Vingt Grand Rue
Ranked #10 of 14 Confolens B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We found this property while searching for a B&B in Confolens. Vingt Grand Rue is not in fact in the town of Confolens, but rather in a village about half an hour away. There's probably not a lot to recommend the village itself, but with this B&B it could be a good base for exploring the surrounding area. There are several different (and large) rooms with various bed arrangements (including a family room). The building itself is the old Gendarmerie (local police station) and it has been nicely restored and renovated.

The hosts are Anne and Sian, who made us feel very welcome and who certainly succeed in keeping the place looking spotless. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and a chat. We had chosen to have dinner at the B&B, which was a good decision both because there are no other options in the village itself, but more because we had a charming meal together with the hosts and another couple staying there. For 18 euros each we had a four-course meal with wine and great conversation - it was more like having a meal with friends than in a hotel or B&B.

The room was spotlessly clean (something we really appreciated, and much better than some places we've stayed at), but there were a few little things here and there which could have improved the overall experience, and I suspect there are still some teething problems with the organisation. Our bathroom had no soap (or any other toiletries) whatsoever for example. The super-friendly dog might be a bit too friendly for some guests. There was a kettle and cups in the room (a nice touch), but no milk and just a couple of teabags. These aren't complaints, but rather suggestions to further improve the experience.

Breakfast was a generous continental style, with a hot breakfast offered as an option.

Vingt Grand Rue is a delightful B&B situated in the pleasant village of Champagne Moutons, In the Poitou Charentes area of France.Our bedroom was exceptionally well appointed with full en suite and coffee/tea facilities available(unusual for France)The lounge is lovely and the gardens and patio area are all open to guests.It is run by two charming English ladies who go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.Apart from breakfast,dinner is available at a moderate charge.It is within reasonable distance of Limoges,Angouleme,Poitiers and the coast.
Stayed for one night,but after touring around returned for a further three nights.
Would reccomend a visit.
We would certainly return

Really enjoyed our stay here ,felt welcome and at home from the moment we stepped through the door.The b&b is really beautiful , grand rooms kept spotlessly clean by Sian and Anne . Set in a small town which is surrounded by many more great little villages you can explore. We went for day trips to the nearby lakes and also to la rochelle which were great , then on our return to the b&b Sian & Anne would have prepared a lovely meal. Would definetly recommend this b&b and will be returning .

Came across this B&B whilst researching online to find a place as a stopover on our way further South. The hosts Anne & Sian made us instantly feel welcome and made a fuss of the children, chatting with them whilst we had a much needed cup of tea. When we were shown our room, I was pleasantly surprised. Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated, it had the feel of more a quality hotel than a B&B. The breakfast was excellent and the service was quick and again very friendly. Situated in a very pretty village and in very relaxing surroundings It was just what I needed after a long drive. We enjoyed the over night stay so much, that we returned on our way back to the UK, again to break up the journey, and I'm glad we did. We will be returning later on in the summer, and will definately return to Vingt Grand Rue.
