Surrounded By Beautiful Countryside
The region is known for its gentle undulating countryside with fields of sunflowers, picturesque rivers and lakes, its wines and sunny climate.

There are many places of interest and activities to suit all tastes and ages, including swimming, canoeing, fishing, cycling, golf, woodland zip-wires, horseriding, wine tasting, sites of historic interest and numerous châteaux.
Our two gites have been renovated to a high standard in what was an old Paper Mill built in 1688.
What to See & Do
We are close to the Charente/Dordogne border within easy reach of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, Brantome and Perigueux.
A Little About Us
We are the Meekings family and we moved to France from London in 2012 to embark upon our new French adventure.
Moulin de la Barde Gites comprises of two beautifully renovated holiday gîtes which are light and airy with modern fixtures and fittings. “Le Petit Raisin” and “Le Grand Cornet” are virtually identical and both comfortably sleep 6. The gîtes have their own private patio with garden furniture. For families and friends renting both properties at the same time, there is the option of unlocking the adjoining gate between the two patios, thus making access easier.
What our guests say ...
"Congratulations on creating a wonderful holiday home. Its a lovely peaceful place to stay and your provision of baby items was especially helpful, and shopping too when we were delayed en route! Many thanks indeed. There's plenty nearby that we didn't explore. Maybe we'll be back!
A great place to stay to explore this wonderful area in France. Lovely weather and a wonderful Gite made it the perfect holiday for us all. Your kindness and hospitality was the icing on the cake. We wish you and your family all the best (and hope Gary's hand is ok!) and will be back to this area again soon.
Thank you so much for your hospitality. We enjoyed your lovely property and the very comfortable gite. Inspite of very high temperatures we managed to relax and enjoy the beautiful environment.
