A beautiful, vine-covered house situated in the peaceful, ancient village of Migron surrounded by vineyards and sunflowers. The house has a heated pool, boules, beautiful gardens and its own cafe bar. Excellently furnished and equipped throughout, with large, airy rooms which stay cool even on the hottest of Charentaise days. Close to the beautiful historic towns of Cognac, Saintes & St Jean D'Angely and just 40 minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches of Royan. Maximum rating on TripAdvisor.

The space

In the 19th century, Thouvenin was the station hotel. The railway has long since gone and quiet has returned to the village. In 2015 the mezannine area, fully undercover and accessible from the ground and first floors, was converted into a private café/bar, capturing the feel of a stylish, but lost era. Its louvred wall provides dappled shade even at the height of summer.

The village Pretre’s cassock hangs on the hatstand alongside the Gendarme’s cap, beside thirsty travellers’ luggage awaiting their departure...

It is furnished with tables and sofas and the hand crafted zinc bar has both a fridge and a freezer hidden within it. It’s a fabulous spot for breakfast, or leisurely enjoying a good book out of the sun and the perfect place for a late night drink at the end of a relaxing day. We can even arrange to stock the bar before you arrive!

Thouvenin has four bedrooms: the principal bedroom is very large, with a super-king-size bed.

The second largest bedroom, with its pretty limed-oak furniture, has a 5' double bed, and the third and fourth bedrooms are identical in size and each has bunk beds with a single on top and a pull-out double underneath. All bed rooms lead to the covered mezzanine bar.

The family bath and shower room is also situated upstairs and from April 2017 there will be a second shower room with toilet. There is a separate toilet downstairs.

Downstairs, the kitchen leads out on one side to the extremely spacious sitting room which includes two sofas and further armchairs, large colour TV with all BBC and ITV channels as well as French television, DVD player, VHS player and a CD player. Wireless Broadband is available at no cost..
