“Beautiful oasis of nature,nurture and relaxation: Lovely private, holiday destination”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

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 eye on them while they are in the beautifully clean pool (looked after by the fastidious Steve, who was exceptional at keeping the water safe and user friendly) The pool is protected well by a barrier, I very much liked this, perhaps not as important to us now, but would have loved this extra precaution when our children were much younger.

The gite itself was great, excellent communication on any requests, good powerful shower, cool, comfortable rooms during the night and slept like a log every night, so did our children. Exellent gas hob facilities for cooking, nice touch was the lovely wild flowers from the garden on arrival, along with a welcome pack of wine, bread, milk, butter and nibbles.

I was so impressed by the beautiful herb garden, which had a huge sage, oregano, bay and rosemary plantation, we took every advantage of this and had the most amazing pork, pasta, lamb and duck using these wonderful herbs. Sarah the gite's carer was a wonderful help and gave us lots of herbs from her own garden too. Lovely mature trees and shrubs surround the property, with climbing ivy. The gite's grounds has an abundance of gorgeous lavender and as night fell the aroma was amazing! The front of the gite has a lovely wrought iron summer seat where we watched the bats ( birds that my husband recognised and I would have no idea of ) and the stars while enjoying a glass of wine, divine!

We already love the French and their way of life, their appreciation and importance of agriculture and sense of looking after their surroundings, it is to be embraced.The locals always greet you and smile, a resilient culture. This is the place to come where you can forget work, the rushed cup of tea and cornflakes as well as the the rush hour traffic... We really had a fantastic time, back home to the rain and wind, wish I was still there, highly recommended. Many thanks tres bien!!

“Lovely property in a fantastic location”

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.

“Fabulous property in a beautiful part of unspoilt France”
Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

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. In the mornings you wake up to the sound of church bells and cockrels, a very relaxing start to the day. Or you can just laze around the large, clean open air pool in the garden!
Migron itself has a couple of small shops for fresh produce and the people are very welcoming.
Local towns well worth visiting are Cognac (the Hennesey tour was very interesting), Saintes (with its very well preserved amphitheatre) and for a fabulous beach head to Royan. La Rochelle is a bit further but well worth a visit, with a large harbour, boutique type shops and plenty of cafes/restaurants along the harbour front. There are also lots of smaller villages you pass through and these are great to stop off and walk around, with hardly another person in sight!
We flew to Bordeaux and hired a car from the airport. We did a lot of travelling around and only had to fill the car once during our stay (it was only a small car but more than adequate as the roads are flat and exceptionally good).
Booking the gite was very easy and you receive a pack with all the information you need.
I would thoroughly recommend this property, we had a wonderful time and will definitely be going back!

“Charming stay”

Wonderful welcome in the form of an arrival kit with a treasure of information on the region and basic necessities provided by Julie the caretaker, which is very valuable in France where shops are closed on Sundays. The accommodations were pristine, and when the fridge gave up on us it was replaced briskly. The large and always clean pool was a delight. And thanks to its central location in a quiet village, we could easily and happily meet with locals. Would certainly rent it again.

“Second holiday here every bit as good as the first was!”

Just returned from our second lovely, relaxed holiday at L'Ecurie. The whole process from first enquiry to leaving the property at the end of the holiday was effortless. The gite was clean on arrival, with a few essentials waiting in the fridge. Julie, who looks after the property brilliantly (she even removed a wasp's nest for us during our first stay a few years ago), is an expert on local amenities and points of interest. Migron itself is rural, but the large garden and clean, safely enclosed pool provided more than enough entertainment for our children, and there are beaches and other amenities within driving distance. The pool is definitely a family favourite, and our only down point was having to leave!
