Confolens (Occitan: Cofolents) is a commune in southwestern France. It is one of the two sub-prefecture of the Charente department. Confolens is the administrative center of a largely rural district, which has seen the development of tourism in recent years.
Confolens is located at the confluence of the Vienne and Goire rivers. This location is at the origin of its name. Confolens is also at the point where the Charente and Limousin regions meet, hence the name sometimes used to describe the area of "Charente Limousine".
