Set in the rolling countryside of the Charente / Dordogne borders, the Longeveau estate offers guests a superb array of family friendly facilities within our domain and our wider beautiful region. For many a Longeveau holiday is the opportunity to arrive and unwind in our unspoilt corner of France while the entire family can make the most of what we have to offer!

With our 9 hole golf-course (golf professional and competitions), eventing spaces, three tennis courts (with tennis coaching), heated swimming pools, bar, catering options, children's activities, table tennis & sports barns, boules, board games, two play parks, welcome hampers, pre-arrival shopping services, extensive baby & toddler kits, as well as being on hand to arrange in-cottage beauty treatments, bike hire, personal training, fitness and yoga classes...there really is something for everyone!

Swimming pools

Your safety and comfort are our top priority at Longeveau. All of our swimming pools are fenced and enclosed with European-standard safety gates to ensure your peace of mind with little ones during your stay! Most of our pools are heated and open between April - October.  Please see property details for further details.

Our children's play pool is an ideal place to entertain babies and toddlers while you dip your toes and and enjoy the summer sun.

Play areas

In addition to your private cottage garden and our safe grounds we have two, enclosed, well-equipped play areas. There are toys, swings, slides, sandpits and frames suitable for babies and older children with benches and loungers for a welcome rest space or picnic with mum and dad!  There is also a large play chest in our bar which includes some very popular fancy dress options.


We work with Archery Dordogne who are able to deliver an onsite service to all of our guests throughout the season. They have over 15 years experience of teaching archery skills to family groups, corporate events and wedding parties. Private, individual or group bookings can also be arranged.

Walk - run - cycle

Walking, running or cycling around our beautiful region is a real privilege. The countryside of the Charente / Dordogne borders is particularly undulating and lush with neat rolling hills making way to forested valleys and babbling brooks. There are many designated rambling and off road bike routes to avail of, including a section of the Camino de Santiago!

There are some designated walks, including the Aubeterre to Poltrot trail, taking in a mix of countryside lanes, fields and woodland.   Likewise, if you prefer to pick up the pace, there are numerous routes and tracks for you to explore. The relatively quiet country lanes are a pleasure to run, with numerous tracks and trails to take you off-road.

A local VTT / mountain biking route passes down the lane at Longeveau. The 26km route is sign posted, helping you to stay on track and get the best out of our local countryside! Again, there are numerous other routes for you to explore.


Access to our three tennis courts as well as all equipment necessary is free for all staying guests.  We can also arrange tennis coaching for you.  Please contact us for more information!

Longeveau Tennis courts

Table tennis & Games Barns

Our table tennis space offers a welcome reprieve from the summer sun in our our Charentaise, stone barn, to the rear of our Manoir. We have witnessed some serious multi-generational competitions over the years as week long holiday championships are battled out!

Our larger sports barn offers space for kids to run around and let off steam as well as basketball nets to practice those shots!


We have a designated space for serious boules players. However, there are plenty of areas and gardens where guests can play this game with friends and family.

Monday night Football

Our weekly summer BBQ* creates the back drop for a wonderful chilled dinning experience for all the family, topped off with a kick around the tennis courts! Organised by children and taken very seriously by some parents 😉 this game is for everyone who fancies their chances but the standards are getting very high as seen with even our very young guests! *Operates from 5 July - 23 August 2024.

The Terrace Bar

Our fully licensed bar is the heart of Longeveau and serves a selection of delicious hot & cold drinks as well as ice-creams & some light snacks.  Our friendly team are on hand to help with anything including local information, to make bookings for a wine-tasting or sign you up for a BBQ or welcome meal.

We cater for younger family members, with lunch-box style 'Kiddie Boxes' for little ones and organic baby food for our tiniest guests.  A selection of breads and viennoiseries (breakfast pastries) are also available to order for collection every morning.

Our chef prepares a delicious 3 course welcome meal every Friday and Saturday evening.  Enjoy a choice of freshly prepared, local dishes with seating on our beautiful terrace as the sun-sets over the valley. Let the children play as you enjoy one of our local bottles of wine, long into the summer evenings and start your holiday in style!

Spend an evening wine-tasting (weekly in the summer holidays or by reservation at other times) with a local vignoble where you get the chance to test your palate and see which of the delicious local wines you prefer.  Why not take some home with you for a delicious souvenir!

Thursday night is pizza night - eat in, on our terrace with friends and a drink, or take-out to enjoy in the comfort of your holiday home or garden!

Our weekly BBQ nights, welcome meals and pizza nights operate between 5 July - 23 August 2024 and are available to all staying guests.  At other times we can offer alternative arrangements including in-gite meals & shopping services.
