Chez Grelon, Longeveau
About the home
This beautiful country house is set in the Charentaise countryside, close to Longeveau. It has been finished to the highest standards and delivers everything you could need for a truly relaxing and memorable holiday.
The house has recently been renovated, offering a wonderful blend of contemporary design and authentic period features.
On entering the property past the Pigeonier tower, pass though into the lounge, complete with English TV, DVD, an iPod dock and wifi. Further on, the second lounge and dining room lead into a beautiful kitchen, with granite worktop and plenty of space for preparing you holiday banquets! The house is equipped with dishwasher, washing machine and all of the utensils you will need for your holiday.
Upstairs, all of the bedrooms are spacious and light, with exposed stone walls throughout. There are two double bedrooms, one with en-suite. The third room is perfect for children, with 3 x single beds. A large family bathroom with separate shower and bath, plus a small chill out area, complete the upstairs.
The garden terrace stretches the length of the house, stepping down to a small garden adjoining the heated pool. An outside dining area and plenty of sun loungers will ensure you make the most of the long summer days. And thoughtful illumination of the terrace and pool will ensure you can enjoy it well into the night! Two larger garden areas offer plenty of space to play in (with fencing to stop the little ones escaping!)
Guests staying at Chez Grelon will benefit from all of the services and facilities offered at Longeveau, including the bar & restaurant, golf, tennis and treatment room. Plus our staff are on hand should you require any assistance during your stay. But staying at Chez Grelon offers you something a little more secluded. A helping of glamour, with plenty of peace and tranquility!

The Poitou-Charentes / Vendee / Charente region
The region is known for it's great climate with sun drenched summers, rolling green hills and valleys as far as you can see, plus 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.
The Aubeterre sur Dronne / Pillac area
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 voted one of the prettiest villages in France, is only a bike ride away. Discover 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 1,000 year old chateau. Alternatively walk down to the river beach for a swim, relax or a bite to eat.
The market town of Riberac (20 mins) has one of the biggest markets in France! The capital towns of Angouleme and Perigueux (45 mins) 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.
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 Futuroscope. 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.
