Our facilities for your Vacation in Southern France
The Pigeonnier at La Taupe has been lovingly restored into a “jewel box”, with contemporary fabrics and furnishings and views of the surrounding countryside. It accommodates up to two couples or a small family in this quiet rural setting. The Pigeonnier has a living room with wood burning fireplace, a separate dining room seating up to six people. The separate kitchen/breakfast room is fully equipped with all the modern conveniences included. It has two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room. There is a large open lawn and a private outdoor dining patio. The shared 18 meter (59 feet) heated mosaic pool area is in a walled garden with a barbeque and stone eating area. There is a boule (bocci) court on premises as well as a pitching golf practice course.
La Taupe is a short distance from historical sites and quaint villages.
When people see the Pigeonnier, no one can believe that it was once an ancient dovecote. In Quercy pigeons and doves with their droppings were so prized that they were divided among ones heirs in the same proportions as the family property. .”The keeping of pigeons was another privilege of rank and wealth. Any man who could afford to build a pigeonnerie (sic)…was making a very visible public show of feudal distinction.” (The Terror, by Graeme Fife) These are the signature buildings in Quercy, many still dot the countryside
