The Longere

The Longere is a traditional Breton long barn dating from the 16th Century, which has been renovated to a very high standard to provide spacious and comfortable accommodation for short or long stays. The largest of the two properties currently available, it sleeps 6 people and is available to rent from March to October, with other periods possible. Cots are also available. Each of the 3 bedrooms in the Longere are spacious enough to accommodate a cot.

Additional Information

Bed Linen, dressing gowns, hairdryers, towels, flannels, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner & soap are provided.

All bed linen is provided and is either Egyptian cotton or poly-cotton mix. Your beds will be made up for you on your arrival. We have a selection of pillows and duvets available, including hypo-allergenic or natural fills. Please state your preference (if any) at the time of booking.

A totally separate laundry room is available for the use of guests, with two washing machines and two tumble dryers. We supply eco-friendly washing liquids and fabric softeners. If the weather permits we would be very grateful if you would dry clothes outside.

Le Clezio is a rural property and whilst we have mains water supply (the tap water is perfectly safe to drink!) we do not have mains drainage. We also provide guests with suitable cleaning products, which will not harm the environment.

Mobile phone reception is generally good around the property. WiFi is available in both properties but signal strength and speed can’t be guaranteed. This is because most of the walls are around a meter thick. We will do our very best to ensure you have internet access when you need it.

Please note that smoking is not allowed inside any of our properties. You are welcome to smoke outside in the gardens but please ensure that you do not smoke near other non-smoking guests. Please ensure that you dispose of your cigarettes safely.

Pets are permitted in the downstairs living areas in the properties. Please ensure that you do not allow any pets in any of the bedrooms or bathrooms. Please make sure that you clean up after your pets, we can supply bags if you forget yours!
