Originally a working farm, the stone farmhouse and barns have been rejuvenated and renovated sympathetically to allow our guests to relax and unwind in seclusion. Our guests have use of the swimming pool, hot tub , sun loungers and parasols at their leisure and the partially covered pool terrace also has a BBQ, al-fresco eating area, chimeneas and comfortable seating for those summer evenings and cooler autumn nights. Rozel is a disabled ‘friendly,’ one bedroom, spacious ground floor gîte with its own private patio and garden area. 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.More

About the neighbourhood
Beautiful, unspoilt countryside, share your surroundings with the wonderful wildlife and birds, from wild deer to birds of prey and the several species of owls that make Les Palennes their home. We are a 5 minute drive from supermarkets, pharmacy, butchers, boulangeries and great restaurants and bars. There are numerous lakes a short drive away, as well as horse riding, go-karting, golf, green lanes for walking or cycling, and fishing is also plentiful.
