Thank you so much for your complementary review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your week at the cottage and that you found the facilities adequate. I'm also glad that the weather was good enough for you to enjoy the garden. I'd be thrilled to welcome you back to the cottage next year and hope your experience will be even better next time. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with others here.

"An ideal retreat in the beautiful french countryside"

We have stayed at Longere Louise for our last two annual family summer holidays.It is beautifully presented with a super family size kitchen and a delightful garden for the children to play and explor… More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm so pleased that you chose it for two of your summer holidays. I'm glad you found the cottage well presented and that the farmhouse kitchen is roomy enough to prepare and enjoy family meals. It's also good to know that the children made full use of the garden. The rear lawn does provide a huge play space. Dining al fresco on the rear terrace makes it easy for all the family to join in! The cottage is in an outstanding location to visit some of the most beautiful villages and attractions in the area and Angles-sur-l'Anglin is just one of them. We always feel the cottage is a lovely rustic haven to return to after a busy day and are so happy that you enjoyed your stays there. We'd love to have you back.
