Once the home of Descartes Le Pigionnaire is different. Firstly a couple of warnings - it is not the easiest place to find and secondly reception is shut between 12 and 4 each day. The property is charming with an outside pool which I did not use. The room is fine is slightly functional but the environment in which the... More

We stayed here to break up a trip to the south of france. The gardens and buildings are beautiful.We also used the outdoor pool which was lovely. The hotel is very clean, all the staff are very friendly and helpful. The meal at night is made using ingredients from their garden. The meal was very tasty and great value at... More

Great location for an overnight stop. Peaceful setting surrounded by fields of sunflowers. Lovely gardens with swimming pool. Staff are lovely. Dinner and breakfast excellent.Good wine list. I would recommend this hotel most highly and will definitely stop there again.

My whole reason for staying at this place was to break a long journey with a good night's sleep. I didn't get one, because, like so many European hotels, they insist on supplying duvés or doonas, call them what you will. I can't abide these horrible bedding arrangements, and on an exceedingly hot and humid night, even after skinning the... More

Beautiful, tranquil location, surrounded by sunflowers. We were delighted with our find, and especially enjoyed our dinner outside on the terrace. We thought the meal was good value at €20 per person, and the quality was good. We only saw one person serving throughout our stay, but she was always there when we needed her, pleasant and efficient. Our one... More

But somtimes with having cat around. Staff is friendly, but not all speak EN. Worth... More

The service wasn't great, we arrived at reception and after 5 minutes decided to phone the hotel to let them know we'd arrived. Dinner was ok and reasonably priced. The room was fine and quiet although not overly clean (lots of dust balls and the shower was quite unclean, and we had to keep turning water off mid-shower to wait... More

Once famously owned by Descartes, Le Pigeonnier has been sympathetically restored to offer comfortable accommodation and a restaurant which offered a perfectly acceptable dinner. Our room was simple but more than adequate and the silence after a long motorway drive was bliss. A wonderful night's sleep, no time for breakfast, excellent staff , lovely black cat - definitely recommend it... More

We've stayed here twice now, in the same room, and looking forward to staying again. We arrived on a motorbike and the peace and quiet when we got off our bikes was fantastic. Beautiful setting, very tranquil and relaxing. The room, while not fancy, is perfectly comfortable and on our two week tour was the only room that the air... More

We stayed here for one night on our journey homeward. I had read the reviews not only on trip advisor but also in the travel guides ( Alistair Sawday and Relais du Silence ) and thought it sounded good. We booked a suite as it was reasonably priced and we wanted more room. How disappointing! The property is promoted as... More
