Dear Phil, Donna, Henry, Fleur and of course Cookie and Hector!

A heartfelt thank you for your warm welcome, wonderful hospitality and the privilege of staying in your perfect pigeonnaire.

We have had a thoroughly relaxing holiday and have been blown away by the beauty and tranquillity of this place - only surpassed by Fleur's delicious chocolate cake!

Many thanks,

Cameron, sarah, Hannah and Benjamin.

Dear Phil, Donna, Henry and Fleur,

Thank you for making us feel so at home and welcome in your beautiful pigeonnaire.

We've had a lovely relaxing second week of our holiday.

The boys have especially enjoyed the pool and playing with Cookie and Hector.

Dear Phil, Donna, Henry and Fleur,

We've had a great week - your pigeonnaire is beautiful and the views superb!

Loved touring around the area - castles at Biron and Buonaguil and really enjoyed the Thursday evening market at Monflanquin.

Good to meet you all - and lots of luck with your future plans.

Caroline, Mike, Florence and Will
(Special thanks to Cookie and Hector!)

Cookie and Hector can be your friends for a week


It's always nice to read the comments in our visitor book left by guests who've stayed in the pigeonnaire.

Not every guest leaves a comment but out of those who have it's been very warming to hear how they've enjoyed their stay.

The authentic restoration always gets a mention, the stunning scenery is another that's high on the list of likes but the single thing (or should that be the two things?) that occupies the most column inches is Hector and Cookie.

Almost without exception, all of our guests have written a paragraph or two about they've been kept entertained.

Hector the black lanrador Hector is an 8 year old pedigree black labrador who came over with us in October 2004 aged 17 months. He's a bit slow and sedate now but still he's got a twinkle in his eye and is great fun.

He'll greet you with a bark when you arrive and come and lie below the terrace of the pigeonnaire, just happy to have you around.

Hector's fantastic with children and great company all round and loves to go for a walk with the guests (even showing them the way on our very private little route where we live).

3952 When you first arrive at the pigeonnaire, Cookie will be there to greet you and before you've even set foot out of the car she'll drop her toy for you to throw; you are instantly Cookie's friend whether you like it or not.

Cookie is just a whirlwind and will want to play with you all day and seems to melt everyone's heart.

Cookie's got the sweetest of personalities, she's great with children and just fun.

Dear Phil, Donna, Henry and Fleur

Many thanks for your warm welcome. We've enjoyed ourselves very much.

Congratulations at the way you've developed the pigeonnaire in such a sympathetic way so as to blend in with the local buildings and landscape.

We had great fun with Hector and Cookie and in taking them (or them taking us) for walks.

Best wishes for the future.
