La Fontaine Rouillee Gîtes ~ La Vieille Longère, sleeps up to 4 (age 11+ only)
La Vieille Longère is a spacious character two storey gîte especially designed for adults or older families. (please note a minimum age of 11 applies to this property)
The holiday rental accommodation in our historic stone long-house is entered through a traditional Breton arched doorway which opens into the double height hall with vaulted ceiling, featuring original exposed oak beams.
Inside the gîte, to the left of the hall there is an open plan galley kitchen which has a large cooker with five ring gas hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and lots of equipment for self-catering at any time of year. The deep low window seat is a good place to keep an eye on dinner whilst enjoying a drink!
Opposite the kitchen there is a spacious dual aspect living room which has french doors that open onto the terrace. The dining table seats four in comfort and for relaxing there are two large sofas, a rocking chair and an efficient wood burner.
The flat screen TV receives UK free-to-air channels; a DVD player, radio and selection of books are also provided.
“I stayed in "La Vieille Longere" for a week and it was WONDERFUL!! The lovely home,
all of the ammenities, the fresh air and lovely country side is something which I
can recommend to anyone who wants to 'get out' and enjoy nature. I haven't slept
this well in years!” - Joan van Vliet, The Netherlands
The bedroom/shower room layout of the longère makes it particularly popular with couples sharing a holiday, small groups of adult friends and older families as it provides private facilities for each bedroom.
Upstairs there is small galleried landing with two en-suite bedrooms opposite each other, one is a large L-shaped twin room, the other is a comfortable double bedroom.
Outside the big rear patio area has a built-in BBQ, outdoor dining furniture and zero gravity sun loungers. The uninterrupted rural views from here are magnificent all year round. Raised stone planters and fruit bushes edge the terrace; beyond which you can access our open paddock dotted with oak and apple trees.
For guests wanting more bedrooms, there is an optional third bedroom on the ground floor, this pretty double has French doors to the terrace and is immediately adjacent to the downstairs wc / shower-room. (if not required bedroom 3 is locked)
Our own house in Brittany is next door to the longère gite, there are separate entrances
and outdoor spaces. We are on-hand to answer questions if required but we take care
not to intrude on our guests.
Each bedroom has ample storage space, mirror, easy chair, radiator and bedside lamps.
The shower rooms all have a shower cubicle,
wc, basin with mirror, light and power above, towel radiator, cupboard and
