La Catalpa is named after the little Catalpa tree in the garden! It is a beautiful little barn conversion, in a remarkable location, and a deceptive amount of space. Full of character, and only a few minutes stroll down the lane to all of the facilties at Longeveau, it is very much the perfect holiday home!

Inside, an open plan living / dining area and kitchen, offer comfortable living space, with all of the bits and pieces you will need for your stay. The kitchen is fully equipped, with dishwasher, washing machine and all of the utensils you will need for your holiday banquets! The living room has TV (with English Sky Box) and views out the window to die for!

Downstairs the master bedroom (with en-suite) has double doors opening out onto the sun drenched terrace, which in turn opens onto the pool. Upstairs, are a further two bedrooms (double or twin), both with en-suites. The views from upstairs are even more spectacular, seeing all the way to the distant Dordogne..!

The garden is spacious and is secured, along with the pool, to ensure the little ones are safe. Le Catalpa is brimming with character, retaining many of the original oak beams, stonework and windows of the original barn.

Additional beds can be put in some properties for increased accommodation and twin or double combinations can be altered if required. Cots, high chairs and plenty of other baby bits are available if needed. Internet access, wifi and TV (with Sky Sports) are available from the bar, while some cottages have TV/DVDs. The garden is furnished with sun loungers, outside dining and a BBQ for the long summer days!

Please note that we have several other equally charming three-bedroomed cottages on site, as well as a choice of smaller or larger properties.

Longeveau itself is a very relaxed environment for families, groups and couples. Within the grounds we offer a range of facilities to make your holiday as relaxed or enjoyable as you wish it to be. As well as a superb range of facilities, we offer the opportunity for families or groups to socialise with others. Or simply appreciate the peace and quiet of your own company! Above all, we offer you the opportunity to relax, refresh and enjoy...

Our 'Salle de Soins' (treatment room) offers a range of massages and treatments for you to indulge in!

Our 9 hole FFG golf course is a challenge to golfers of all abilities. We have three all-weather tennis courts, a sports barn with compact tennis, basketball etc., a table tennis barn and boules pitch. We have five swimming pools (two heated / three private) plus a children's splash pool and plenty of space to relax in or explore.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee 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.

Aubeterre sur Dronne

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.
