Le Queroy is situated in South West France fifty miles South of Poitiers.
We are just 40 mins drove from Limoges airport, and only an hour away from Poitiers airport. We are 4 hours drive from Caen ferry port and 6 hours drive from Calais.
We are fifteen minutes drive from the nearest town of Confolens, which has two Supermarkets, a Chemist, Hospital, Opticians, Cinema, Office of Tourism and various other shops, with restaurants and cafes dotted around.
When you are not fishing there is Futuroscope, The Cognac distilleries, Vallee des Singes, Parc Animalier, and the Velorail nearby to explore.
The Vienne River is stunning and the area generally is very beautiful and lends itself to numerous photographic opportunities. In warmer months the lakes of the Haute Charente are a must for families, and the cities of Angouleme, Poitier and Limoges are situated in a triangle surrounding Le Queroy each approximately 45 minutes away by car offering extensive shopping and restaurants. Our region also boasts one of the highest numbers of historical places of interest in the whole of France, and there are lots of caves to visit. Oradour-sur-Glane is a commune where the original population was famously destroyed on 10th June 1944 by the occupying forces, perfectly maintained as a permanent memorial and museum and makes a very interesting day out.
We are located at the end of a small hamlet, enjoying a very peaceful and undisturbed position on the edge of a slight hill, with panoramic views towards the Vienne valley on one side and our lakes on the other.
Our visitors invariably journey to us by road using the extensive superb network of French motorways (somewhat more enjoyable than the English motorways and traffic jams!) The channel crossings most frequently used are Dover to Calais P&O) which is approx 6 hours away and Portsmouth to St. Malo or Caen which is approx 4.5 hours away (Brittany Ferries or DFDS)
