About Nick Cobb

Nick and Kristy, having spent many years enjoying holidays in France, discovered this beautiful region and fell in love with it immediately. Having spent most of our years commuting to London we decided to settle here this year and we would now like to welcome you to our little piece of paradise.

Nick Cobb purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Nick Cobb chose Vienne

Our home is set within a hamlet surrounded by rolling countryside filled with sunflowers and vines, but with easy access to the N10 you can soon be sampling the variety and abundance of life within the nearby bustling market towns.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Enjoy any of the many attractions nearby (Futurescope, Valley de Singes, Kyaking, adventure parks, water parks to mention a mere few), spend a day at the beach along the stunning coastline of La Rochelle or simply relax by our beautiful pool and if you wish enjoy a home cooked meal or a BBQ prepared by us.

Kristy and Nick are the perfect hosts - very helpful yet not remotely intrusive. We had a wonderful week. Very many thanks again.

Return Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this lovely house in Traversay. Much as we enjoyed our first visit, this was even better.. The surroundings and certain subtle improvements will ensure that we return in the near future.

A Fantastic Week at Maison Miche

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Maison Miche. We arrived at Poitiers airport after a very easy flight from Stansted on Monday afternoon where we were met by Nick and Kristy who were very welcoming. The farmhouse itself is absolutely beautiful with traditional French features. We spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool (always very clean) which is lovely and peaceful. The house has a great BBQ area which we used to cook our meals most days. Using the bikes Nick and Kristy have available for guests to use we cycled into the local village which is very picturesque. The house was absolutely spotless with everything you need and more. The beds are very comfortable with high quality bed linen used. The kitchen is very spacious with everything you need along with a relaxing lounge. I will definitely be re-booking to return this year, there was nothing I could fault about Maison Miche.

Great Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked a week in this picturesque farm house last year only to be very pleased with the clean accommodation on offer and the excellent facilities that the whole family enjoyed. Having 2 young children meant that we spent a lot of time around the pool, cooking on the BBQ and having a drink while the children played in the swimming pool. We found that the owner could not be more helpful and answered all our questions in detail prior to our booking. I am just about to book another 2 weeks for this year and now we realise that the accommodation is so spacious, we have decided to invite friends for the second week.

Would thoroughly recommend this place for relaxing and recharging the batteries!

Arrived later than expected on Thursday evening after a long & stressful drive from Perpignan. We were welcomed with a glass of wine by the owners. The property is full of character and was absolutely spotless. High quality cotton bed linen on a very comfortable bed meant we slept well and awoke to use the lovely swimming pool, after a relaxing bike ride through the picturesque countryside, followed by a barbecued lunch.

We drove out the next day for lunch in a pretty village with a lovely old chateau and a delightful river running beside us.

All in all we had an excellent, relaxing visit and left feeling completely chilled out.
