  • Description

    Description

    I live here all year round on my own with my family regularly visiting.( My daughter’s name is Rebecca, hence her name coming up first, my name is Stephen) There is plenty to do here as we are also currently building a sauna! The buildings are dated from the 16th Century onwards. There is a lovely swimming pool and pool area several barns with heavy machinery for building works, and a vast amount of gardening to do also with a vegetable garden.

    I am a master craftsman builder so plenty of knowledge to gain from him if you are interested in learning. ( note some of the photographs are from when my daughter and her son was living here from 2012-2015) She now lives nearby and I see them regularly

    The day to day running of the property is fairly key to this placement. As well as some building work and specific projects to do with maintenance. We have all of the equipment and tools for these jobs. Roughly 5 hours a day needed but can be more or less depending on weather and the project in hand. Some help with daily tasks cooking, cleaning, and washing.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This area of the Gers is stunningly beautiful and at times reminiscent of Tuscany. There are several very interesting Abbeys and monuments in the area. The wine, Armagnac and Foie Gras in this region is famous and world renowned. The location we are in is very secluded, peaceful with plenty of wonderful walks and day trips to see interesting fortified villages ( we have bikes too!) It is somewhere to enjoy nature, rural French living and life. It would be a gift of time we could give you and in exchange a wonderful help for us!!
