Les Palennes, currently aired on Channel 4 for their series, A New Life In The Sun is a wonderful 50 acre property, it sits on the top of a small hill on its own, with no immediate neighbours. Originally a working farm, the stone farmhouse and barns have been rejuvenated and renovated sympathetically to allow our guests to relax and unwind in seclusion.

About the neighbourhood
Beautiful, unspoilt countryside, share your surroundings with the wonderful wildlife and birds, from wild deer to birds of prey and the several species of owls that make Les Palennes their home.

We are a 5 minute drive from supermarkets, pharmacy, butchers, boulangeries and great restaurants and bars. There are numerous lakes a short drive away, as well as horse riding, go-karting, golf, green lanes for walking or cycling, and fishing is also plentiful.
