Gensac Tower gite is a former windmill now converted to provide unique, quality holiday accommodation for two people in this beautiful, rolling, wine region of South West France.
Set on the edge of the historic village of Gensac with its restored medieval centre and commanding views of the Durèze valley, the windmill was used as a look-out tower during the early years of WWII and the 360° views from the roof are spectacular.
This is the ideal place to experience French village life. Walk to the bakery in the morning to buy your croissants and baguette. In early spring and late autumn, catch the migrating flocks of cranes flying overhead in their hundreds. In September/October you might find us in the midst of the vendanges, grape harvest, and may well witness the grape harvest machines at work, or see trailer loads of grapes making their way up the road to the local wine cooperative. Stroll into the village in the evening for an aperitif or meal at one of the bar-restaurants, or simply relax on your own terrace watching the sun set behind the hills.
