A guided tour of La Longere, our Perigourdian farmhouse.


The south-facing verandah is the piece de resistance at La Longere. If you love outdoor living, then this is where you will be mostly spending your time. There are two dining tables which, when placed end to end, can seat up to 20 people. There's a huge barbecue, complete with chimney, and a charming front garden which is fully enclosed. Access to the verandah is directly off the farmhouse kitchen/diner, perfect for easy catering and, of course, the views across the valley are amazing.


The kitchen diner is full of character, with thick limestone walls, a charming old staircase and exposed wooden beams. The focal point is the large fireplace which, on a cool day, throws out enough heat to reach most parts of the house. The large dining table, made from an old barn door, comfortably seats 8. And the kitchen itself is fully equipped with modern appliances, including a fan-assisted oven, a fridge freezer and twin compact dishwashers. Together, the kitchen diner and the verandah form the heart of the farmhouse and when the house is fully occupied this tends to be where the action is!


The bedrooms are rather charming, a blend of modern chic and French vintage style. Upstairs there are two spacious, south-facing double bedrooms (#1 & #2) which are very bright and airy. There's also a twin bedroom (#3). Bedroom #2 is accessed through bedroom #3 so this is worth bearing in mind if there are two or more families sharing the space (see the floor plan for details). A family barhroom serves the upstairs bedrooms, as does a separate loo. There's another double bedroom (#4) served by its own separate bathroom & loo.


The cosy living room is accessed off the farmhouse kitchen/diner and comfortably sits 8 people. It has both English TV channels (provided by a Sky Freesat receiver) and French channels (delivered over digital terrestrial). There's also a DVD player and a good selection of DVDs with some French-themed films including Chocolat, Cyrano de Bergerac and The Hundred Years War. There's a small selection of books and games.

Amazing views and large garden area, perfect for families and those wishing to find a secluded spot!
