Once a small barn, fronting the courtyard at Longeveau. Retaining its pride of place, it has now been cleverly converted into a cozy, 3 person cottage. La Petite Grange consists of a kitchen at ground level, stepping up to a double height dining and living area, making the most of the original oak timbers and stonework. A single room is located to the side and a shower room / w.c plus the mezzanine double room are accessed from a short flight of stairs.

A private southwest facing garden ensure you will get the most from the long sunny days. Added to this, its easy (and secure) access through to the swimming pool and children's paddling pool, plus all the facilities you could need just a stones throw away. This property can fit four with a small double bed downstairs if you don't mind a bit of a squeeze!

The property comes equipped with all of your tableware and kitchen requirements and laundry facilities are provided close by.

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 two-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. Golf and tennis coaching is available from local English speaking PGA / CCA qualified professionals.

For our younger guests, there is a play area, a toddlers play area, a secret play house and a crèche that runs throughout the summer. Our restaurant serves great food and shares a terrace with the bar, with south facing views across the grounds and the valley.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne 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/Verteillac

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.

"We loved it so much at Longeveau that we're going back in 2014."

We were recommended Le Manoir de Longeveau by friends and it fulfilled all our expectations. We stayed in La Petite Grange, which was a pretty little barn conversion with a garden that backed the swimming pool. We had everything we needed in the property and we were very cosy and comfortable. We all loved it at Le Manoir. The location is idyllic; the swimming pool, tennis courts, barn and ping pong ample entertainment for our two older children and the playground was great for our little one. The staff couldn't have done more to help and there's a real family feeling about the place. We can't wait until next summer - when we'll be back!!!

"Beautiful setting, friendly people, the perfect family holiday!"

We've just come back from one week at Longeveau, and I can't recommend it enough. We don't play golf or tennis, but had a wonderful time. The location is great - an hour and 20mins from… More
