Location description from owner

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.

Confolens

We are situated just outside the pretty village of Saint Germain de Confolens with its medieval castle. In summer 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 Confolens, a 4km drive away where there are major shops, banks and restaurants. Things to do in 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.
