We spent 3 very pleasant days in a gite here, and enjoyed the hospitality of Denise and Michael, and daughter in law, Natasha, who cooked us two great dinners. A family business, with lots of warmth. Our children loved running around with the grandkids, and the big pool was a bonus. Only a small place, a few gites, in a...

Domaine de Palatz was our first accommodation on our brief tour of the region - and where we hoped we would have remained once we left. It offers home from home comforts whilst retaining that French charm with the most wonderful hosts to boot. We enjoyed such a wonderful stay, whiling away the evenings with a BBQ after days exploring...

If you are looking for a truly relaxing place, this would be in our top ten. The gites are wonderful, the acres set in vineyards make for great exploring. The pool was brilliant for our 4 year old (& us). There is as much or as little in this region as you care to do on your break. But the...

Sometimes when you travel quite a bit you can get jaded with how ordinary and how much of a muchness everywhere can be. Be prepared to experience genuine hospitality, brilliant facilities, and a truly differentiated experience. There are a series of gites of different sizes, so all sorts of combinations of friends travelling together works. The genius of the place...

We travelled around France for a month in June/July. Our approach to choosing accommodation was to look for unique properties situated out of the town centre but strategically located to the areas/places we wished to visit. Domaine de Palatz hits the bullseye. We stayed in some beautiful B&Bs along the thousands of kilometres we journeyed through French countryside but this...

“our b and b room was the first one you reach after walking up the path to the rooms. We were able to also have a look around two of the three gites, as it was changeover day. They are very stylish, and next to a large covered courtyard with lots of tables and chairs. One has its own sitting out area.”
