Bienvenue à Fleur de lys
Fleur de lys is situated in the peacful village of Ansac sur Vienne , with an excellent Boulangerie /Patisserie, Boucherie/Epicerie and Pharmacy, situated on the banks of the picturesque Vienne river.
The medieval market town of Confolens, in the beautiful 'Pays Charente Limousine' is about 2.5kms downstream (north) of here. There are many other attractive towns and villages to visit nearby such as: Abzac, Alloue, Brillac, Brigueuil, Chabanais, Champagne Mouton, Civray, Esse, Etagnac, Lesterps, Manot, Montemboeuf, Rochechouart, and St-Junien.
We are almost centrally located in the triangle of the historic cities of Angouleme (40mins), Limoges (50mins) and Poitiers (1hr). They are all well worth a visit to see their architecture and shops!It is approximately 2 hours from La Rochelle and the Atlantic coast , and just over an hour from the world famous distilleries at Cognac (Hennesey, Martell, Remy Martin etc. who all offer guided tours & tastings!)we are also only half an hour from France's 'Lake District' - Les Lacs du Haute Charente, with beaches, watersports and a woodland adventure park (for the energetic and brave!).
This location makes us an excellent base for those wanting to explore this beautiful and historic region.
