Dovecotes of France
The French word for dovecote is pigeonnier or colombier. (An alternative English name for dovecotes is derived from the French: pigeonaire. This word is more common than "dovecote" in Louisiana and other areas with heavy Francophonic heritage.) In some French provinces, especially Normandy, France, the dovecotes were built of wood in a very stylized way. Stone was the other popular building material for these old dovecotes.
Some of the medieval French abbeys had very large stone dovecotes on their grounds.
