Nick and Mary Felton 1 bis, Place de la Fontorse,

16500 CONFOLENS

The aroma of freshly brewed coffee in the morning leading you to our beautiful Tea room for breakfast. If you desire you can take your breakfast to a table overlooking the 12th century bridge and the medieval town of Confolens. Sit under the weeping willow beside the waters edge, contemplating the day ahead.

CONFOLENS is situated on the banks of the river Vienne in the CHARENTE region... A land of oak and granite, filled with rivers and wooded valleys. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty....A photographer's or artist's dream. The climate in this region is second only to the South of France. There are many walks and cycle rides through miles of unspoilt countryside.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is a little gem nestled conveniently at the end of a beautiful old bridge with the town a two minute walk away.
We had an upstairs room with side view of the gorgeous river. There was a large kitchen for us to use with private terrace on the first floor if we fancied doing our own thing. We had a double room with separate shower room and toilet. The guest house was very ‘French’ in keeping with a medieval town. The restaurant ‘ARThe’ was where breakfast was served. A very trendy place with a photo gallery of portraits and landscapes from Nick’s [co owner] travels. Breakfast was fresh fruit salad, croissants and preserves and fresh coffee. The restaurant was very popular at lunch times and evenings with themed curry night whilst we were there. Nick & Mary have worked tirelessly to create a an eatery which is extremely popular with the towns folk and holiday makers alike. We loved our week there! 20-27th July 2022

My friend and I have just returned from a 5 night stay at Pont Vieux Chambres and had the most fantastic time. Despite going to Confolens especially for the music festival, we basically did nothing for 5 days but to enjoy the weather from the lovely river view gardens attached to the accommodation. The garden is spacious and very private.

We took full advantage of the fact that the accommodation is also joined with the Arthe Galerie (same owners) which offers the most amazing food so between the great weather, garden, food, wine and lovely people - we had the most relaxing few days ever!

My friend and I occupied 2 spacious rooms - spotlessly clean and boasted 'the' most comfortable beds. There was the added bonus of having use of the kitchenette and large fridge. We loved the fact that breakfast was served on a long table with the other guests as it was great to be able to share our stories.

The review would not be complete without making special mention of the owners - Nick and Mary - they are genuinely lovely people who made us so welcome - they run an excellent B&B and Galerie - can't recommend it highly enough. We learned a lot from both Nick and Mary about the area, the community, the renovation work and how to make brilliant cheesecakes. Thanks to them, we had a ball and put simply, we'll definitely be back! Thank you.

Yes, you can see the river and very picturesque it is too, and you are conveniently positioned for the town centre, but these are incidental. More important is the great welcome and hospitality provided by Nick and Mary. The rooms are clean and spacious with excellent ensuite facilities, the wifi is fast and the breakfasts are good. It doesn't get much better!

We were here for three nights for a family wedding. Our daughter and my husband's sister were also here so we can vouch for three lovely rooms. There were others in accommodation elsewhere in the town and area but all agreed we had by far the nicest and it will be Pont Vieux which will be first choice for returnees.

Nick and Mary are delightful and so welcoming. The breakfasts were delightful and, as the photos show, the setting is lovely.

We stayed in this wonderful B&B for 5 nights in May. Nick and Mary were the most wonderful
hosts. We had a fabulous room overlooking the river. We never tired of the view. Breakfast
was delicious and it was great sharing it with our hosts who gave us tips on where to visit
in the surrounding area. I hope your café is up and running before long Nick as it will be
a winner!!! Would highly recommend this B & B. Thanks Nick and Mary for a memorable stay.

Hi Nick and Mary. Has taken me a while to complete this. But after searching for somewhere to stay with friends I remembered seeing point vieux during a previous visit. A speedy response to our booking and we were there for a week from the 13th April 2014. The accommodation was excellent and the hosts were incredibly accommodating, even making a cake for our friends birthday. All in all if you want a pleasant and relaxing break this is the place to stay. We are due over again in July and will pop in to say hi (tea room ready)...? Best wishes and Thank you for your advice with property searching, my house is now sold and awaiting for completion and I would like Confolens to become our second home, I will persuade my other half. Clare and Spencer

It's probably been said already by many people who have visited this small hotel/restaurant and gallery, but it seems to us that Nick and Mary have created a little bit of perfection in an area whose natural beauty only serves to enhance their business. Their relaxed style with guests manages to create a wonderful atmosphere in all areas that the guest comes into contact with, making you feel that you've found a little gem here, and will most definitely want to revisit - as long as all these good reviews don't mean they'll be booked solid for ages to come!
We managed to get the balcony room and it is so chic and roomy but, add to this the use of a kitchen they provide for guests who want to bring in food to heat/cook it gives you the opportunity to self-cater if you want ... or if you manage to resist the aromas of the variety of lovely food they provide at lunch-time. A word of caution though - if you decide to eat in in the restaurant, you might want to book ahead as they are often full.
I really hope I haven't reviewed myself out of going back there, as this would be our first stop for any future trips in the area!

Pont Vieux is a typical French Chambre d'ote, offering the most comfortable and convivial accommodation, Nick and Mary are wonderful hosts and really make you feel welcome. A delicious breakfast is served in their Salon de The', giving you the opportunity to meet fellow travellers. Our room had a private balcony and wonderful view over the river. The bed was most comfortable. Chez Eric which is opposite is close enough for you to be involved in the party evening and stagger home!!
If Mary has her chilli on the lunch menu,then you are in for a treat. An excellent stay in spite of the pouring rain. We would return!

Stayed with the effusive Nick and Mary for 2 days in early June and had a lovely time. Fast WiFi, spacious clean rooms overlooking the old bridge and town, welcoming hospitality, delicious food, peaceful atmosphere - what more could one want. I'm sure any travelling couple would enjoy a nice stay at Pont Vieux, and now that the tea rooms have opened downstairs theres even more to sample!
