“The best French holiday we've ever had.”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for 10 days and really wanted a relaxing holiday with enough for three active children to enjoy.

The house is absolutely beautiful. Big bedrooms and large windows with either views of the river or over the pool. We stayed during the Confolens folk festival and both the atmosphere and entertainment were brilliant with musicians from over 18 countries coming to the town.

The pool was the right size for all 5 of us to play in (though it could have fitted more) and, yes the wi-fi worked well which you do need for a modern family.The house also had shutters that gave shade from the sun - it was 34 degrees most days although we understand you can never plan for the weather.

The owner lives next door in a discrete hidden annexe and we found Madame Caro to be very helpful and information. She helped us navigate our way through the festival and was very generous.

Confolens came alive during the Festival but even afterwards it has great shops (Butcher/Baker/Grocer) The Supermarket is on the edge of town which we walked to. (20 mins)

The town has a stunning Medieval quarter and bridge and there's a lot to see and do.

We had an absolutely fantastic time staying in a real French home with beautiful rooms and furniture in every room. If I could I'd buy this house.

You might feel its a long drive down from a Northern port but with a combination of Peage Motorways its probably only 5 1/2 hours and well worth it especially if like us you get amazing weather. If you've got a dog I'd also recommend the Dog friendly Portsmouth/Le Harve crossing where Dogs can stay in cabins.

“Well-equipped house with a nice little pool, in a nice town.”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a very enjoyable stay in the house. There is parking area directly across from the house which is very convenient. It’s not too much to look at from the outside, but it’s full of character from the inside. It’s over 3 levels – entry hall and garage on the ground floor, living area and garden on 1st floor, bedrooms on the top floor. There is a lot going on in the house – and the kids enjoyed exploring it! It is very well equipped – from kitchen & laundry equipment, piano, office (with printer!) and loads of board games & books & DVD’s to keep the kids entertained. The smart TV is wonderful and the wifi is ideal. Most of the time was spend in the pool area. There were plenty of seats & loungers and there were loads of inflatables. There was no shortage of towels – a good thing as the kids were in and out of the pool all day, every day. With 3 WC’s, there is was never a queue for the bathroom. Confolens is a nice old town – with a selection of boulangeries and other shops a few minutes walk away. There are a few large supermarkets within 10 min drive (Lidl/Intermarche/Leader Price). There are not too many activities in the immediate surroundings for the young kids, but there are a few nice places in the vicinity – a highlight was the man-made lake (with lifegaurds and changing facilities) at Roumazieres. (We got lost trying to find it, but here are the Google co-ords if you’re interested: 45.8738, 0.5859). All-in-all, a nice place to stay, very reasonably priced, and Karolina is very helpful.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just returned from a week at Caro's, a large and charming house with everything you could need - a real home from home. Typically French in style with small garden/pool area and outdoor BBQ. The house is clean and is well furnished and very well equipped. Carolina, the owner is friendly and lives in a self-contained section at the end of the house so is available if you need help or advice but does not impose on guests. A very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
