Vayres, Haute-Vienne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
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.

Our guests have use of the swimming pool, hot tub , sun loungers and parasols at their leisure and the partially covered pool terrace also has a BBQ, al-fresco eating area, chimeneas and comfortable seating for those summer evenings and cooler autumn nights.

Rozel is a disabled ‘friendly,’ one bedroom, spacious ground floor gîte with its own private patio and garden area. The doors are sufficiently wide (none less than 30 inches) to allow access to mobility scooters or wheelchairs....

The Gite was well equipped with everything we needed.
