“Lovely property with a equally fabulous host in Karolina”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in September 2014

Confolens is a quaint pretty village which has good transportation links. The house is lovely with swimming pool too cool off during the summer months. The host Karolina is helpful in giving advice to visitors willing to explore the locality and surrounding areas. There are castles and other places of interest in the immediate vicinity - cannot wait to return

“Charming house in a lovely town”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Caro's is an old house full of character. There is plenty of space and it is nicely decorated and equipped. The kitchen is quite small but adequate. The terrace with pool is lovely with lots of chairs and sun loungers. The garden is small but that was not a problem for us with older children. We had 2 small dogs with us and it was sufficient for them to pootle around.
Karolina, the owner, lives in an apartment joined to the house screened off by hedge. She was very helpful and had lots of information about local sights etc. The pool was adequate and the children really liked it. Unfortunately, Karolina had broken her ankle 3 weeks before our stay and had not been able to maintain the pool to her usual standard.
Confolens is a great town with some beautiful, ancient buildings. It has a range of shops a 5 minutes walk away and a large Intermarche 5 minutes drive from the house. It is a two minute walk to the main square.
There are some lovely places to visit such as St Germain De Confolens with its ruined castle 5 minutes drive away. Oradour Sur Glane is a 25 minute drive away and a stark reminder of what the French suffered in the war. There is a great little beach/ swimming lake at Roumazieres- Loubert. The countryside is beautiful and the towns and villages varied. This feels like 'real' France rather than a tourist destination.

“Brilliant holiday gite in a stunning little town”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have enjoyed a lovely week at Caro's in Confolens. On arrival we were welcomed by Karolina who was always at hand if you needed information or directions on local attractions etc.
We were a family of 5, including 3 children ages 8, 9 and 15, so ample space with the four bedrooms. The house itself is clean and has a rustic french feel to it. The free Wifi was very well received- especially by the children! Th other facilities are excellent, including washing machine, tumble dryer and a dishwasher amongst others.
We had a mix of weather, some days were lovely so we tried the pool but it was still on the cool side- the kids still enjoyed using it though!
We enjoyed going to Puy Du Fou (4hr round trip), and the WW2 historical site of Oradour Sur Glane and the local Velo-rail.
The town of Confolens is very pretty with beautiful bridges across the river, we also enjoyed seeing the river using the local pedalos. A really lovely place to visit but you may have to travel further afield to find attractions for younger children.

“Amazing!”

Very pleasant holidays.
We stayed at Caro's for a week in May 2013. The house is amazing, in a beautiful location. The owner, Karolina was always on hand for help and advice. The house itself is well equipped, spacious and very homy. It's very clean, comfortable and has everything required for a self catering holiday. We loved having the heated pool, BBQ and the pool table. When we ended up having to work on our holiday, we had wifi access, a scanner, a printer and a comfortable desk.
There is so much to do and see in the area. The golf club is only 20 min by car, there are also a fantastic open large zoo, lakes and rivers, medieval castles to visit, very spectacular walking with your furry friend, fishing and much much more. Local pubs are only a few min walking distance away from the house and serve some good food. We would've been happy to stay another week. This holiday home can be really perfect for families with children, couples or like in our case, hen and stag breaks.

Bonjour Bénédicte,
Merci pour votre commentaire. Je tiens simplement à clarifier qu'il faut m'annoncer par avance que vous venez avec des chiens ainsi que leur nombre. Il va de soi que les animaux peuvent se promener dans le jardin mais que leur maîtres doivent les surveiller et ramasser leur excréments.
