About the Owner
English owners. We bought Le Palland in January 2010, and have worked hard upgrading the accommodation and installing the swimming pools. We love the French way of life and are 'foodies', as well as enjoying French wines. We hope you'll love this place as much as we do!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have a guest book where people have written nothing but nice comments about the gite and food they have eaten here.
From the Owner
“The Limousin is often called the French lake district and it's beautiful. There is nothing better than a morning stroll around the lake, an evening aperitif on the dam, or a leisurely stroll around the estate. Le Palland is situated well for local tourist attractions, but is extremely peaceful too.”
