Fantastic holiday home, spacious , characterful and close to all amenities
We were x2 families of 3 sharing le petite maison , we found the peaceful large space ideal for us and our teenagers, great to have outdoor games to keep us all entertained aswell and a fab pool to laze around. All the bedrooms were large so no arguments there and having Confolens on our doorstep was a great added bonus .. we definitely hope to be back soon,
Utterly charming house and owners
We can wholly recommend staying here, where do I start... the house and grounds are beautiful, the location is tranquility itself and the facilities were perfect.
We stayed as a group of 8 in Le Petit Maison and it never felt too small, plenty of room in the pool too!
Not too far from the pretty medieval town of Confolens and a good couple of supermarkets nearby too.
John and Philippa were great onsite hosts and very helpful for local knowledge.
We left very relaxed and hope to come back again next year.
Thanks for a wonderful break, James, Ginnette, Amelia, Lucy, John, Yasmin, Hannah and Adam
Many thanks for your comments - it would be a pleasure to host you again!
Fantastic location and property, everything you could want for a fantastic French holiday.
Beautiful main house, the holiday rentals are perfect for family’s. The gardens are beautiful and combined with the swimming pools makes it a great location to laze about all day with or without children.
Lovely fishing lake for those wishing to spend a few hours sat relaxing waiting for a fish to bite.
Having visited France on many occasions staying in holiday rentals this house is excellent and John and Phillipa are lovely owners.
My only small recommendation would be to make some fans available. It was an exceptionally hot summer and sleeping some nights was difficult.
Other than that loved everything about it, will come again and recommend to others.
Super domaine, des extérieurs magnifiques, une maison très fonctionnelle et adaptée aux grandes familles. Tout l'équipement nécessaire était présent autant pour les adultes, que pour les enfants ou pour les bébés. Sur le domaine, nous avons pu jouer au tennis, au badminton, au ping-pong, à la balançoire et même pêcher dans le magnifique lac de la propriété. Les propriétaires étaient très charmants et on fait en sorte de nous rendre ce séjour des plus agréables possible en mettant à notre disposition des jeux de société, des DVD, et des brochures sur les activités de la région. Concernant les alentours, nous avons pu visiter Oradour sur glane, des fermes pour le bonheur des enfants, le Futuroscope qui reste à proximité de la location. Nous avons également pu découvrir le paddle à Confolens, qui est une ville petite mais avec beaucoup de charme.
En bref, de très bonnes vacances. Merci beaucoup.
Merci Lisa pour vos gentils commentaires. Nous espérons que vous reviendrez.
Domaine de Villechaise is in the hamlet named after it - Villechaise - on the D59 just 3 km south of Confolens in the Charente region. It is convenient for the shops and restaurants of Confolens and within easy reach of the famous cities and airports of Poitiers, Limoges and Angouleme.
The Charente is an unspoilt and uncrowded region, criss-crossed by the wide clear waters of the Charente and Vienne rivers. There are rolling hills with pastures dotted with woodland - ideal terrain for rambling, following history-studded paths and deserted river banks. The wildlife is abundant - nightingales sing with nightjars in the evenings, red squirrels run across lawns and buzzards fly overhead.
There are plenty of sites to see and activities in the area - for both adults and children alike - including adventure parks, zoos, white water canoeing, museums and the famous Confolens music festival in August. There are also a number of courses in the area for the avid golfer.
Other Activities: Badminton, tennis, swimming pools, table tennis, croquet, boules, carp fishing
Golf: The two nearest golf courses are at St Junien (20 min drive) and Mortemart (40 min drive). There are many more courses a little further away.
