"What a fabulous place to reacquaint myself with France! La Taupe is in a still unspoiled part of France with beautiful sights all around. Le Pigeonnier is beautifully appointed with all the comforts one could ask for! I was happy to take advantage of the gorgeous swimming pool on the property. Sally and Tim are the perfect hosts and I hope to return! Betsy DiBona- California"

We appreciate their kindness and thoughtful hospitality. Thank you for the anazing experience and memories! Shannon, Bill, Braeden, and Sophie"

"WOW! I just left Le Pigeonnier a La Taupe (Sally and Tim's guest house) and had the time of my life. They were fabulous hosts and exceptional cooks. The setting is very lovely and the accommodations are five star - superb. Even the sheets are pure cotton and the kitchen is equipped with a Robot Coupe. Your private guest house sits next to a glorious pool and magnificent countryside views. I would highly recommend a vacation at Sally and Tim's for relaxation, adventure, great food and fun of a lifetime. Nancy Heinen Chagrin Falls, Ohio USA"

"Staying at La Taupe was absolutely wonderful. Sally's attention to detail is extraordinary, but more than that the overall experience is delightfully serene and glorious all at once. I agree with what many have said before, as I, too, felt like a queen during my stay. Unassuming beauty and easy comfort blend for a very unique and enjoyable experience! La Taupe will be in my heart until such time as I visit again! Tessa of Sedona, AZ, USA"

"Our stay at Le Pigeonnaire was stunning. One of the best holidays we've ever had! We totally agree with all the previous comments and more. Sally is a excellent hostess, her knowledge and advice on where to go and visit in what is an absolutely stunning area of France is second to none and our meal on arrival was perfect. The accommodation is fabulous and luxurious with every care and attention to detail made. The pool and gardens are lovely and wonderful to return to after a sightseeing trip. We can't recommend a visit here highly enough - we will definitely be back! Janet & Bob, UK"

"Sally Green 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 Green!"

"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. Maggie Merrill, Hingham, MA USA"

"My stay at this exquisite villa was far too short. Even a whole summer, rainy days included, one would feel like a count or countess at his 18th century country farm estate, with all of the most comfortable amenities of large beds to luxurious bathrooms, surounded by exquisite art, art and more tasteful art; I speak of the lovely rose lined garden with fountain adjacent the long and beautiful mosaic heated pool; the rustic but generous bar-b-que and patio; and in the most tastefully restored guesthouse, a complete and appetizing kitchen, to inspire trying on's hand in creating gourmet meals with the help of several French cookbooks in English stacked under the lamp on the large family style kitchen table. A trip to a nearby French open air market with its incredibly fresh and yummy produce will complete the enthusiasm. If that is not enough, then hostess and owner Sally Green will make this stay a most delightful experience, that will make visitors want to return to this peaceful place time and time again.

"Elegance, luxury, exquisite decor, supremely comfortable beds, surrounded by spectacular countryside and hosted by the most charming of hosts, Sally Green. What else can one ask of a vacation venue? Well, how about an incredible restored French farmhouse, superb cuisine, heated swimming pool and a full functioning and charming kitchen complete with English language French cook book. What’s not to like? William Ippolito"

"My husband and I absolutely adore our vacations at La Taupe. Our first stay was for our honeymoon and second for our 1st year anniversary. For our second, we brought along another couple that had been so intrigued by our stories from the first stay. We plan on returning every year. Sally is the upmost hostess. In fact, my very busy, forgetful husband needed a card and flowers the day of our anniversary and Sally not only had a perfect card but called, ordered then drove over ½ hour away to get the most beautiful roses I have ever received to be there after our morning jaunt. They even had a gorgeous rose scent! And her cooking is exceptional. We definitely had more meals at La Taupe second time around preferring to hang out at her beautiful setting and enjoying the company and meals there. La Taupe has become our favorite vacation destination. Next year can’t come soon enough!"

"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 (Sally and Ed) 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 .

"Dear Ed & Sally, Thank you so much for a wonderful week at La Taupe. The Pigeonnier is superb, very comfortable and hard to fault. Your cooking is also superb ! Our journey home was fine - no hold-ups - and we did it door to door in 11 hours (not bad, although the police might have thought differently). We would love to return next year. Kind regards, Edward, Kathy, Alexander & Emily"

"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 Greens are the best hosts ever!
