About the property

Thoughtfully Renovated Cottages at the Family Resort, Le Manoir de Longeveau..

Le Four à Pain is one of the original gites at Longeveau, located in a corner of the classical French courtyard at Longeveau, under the shade of a magnificent lime tree. This former bakery has been thoughtfully renovated into a charming cottage and retains many of the original features.

The open plan kitchen, dining and living room is a pleasant and relaxing space, featuring the original bread ovens. To the rear is a private and sunny garden from which the swimming pools can be easily accessed (but which are also fully secure!). Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom with separate bath and shower. The split level master bedroom is accessed though a small stone doorway. The twin room and 'bijou' single room are perfect for small children. A little tight for grown ups, but both have full size, single beds and space to put your clothes.

The property comes equipped with all of your tableware and kitchen requirements and laundry facilities are provided close by. Extra equipment is available on request, particularly for babies and children.The garden is furnished with sun loungers, outside dining and a BBQ, perfect for the long summer days!.

Independent reviews are available online.

Lovely, but overpriced

  • 4 of 5

Lovely resort, but very rural with not a huge amount to do in the area. Resort was very pleasant, fine facilities for young kids and a golf course, tennis courts, etc, for older guests. No aircon in the property though which, along with lack of wifi and tv, was disappointing for the price being paid.

About the area

The region is known for it’s great climate with sun drenched summers, rolling green hills and valleys as far as you can see, and all the history you could ever need. The food and drink is superb and the people are welcoming. The area is a paradise for wine lovers who may wish to visit the numerous chateaux and wine caves on the Bordeaux wine trail.

Longeveau is located on the Charente / Dordogne border in a beautiful valley in rural South West France. Nearby villages are full of activity, with places to visit, dine and drink. The picturesque old Roman town of Aubeterre, which was recently listed as one of the prettiest villages in France is only a bike ride away. Wander up through the winding streets to the 12th century subterranean church carved out of the rock or enjoy a drink on the village square with it’s variety of shops, eateries and museums, all overlooked by a 1000 year old chateau. Alternatively walk down to the river beach for a swim, relax or a bite to eat.

Slightly further are the market towns of Chalais and Riberac (with one of the biggest markets in France!). Further still, about a 45 minute drive, are the capital towns of Angouleme and Perigeux which offer a wider and more sophisticated range of shops in a typically French setting. Brantome, nicknamed the ‘Venice of Perigord’ is well worth a visit at a similar distance.

Also within easy reach are towns such as St. Emilion, Bergerac, Cognac and Bordeaux, all famous for their wines and spirits and equally beautiful places to visit. Beyond Bordeaux are the unspoilt beaches of the Atlantic coast with several superb resorts all within a reasonable drive.

Local activities range from walking, sight seeing, tree climbing, canoeing, cycling, fishing, or even jet–skiing and quad biking to name but a few. Wine tasting and degustation are of course a staple part of the French experience!

There are a variety of local festivals, fetes and firework displays that take place throughout the summer in the local villages and towns. These are aimed at all ages and generally take place between the months of June and September.

Children will find plenty to occupy themselves and their families with activities ranging from crazy golf, horse riding and tree top adventure's to daytrip’s to the popular attractions of Aqualand Water Park, La Palmyre Zoo and Futurescope.

Longeveau is fortunate to have a number of very good restaurants in the area, ranging from cafés to fine dining. As with everything, our staff will be happy to recommend or help you with decisions or to make reservations for you.

Le Four à Pain is one of the original gites at Longeveau, located in a corner of the classical French courtyard at Longeveau, under the shade of a magnificent lime tree and close to all of our amenities, including our main, heated pool.
