Simple and peaceful country retreat with homely food, heartening pool and a handy location.
These 15th Century farm buildings grouped around a sunny courtyard, once owned by French philosopher René Descartes, have been in Emilie’s family for over 150 years. Although very modest in its looks the Pigeonnier du Perron hotel abounds in country charms.
The 14 simple and pleasantly decorated rooms look over the fields and the restaurant serves hearty local food. And with the rest of the family being fully occupied in their wine laboratory in Cahors, a good wine selection is always guaranteed, too.
