About This Listing
The Pigeonnier, lies off the road between Monsegur and Duras, commanding beautiful views across the valley of the Dropt and enjoys, the much forgotten pleasures, which accompany this rural setting such as the cuckoo, hoopoo, butterflies and the meadow life. Whichever way you turn from the Pigeonneir, you will see vineyards orchards of peaches nectarines, apples, plums and pears and in the Spring an abundance of asparagus; you will feel you are every much a part of a thriving community.
Le Pigeonnier is an ideal base from which to explore the valley of the Dordogne or to Journey to the Atlantic coast, to Arcachon or Biscarosse with their huge sand dunes, beaches and wonderful seafood restaurants. And for those interested in viniculture, just half an hours drive will take you to St Emillion, and it is only an hour to the Medoc or to Graves. In fact the entire area abounds in Chateaux and vineyards.
The Pigeon Tower sits in the owners grounds of their main house but it is away from their house and set down a level making you very private, which is approached by its own drive. It has one of the most spectacular views across the valley. The tower sits by their swimming pool, which is shared with the owners.
The Pigeon tower has recently been renovated to a high standard keeping the original features whilst enhancing its charm and natural beauty. It is an ideal romantic haven for a tranquil break.
When entering the property you approach an opened plan living area with a fully fitted kitchen and a separate dining area. Adjacent is a seating area placed around an open fireplace. There is a TV, DVD player and free to view box allowing you to access the standard UK channels. There is also wifi Internet access.
From this room double doors open out onto the terrace with the most spectacular panoramic view across the drop valley.
Walking up the stairs you will pass a fascinating piece of history, which we have carefully restored a World War II carving etched by a revolutionary hiding out in the tower.
The master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and double bed looks out onto the amazing view with its own terrace. An ideal opportunity for you to have a morning coffee or a cheeky nightcap!
The second bedroom sits in the eaves of the pigeon tower with two single beds which can be attached and made into a double bed if required which also has its own bathroom.

Myself and my family of four stayed in the Pigeon Tower for a week this September. All I can say is that is was an amazing week made 100% better by the beautiful views from the pigeon tower patio. All of the images of the Pigeon tower are spot on. The view is impeccable, there's plenty of room to sit out on the patio on deck chairs or to eat (we spent most of the week sat there)! The bedrooms and bathrooms are of a really good size with again, stunning views and although the living area downstairs isn't huge, there was enough space for us to do all we needed there. We had great weather but i think if we had had to be inside all week it would have felt a little small for 4 grown adults. Sarah and the family are absolutely lovely and even put us in touch with a fabulous pastry chef who came to the house for an afternoon to teach us some French pastry secrets. The Pool is huge and again sits looking onto stunning views just to the left of the property. We felt comfortable, private and in luxury during our stay. Absolutely brilliant place. Will be recommending it to friends as well as coming back when we can.
