6 For a traditional and welcoming country home, this longère in the Loire Valley fits the bill. The little fermette is currently used as a B&B and gîte business. The main house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, while the adjoining guest accommodation is a self-contained, double-bedroom gîte. The attached building has a studio, a workshop and storage space. Outside on the terrace is a large pool and covered spa, and there are also nearly four hectares of land which include three paddocks and a mature garden. The property is just a short drive from basic amenities.
