The doors are sufficiently wide (none less than 30 inches) to allow access to mobility scooters or wheelchairs. The generous accommodation consists of a large open plan hall/kitchen, 4m x 3m into a diner/living room, 3,5m x 6m, Large patio doors lead directly onto the patio with fantastic view to the west over fields and woodland, the sunsets here are truly amazing. The light and airy living room is tastefully furnished and makes Rozel a wonderful retreat. The bedroom has a queen-sized bed, double wardrobe with drawers and bedside tables, and overlooks the orchard. The wet room type bathroom has a large walk in shower, WC and vanity unit with mirror. Complimentary towelling slippers and some essential vanity accessories are provided for your added comfort. Rozel benefits from underfloor heating throughout so while the gîte remains cool in the summer thanks to the thick stone walls it will always be warm in the autumn/winter months.

Peace and Tranquility
This gorgeous little gite is just perfect for a quiet countryside holiday whilst being ideally situated to visit the many beautiful villages and towns of Nouvelle Aquitaine and the Dordogne - it’s just over an hour to beautiful Périgueux or Limoges. The gite is well equipped with lots of the little touches that set it aside from other rentals of its kind and the helpful owners are always on hand to help with any queries you might have. Although there are two further gites on site there is still a complete sense of space and tranquility that it’s enviable location set amongst 50 acres of national park would suggest. We’ll definitely return. Top tip: Bill and Ben, the owners’ gorgeous donkeys, will be friends for life if you go armed with carrots. Lots of carrots......❤️ ❤️

Beyond perfection
This was our fourth stay at Gites Les Palennes, this is the perfect place to unwind and feel at home. The attention to detail is well beyond expectations and along with the friendly owners, who just can’t do enough to make your stay perfect, you can’t help relax and enjoy being here. If you are looking for the idyllic place for a holiday in the peaceful surroundings of France then look no further. Thanks to Ali and Huard for everything.

Perfect place to relax
The location of the gites are wonderful, on top of a hill looking into the forest, such a quiet and unspoiled place to relax. The gites are very luxurious with all the facilities you will need for an enjoyable stay. The hosts Ali and Huard are very attentive and happy to help with information about the surrounding area. Very highly recommended

The perfect place to relax and recharge, with amazing scenery and hosts.
We stayed in the newly built two bedroom gite. It is finished to the highest standard and set in a rural location. Local towns are very close and the city of Limoges is a short drive away. We stayed for Christmas it was simply perfect. The hosts are on hand to assist with anything you want to know about the area. They also have two donkeys, Bill & Ben plus Chili the cat. All very friendly. A pool and hot tub also there to help unwind. The single bedroom gites are also perfectly equipped. So get booking it is worth it.

Superb experience
Stayed at Gites Les Palennes in the bottom one bedroom gite. From arriving up the drive surrounded by amazing farmland, Seeing Bill & Ben - the 2 donkeys - in the field and meeting the Gite owners Ali & Huard, the scene could have not been better set for a magnificent stay. The gite and it’s surroundings were immaculate with Amazing attention to detail. The gite was very spacious and very well equipped for our stay. There was a very thoughtful welcome box for our arrival and there was not a thing they hadn’t considered to make the stay very special. All 3 gites were at full occupancy( all equally done out) but we had shared and very private space and didn’t feel over looked . You can stay all year as well provided for also in winter months. The above ground pool was set in a lovely shared area with a hot tub for winter months and the covered area had lovely seating with superlatively comfortable sunbeds- some of the best we have enjoyed. Ali & Huard were the most welcoming and helpful people and nothing was too much trouble- even to rescuing us from the nearby town which happened to have all roads closed in for its annual fair, when our satnav did not cope with the roads being shut! There was only the sound of barn owls and wild life and occasional tractor to break into the wonderful peacefulness of the surroundings. And yet you were only 15 minutes from a beautiful town with lovely restaurants so not cut off if you wanted to experience lovely traditional French cuisine. We will return and would recommend this place with no hesitation to anyone looking for a bit of rural France, exceptional accommodation and charming and friendly helpful owners. Karen & Patrick

Peaceful Gite in rural Limousin
We enjoyed a wonderfully peaceful week at this well-equipped Gite which is fully accessible for wheelchair users (my wife is disabled and uses a power chair). This place really is a haven of tranquility, surrounded by gorgeous countryside and lovely villages, but not far from the city bustle of historic Limoges. Ali and Huard are wonderful hosts. Highly recommended!

An amazing rural retreat in the Limousin, France.
We stayed in the Bonne Nuit gite. Set in over 50 acres of beautiful French country side, magnificent views from every window, no near neighbours except our very special hosts, Ali and Huard, who make you feel very welcome and at home from the moment you arrive. Really pretty gite, clean and spacious and a well stocked welcome pack. Superb private pool, hot tub and terrace to soak up the sun. If you like walking there is plenty of opportunity to walk in Ali and Huard's fields or in the surrounding green lanes. There are some terrific restaurants nearby and interesting villages and château's to explore. Plenty of wildlife, deer, owls, buzzards, herons and storks to spot and Bill and Ben the pet donkeys are great fun.

Gites Les Palennes, the best Gites in France.
We stayed in the Rozel Gite, it was very spacious, beautifully finished and the attention to detail is fantastic. The views from the lounge across fields is delightful and the sunsets truly breathtaking. Everything about Gites Les Palennes gives a feeling of quality, the garden entertainment area is just perfect with a large above ground swimming pool and also large jacuzzi to relax in. Owners Ali & Huard made us feel totally relaxed and just couldn't do enough to make out holiday just perfect. I cannot recommend these gites highly enough, if stars could be awarded in a similar way to hotels, I would give them a 6 star. Thanks for making our holiday, just perfect.

If I could, I would live in this Gite - it's beautiful
The Gite and surrounding area was absolutely beautiful. The owners, Alison and Huard Fontaine made us feel so welcome with a lovely hamper of goodies. The Gite was well equipped with everything we needed. Whilst staying here, we visited some beautiful villages and towns - Brantome, Bourdeilles, Oradour-sur-glane (which is a village that has remained the same since it was burned by the SS in world war 2) and Perigoux to name just a few. I would definitely go back.

Fantastic getaway in an idyllic location.
We stayed in the Rozel Gite for a week during the summer in 2016, it proved to be a fantastic break to "recharge the batteries". The property is situated in over 55 acres of beautiful countryside and the owners Ali & Huard were perfect hosts, with much knowledge of the surrounding area, restaurants and local attractions. The Gite was spotless and extremely comfortable with everything included that we could want, including wifi. The "welcome basket" was a lovely touch. We can't wait to return this September and have already booked. Home from home!!! Over the years we have stayed in many types of accommodation in France and this is certainly the best.
