We have the honour to announce a change of ownership at our beloved Café Cour du Miracle, a charming English run café-restaurant located at the heart of one of France’s petites-cités-de-charactere, Vouvant.
Karen and Paul. the current proprietors, have announced their retirement! For nine years they were part of the community in Vouvant and the surrounding area, serving great food and afternoon teas with a warm welcome.
Karen says: “We have enjoyed our time at Cour du Miracle. We’ve met lovely people over the years, tourists and locals alike. We have good memories to carry away with us. Now it’s time to travel and enjoy our retirement. We have plans!” Paul and Karen would like to thank everybody for their loyal patronage and support over the years and they hope to see you in or around the Vendée.
In recent weeks the new owners, Suzanne and Dean Richards, have been shadowing Karen and Paul at the café. They are British expats who have lived and worked in Australia for over twenty years. Suzanne and Dean hope to bring some of the café and coffee culture that is so popular in Australia, to the Vendée; while continuing le Cour du Miracle’s tradition of supporting the artist and tourism community in and around the medieval village.
Please join us in sending Karen and Paul a wholehearted thank you and congratulations. We wish them all the best for a beautiful retirement!
The café is closed now from the 15th March to 10th April for a freshen up.
From April 10th, Sue and Dean will welcome you as the new owners at Cafe Cour du Miracle in Vouvant! (updates and new website to be announced soon.)
