Guestbook comments from the owner
We found the property ideal for our needs set in a quiet rural location with amazing views. We used the time to relax and to travel to lovely villages around the area. Le Pigeonnaire was an ideal base to travel from and to walk into the local village. Sue, the owner was on hand if needed with her knowledge of the area and to assist In Local custom? She recommended a few places to visit and we were not disappointed with the results of her advice, she managed to balance our need for help without intruding on our privacy and we left there feeling that we had gained a friend.



We will return in the future

CHARM AND CHARACTER

  • 5 of 5
This unique and beautiful character cottage is in a stunning setting, overlooking valleys and fields, and an easy drive from so many interesting destinations and activities that kept us busy all week. The swimming pool was stunning, and the owner was so friendly and welcoming, which made our stay far more comfortable than a normal hotel or holiday hire. We hope to return soon!

My friend and I rented in August 2012 this charming loft. We found the wonderful site and the home owner made ??us perfect. The place is really nice, located in the heart of a region that combines scenic beauty and friendliness of the people. So much so that we booked again for 2013 ! Tip: If you want to discover this magnificent region, stop at Dovecote Sue!

IDYLLIC RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Le Pigeonnier is beautifully situated in a quiet idyllic location in the heart of the Dordogne. The pastoral views over the surrounding countryside are superb. It provides ideal self-catering accommodation for a couple to enjoy a get away from it all holiday and was spotlessly clean.. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen reasonably appointed if you wish to eat in. But there are plenty of good quality restaurants to try within easy driving distance. The pool is lovely. Sue is an excellent hostess and has made us very welcome on the two holidays we have enjoyed in the Dordogne. It is one of those places that you can never tire of and we are going back again for a third time in April this year. We would thoroughly recommend it to all of our friends and family!

UNE PETITE PÉPITE !

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons eu un véritable coup de coeur pour ce charmant gîte! Authentique, avec une vue sublime, idéalement situé pour découvrir les villages & châteaux environnants. Ce petit pigeonnier rénové avec goût, très bien équipé, est parfait pour un couple cherchant l'immersion dans le rythme périgourdin.
L'accueil chaleureux de Sue a rendu notre séjour encore plus agréable, et sa connaissance de la région a été très précieuse.
Une adresse qu'on recommande désormais à nos proches.

Coux et Bigaroque is a beautiful little village nestled in the river valley of the picturesque Dordogne. Its lower part sits right at the edge of a leafy, tranquil section of the river Dordogne. Coux et Bigaroque once belonged to the Bishops of Bordeaux who put the toll station on the river. The 100 years war put an end to this profitable activity as well as to the castle which once overlooked the river and valley. The castle was rebuilt but destroyed again in 1624. Just 2 kms outside the village sits Le Pigeonnier with stunning views across the countryside, a perfect retreat to explore the surrounding region and visit places, such as the medieval town of Sarlat ( 20 minutes away) with it's golden sandstone buildings, restaurants, entertainment and superb market. Stunning bastides such as Belves and Domme are well worth a visit and the near by cave Gouffre de Proumeyssac. Coux et Bigaroque has its own little beach on the river...where you can swim or sunbathe safely. If you like a game of golf there is a couple of 18 hole golf courses nearby, both have good facilities and restaurants. The region itself is well known for its fine wines, so take a tour of one of the many vineyards. If you fancy seeing the sights from the river, pack a picnic and take out a canoe for the day... a relaxing way to see the chateaux, villages and wildlife. If you are a photographer... the early morning mists over the valley are worth getting up for and if painting is your thing you are spoilt for locations.. The village is only 2kms away and if you don't fancy walking there are 2 bikes on hand to explore with. But if relaxing by the pool with a good book and a glass of wine is what you are dreaming of ...Le Pigeonnier is waiting for you to enjoy your stay.

The area of The Perigord Noir is a dream for historians, art lovers, Architects, Foodies, wild-lifers, walkers, cyclists and anyone who appreciates the beauty and charm of French country life.... So much so that this region has been used for many locations in films around the world.....including 'Chocolat'...... 'Les Miserables' ...... 'Ever After - a Cinderella story'.. and many more....
