Simple and peaceful country retreat with homely food, heartening pool and a handy location.


A SLOW-CHIC EXPERIENCE

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.

Open year round.

Double rooms start from 71 € per night. Use the calendar to find the rate and availability on a specific date and to book online.

WE LOVE

  • The terrace and the very well kept garden. And the lovely swimming pool, too.
  • The kitchen garden. We have weakness for hotels that have a reel kitchen garden, that’s no secret! 
  • The location. It is close enough to the main routes to be handy, and far enough to unwind in utter peace.

DON'T MISS

  • Chateau de Dissay. Its private, but owners open to visitors in the summer (+33 549 523 456). 
  • The Pinail nature reserve, a mosaic of 3,000 ponds surrounded by rich and rare fauna and flora (+33 549 023 347). 
  • La Maison d’Alice restaurant. A large family house turned restaurant. Simple food, and menus depending on the market finds (+33 549 864 502).

THE BEST BIT

The value. The Pigeonnier du Perron hotel offers an excellent value for money, with standard rooms starting as low as €71 per night. While for dinner, chef Marie-Claire dishes up a delicious 3-course set menu for just €19 per person. For that you get veggies and herbs fresh from the garden, salmon trout from the Vienne river or poultry from the neighbouring farm.
