closer, we would visit every year!

Owner's Response: Richard and Robyn - thank you so much for responding to our request for a review of your stay with us last August. We enjoyed your company very much especially at the Couchois wine tastings and the get-togethers with the other guests. We look forward to a return visit to us some day. Best wishes. Judith & Christopher

Sfeervol en goede uitvalsbasis voor de Bourgogne / Attractive and a good base for the Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week in the Pigeonnier. An attractive, tasteful gite with spacious, well equipped kitchen. Everything was clean, comfortable and the inside is cool. The space outside overlooking the cour makes it complete, and not to mention the swimming pool ... The only point of attention could be for people who are less mobile or very large, namely that there is a steep staircase going up. The bedroom is spacious and the bathroom with shower and bath could be at the small side as is the hallway upstares. if you think that could be a problem better rent any of the other gites, although this really is the most special. The entire complex is a great place to come home to after a day out in the Burgundy. The location is central and therefore a good starting point to further exploring trips in the Bourgogne. Judith and Chris give you the feeling that you're welcome. They are there if you need them, are very hospitable and make your stay personally, which is nice. However they have a good eye for the mixture of personal involvement and privacy. Something we really appreciated. In short: thanks for the fantastic week Judith and Chris. We will be happy to visit you again. Frans and Carlie
