                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Teresa and Steve Magill 'retired' to France in 2005. We Bought the property from a Dutch couple who had already converted the barn into 4 holiday gites. We live here full time with our two sons, a pony and our two lovely dogs, Frank and Betty (!) who are free to roam around our un-fenced 14 acre property. We are both Londoners, real townies, and after 9 years, we still have to stop and listen to the silence. Of course, we miss 'civilisation' but after two or three days in London, we long to get away from the traffic, the noise, the hustle and bustle and the grime and back to our clean air, our traffic free roads and our peace and quiet. Running the gites was an eye-opener , neither of us had any experience in this sort of enterprise and this business came ready made, we really hit the ground running. It took us a year or two to get into the swing of dealing with all that running holiday gites involves, but I think we have got the hang of it now and we have several clients who come back time and time again so we must be doing something right. We have met (and made friends with) a great many people from all over the world and this has been a hugely enriching experience.

                      Why the Owner Chose Le Pech Gaillard:
                      We had holidayed in Rural France on several occasions, and were really taken with this area. Its green and undulating and peaceful and clean.. I could go on and on. When we made the decision to move to France, we probably looked at 30 properties. This old stone farmhouse seemed to fit the bill perfectly, although we did a lot of work to the house and the gites to get them to work for us and the family, it was worth it. We are close to a village with an all year community and the locals have made us very welcome. The area is not densely populated but at the same time, we are not completely cut off. The shops still close for lunch for two hours, which takes some getting used to but, hey, we now embrace the very french lunch break and do you know what? We think they have got it about right!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Even in the winter, when the trees are covered in frost, we can wrap ourselves in fleeces and sit outside with our coffee and crosissants and take in the breathtaking view from our terrace. We may not be earning city salaries, but this is priceless.
