Indoors & Outdoors

Indoors

At the heart of this holiday home is a modern, double height open plan living, dining and kitchen area.  The comfy furnishings and bright décor welcome you in, and the double doors out onto the terrace and garden offer views of the valley, which are especially pretty at sunset.

The television has UK Sky television channels to keep the little ones entertained.  The kitchen is fully kitted out and there’s a utility room off the entrance hall with a washing machine.

Off to the left of the living area there is a small hallway leading onto two double bedrooms, both with twin beds which can be made into doubles.   They have plenty of storage space for all of your holiday clothes and toys, and share a large family shower room, with walk-in shower, sink, and loo.

To the right of the living area is a snug, with comfy sofa and doors leading out onto the covered terrace.  This could make an ideal play space for the little ones.

There is a second shower room with sink and loo and then a set of stairs leading up to a mezzanine master bedroom with king size bed, built in cupboard and double aspect views over the countryside.  There is space in all of the bedrooms for a cot.  

Le Merisier has central heating and air conditioning throughout so it will always be the ideal temperature.

Outdoors

Though this is a newly built holiday home, it has been built in a traditional style with exposed stonework and bright paintwork, so blends well into the hamlet.  There is ample room for parking and the large enclosed garden surrounds the property, offering lots of space to play in.

Both sets of rear patio doors lead out onto the covered terrace area where you can dine alfresco or relax on the comfy patio furniture that looks out across the rear play area.  There is lots of space to run around in, kick a ball, do roly-polies and cartwheels or simply soak up the sunshine.

There is also a purpose built barbecue where you can cook up some of the local produce.

Parent point:

  • There are two small steps down from the terrace to the barbecue area, so be vigilant with toddlers

When you have enjoyed your own private outdoor space why not take a 10 minute stroll down into Longeveau, where you will find lots of exciting activities on offer.

What's Around?

If you fancy a day out exploring this beautiful region of France then you will find there are lots of places to visit that will appeal to the whole family.

Saint-Séverin

Saint-Séverin is five kilometres from Longeveau with several small shops, including a bakery, butcher, chemist and supermarket.  There is also a popular small market every Thursday morning.

Aubeterre-Sur-Dronne

In the opposite direction, about the same distance from Longeveau, is one of France's most beautiful villages: Aubeterre-Sur-Dronne.  Explore the charming narrow streets of the village with its many quality gift shops and street cafes.

The puppet theatre in the central square is popular with all ages, with classic tales such as Beauty and the Beast and Ali Baba.  The shows are so popular that you should definitely book in advance if you want to go.

The river beach is a short walk from the town and is great for all of the family.  Perfect for picnics and paddling, there's also a children's playground, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and a cafe.

Riberac

An attractive, but relatively quiet town, Riberac is buzzing on a Friday morning when it stages one of the biggest and best markets in the Dordogne.

Just 16km from Longeveau, there are also lots of local shops, including wine caves, a couple of big supermarkets and plenty of child-friendly restaurants.  Free music evenings are held in the town square on Tuesday nights in July and August.

Angoulème

A 45 minute drive from Longeveau, take a trip to Angoulème, which has stunning architecture, local markets and lots of shopping.  There’s a range of cafes and family-friendly restaurants to grab a bite to eat in.

The kids will love a visit to Kizou Adventures, which is in the shopping zone.  It is a massive indoor playground, which has ball pools and soft play for children aged from six months up to 10 years.  A few doors down, there’s also a Laser Quest Adventure Zone.

Beaches

If you fancy a beach trip, there are a few choices about a two hour drive from Longeveau.  Arcachon and Royan both have great beaches, warm water and family-friendly facilities.

The sandy beaches of Arcachon are home to a beautiful promenade, which has lots of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.  In June to September, you can also visit the water park Aqualand, which has something for all ages.

The stunning beaches of Royan have a main two-kilometre long La Grande Conche, which has its own children section.  In the summer months, this section has a lifeguard and lots of activities.

And more...

A host of other leisure activities are available within the local area from jet skiing and quad biking to mini-golf and go-karting.   The local villages and towns also host a variety of family-friendly festivals, fetes and fireworks displays throughout the summer.
