The Domaine de Pemontier is set in a quiet location perched on a hilltop within an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Vieille Grange has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and accommodates 8 people comfortably whilst the self contained Pigeonnier sleeps 4 in comfort in 2 bedrooms. The properties can be booked together for large family gatherings or group of friends or separately whilst the 13 x 6 metre pool is large enough to cater for all guests. Both properties provide fully equipped kitchens and have their own patios for barbecues. If you want to eat in a restaurant the town of Bergerac with its wide range of restaurants and shops is only a 10 min drive away, or the medieval village of Issigeac is even closer and offers a good selection of restaurants and shops. The area offers easy access to all the facilities the Dordogne has to offer, with its chateaux, bastide towns, vineyards, rivers and countryside and if you yearn for even more sophistication the beautiful town of Bordeaux is not very far.
We have dreamed for years that we would move to France and run gites, providing excellent accommodation to discerning clients from across the world. We are now able to realise our dream and hope that we will be able to share our enthusiasm for France with you soon.

Thoroughly enjoyable stay.
The owners Lesley and John have high standards and were such fantastic hosts, being personable, attentive, professional, and knowledgeable about the region. I genuinely could not have wanted for more during our stay.
Le Pigeonnier had bags of character, and balanced a rustic charm with all creature comforts and 21st century necessities. It was immaculately clean and all linen was provided.
The properties are within vast and well maintained grounds, and the pool area, also very well catered with seating and shelter, was surrounded by dense greenery, offering good privacy.
It was an excellent base to explore the regions vineyards, bastide towns and exquisite scenery. A couple of local villages, which had restaurants, general stores and boulangeries, were less than a 10 minute drive away, and a couple of huge supermarkets (in Bergeracs outskirts) were only 20 minutes away.
We stayed in Le Pigieonnier for 7 nights and wished we had booked for longer.
We had a welcome basket on arrival which had all the necessary bits for breakfast and some lovely wine thanks.
The gite had everything and more we could have asked for and John and Lesley went out of their way to help us out with child gates and pushchairs so we didn't have to take any with us which was such a help as we have 3 yr old twins which come with a lot of baggage!
The gite was very clean well laid out and had lots of outdoor space for bbq's, relaxing and for the kids to run around.
The pool is a great size and there was plenty of seating and shade around it if needed.
It is a great base for exploring as there is so much to do and see nearby, aswell as some lovely restaurants, cafés and shops a few minutes car drive.
Only a 15 min drive or so from the airport which is always a bonus.
We will certainly be returning and recommending it to family and friends.
Thank you for a lovely and relaxing stay.
This is, without doubt, the best gite we have stayed in in France. Everything you could possibly need and very clean, well-maintained and comfortable. The on-site owners were warm and friendly and attentive to our needs, without being intrusive. We will definitely return here and would recommend it to friends and family.
We stayed for a week at Le Pigeonnier in August with our two sons (8 and 5). We had a wonderful welcome from John & Lesley who really are great hosts. We spent most of the week in the gorgeous pool (well set up for kids, with shallow steps to enter and a large flat shallow end, but also long enough to have a decent swim in). We dragged ourselves off the property a couple of times to explore the Dordogne region, with canoeing, vineyards and the lovely local town of Issigiac. We enjoyed a medieval evening in Issigiac square, plus a night market for great street food. The only potential downside is that the Pigeonnier is 400 years old and so has lots of character - the rooms are on different levels and the stunning attic mezzanine room is up a v. steep flight of stairs - wouldn't suit the elderly! Apart from that, I would definitely recommend this property, and we plan to return ASAP, hopefully for a fortnight next time! Thanks John & Lesley for being the perfect hosts!
Had an excellent holiday at Domaine de Pemontier. Le Pigeonnier is a converted pigeon loft - think French pigeons lived in luxury judging by the quality of the building. 2 bedroom property was really well equipped. John and Lesley had thought about the basics to make a holiday easier - provision of miscellaneous groceries on arrival was much appreciated - milk, fruit juice, butter, wine, etc. Really comfy beds and decent linen and towels too . Excellent location just 10 mins drive from Bergerac airport. Large and spotlessly clean swimming pool with loads of umbrellas and a large sun canopy for shade.
A fantastic location for a relaxing, peaceful break. The accommodation is very well appointed and has everything that you might need. The swimming pool is large and very well maintained with plenty of sun loungers and shaded areas, there is also lots of space around the gite with a lovely terrace where we enjoyed lots of wine, BBQs, watching red squirrels!!and watching the sun go down. The owners John & Leslie were wonderful and nothing was too much for them and we can't thank them enough for making our stay such a pleasure. Highly recommended!
