Our two gites have been renovated to a high standard in what was an old Paper Mill built in 1688.

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. 

Our Gites

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.
