About the Owner
About Le Palland
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!
Le Palland purchased this house in 2010
Why Le Palland chose Limoges area
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.
What makes this house unique
You'll enjoy the lovely rooms, the space, the pools and the local area. We are 5 minutes from St Leonard, and 30 kins from Limoges. It takes 45 minutes to the airport.
We can arrange catering for you, and have a wealth of local information. We are always on hand to help.
When booking we will email a booking form and deposit instructions. The stay should be paid in full 6 weeks before, and we ask for a 250 euro returnable deposit during the stay (to cover breakages etc).
Changeover day is Saturday unless otherwise arranged.
