About this property

Idyllically Situated Period Countryside Property. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Situated at the end of a private road (just 5 minutes from the N24) and south facing Le Ferme (Longere) de la Ville Voisin overlooks a patchwork of spectacular uninterrupted countryside views.  A recent renovation, the Longere boasts all modern comforts while maintaining all its period features -  downstairs underfloor heating using the latest air heat exchanging technology, exposed beams and stone work.  Access to wi-fi and French and English tv.

Guests are able to enjoy the adjoining 30 acres of woodland walks and gardens, as well as the heated outdoor pool, lawns for playing croquet, boules and table tennis and a field for football.
A stones throw away from the 'voie verte', forgotten railway lines and canal paths that have been upgraded to provide an excellent unmotorised network of paths for the public to use. Whether on foot, horseback or on a bike this incredible scenic facility is available to anyone for miles!  We are on the edge of the Broceliande Forest with all the mysteries of King Arthur to explore as well as an area of amazing natural beauty. Golf, sailing and watersports are available at Lac au Duc, along with the Hydrangea walk.
