About the Owner
It is ideally situated so that you have the tranquility of the countryside, but also minutes away from your everyday needs, with no adjacent neighbours, surrounded by fields of Sunflowers and corn, it really is a perfect place to visit.
If your requested dates are not available in the Pigeonnier, please contact me as i do consider just couple in the bigger Cottage.
I am here on site if you ever need anything and can offer recommendations, but i also respect your privacy.
The local tourism office can be located in Eymet square, and they speak a hole range of languages.

Beautiful peaceful stay, home from home
Beautiful accommodation, fully equipped with stylish taste. Awesome surroundings and a superb outdoor pool. Quiet and relaxing holiday stay. Car a must, short drive to Eymet village. Plenty of British people around for company, locals all friendly.
Jenette gave us (and our dog) a very warm welcome, both personally and with a few useful goodies, including bread, wine, milk and eggs. All the essentials were at the cottage, so no need to bring the basics! Eymet is just a short (10 mins) drive away and has everything one could need, supermarket and restaurants. The bed and living room were very comfortable, the view of open countryside from the terrace made it a very relaxing place to sit when the sun shone (it was March). Our dog enjoyed sniffing around the garden and strolling round the nearby fields. All in all a very pleasant spot and would definitely recommend it for a couple with (or without) a dog.
We arrived to our cottage, to a basket of provisions that Jenette had provided for us. The cottage was well furnished, spacious and was equipped with all we needed for our stay. The pool was excellent with everything perfect quality and so clean. We made full use of the BBQ and the table and chairs just outside our cottage. It was ideally situated in the lovely French countryside. Approx 25mins from the airport, and less than 10mins to the nearest village Eymet. Which was so beautiful and quaint. As was all the villages close by. Eymet had some lovely resturants and cafes. And had some brilliant markets, with everything you could want. We went horse riding a couple of mins away from Jenettes which was great. Last but not least we found our host Jenette, absolutely wonderful and very helpful and friendly. Would recommend this place to anyone, and we will have to come back for a return visit. Thank you so much Jenette it was indeed a dream holiday had by all. See you again next year!!
"Comfy Home from Home"
We spent a week at labarthe in the pigeonnier recently, we arrived quite late and Jenette the owner had offered to pick up some provisions for us, she also provided extras, wine,cheese, nibbles, bread,milk, etc. which was was very welcome. The gite is extremely well equipped probably the best we've stayed in, even pool towels were provided . It was very hot the week we were there and the bedroom in the pigeonnier did get very warm at night . Thankfully there are mesh covers on the window so it was possible to leave them open, and there's a fan so it wasn't too bad . The location is great with Eymet just a short drive, which is a lovely place, and with a few nice restaraunts, the Italian was fab, we ate there a couple of times and everything was good and very reasonable. The pool area is wonderful and I especially liked the sun beds, they were actually comfy with big cushions provided and the pool is heated, not that we needed it, but good any case. Wifi was fine, no complaints , and Jenette s a great host and we thoroughly enjoyed the fresh eggs from her chickens! We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Jenette .
Beautiful Gite, Peaceful Setting
We had a lovely weeks break at Labarthe Pigeonnier in March.
The Gite was very comfortable, spacious and tastefully decorated.
We arrived to a much appreciated welcome pack of wine, cheese and other essentials kindly supplied by our friendly host Jenette.
Set in a tranquil part of the countryside, it was very peaceful to sit on
the covered terrace with a glass of wine and discuss the day.
We were very fortunate for March to have great weather, although it was cold in the evenings we were nice and cosy inside, thanks to the wood burning stove.
Thanks Jenette, for a wonderful week, hope to be back soon.
We had an amazing, relaxing holiday staying at Jenette's Pigeonnier. When we arrived Jenette had left us with all the essentials and a little more: a food basket of bread, jam, cheeses, milk, crackers, two bottles of wine and more. This was a lovely touch and meant we didn't have to rush to the shops the moment we arrived. There was also tea, coffee and sugar at the Pigeonnier.
The place was spotless and so very comfortable ~ really like a home from home! We had a BBQ outside our patio and Jennette had supplied all the fuel needed.
The pool was so nice, spotlessly clean and with a little frog thermometer so you knew the temperature of the water before jumping in! There were ample sun loungers with comfortable cushions around the pool area.
We went to the nearby Aqua Park which was a lovely day out and Jenette recommended the Chateau de Bridoire which was another great day out with many fun activities for the children.
The nearby village of Eymet was stunning with day and night markets.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Labarthe and am already looking at flights to return.
I would recommend hiring a car as Labarthe is set in incredible beautiful but very rural surroundings.
All in all an amazing holiday and a superb host.
Thank you Labarthe!
