Property

Updated: 28-Nov-2016
Pigeon Tower near Monsegur, Aquitaine, Gironde, France - Stunning Views and Beautifully Restored

The Pigeon tower has 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. 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 it’s own drive. It has one of the most spectacular views across the valley. The tower sits by the swimming pool, which is shared with the owners.

About the Owner

Les Hirondelles has been a family run business for 25 years.

Having enjoyed many family holidays in France it seemed natural to eventually buy a holiday home. In 1980 we bought Les Hirondelles with lots of hard work and help from friends and good workmen we transformed a ruin into a comfortable holiday home.

In 1995 we sold up in England and moved lock, stock and barrel to France. Hence starting more adventures: the renovation of our house, the creation of our garden, the conversion of the Bakery, the Winery, Petit Bouteau and the Pigeon Tower. Ten years ago Kate our daughter joined us with her family and now runs the changeovers of the houses along with managing the pools. Sarah our other daughter manages the sales and marketing. So all together its very much a family run busines

A fantastic week in L's Pigionnier

  • 5 of 5

We had a memorable week in a dramatic setting, with first class facilities ans a welcoming and helpful host.

Le Pigionnier is in a superb position overlooking vineyards. You can watch the sun go down every night and then you can watch the stars, from the terrace.

The pool is huge and when lit up at night the effect is memorable.

The house itself has been beautifully restored. There is still some Resistance graffiti from WW2 as the house was used as a hideout during the occupation. The main bedroom has a balcony overlooking the terrace. Both bedrooms have en suite facilities which is handy.

We enjoyed the vineyards, restaurants and markets that the hosts recommended, especially the night market in Monsegur. There were many other places to go such as St Emilion, Montbazillac and Duras but with temperatures over 35C most days we didn't venture too far from the pool.

Overall, I recommend Le Pigionnier without reservation.
