About this property

A Wonderful Relaxing Gite . This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Holiday Wing of Beautiful Manoir with Pool

La Conflence is situated very close to the navigational confluence of 46N 0E on the edge of the village of Longre, Charente. We have extended our family Manoir to encompass another wing overlooking the lovely pool, converted into a 3 bedroom gite. All that we hope is that our guests that come to stay do realise that we are not a holiday complex and that they enjoy their holiday, the pool, the large secure garden and above all relax here as much as we do. Enjoy the surroundings of our elegant 19th century building with all that it entails. From the comfortable and spacious rooms with all the modern appliances, you would expect when being at home away from home.

Some previous reviews:

McMillian Family - August 2019 - We had a wonderful week. The gite is very nicely laid out, well appointed and located in a charming village. It is very well placed for excellent family holiday activities such as horse riding, river canoeing and velo rail cycling and more, while Keith and Maxine are very warm and welcoming hosts, always on hand to make the stay feel stress free. We received a lovely welcome basket of provisions on arrival too which was a very nice touch after the drive from the UK. The lovely pool and garden games also provided great fun for all the family during our week - all in all a great time - thank you very much.

Jules, Lee, Astrid and Dylan with Mai Roden. August 2018.
We have just spent a wonderful week at Maxine and Keith's beautiful home. We were made to feel so welcome (including our dog) and nothing was too much trouble.
We had a lovely welcome basket when we arrived and all amenities we needed were to hand.
The pool was fantastic and we had a lovely private outdoor seating area along with the beautiful grounds that we were welcome to use.
We wouldn't hesitate to book another holiday with them and hope to do so soon.

August 2018 - We are very happy with our stay in your cottage. I hope it's the same for you. We really appreciated the comfort and the decoration of the house, the terrace and its barbecue, the big garden with its activities, the tennis court and of course the swimming pool! :-) We will not fail to recommend your address to our friends! In the meantime, I wish you a beautiful end of summer!

Maxine and her family were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a fantastic stay. The gite had plenty of space for our children and the gardens and grounds had everything young children needed. The pool was amazing and a great size. Also Maxine and family gave us a lovely welcome pack, and My children loved learning tennis with James. Thank you so much!!!!

July 2018 - Maxine greeted myself and boyfriend on our arrival at the property and explained everything to us. There was a welcome basket which was wonderful after a long trip, which was a thoughtful touch. Maxine checked in with us the following day during our 3 day stay to ensure everything was to our liking, which it definitely was. The location was fantastic, but was perfectly quiet in the evenings. It is a spacious gite with a fully equipped kitchen that we had no trouble using. We loved the little terrace overlooking the garden. We would definitely recommend this place! Thanks Maxine.

Emmanuel and family 
July 2017 - The Gite was incredibly clean and Maxine was just fantastic with checking in and overall communication throughout my stay. I extended my stay several times last minute and she was more than happy to accommodate. Lovely place in a nice location.  Can’t recommend this Gite or Maxine highly enough.  Will definitely be staying here again!

August 2017 - Everything was perfect! Maxine  was a great host, responding quickly to our questions prior to our booking and arrival to Longre, The Gite  itself was excellent; modern, with everything you might need for a short or long term stay! Including maps, tourist information and full kitchen. It is also quiet and great location. Highly recomended !!

June 2017 - What a lovely Gite Super location and really well equipped - it truly felt like home! Maxine is a wonderful host and went out of her way to make sure we had a memorable stay. I will definitely be coming back!

Richie Family - July 2019 - A beautiful gite, in a lovely setting, with fantastic hosts.From before we arrived, right through our stay, nothing was too much trouble for Maxine and her lovely family. We were treated like guests in their home, while also getting the benefit of having privacy in the lovely gite. We arrived later than expected, after a long drive, and had a warm welcome from Maxine and her Husband Keith. They showed us around the gite and left us to get settled, having left us a handy welcome pack. We woke the next morning to beautiful blue skies in the lovely little village of Longre and a fresh bread delivered by Maxine’s daughter. Like most days, we spent the day playing with the kids in the pool, sometimes playing with Maxine’s daughter. There were a couple of grey/wet days during our stay, but the pool was still great fun as it has a handy cover that stays on when the weatheris wet and still allows you to swim. Our lovely hosts were on hand for whatever we needed, including advice about local restaurants, shops and days out. But they left us to enjoy our holiday without intruding, meaning we had the best of both worlds. Overall, we would highly recommend booking to stay at the gite. It’s a hidden gem in the French countryside.
