La Maison Longue is a spacious cottage, built around the late 19th century (circa 1890) and constructed primarily of wattle and daub, with original exposed beams throughout. The cottage was formerly used as a stable and was part of a small working farm, which today still has the original barn with its amazing timber structure still intact. Approximately 25 years ago the farm was saved from dilapidation and later still, in 2006, our French holiday cottages (Le Petit Hameau) were created.

(It is said that the French résistance hid allied airmen at the farm during the Second World War; we can tell you more about this when you come to stay)

La Maison Longue was very comfortable and just what we needed for three days of exploring the 7 valleys. We had a great welcome from Keith and the generous welcome pack of eggs, butter, bread, wine, beer etc was a lovely touch. Keith is a mine of information about the area, especially the war history and took the time to...
