Capital of the Charente-Limousin

Confolens is the capital of the Charente-Limousin. It is located a mere 30 minutes from Limoges and an hour from Poitiers. The name Confolens comes from the word confluence and that is exactly where it is situated between the River Vienne and the River Goire.

A Popular Place for a Long time

Confolens is an ancient town with it routes extending far earlier than the arrival of the Romans. There are a number of ancient sites in the vicinity filled with prehistoric standing stones. The Romans went on to use the town as a garrison for its army. It has now developed into a typical French, bustling market town.

Split by the Vienne

The broad River Vienne splits the town into two and provides perfect opportunities for watersports enthusiasts. The variation in depth across the Vienne means that it suits a wide variety of river traffic from Kayaks to motorboats. If you'd rather stay on dry land then rest assured. Tennis, bowls and archery are also popular.

A Good Place for Fish

If you're into your fishing then you'll be interested to know that Confolens is classed in the French national category 2. For those of you who don't know the first thing about fishing then this broadly means that zander, pike, trout and carp are all to be found lurking in both the town's rivers and menus.

And a Good Place for Leisure

Confolens is famous for its folk festival called "Danses et Musiques du Monde". It is held every August and attracts a large number of visitors. The area in which Confolens is situated is perfect for those with a love of the outdoors. Hiking, walking, rambling, cycling and horse riding are all well catered for with a number of clearly marked paths and tracks. If you need to give your feet a rest, however, don't worry. The town's unique Velo Railway makes travelling around the town considerably easier.
