About Emma

Our love affair with France started in 2008 when we decided to holiday somewhere different, somewhere where we had not been before. We love the scenery of the UK with the open fields and rolling hills and spend hours walking our trusted companion Timmy, our springer spaniel. We wanted to holiday somewhere that could offer us the relaxation we wanted away from our busy jobs, coupled with good golf courses, friendly people, great food and wine and of course the sun. France had it all, and as we started exploring different regions in France we kept on coming back to the Charente. For us the area had it all, with its pretty villages dotted along the river banks to its numerous Chateau’s just waiting to be explored. The Lacs de Charente to spend the day at swimming, and playing on the water to the peace and tranquillity of just wandering through the countryside, we decided to buy a little piece of France

Emma purchased this house in 2015

Why Emma chose Lessac

The timber beams shows the character of the house, the log burners keep you nice and cosy in the winter and the south facing garden is perfect for those lazy days sunbathing and eating Alfresco. The open plan downstairs makes the house very sociable and and enjoyable place to be.

A really lovely cottage in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying in La Baroque. The house is lovely and has real character - if anything it is even more spacious and comfortable than we expected from the photos - and is well-equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The garden was big enough for our boys to run around while still being an oasis of calm and providing a great outdoor dining space. The area around Confolens is picturesque and unspoilt with plenty of options for spending lazy summer days. This was one of our best trips and I would recommend La Baroque to anyone.

The region is well known for its micro climate, meaning that in Summer it can be hotter and sunnier than the South of France.

With many Festivals throughout the Region you are never too far away from the action. In Confolens there is a large Music Festival held every year in August, where musicians from all over the world come and perform. The region is filled with rolling hills perfect for walking or cycling and visiting the beautiful towns and villages that are dotted around the area. With the river Vienne less than a minutes walk from the property, fishing is also on your doorstep. Within the area you will find the Leisure lakes of the Haute Charente. Perfect for Swimming, canoeing, fishing or sailing. You will also find horse-riding, and canoeing centres which are a great way to explore the area. Bike hire is available in the local village of Lessac less than 1.5k away where you will also find a great bar and restaurant. Confolens itself has may bars and restaurants selling a selection on local drinks and cuisine. With 2 big supermarkets and a weekly market less than 4k away from the property you will be spoilt for choice. One of the local landmarks (which can be seen from the twin bedroom) is the Castle at St Germain de Confolens. In the summer months they have many interesting things going on such as Falconry displays, and art exhibitions within the grounds. Just the view from the top is breath taking alone. The area is also famous for its love of motor racing with the Circuit du Val du Vienne only being 15K away, track days, and weekend events happen almost all year round. From French Superbikes to Porches, Renault Clio's to Caterham's there is something for everyone. The nearest Airport is Limoges and train stations can also be found at Limoges or Angouleme. A car is recommended to explore and enjoy what this wonderful part of France has to offer.
