Holiday Rental House
The Longere is a renovated farmhouse which is one of two of the properties forming La Cerisaie (see our own website for the other property). It is in a very rural position, just south of Le Lude in Maine-et-Loire. Le Lude is +- 40kms between Le Mans, Tours and Saumur. The Longere has 3 bedrooms - 2 x 2 3ft single beds and 1 x superking bed. The superking bedroom has an ensuite shower room and there is also a family bathroom with shower. The dining room seats 8. The lounge has a woodburner and a bread oven. The playroom has two chair beds (guests must bring their own bedding for these), thus affording accommodation for an extra two people. There is also a travel cot (guests must bring their own bedding for this).

There is also a travel cot (guests must bring their own bedding for this). Access to the Grey Room is via its own staircase from the kitchen, which means that upstairs it is not possible to get to the other bedrooms from it. We would suggest that if you are coming with small children you request the Teal and Lime rooms so that you are all together in the one part of the house. The garden is still under renovation, but there is a large patio complete with table, chairs, umbrella and loungers plus a large lawned area suitable for French cricket and the front has a gravel courtyard with plenty of parking space and could be used for boules!More

We stayed here in summer 2016. The property has been renovated to a high standard, with plenty of thought put in to keep all ages occupied: a well-stocked games room for kids and two fridges to keep cheese-eating adults happy! There is a large garden...More

Thanks James - we aim to please! Glad the lack of coast didn't deter you from choosing La Cerisaie, especially as you mentioned the man-made beaches!

The Longere is a great house - even though we had read other reviews we were still amazed at how big it is! The house is kept spotlessly clean, well maintained and it is well equipped. There were lots of little extras provided by the...More

We had a lovely week here in the Loire Valley. The house is beautiful and so spacious - couldn't have asked for more. Big garden too, perfect for French cricket or petanque!! We loved the location - near enough to towns/cities but remote enough that...More

About the neighbourhood
The Loire valley, being a world heritage site, will keep you occupied every day, with so much to see and do. Chateaux (such as Villandry with its famous gardens, Usse known as the Sleeping Beauty chateau, Saumur, Bauge, Chambord and even Chateau du Clos Luce which was Leonardo da Vinci's last residence with models etc, to name but a few), cathedrals, churches, vineyards and wine tasting (the lovely towns of Saumur, Angers and Chinon are all part of the Loire Valley vineyards famous for the gorgeous wines that they produce) and troglodyte caves. Tours (with its airport) and Le Mans (which is without doubt the Mecca of motor racing) both have beautiful old towns. Our nearest village is Broc, approximately 4 kms away – it has a small, typically French, basic village shop with a bread station...
How to get there
During the summer months, there are flights into Angers.
