    El Palomar (the dovecote) is a very special and romantic little cottage that sits on three acres of land. You feel as if you were in the countryside, but you are really walking distance from Les Cabannes and a four minute drive from beautiful Cordes-sur Ciel.

    The house is compact and charming. Once a train waypoint, it has been beautifully restored and has a charming country kitchen that opens out to a 'terrasse' with stone walls that has a large table for dining 'al fresco' and a small table and chairs for just sitting and sipping drinks during the pleasant afternoons and evenings. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave and a clothes washer/dryer. It is completely equipped with dishes, flatware and cooking utensils. It also has a small toilet for guests....

El Palomar is a beautiful and quaint place to stay next to a charming and mysterious medieval city surrounded by a peaceful and breathtaking countryside. It is perfect for a couple looking for a slow but enjoyable vacation. There are a few places to eat and visit within walking distance or a short drive, and there are many towns and places nearby worth exploring (between 30 to 60 minutes driving). The cottage itself is delightful; it is quaint but still comfortable. If you stay here, your biggest problem will be deciding whether to go out and explore beautiful towns or stay in and relax in a provincial paradise. We stayed for 1 week. It felt like enough time, but we easily could have spent 2 weeks there without getting bored. We did not speak French. There were some people who spoke English, but most of the time we got by with about 5 phrases we learned from our Lonely Planet French Phrase Book. As long as you're adventuresome, language shouldn't be a major problem. After one week...

"El Palomar" (The Dove) was certainly one of the highlights of our European holiday. Like most of our overseas experiences, it exceeded our expectations. The cottage is a delightful combination of Provencal rustic and French chic (we coined the term "Frenchic"!). It is beautifully appointed, is tastefully and thoughtfully decorated and is, frankly, a class act. It was spotlessly clean and immaculately presented. Quite simply, we love the Dove! Dealing directly with the owner was an absolute breeze and pleasure. The information we received prior to travelling was informative and extensive, not only for the cottage itself but also in relation to sightseeing , restaurants, shopping, markets, etc - even detailed to the extent that we given the name of the local butcher! Contemporary elements (such as Wi-Fi) have been incorporated without the cottage losing its charm and, importantly, everything in the cottage worked to perfection. And, as a special bonus, the... more
