La Petite Maison
La Petite Maison sleeps up to 6 people and is a very welcoming self catering cottage within its own area of the tiny hamlet Le Bois de Pommeau on the outskirts of the medieval town of Confolens. The hamlet is reached down a maintained track leading to a large courtyard and has glorious views across the valley in all directions with the River Goire winding its way around the base of the hill the hamlet nestles atop. The cottage is lovingly restored and like its larger sister house La Belle Maison is also constructed with traditional stone walls and a 'pantile' roof which help keep the cottage cool in summer. Inside the hand plastered walls with the odd revealed stone is offset by all the lovely restored wooden beams throughout the 'gite'.
This rooms contains a double bed with bedside storage each side and a capacious wardrobe with not just hanging space for your clothes but plenty of shelving too. The window looks out over the rear of the cottage.
Twin Room 1
Two single beds, bedside storage and ample clothes storage.
The window looks out over the front of the cottage down towards the river Goire.
Double Room 2
The small double bed has its own bedside storage as well as a large wooden wardrobe to store all your clothing.
The window shares the aspect of the twin room down towards the river Goire.
Family Shower Room
Has a powerful enclosed corner shower which not only has a standard shower head with a choice of settings but 5 amazing power jets if you could do with a bit of a massage/shower! There is continuous hot water so not even a group of teenage girls can run out!
To keep your suitcases as small as possible – swimwear and sun tan lotion aren’t heavy after all –
We provide pillows, duvets, all bed linen, hand and shower towels Free of Charge. We do, however request that you provide your own swimming pool towels
There is a mid-landing on the stairs that leads out to the rear of the cottage to the garden area.
In summer, with the glorious Charente weather, (the highest number of sunshine hours after La Côte d’Azure) most of your time at the cottage will be spent outside enjoying your private garden.
Breakfast can be taken sitting at the table and chairs on the terrace under the shade of the parasol. Later you can relax on one of the sun loungers if you prefer a more horizontal position.
Whilst in the garden check out the view across the valley – you can just make out one of the roads leading to the top part of Confolens.
The local, friendly farmer (a friend of the owners) keeps some of his traditional Limousin cattle in the fields surrounding Le Bois de Pommeau.
The pool is kept warm by a solar heating panel and an insulated night cover. Please note we cannot guarantee the temperature of the pool but during the summer high season the water temperature is an average 26 centigrade. Chlorinated and regularly maintained by the owners, the pool makes for hours of fun for the family or a quiet and relaxing dip to cool off in whilst sunbathing.
The pool has removable wooden steps on the exterior for child safety and a metal ladder internally for the more graceful entry!
