La Grange Terrou is the name of this small domain comprising three very original gites each one with a character of its own. The property is self contained in its own extensive woodland, fields and gardens and situated just outside the small village of Saint Germain de Confolens, a village oozing with old world charm . The village boasts a medieval castle where there are frequent events in the summer months. the whole area is surrounded by walks, cycle tracks and country lanes and is tucked away in the heart of the beautiful Charente countryside in SWest France.

La Maison du Maitre is the main house and has 5 bedrooms which can sleep up to 11 people. The house is set facing onto its own private courtyard which forms the main entrance. You enter via the large kitchen / dining room with fully fitted units, range cooker and granite work tops, dishwasher, fridge freezer and separate drinks fridge - fully equipped is an understatement! The large kitchen table comfortably seats 8 or 10 at a push but there is a table seating 12 on the terrace or a dining room for 16, at one end of the kitchen is a comfy sofa where you can sit and watch friends cooking or alternatively it is a quiet place to sit while others watch TV in the lounge. The beautiful lounge is a centre piece of the property with three super comfy sofas and easy chairs. To seat 11. There is a large screen HD TV, DVD player and music centre with a wide variety of DVDs and CDs provided. Two sets of beaufiful French doors lead to the magnificent dining room with its wooden floor and beamed ceiling which can seat up to 16 people for more formal dining. Another two sets of French doors lead to a second dining terrace with another large table and chairs. The terrace wraps itself around two sides of the house and overlooks the beautiful gardens and parkland from the kitchen side and the pool to the dining room side. Aliso downstairs is a cloakroom with loo and a laundry room with washing machine.

Upstairs there are 5 spacious bedrooms; two with king size beds and ensuites, one double, one twin and one with bunk beds and a single bed, a favourite for children. There is a further family bathroom with a very large bath and shower attachment .

A play area for children has swings and space for boys to play football. Guests are also welcome to roam around our fields and woodland. Children seem to love our playful dogs Sam, Blue and Heidi who will spend hours fetching sticks. Children also love to pet and feed our three lovely horses, Rio, Pella and Otto.

The Poitou-Charentes region

The Charente is one of the most beautiful regions of France with rolling countryside, wooded valleys, picturesque villages.

We are located between three major cities which are each worth a visit , Angouleme, famous for being built on 7 hills just like Rome, Limoges is known for its porcelain and Poitiers. Slightly further afield is Cognac, well worth a visiting for a tour of the Cognac factories.

The Charente has its own micro climate and is said to be the second sunniest region of France after the south coast.


We are situated just outside the pretty village of Saint Germain de Confolens with its medieval castle. Insummer months falconery display are held weekly on the ramparts. The village hosts a boutique where local artisans display their creations as well as a wine cellar where you can try and buy local wines.

Our main town is Confiolens, a 4km drive away where there are major shops, banks and restaurants.

Things to do i the area include visiting the martyred village at Oradour sur Glane, the roman remains at Cassiomagnus, the Monkey sanctuary at Rougmac , the Gallois village at Esse. For those preferring more active pursuits take a trip on the Velo Rail or canoe on the river Vienne. There are several activity parks not far away or you may just prefer to go walking on the many pathways that traverse the local countryside.
