About the property

La Fontaine Rouillee, near Plessala, a beautiful tranquil rural area where it is so easy to relax away from the pressures of everyday life

La Vieille Longere is a character ancient long-house that combines restored original features with up-to-date facilities.

Located in La Fontaine Rouillee, a peaceful rural hamlet with extensive views to the distant forest, just over 3km from Plessala a vibrant and friendly small town.

Very comfortably furnished and extensively equipped for year round self-catering rentals, this holiday let really is a home from home. The gite accommodation provides good communal living space with far reaching views and a well equipped kitchen. There are two spacious ensuite bedrooms on the first floor - one a double the other a twin room and an additional double bedroom with small adjacent shower room on the ground floor.

Wi-Fi, UK TV channels, a selection of books, games and dvds plus large scale local maps are provided. In addition to the wood burner, individually controlled panel radiators throughout keep the longere comfortable out of summer months. British guests do not need to bring plug adaptors as a multi-point UK socket adaptor is supplied in each room.

Outside the large private terrace is great for outdoor dining or relaxing on a sun lounger. This is a perfect place to wind down and enjoy the stars in clear night skies or watch the birds, hares and deer that share this beautiful tranquil area.

The hamlet is ideally located for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers, close to a river and forest. From the front door there are walks along country lanes; explore the nearby River Lie with its restored watermill, follow the marked trails into Loudeac Forest, or admire the view from the tiny chapel on top of the hill.

For days out, it is just 10km from the intersection of major routes through Brittany, meaning La Vieille Longere is also an excellent touring base.

About Penny McClure

We completely renovated La Vieille Longere during 2005 and started renting it as a gîte in 2006, since when we have aimed to provide a well equipped and comfortable holiday let that would enjoy staying in ourselves.

Our own home in Brittany is next door, so we are on hand to assist guests with any queries they may have, but take care not intrude on their holiday (we have separate outdoor spaces).

We're delighted to be members of Your Holiday Matters, membership cannot be bought and is only awarded to owners who demonstrate that they really care about providing a consistently high level of customer service and accommodation.

We run and maintain our gîtes ourselves and are pleased that this personal touch has resulted in regular repeat guests, who we welcome back year on year.

Why Penny McClure chose Loudeac area

As soon as we arrived at the tiny hamlet of La Fontaine Rouillee we knew this was the right place for for us. We walked around the longere and took in the wonderful open view across the valley to the forest and we were sold!

When we bought the property the local community could not have been more welcoming, although the houses in this area of Brittany are well spread out amongst the rolling landscape the inhabitants really do care about one another.

We still particularly enjoy exploring neighbouring towns and villages, searching out traditional auberges for long lunches before a peaceful walk alongside the River Lie.

What makes this house unique

La Vieille Longere was renovated specifically with couples sharing a holiday or small groups of adults in mind, which is why we installed an ensuite shower room for each first floor bedroom.

The property can sleep six guests in comfort, but it seems to be most popular with parties of four looking for space to spread out - so we price for this number and apply a small linen / utilities surcharge for larger groups.

Although there are no specific disabled facilities, the downstairs bedroom and adjacent shower room make life easier for any guests wishing to avoid stairs. This layout also allows us to give individual couples the option to rent just the ground floor at a discounted rate.

The most relaxing holiday, very helpful owners, spotlessly clean accommodation. The longere was perfect for us, we will return and will recommend it to others. We especially enjoyed lunching at the local restaurant.
