Bonne Nuit is a delightful first floor gîte accessed by an external flight of stairs. The accommodation comprises a vaulted open plan kitchen/dining/living area of 6.5m x 4m, with windows and a Juliet balcony, overlooking the orchard and fields into the distance. There is an oak dining table and chairs in the kitchen area and a sofa, coffee table, and wall mounted TV in the lounge area. The lovely exposed wooden beams are a feature throughout Bonne Nuit. The cosy bedroom, 4m x 2.9 has a vaulted ceiling, and is furnished with a double wardrobe with drawers, bedside tables and a queen sized bed which is positioned to make the most of that early morning coffee in bed watching the wildlife wake up out through the Juliet balcony doors. If you are lucky you may see the numerous cranes that feed in the field outside your windows at certain time of the year. The generous bathroom has a large bath with overhead shower, toilet and washbasin, mirror and heated towel rail. Complimentary towelling slippers and some essential vanity accessories are provided for your added comfort. This gîte does not have direct access to a patio but there is a dedicated garden area with table and chairs which overlooks the orchard and is just a little walk from the external stairs to your front door. Bonne Nuit benefits from central heating making it a cosy hideaway throughout the year.

Lovely Gite in peaceful location.
Staying with Huard and Ali was wonderful. The quality of the Bonne Nuit Gite was amazing. Beautifully furnished and fitted out. It is in a very peaceful location and was the perfect hideaway for the time we spent there. We highly recommend a visit.

Les Palennes, 55 acres of Stunning and peaceful location a luxury Gite
We stayed at Les Palennes in a beautiful stone house Gite on the first floor with our private entrance leading to the front door. We were very impressed on how beautiful it all was, so well equipped with all that is needed in a home. Everything in Bonne Nuit was brand new and therefore, pristine. It is a very spacious gite with the charming two Juliet Balconies and 'french doors' that open up to reveal the stunning surrounding land. We spent a lot of our leisure time at the well equipped Pool complex, with barbecue facilities, dining tables and lots of settees and sunbeds plus a Jacuzzi. We enjoyed visiting nearby towns and their markets, chateauxs, lakes and Limoges. Found excellent restaurants nearby, in fact there was so much to do that there wasn't enough time to cover it all in a week - so will have to book again next year for longer. If you like cycling, then this is the place. Personally next time I shall take my easel, the sunsets are so beautiful, I can't wait to capture one on canvas. Thank you Allison and Huard for making our stay with you so very memorable
