La Fontaine Rouillee Gîtes ~ La Vieille Longère ~ sleeps up to 6 ~ ideal for 4 adults
La Vieille Longère is a spacious, character, two storey gîte especially designed for adults and older families. (please note this property is only available to guests aged 13+)
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.
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 diners in comfort, or a maximum of six if required. For relaxing there are two large sofas and a rocking chair with the efficient wood burner to make the room cosy in cooler months.
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
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.
The bedroom/shower room layout of the longère makes it particularly popular with 2 couples sharing a holiday, adult friends, or families with older children, as it provides private ensuite facilities for these first floor bedrooms
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. Shrubs and herb planters edge the terrace; beyond which you can access our open paddock dotted with oak and apple trees.
For guests needing more bedrooms, there is an optional third bedroom on the ground floor, this pretty double room has French doors to the terrace and is immediately adjacent to the downstairs wc / 3rd shower-room (if not required bedroom 3 is locked).

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 2m long beds, ample storage space, mirror, easy chair, radiator
