Le Pigonnet belonged to the same family for three generations. The Swellens sparked the team spirit and hospitality culture which continues today. Staff soak up the gentle way of life inspired by the garden around the hotel and have been passing it on to guests for over 20 years.

Frédéric Boivent is the new General Manager who guarantees the quality hospitality today, after a career spent in France and the UK. Frédéric and his team will be with you from the moment you book until you leave to make sure your enjoyment is seamless.



3 questions to Frédéric Boivent, General Manager at Le Pigonnet

What first caught your eye at Le Pigonnet?
The extraordinary garden. It is a rare asset to have this so close to a town center, but above all it is a living painting, constantly changing. It triggers delight every time you see it - when you get here for the first time or get back from a day out. The fountains and sculptures illustrate Aix-en-Provence, a city of Art and water where culture rhyms with wellness.

How do you cultivate this gentle way of life every day?
Thanks to incredibly natural team work. The hotel belonged to the same family for generations and is now in the hands of a family group, which creates a sensation of belonging to a house we are proud of. We are fully aware we work in a privileged environment and we naturally share the joy the place brings us with our guests every day.

How would you describe the overall hospitality?
I would say attentive, warm and full of consideration.
