Description for Gite

This stylish and comfortable property can accommodate up to 6 people in its 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. WIFI is available throughout the house and in each bedroom.

Situated on a quiet side lane with views of the river and its bridges, this house is centrally located in the historic area of Confolens. The town's charming bars and restaurants are just a short walk away, allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in the friendly ambiance without the need for taxis. (see map of Confolens below)

Each bedroom and living room window features a garde corps, a traditional and attractive French balcony guard that provides safety for guests.

We have created a stylish French holiday rental that offers everything you need for self-catering. You can enjoy dining and relaxing at home, using the fresh and organic produce sold by local gardeners at the town's market days or within the region. Combine this with the famous French bread and wine, which can be purchased for as little as two Euros, and you have the perfect French evening.

Just 200 meters from the house, there is a beautiful public park and picnic area by the river Vienne. This area, located between a picturesque weir with a water mill and the town's road bridge, features a sandy beach zone during the summer season. Guests can bring a picnic basket and enjoy a meal in the fresh air at one of the picnic benches or on a blanket. Additionally, boat hire is available from a professional kayak and boat hire company located here during the high season.

A short walk up the river leads to Confolens' own open-air swimming pool, which offers water flumes and countryside views. This is a fantastic way to enjoy the glorious summer in the Charente, a region known for its sunshine hours and temperatures second only to the Cote d'Azur. Soak up the sun, take a dip, and don't forget the sun cream!

Located in the heart of the ancient town of Confolens, which is considered one of the most attractive old towns in France, we are biased but believe you will fall in love with it too. The town gets its name from the word "confluence," as it has been a central trade route since Roman times. The Vieux Pont, an 8th-century Roman bridge spanning the wide and majestic river Vienne, is a historic landmark of the town. The bridge's coat of arms displays three defensive towers that were once situated along its length.

Confolens is known for its rich culture and music scene, with numerous festivals taking place throughout the year. The town's renowned week-long international folk music festival in August is a highlight.

With plenty of entertainment options for the family, Confolens offers a self-contained and enjoyable holiday experience. Please refer to our guide of entertainment options for the family in and around the town on the Ville de Confolens tab (above left).

Confolens is approximately a 40-minute drive from Limoge airport, which is served by Ryanair with flights from several UK airports. The small and efficient airport provides a hassle-free start to your holiday. Once on the roads, despite driving on the opposite side from the UK, you can relax and enjoy the less crowded and peaceful surroundings. Come, explore, and relax.

The Poitou Charente region offers miles of glorious countryside, dotted with beautiful villages, towns, and cities such as Poitiers, home to the second most popular theme park in France after Euro Disney. It is also the historic home of the Queen of England from where she ruled France. There is plenty to do and explore in the surrounding areas while using Confolens as a beautiful base for your holiday.

C'est le bonheur!
