About this property

Delightful First Floor Gite in a Rural Spot. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

4* Gîtes Les Palennes, located in the Perigord-Limousin Regional Natural Park in the Haute Vienne department of the Limousin, slightly off the beaten track and surrounded by rolling green fields and woodland, our officially rated 4* gîtes offer you luxury accommodation and facilities in a relaxed, peaceful location with wonderful views.

Les Palennes is a 50 acre property, it sits on the top of a small hill on its own, with no immediate neighbours, it was originally a working farm, and the stone farmhouse and barns are being rejuvenated and renovated sympathetically to allow our guests to relax and unwind in seclusion. We are only a 10 minute drive to Oradour-sur-Vayres where you will find a choice of restaurants, bars, boulangeries, boucherie, pharmacy doctors and supermarkets. Rochechouart and St Junien, with more excellent restaurants and shopping facilities are both within a short drive.

Bonne Nuit is a cosy, tastefully furnished one bedroom gite with vaulted ceilings, exposed stonework and beams.

It does not have its own private deck or terrace but an area of the garden has been designated for use by guests staying in Bonne Nuit and is located a short walk from the steps up to the gite.
