The coo of doves is the perfect background for creating a romantic love nest, or a calming accompaniment to any break, especially a honeymoon, and if you didn't guess it from the name, this unusual gite used to be an 18th Century pigeon barn. Inside the pigeons are long gone, and the light and airy interior is tall but small – three storeys but only one bedroom up a spiral staircase with exposed beams and windows with bright blue painted shutters.

Three buildings make up this little holiday complex around a sunny central courtyard – laid out as a farm as you might expect – with a pool, garden and terrace, but Le Pigeonnier is the most secluded of the three. The owner lives in the largest house, a man who holds tastings of the local Bergerac wines.
