About Gill and Mark Wooldridge
Hi there. We are Gill and Mark, proud and lucky owners of a beautiful Gascon farmhouse. We have been married for over thirty years, and have two grown up sons. We share our time between the Gers in Southwest France and the West Midlands, UK. We enjoy being outdoors, cycling, walking, skiing and playing tennis. I like to cook, read and play the piano, and Mark likes to have a 'project' on the go. We both like to entertain and spend time with our family and friends. Our farmhouse is a place where we can do all the above, and more. The warm climate and tranquility are a tonic to our busy English lives.
Gill and Mark Wooldridge purchased this Farmhouse in 2007
Why Gill and Mark Wooldridge chose Gondrin
Mid-forties, mid-life crisis! Love affair perhaps? Yes, but a love affair with another country and culture, with another place. A cold, dismal, wet February, and we are in Gascony meeting an estate agent. We have taken total leave of our senses and are trudging round houses and land, some grand, some homely, and some barely habitable. Finally, at the end of a long track off a quiet country lane, we find a stone farmhouse. There are trees growing on the inside, the walls are tumbling in, and nature is rampantly reclaiming her territory. We are captivated. What an adventure to embark upon. Two years later and there has been a transformation. A stone farmhouse with pale green shutters, surrounded by tranquil countryside welcomes her first guests. We love the pace and simplicity of rural life here.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The Gers is an unspoilt destination, well served by several airports, and good road links. The countryside is wonderful, with endless vineyards and sunflowers. It is a very relaxing destination, but there is also a huge variety of things to do within easy reach. Some people have loved the location so much that they have barely left the grounds, lazing by the pool, reading, happy with friends or their own company. Others have set to and visited villages and monuments, vineyards and restaurants, gone horse-riding, go-carting, played golf and tennis, and then come home for a cool dip in the pool. The games room is a great bonus on a wet day. There is something for everyone here. Generally the summer evenings are lovely enough to sit out until late and watch the stars come out one by one.
