Fantastic opportunity for a young energetic person/couple to buy a lovely house on the banks of the River Vienne. The house is sold with 2 businesses up and running with proven income. These businesses have 5 star reviews on trip adviser and facebook. The potential also for growth is enormous. At present we turnover 120,000 euros per year operating daytimes only. Potential for evenings (music nights), weddings and parties have yet to be realised.


  • Prime Location
  • Good climate
  • Minimal set up costs

The location is important. The Town has a vibrant expat community and a progressive Maire. The village has recently been voted a "Petit Cite de Character" and as such is promoting a healthy tourism.
The town hosts a very important world music festival each year . See link.
Confolens boasts a modern newly constructed hospital. It also has a Cinema and 2 supermarkets.
Confolens is almost equidistant from 3 important cities, Angouleme, Limoges and Poitiers.

Reason for selling.

The main reason for selling is to retire. I am 66 and the amazing success of ARThé has taken me a year past retirement. If I were younger there would be no question about selling ARThé!!

We now cook a plat du jour every lunchtime also a Desert and Gateaux. The mornings consist of preparations of the main dish. Midday onwards is busy serving our home cooked food to our cliental.
