About The Owner

We bought the house in 2007 as our family home and have spent several years restoring many of the original features.

Our family have now grown up and left home so we want to give other people the opportunity to stay in our beautiful home and enjoy a relaxing holiday in the quiet French countryside.

We live in a small dwelling on the property, so we’re on hand should you need assistance during your stay and welcome families (although young children will need constant supervision in the garden and pool area).

We have two small family dogs so prior arrangement would be needed if you wanted to bring along any pets.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Sainte-Souline

La Longere a Broue has been our family home for the last ten years. Now our children have left it has given us the opportunity to allow others to enjoy family holidays in this lovely place.

We live in the adjoining property with our two small dogs.

I enjoy upholstery and soft furnishing along with many other crafts.

What makes this house unique

The property benefits from large reception rooms that remain cool in the long hot summers. The third reception room is a great space for the children with books, games and dvd’s. The kitchen is equipped with granite worktops, high quality appliances and plenty of room for cooking with a large dining table for all our guests. French doors lead to the patio for barbeques and outdoor dining. English TV is available in the lounge, and there is wifi throughout the house.

Our previous guests have enjoyed 3 family holidays with plenty of space for dining and relaxing. The property is great for families holidaying together, family reunions or when the Grandparents want to join you. Some of the facilities are on the ground floor (see floor plan in photos) so its ideal for the older members of the family who find stairs a challenge. There is also a wet room style shower on the ground floor.

Amazing holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at La Longere a Broue as a group of 12 (with ages ranging from 3 to 45). The accommodation was perfect for us with plenty of room inside and out; beautifully decorated and with everything you need to cater for a large group. The pool area was lovely and the kids spent most of the week splashing around. The location was very peaceful and surrounded by beautiful fields of sunflowers. Alex and Anita were great hosts - very friendly and accommodating. There was a useful basket provided with leaflets and information on places to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and would have loved to stay longer. Would totally recommend this property.

Probably the nicest house we've stayed in abroad

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at La longère a Broue. The house itself is superb - plenty of old world charm but mixed with modern decor in a tasteful way. Beautiful beds, linen, all mod cons. The pool was great - kids and adults loved it! Cleaned every day morning and evening. Alex & Anita were on hand for any queries but never intrusive. The location is stunning and if you like sunflowers you are in for a treat - in full bloom in July! Tranquil and relaxing, out party of 12 ( 4 adults and 8 children) stayed comfortably and happily! Highly recommend .

The only words we can use to describe this property is amazing! It was everything described and much more, we knew from the pictures that it was going to be nice but they truly don't do the property justice it was stunning. It was spotlessly clean and had everything you could possible need to make your stay memorable. Alex and Anita could not have been more helpful, it was my daughters birthday so they advised us on a lovely place to eat and even helped to book the table. The area is rural but has the most beautiful countryside around you we had 4 children with us and they were never bored. The swimming pool was a great hit. We did the Hennessey distillery which was really interesting, we also canoed and did a vela rail, all of these where about 45 minutes from the property and markets where absolutely fantastic. Would I visit again....most definitely and would recommend this property to anyone.

Beautiful family home in rural location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this property justice. There is so much space and every convenience is provided. The pool was enjoyed by all of our party as was the outdoor dining and seating area.The pool is also a good size and depth. All of the bedrooms were furnished to a high standard as were the bathrooms. The younger members of our party also enjoyed the wi-fi that is available. Anita and Alex (the owners) live in an adjoining property and were very friendly and helpful.

A beautiful home that is well presented and maintained, we would definitely recommend this property.

Fantastic place to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a wonderful property La Longère is!

We were a party of 9 (4 adults and 5 kids ranging from 5 - 19 years old), and chose La Longère almost at random - you know how it is, you get a short list with 4 or 5 properties which seem to meet your needs and stick a pin in the list. And how lucky we were. The house is just beautiful, with plenty of space for all of us and equipped with absolutely everything we could need.

The property is in excellent condition having been recently refurbished, with top quality appliances in the kitchen making it very easy to cater for our party. The "games room" with a great selection of books, games, Playstation 2, and a piano was a nice surprise but simply underlined how Alex and Anita have made a "home away from home" for their guests. The heated pool was wonderful and a good size - plenty big enough to drift around reading a book on one's Lilo as the little ones splash about and play games.

The town of Brossac is approximately 10 mins drive away and has a small Spar and a pharmacy whilst Barbezieux is around 20 mins away with Intermarce, E.Leclarc and Lidl supermarkets.

Alex and Anita were very welcoming and helpful, even arranging a doctor's appointment for one of our party who came down with tonsilitis. We were initially concerned that having them on site may prove slightly intrusive, but that certainly wasn't the case. They maintained the perfect balance between being on hand and supportive, and allowing us to enjoy our holiday undisturbed.

Overall, this was a fantasic location for a quiet, relaxing break. Highly recommended!

We’re situated on the edge of the hamlet of Broue, with open farmland and countryside all around. There’s a small farm in the hamlet with chickens, geese, horses and cattle.

Broue is a hamlet located between the market towns of Barbezieux and Chalais – a 15-minute drive in opposite directions. The village of Aubeterre and towns of Riberac and Brantome are within easy reach. Closer to home is the village of Brossac, with bank, post office, shop and bakery. Here you will find the Etang Vallier lake and leisure complex with café, bars and restaurant.

Love cycling? you will find many cycle routes in the beautiful countryside for all ages and abilities.
