The dovecote was reduced to a pile of stones at the foot of the circular remains of the original wall, and also old pictures from the last century show it still standing like a sentinel. It was therefore restored in the typical form of Provençal dovecotes, with its single-sloped roof arranged in a cascade, its openings framed by ceramic tiles in the warm colors of Provence facing south to shelter the wood pigeons from the north wind. The decorative diamonds arranged like a coat of arms give the dovecote a majestic, slightly aristocratic air that recalls that until the Revolution it was displayed as an outward sign of wealth subject to taxes that only a lord could pay, and restores the status of the big Provençal farmhouse to that of a castle. This citadel for birds tells us of a time when doves and pigeons played a role in rural life as a means of communication, providers of delicate meat, and above all, fertilizers of agricultural land thanks to their droppings. Listen carefully and hear them cooing the story of noble Provence and the Provence of the land.
Away from the large Provençal farmhouse “The castle” and its sheepfold, “Le Pigeonnier” is an atypical, miniature and charming cottage designed for a couple. This small tower restored with romanticism, will be only for you with its private terrace ideal for sweet moments of relaxation. This small flat is decorated in a contemporary way in a stones setting while preserving elements of its past function.
Upon entering the dovecote, you are immediately in the kitchen, minimalist and lovely and nevertheless functional. It will allow you to cook simply and eat comfortably in the sheltered.
For your comfort a modern bathroom has been installed, accessible from the kitchen.
You will discover the bedroom by climbing the narrow staircase that follows the curve of the wall. You are now in the heart of the dovecote, in a cozy and adorably romantic space in which one you do not feel oppressed thanks to the ceiling height. Details abound to remind you of the former use of this tower. You will definitely fall for this adorable nest, its round shape inviting you to curl up, the luminous atmosphere adding to the magic of the place.
Let’s bet you won’t want to go out and leave this little nesting place! But don’t stay “cooing” inside and visit the garden and the courtyard of the castle…
