The main pool 10m x 5m has a fabulous position with panoramic views & in full sun from dawn to dusk. It is fenced, gated & alarmed to French standards.

The magic of Le Paloume: The beauty & tranquillity of Le Paloumé makes it a very special place. After the sunset of their 1st. evening guests have visibly relaxed; worlds away from stress & cares.

On entering their cottage they see at once that their comfort & convenience has been fully thought out. The table is laid & their meal (if ordered) is ready on the stove.

In the morning a basket of fresh croissants & bread awaits them on their terrace – a perfect start to the first day of their holiday. There is masses to do in the area but when relaxing with a book beside the pool (or in front of a log fire) is all you want to do; choose from our extensive library: novels, thrillers, biography, factual, literature, children’s & still more novels…All our guests say that the weekly dinners are a high point; good food, good wine & good company on the candle lit terrace; our dark skies brilliant with stars.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

The cottage is gorgeous, the hospitality is great the views are beyond words, the FOOD IS AMAZING, and the animals are so SWEET! All in all a very memorable stay. Thanks!
Lynne, Mark, Louse & Ken English, Norwich. -

Everything you need & nothing you don’t need! And spotlessly clean.
Mandy Nettlemill & family. -

We came exhausted & left renewed….
Wonderful food & company at the “Cherry Time” dinner (banquet). Thank you all for your kindness, hospitality & warmth of welcome.
Adrian & Helen Thorp. -

Ideal spot for group visits, so much to share with friends. We shall return.
Gillian & Jack Penrose, Somerset. -

The main attraction was the animals (better than the peace, quiet & wonderful views etc.) They made it for the kids (8, 8, and 5). Thanks again for letting them feed & help generally. Hope you have as much fun, future visitors. We’ll be back.
Nicki, Steve, Philippa, Alex & Guy. -

Our 5th. year & as wonderful as ever.
Paula, John, Matt & James, Horsham.

Brilliant, excellent week high in the mountains, Jane and Felix are excellent hosts, and the communial meal was a highlight. Nearly lost the dogs on a walk, but thankfully they returned, would certainly consider returning. Spain is just down the road, and an hour from the beach in France, plenty of walks, an ideal get away from it all break
