Where is La Grange Terrou?

We are situated just outside the small village of Saint Germain de Confolens in the department of Charente (16), South-West France. Saint Germain de Confolens is a site classe due to its medieval castle which means all building work and development is controlled to be sympathetic to the local area. The village is built on the confluence of two rivers, the Vienne and the Issoire and there are lovely walks through the village, along the river banks and up to the castle.
The property enjoys a secluded countryside setting but is just a short walk from the village. Our nearest town is 4km away in Confolens where you can find restaurants, bars, banks, supermarkets etc. Our nearest bar and restaurant, L’Estaminet, is in Esse (2km) where there is also a depot de pain for buying baguettes and croissants.
