Welcome to our guestbook
The Pigeonnier was my perfect sanctuary while in this beautiful area of France! All the comforts one can wish for, and the beauty of the surrounding grounds make for a wonderful morning walk. Whether just relaxing at La Taupe or enjoying the day trips to nearby villages such as Roquercor or a short drive to Cahors, this is a hidden jewel in France! The Blackburns are the best hosts ever!
I have been most fortunate to have been a guest at “the Pigeonnier” at La Taupe twice in the last 3 years and I would comment that one would have to circle the globe 1,000 times before finding an accommodation with as much comfort, sophistication and attractiveness. The owners have thought of every detail to make one’s visit perfect and memorable in every way.
Sally is the most amazing host! Our stay at Sally’s elegant villa was simply wonderful. The property is magnificent. The attention to detail was incomparable. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and perfect for long walks and bike rides. The pool is perfect. I am planning on returning to spend more relaxing time at this beyond-belief beautiful vacation spot. Merci beaucoup, Sally!
Staying at Le Pigeonnier has spoiled me completely. No other place can compare. The level of detail to period decor, luxury, and comfort are beyond reproach. The welcoming embrace of Sally, Seymour, the dog and Shatsie simply endeared me to this place for ever. Loved, the linens, the soaps (made nearby), wine (of course), the simple quiet beauty of the property and the surrounding countryside…a treasure.
A happy customer.
We (my wife, daughter and I) stayed at La Taupe in the first week in August. What a fantastic location for a holiday – for adults or family. Set amongst peaceful countryside with a very pretty village close by, extremly high quality accomodation with fantastic surroundings, including the wonderful heated pool, and all with the added bonus of knowing that the very helpful owners are close-by too. And they could not have done more to ensure we had a good vacation stay – which we certainly did. I would not hesitate to recommend La Taupe – it surpassed our (already high) expectations.
