2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Migron, Charente-Maritime, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
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.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 are alongside the fruit garden of the main house (help yourself to whatever's in season). 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 be... Read more

We have been to quite a few gites in this part of Cognac, but I'Ecurie is one that we will most certainly return to. The garden and pool area is extremely private and has the advantage of the kitchen/diner to the patio direct into the garden, totally ideal if you have young to pre teens as you can keep an...

Fantastic break in a beautiful location. The Gite was everything we hoped for. We spent hours relaxing by the super pool and enjoyed the Al fresco dining. We were impressed by the amount of places to visit nearby. We will definitely be returning.

L'Ecurie is a very well equipped, typically 'French' style gite situated in a small village of Migron in the heart of beautiful countryside. The gite has everything you need for a self catering stay, even including a television with English channels so you can relax in the evening after spending the day exploring the lovely villages and towns surrounding Migron....

About the neighbourhood
The small village of Migron, with its pretty, 11th Century stone church, is perfect for those who want beautiful countryside, but don't want to be too remote, with a boulangerie, a butcher, a well-stocked mini-market compete with a tiny coffee shop, post office and a weekly visit from a fresh fish van. Oysters and mussels are sold in front of the epicerie every Saturday morning. A pizza van with a wood-burning oven visits every Monday evening

A new supermarket, with 24/7 fuel station, opened in 2016 just five minutes drive away in Burie. The same village has the nearest bar to the house.

Excellent markets can be found nearby in Saintes, Cognac, St Jean d'Angely, Matha, Burie, among others. Brocantes (or flea markets) are held in local villages on most weekends, and artisans...
