This house is a new addition to the estate, having been built some 150
years later in 1760. Over the past few decades it has been home to
several generations of Rouges Queues (Black Redstarts), who have built
their nests and raised their young.

Reclaimed materials and traditional building methods were used to
repair and reinstate many features. We have also selected traditional
French furniture, especially in the bedrooms and the lounge and dining
areas. Whilst the farmhouse was restored to reflect the period in
which it was built it also has the added comfort of today's luxuries.
Inside you will find thick stone walls, mammoth oak beams and
impressive fireplaces.

Downstairs there is a fully equipped kitchen with Smeg dishwasher,
microwave, gas cooker and fridge. There are plenty of kitchen
utensils and cookware, together with cutlery, crockery and glassware.
The living room has a massive Charentais fireplace and a Louis XV
style three piece suite - a perfect area to relax in the cool on those
hot summer days or to toast near the log burner during the winter
evenings. The dining room has a huge oak dining table, with six

Upstairs there are three well-sized bedrooms - one double, one twin
and one single. All bedrooms have traditional French bedroom
furniture, with chevets and bedside lamps for that late night reading.
The two front bedrooms have spectacular views of the River Vienne.
The bathroom has a mosaic-tiled shower, washhand basin and WC. There
is a 200 litre hot water supply so there is always lashings of hot
water available.

There is a communal laundry area in an adjoining building with washing
machine, iron and ironing board.



Situated in a quiet hamlet surrounded by unspoilt countryside, most
people agree that the farmhouses are amongst the best of the rental
properties available and that they have one of the most stunning
locations in the Charente.

These farmhouses are set in one acre of land with large 10 x 5 m solar
heated swimming pool. Each house has its own exclusive outside dining
area - table, chairs and essential barbeque - under its own covered
pergola. The houses have been restored to reflect the period in which
they were built, but with the added luxury of today's home comforts
and are far removed from the idea of the typical French gite of



The area around Confolens contains many typical French villages with
medieval quarters, local markets, chateaux, old churches and lakes
with beaches - perfect for swimming or just for relaxing.

Just a scratch on the map but Manot is situated between Confolens and
Roumazières, a route indicated as one of outstanding beauty. A
typical sleepy French village with the old bridge crossing the River
Vienne, the beautiful church dominates the skyline on your approach.

Manot station may not have seen a train for some years, but many
people pass through it or board from it using the velo-rail. The best
way to describe the velo-rail is to liken it to pedaloes that run on
rail tracks - a great day out for the whole family.

Manot also boasts a very small beach by the ruins of the old mill.
Here, the beds of the local river contain minute deposits of gold and
garnet for which you can prospect whilst paddling in the cool clear
water. For the more ambitious it is one of the starting points for
the canoe school, where you can paddle up river to Confolens.

The village shop is a short stroll away from the farmhouses and is
great for the odds and ends you may need. There is also a boulangerie
where you can get your freshly baked bread and croissants each morning.

Confolens, with its bars and restaurants, stands at the confluence of
the rivers Vienne and Goire, and is a delightful medieval town with a
castle keep and natural spring. Every year the whole world meets in
its streets to celebrate folklore and traditional music from all over
the globe. Canoes and pedaloes are available to explore the river.
