About us

Windmill Gites are two studio gites that we have built on each end of our lovely charentais farm house in Saint Savinien Sur Charente in beautiful southwest France.

We live in a little hamlet called Vaufraiche which is a 10 minute drive from the very pretty river side town of Saint Savinien.

We have 3 acres of land and we overlook the “Windmill of the Unicorn” – Moulin De La Licorne, which has been beautifully restored.

Our garden is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the stunning climate amidst walnut, mirabelle, peach, apple, pear and Hibiscus trees – plenty of shade when necessary to escape the hot sun! Although the pool that is being constructed in time for this summer will make “cooling off” even easier.

The two gites are completely self contained and are fully equipped with everything we can think of to make your holiday as stress free and relaxing. Each unit has a separate garden area for outdoor eating (especially the BBQs you have cooked!). The perfect place for enjoying the outdoor life.
