Family Stayed August 2017
Just returned from our third family holiday at Longeveau and enjoyed this trip more than any other. The scenery is stunning, the staff so welcoming and their service is genuinely helpful and unfussy.
Family Stayed August 2016
Had an amazing time here during a very hot August holiday. Would highly recommend particularly for families. Stopped in Pressoir de Pierre gite. Would highly recommend as this has been furnished to a high standard. Met the owner of the gite who was so accommodating during our stay.
