Blue Twin Room

The blue twin room overlooks the front of the house, with lovely views over the river and Confolens.  The two beds measure 120 cm each, which is the old french double bed measurement.  A bit of a squeeze if you were big...  We use these beds as roomy single beds, but they would comfortably fit two children or a romantique couple!

In the living room, there are two cream leather sofas, seating 5 people, plus a bed setee for one person.  A real marble fireplace and large glass windows overlooking the Vienne and Confolens finnish off this pretty room.

CHAMBRE D'HOTE/BED AND BREAKFAST

All of our bedrooms have been tastefully decorated and luxuriously furnished with antique Charentaise furniture, giving character and individuality to each room.

Bedrooms are located on the first floor, accessed by the Grande Staircase. We have kept the original 17th century wood flooring throughout, which is waxed to a high shine. Some rooms benefit from the added comfort of handmade woollen rugs. We ask guests to bring and wear slippers to wear in your rooms to protect both your feet and the wooden floors. Chandelier lighting in the rooms gives that extra feeling of luxury.

Our Blue Single Bedroom looks over our rear garden and terrace.

Our Lemon Double Bedroom has dual facing windows. The first window looks south over our back terrace, the lawn and Confolens. The front window looks over what appears to be a well laid out garden and the river vienne. (It is in fact the municipal camping de confolens.)


Both bedrooms share a large communal bathroom and can be taken individually or as our "Lemon Family Suite".

Our Lime Family Suite consists of two adjoining rooms. The parents room boasts an ornate original antique double bed. The childrens room has two antique french double beds, which we use as generous single beds. Pretty chandeliers light up the pastel shaded walls. The en-suite multi-jet showered bathroom facilities lead off the parents bedroom.

A substantial breakfast is included in your room price.

Tea and coffee facilities are available for guest use throughout the day and evening.

We offer a selection of Table D'hote evening menus for our guests, ranging from simple light meals to gastronomic taste-bud popping extravaganzas. It's just a matter of how big your appetite is and how much you wish to spend.

 


MINI ANIMAL FARM

We have four different breeds of rabbit, which we raise to champion standards.  Our champion Geant Papillion Francaise weighs in at about 7.5 kilo!

Our daughter, Rebekah, has caught the rabbit bug, we have included a photo of her winning her first cup at a recent exposition.

We have two lady goats and babies, depending on the time of year ... Come and watch at milking time, stroke our goats or give a bottle to the babies.  If you are feeling really brave, why not try tasting some of our fresh delicious milk?

We have some friends that breed a rare breed dog called "Hovawarts" and have asked us if we can put in a link to their site.  If you like rare or unusual breed doges - here's one for you:  http://chana.la.hovawart.free.fr/accueil_021.htm
