The Grounds

Just 25 minutes from Bergerac airport by car and a short walk from the bastide town of Eymet, La Palanque’s estate sits impressively on the banks of the river Dropt. You can lose yourself (and your worries) in the 25 acre former army equestrian training centre.

The character of the 300 year old buildings has been carefully preserved, with modern amenities added to create a comfortable and relaxing environment both inside and outside.

On woodland walks about La Palanque, you’ll discover dens of tranquillity, in the shaded seating area scattered around the estate, relax on benches by the pond, or take a cat nap in one of the hammocks. Follow a bamboo path; will you end up by the river? Take your fishing rod just in case.

Adults and children alike can wander and enjoy the flower garden; pick fruit from the trees should it be the season, or cut some herbs for the evening meal from the herb garden.

The facilities feature a fenced 25 metre heated pool and a pool house with changing facilities, sun loungers and day beds. The communal terrace includes a kitchen, where our chef can rustle up pool side meals, including light lunches and evening BBQs. La Palanque (and its vicinity) has excellent facilities for all age ranges and tastes.
