A truly delightful experience from booking to departure! Marie-Christine and her sister who run this wonderful establishment are a delight to deal with. Our every need was met and their charming personalities match this beautiful Guest House. My husband and I booked the Bonbonnière room. We could not have been more delighted! The room with its lounge area, separate bathroom,... More

As we hit the road back towards home, we decided to cut the journey with a night somewhere. A bit last minute (during summer holidays) we came accross this place online it had great reviews and was not expensive. So we didnt care much how great or not it was, we were just spending one night and leaving earlyish the... More

This has to be one of the very best bed and breakfasts to be had in France. So much so we stayed for a week and will definitely come back. Wonderfully comfortable, welcoming and perfectly located. The owner provides an excellent breakfast with locally sourced products and her own home bakes and jams. She also takes care to advise on... More

We spent a night and loved it. I agree with all the reviews. The host, the house, the decor, the breakfast, the garden, the views, Embrun itself, the region....... all are wonderful. This hotel makes this the best base for the area. Try to spend more than a night here...

We spent one night at Le Pigeonnier last week on our way from Nice to Chamonix. The hotel was easy to find, in a great location, central to town but quiet and protected from any noise. We stayed in the Bonbonnière room which was absolutely lovely. Bed was comfy and the clawfoot tub and tea makings in the room put... More

Nous avons passé 7 nuits au Pigeonnier début septembre 2013. Le cadre est très reposant, la chambre Mauve et sa salle de bains très grandes, et très bien isolées phonétiquement. Nous avons pu déjeuner dans le jardin et on nous a proposé un large choix de produits frais (salade de fruits, céréales, jambon de pays, fromage, yaourts, pains, confitures artisanales...).... More

Were met on arrival by the owner's niece, the owner had experienced a bad fall, and the family stepped in and took over. They were so incredibly helpful, and lovely to chat to, their English was perfect. The property is an oasis in the city, Embrun is a beautiful town. The breakfast was delightful, our room was huge, and the... More

We can only agree with all of the other reviews. The location is excellent, next to a park with panoramic views of the the alps, and within close walking distance of the old town. Christine is an excellent host with an eye for detail; decor stunning and breakfast delightful, using local produce. The rooms are large with an equally large... More

My husband and I had been traveling around France and were tired when we arrived at Le Pigeonnier, and it was so charming, warm, and inviting, we felt like we were arriving home to stay with family or friends vs. at a hotel. The B&B is conveniently located in Embrun with stunning views of the Alps. Christine, the owner, was... More

I can’t say enough good things about Le Pigeonnier, I can honestly say that I liked everything about it. The location is in the town centre and near to all the amenities. The house itself is absolutely beautiful, the way it has been renovated is very tasteful. There are only 4 bedrooms which makes it feel more special, we looked... More
