The
Experience

Fans of wildlife and star-gazing will be in their element here, deep in the Périgord-Limousin National Park. The Fontaines, from Jersey originally, have carefully renovated the 19th-century barns – preserving original beams and stonework – around the courtyard of their 50-acre farm. They live in the farmhouse and love having guests keen to explore the miles of woodland paths and cycle tracks all around. They’re also super-helpful: will lend bikes, organise lake fishing, riding, hot-air balloon take-offs from the doorstep (well, almost), deliver fresh croissants, even do a grocery shop if you’re running late. One of the barns has a one-bedroomed apartment on each floor (the ground floor one suitable for wheelchair users); the other has two en suite bedrooms above its big open-plan living area with wood-burning stove. All are bright and spacious, with good modern furniture and mattresses, well-equipped kitchens and bathrooms. They each have outdoor sitting/eating areas, great country views and underfloor heating. Everyone shares the pool and hot tub. And it’s just ten-minutes’ drive to fabulous medieval Rochechouart.

Reviews

We had a wonderful stay at Les Palennes at the end of September. Ali and Huard have created high quality spacious accommodation in a scenic and peaceful location. Everything possibly needed was provided - such attention to detail. Amazing sunsets and fabulous night skies - we hope to return soon!

Teresa, Hampshire

What a fantastic location, perfect to relax as well explore the region. The Gite, L’Etacq, was superbly spacious and extremely well equipped. We couldn't have asked for more. The pool and hot tub were brilliant after a hot day exploring. But the crowning glory were the hosts, Ali and Huard, their help with where to go and when you needed to book was invaluable, they even helped with booking. They made the visit and stay special.
