La Fontaine Rouillee Gîtes ~ La Vieille Longère ~ sleeps up to 5 ~ ideal for 4 adults
La Vieille Longère is a spacious, character, two storey gîte
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 five if required. For relaxing there are two sofas and a rocking chair; an efficient wood burner makes 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.

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 2 couples sharing a holiday, adult friends and grown-up families.
Our standard prices are based on up to 4 guests using the 2 upstairs bedroom suites, or 1 upstairs & 1 downstairs if preferred, however, for guests needing more bedroom space the 3rd bedroom is available as an option (if not required bedroom 3 is locked).
We recommend the space for 4 guests but we are insured for a maximum of 5 guests.
It has been especially designed for adults or older families (note: due to insurance restrictions the minimum guest age is 13 years old)
