    Description

    We an English semi retired couple living full time in the beautifully peaceful countryside of the Southern Gers. We look out onto green fields and woodland with the Pyrenees mountains in the distant. We have two self contained fully equipped units attached to our home, with a maturing Garden and swimming pool for summer use. Our nearest village, Marciac is 7km away so own transport is useful.
