We have just returned from a week staying at Longeveau in 'Les Jolies Arches'. Cannot express enough what a beautiful place it is, fantastic views and the staff are so very helpful and friendly. Our accommodation had an amazing view overlooking the golf course and had everything you could possible need, full of rustic charm and very comfortable. This was our most relaxing holiday ever! The children had great fun in the outdoor pool, enjoyed the tennis and really enjoyed their holiday. There are pretty villages close by with great restaurants to choose from. We can definitely recommend Longeveau as a brilliant holiday which will leave you wanting to return for more!!

A fantastic rustic and relaxing hide away in SW France which has all accommodation on site, a 9 hole golf course, tennis, treatment, pools, beautiful views, great food & friendly staff.
The manoir itself and views surrounding are exquisite. Local villages hold markets daily and a trip to Bordeaux is only an hour and a half by car.
Nearest airport Limoges, again about an hour and a half away.
Perfect location to just get away and switch off!

Room Tip: each gite is different to suit numbers, every one is quirky and comfortable

All the love, hard work and attention to detail that has been invested in Longeveau by the owners over the years make it a truly wonderful place to spend some time. I stayed in the Pigeonniere, a small yet perfectly formed gite close to the main building where a couple or a few friends can stay very comfortably in the two bedrooms (1 double /1 twin) and open plan living area. Doors leading to a terrace with views of the beautiful countryside complement the accommodation perfectly and demand you sit there with a glass or two of wine.

The staff at Longeveau cannot be more helpful and friendly, nothing is a problem. The stunning bar area provides a great location to meet people and make new friends following a day enjoying the on site activities. Unwind with tales of how your tennis skills could have got you to Wimbledon or that tee shot on hole 6 would have made Tiger Woods jealous. There is a safe pool area for the children and even an on site massage therapist if you over do it or just fancy a relaxing treatment in the Spa.

Longeveau has a lot to offer and when the restaurant re-opens with a new chef in summer it will be even more perfect for a holiday that will suit the whole family.

Having spent 2 weeks staying in Manoir de Longeveau, I can honestly say that I loved it. Excellent and friendly staff, stylish accommodation and a beautiful setting, not to mention the excellent tennis and golf available on site. I would definitely recommend Longeveau for holidaymakers and weddings alike, you will not be disappointed.

We have just got back from our annual holiday, staying in one of the gites called La Grangette, perfect for a family of four (two adults and two young children).

As per usual the staff were excellent. Very thoughtful and diligent whenever things were requested. We found the main pool too cold for the younger kids but after a mention from a couple of parents (inc. myself) the temperature did improve sufficiently for the kids to be able to play for long periods of time being too cold. My boy learnt to swim so we are seriously chuffed !

La Grangette was absolutely fine. It was clean and tidy and functional. It had everything it needed to be a good holiday gite. The location was great as well. Slightly tucked away but close enough for everything. A great plus was that it has dishwasher and washing machine - my two absolute necessities. The beds were very comfortable although the master bed was a little on the short side - my husband is 5ft 10 and his feet were dangling off the bed ! Having the garage was brilliant as it meant the car was always cool when we got in. For a disabled person and their family this place would be ideal.

The social tennis and BBQ night was one of the highlights. I have to mention Barry the tennis coach. He is one of the true legends of Longeveau. I hope when we return next year he will be there for a bit more 'down across to up with a bit of spin for free !'

The creche is as always amazing and one of the hat tricks that Longeveau has to offer. Lorraine the manager ... we love you !!! The kids think you are the best thing since sliced bread. Can't fault her or her amazing team of angels (aka the creche workers and babysitters). The creche is a life saver for all parents who just need 3 hours 3 times a week to read a book or lie in the sun or have a late breakfast or go into town ... the list is endless ! The kids always have fun and with all the toys/arts and crafts to do they are never bored Also take full advantage of the babysitting. Mary was our wonder woman for evenings out and we made full use of her great skills with over tired children who just wouldn't go to sleep !

We have made so many friends, as have our children. Hello Ali, George and Livi !!! xxxxxxxxx

My only gripe about Longeveau, which is the reason why I have given it a Very Good and not an Excellent, is because of the events being held there during peak holiday season. While we were there there were 2 evening events (an evening with Les Dennis for €15/head and Delimitri with dinner and drinks for €40/head). There was also Alvin Stardust but that was cancelled at short notice (thank goodness !) There was also a big birthday lunch party for non-residents that went on until late afternoon in the communal area. While we appreciate that Longeveau is a business, there comes a point in time when the the lines were blurred between being a safe holiday location for families and one which opens itself to many people coming in and out on a daily basis, plus associated implications. I hope this is addressed next year.

Looking forward already to our next trip to Longeveau xxx

Longeveau is a superb set up that caters very well for children and families. You will find yourself welcomed into the ethos of Longeveau - one of relaxation, children making instant friends, and never hearing them say 'I'm bored'. Lovely families there and myself and my two children (aged 9 & 5) have returned from 'the best week ever - it was epic!' (said George, age 9). We stayed in Le Porcherie which was delightful. I highly recommend it.

We stayed at Longueveau in one of the Puygironde properties a little up the hill. The property itself (La Fermette) was well equiped and had a lovely little garden area. It is about 10 minutes walk toddler pace to the main complex. We loved the little bar and enjoyed the food in the restaurant. The tennis courts are great and you can get on them easily. We used the pool which we enjoyed but not the golf course.

My main praise is for Lorraine and her team at the creche. For anyone with the slightest concern about leaving their babies with Lorraine, rest assured, this lady knows what she is doing. We left a two year old and a one year old with her for three mornings in her aladdins cave of toys and games and they had a ball. No tears on drop off; no tears on pick up. Further to that, she (and her colleague Ros) babysat for us on three nights and both times had to deal with non sleeping tearful children which they did brilliantly. I would recommend them unreservedly.

Only one gripe for Longueveau to deal with. SHADE - come on guys - UV protective sails can be purchased for under £100 - your toddler area outside the bar needs them - as does the creche garden. For a relatively small investment, you could eliminate the one concern I (and a number of other parents we spoke to) raised.
