A beautifully restored gite situated in the peaceful, ancient village of Migron, with local shops, surrounded by acres of vineyards and sunflowers. Close to the great towns of Cognac, Saintes and St Jean D'Angely. A fantastically peaceful countryside location, but less than 40 minutes to the beach.
Excellently furnished and equipped throughout. Solar panel heated and refurbished pool, lovely grounds with orchard and BBQ.

Le logement
A charming, beautifully refurbished two/three bedroom gite situated in the old stables of an 18th-century Charentaise house in the peaceful village of Migron - the heart of the Cognac/Pineau producing area.

Renovated with great care, L'Ecurie enjoys a beautiful, planted terrace leading directly on to the pool - perfect for breakfast in the sunshine - as well as an orchard for guests' exclusive use. Please pick the fruit and herbs...or simply enjoy sharing the rustic iron, double swing as the perfect place for a quiet read or coffee...

The pool is heated by solar panels and is 9m by 4m with a consistent depth of 1.5m. It is fully fenced with "childproof" gates. The pool has internal steps and is shared with the adjoining house. A shaded terrace overlooks the pool making the supervision of children that much easier, as well as being a great place for a quiet read. Other paved areas within the pool enclosure have a supply of sunbeams for picking up the rays...

L'Ecurie retains much of its original character, with solid oak beams, exposed stonework and plenty of rural architectural features. The private driveway and entrance is alongside the orchard.

The kitchen/living/dining area is open plan, and double doors lead directly on to a private terrace and the beautifully landscaped pool area beyond. Upstairs are two loft bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with twin beds and both with fitted cupboards and shelves. A French day bed, situated in a mezzanine level upstairs, can also be converted into a night bed to accommodate a fifth and sixth person if required.

Facilities at L'Ecurie include: satellite TV (including BBC and ITV); French terrestrial TV, DVD player, full-sized dishwasher and washing machine.

Alongside books, maps, board games and tourist leaflets are many suggestions for days out and information on local shops, restaurants and markets. Wireless Broadband is available at no cost.

L'Ecurie can also be hired with the adjacent Thouvenin, also on Airbnb to provide accommodation for up to 15 people.
Up to 20% off Brittany Ferries travel is available on all bookings.

Où se situe le logement

Migron, Aquitaine-Limousin-Poitou-Charentes, France

The small village of Migron, with its pretty, 11th Century stone church, is perfect for those who don't want to be too remote, with a boulangerie, a well-stocked mini-market, complete with a tiny coffee shop, post office and a weekly grocer's van selling fresh local vegetables.

Oysters and mussels are sold in front of the epicerie every Saturday morning and a pizza van visits every Monday evening.

Close by are the wonderful towns of Saintes, Cognac and St Jean d'Angely, each very different, but all with historic buildings and good shopping. Closer still are Matha and Burie, with supermarkets, bars and restaurants.

In Cognac, 20 minutes' drive away, there's a chance to visit some of the world-famous Cognac distilleries and like the beautiful old Roman town of Saintes, also 20 minutes away, there is the River Charente flowing through its centre. Saintes has elegant boulevards, good museums, a Roman ampitheatre and two cathedrals.

Excellent markets can be found nearby on just about every day of the week - we'll supply you with a list. Brocantes (or flea markets) are held in local villages on most weekends, and artisans fairs - such as the annual Foire aux Vins in Migron held in July - are frequent throughout the summer.

Cognac also has an international music festival, which attracts the biggest names, but also has music in every cafe and the pedestrianised streets.

The beautiful sandy beaches of Royan are just forty minutes away. And then there are the islands.. Ile de Re, home to celebrities and feeling more like Greece than France... and Ile d'Oleron a two mile ride across an amazing bridge and miles and miles of undeveloped beaches backing onto pine forests. And if you want a taste of them all there's no better than the preserved steam railway that runs throughout the summer.

Other attractions nearby includetwo water-slide parks just 20 minutes' distance and a world-class a zoo. Also within an hour's drive are Bordeaux, Rochefort and La Rochelle with its historic port, stunning aquarium and fantastic shopping.

Cognac and Pineau des Charentes - a local aperitif - are available to taste and buy direct from local producers, and local specialities include goats' cheeses, oysters from the Marennes, mussels, and other wonderful seafood from the Atlantic coast. The best 'local' wine is Bordeaux - most grapes grown here are for Cognac or Pineau - and there are caves (wine co-operatives) in several local towns.

Migron and the surrounding area is excellent for cycling - miles and miles of level countryside with virtually traffic-free routes through vineyards, fields, woodland and villages. Other activities include river trips, antiques markets (large brocantes held in surrounding villages regularly throughout the summer), visits to chateaux, churches and museums, walking, cycling and birdwatching (74 hectares of lagoon nature reserves in the area).

Sport and leisure in the area include golf (18-hole courses in both Cognac and Saintes which are 20 minutes away), horseriding, all types of fishing, tennis (including a court in the village), canoe-kayaking (boats to hire at various places along the Charente in Cognac and Saintes), and plenty of space in and around the village to kick a football.

The region is littered with historic villages, cosmopolitan cities and some of France's most beautiful beaches with miles of white sand. Its not a heavily populated area, with a real sense of space, but with good motorway links that makes travelling quick and easy. It's a wonderfully varied landscape, with seemingly endless vineyards and sunflower fields stretching to the horizon all around our village. Head towards the coast though and you encounter beautiful sea marshes, packed with wildlife and a bird watcher's paradise.
