“Manoir de 'Longe - Beau!!'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

Longeveau was the amazing venue for a friends wedding, Set in the French rolling hills, it is a gem hidden from the masses. Having travelled with a wedding party of approx 100 it made an idealic setting for such a prestigious event. The staff at Longeveau are amazing, they are so accommodating to their visitors needs are go out of they way to please.

The accommodation are all unique with so much character yet have fully functioning facilities making eating in as easy as going out.

Longeveau has an amazing golf course. As a 'non' golfer i was proud of 1 under on the final par 3! Tennis courts are available and a communal pool always amazes.

I could not think of a better wedding venue as this has it all, It even had AMAZING hot weather for the duration of our trip.

Well done to all behind the scenes at Longeveau you have definitely got this one right!!

Walking around the grounds of the Manoir de Longveau is a pleasure for young and old. There's lots of nature (Butterflies and very vocal Frogs!), a golf course, pool, tennis courts and the historical rental cottages themselves to see. We visited for a wedding and what a lovely one it was too. White chairs were laid out on the grass over looking the scenery with fabric and trinkets hanging from fruit trees. The barn was used for the reception decorated with fairy lights. The staff worked extremely hard but still had time to dance and celebrate too. The cottages were lovely, decorated well and had everything we needed. Fresh croissants, bread and pain au chocolat are delivered daily (need to put your order in the day before) A car is essential and we would recommend visiting the very quaint and colourful town of Aubeterre near by. Well done Manoir we had a lovely time!

We visited Longeveau over the Easter weekend with our two sons (ages 8 and 10) and other family friends. Our gite was gorgeous with amazing views over the neighbouring farmland. It was fully equipped, very clean and spacious with an enormous covered balcony off the first floor living area with outdoor table and chairs and comfortable sofas. We ordered croissants and bread daily from the bar area, which was great with two hungry boys in the morning. There was plenty to do to keep the boys busy with tennis courts, an outdoor pool, two play areas, golf, plenty of games in the bar area and exploring, which meant we had a very relaxing break. The staff were all fantastic and very helpful. We can't wait to go back.

We had a lovely week in Longeveau and found the staff to be fabulous. Really helpful and friendly and made our stay really special. We have one daugther aged 4 and we had some lovely days relaxing at Longeveau which we could all enjoy, playing tennis, having barbeques and swimming etc. We were staying in a gite on the central courtyard and it felt like a very safe and social environment for our little girl. The environment and layout was good in that it was easy to be sociable if you wanted but you could also keep yourself more private when you felt like it. It is also very well positioned for days out, such as wine orientated trips for the adults or lakes with beaches and playgrounds for our daughter. It was early in the season so not everything on site was in full swing (such as the restaurant) but we would love to visit again later in the Summer when everything at Longeveau and the local area is up and running.

We stayed in the Distillery gite at the Manoir Longeveau over Easter 2013 and had a fantastic time. The accommodation was clean and tastefully decorated throughout, it was very comfortable and spacious and we even got to make the most of the patio and loungers in the sunshine. The facilities - the bar, golf course, tennis courts and pools were of an excellent standard, and the warm welcome from Rick, Lynn, Richard and Olivia was lovely - nothing was too much trouble and they wanted to make sure everyone was happy and enjoying themselves. I would strongly recommend the wine tasting with Rick, as well as being fun you also get to learn some great little facts that can help you bluff your way to sounding like a wine expert!! The local village of Aubeterre is very picturesque and had some good restaurants and quaint shops. A hire car is a must, but the Manoir Longeveau is well worth a visit.

We visited Le Manoir back in August but felt compelled to write as we are looking to book again! We had a lovely stay split between two cottages our favourite of which was Les Jolie Arches. We have two smallish girls (3 and 4) at the time and we all really enjoyed it. My husband particularly enjoyed the social tennis and the girls had a great time with Lorraine in the crèche on a couple of mornings - such a treat to lie in the sun and read a book for a change!
Al the staff were helpful and were brilliant in arranging a dr's appointment for one of the girls.
I do have a few suggestions though that would really improve things for those with little ones such as ours and I do hope they might be implemented. Firstly the 'playground' near the bar area was seriously lacking. The see- saw was verging on dangerous and really needed to be replaced but more equipment in this area is really needed. It is great to be able to have a drink on holiday whilst chd play and this would be a real benefit to all parents if this area was properly equipped and maintained. I am not suggesting an adventure playground but some more low level equipment would be really appreciated. Secondly the larger playground area was also not brilliant and would benefit from being expanded to cater for those between say 4 and 8. The area was ideal as it was a little way from most of the cottages so play did not disturb the peace but it was not adequately shaded from the sun. I also know that the crèche suffered with sun problems too. Both areas would really benefit from a sail shade - easy to install, relatively inexpensive and easy to maintain but an addition of one for the crèche and one or two to shade the playground would be a real improvement.
Lastly it would be really wonderful if the bar would deliver meals to the cottages on request. So one could place an order from the menu and have it delivered to the cottage so parents can enjoy an evening off cooking without the need for a babysitter. This would surely drum up more business for the restaurant and benefit guests too.
This is a wonderful place to stay and I would thoroughly recommend it - in fact I already have a friend who has booked for the summer as a result of our reports but these few issues would make a big difference if implemented.
I could go on about its merits but have probably said enough. Just one more thing - if you have children the horse riding is not to be missed - inexpensive and pure bliss for 2 little girls on Shetlands just their size - really memorable.

Good, quality accomodation in a very picturesque area. We visisted ib September 2012. The facilities are top notch, whilst having retained the French style. Although I know the area is overrun by the british, my only gripe is that absolutely everything is in English - from the signs on the wall, to the staff. Could easily have fooled someone to believe they were actually in the UK on a nice summers day!
