About Jill TRIER

We have been married for 30 years and have two grown up children. We moved to france 20 years ago after leaving hectic careers in the UK with a view to spend more time with our young children and live a saner life. Our farm was partly a ruin when we bought it so we have spent the last 20 years restoring the buildings, along with running two very different businesses. The cottage has provided a great deal of pleasure to my parents for 20 years as their holiday residence. Unfortunately they are no longer with us so we have completely up dated and refitted the Cottage with a view to provide the sort of standard we would expect from a holiday rental. Tam runs a house design and renovation company and I run an equestrian establishment providing lessons , hacks and liveries. Our two children have fled the nest and work in Toulouse.

Jill TRIER purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Jill TRIER chose Gers

We drove down the oak tree lined drive in june of 1993 and we knew this was the one. Having visited more than thirty properties we just felt that this was perfect. Brambles higher than us walls falling down but great potential. The location was great not too isolated , shops, doctor, school 5 minutes away, but completely private.Lovely views and enough land for me to develope a horse orientated business.And we are still here !

What makes this cottage unique

The area is full of wonderful villages, fantastic local produce (food and wine) Near enough to the coast and mountains to do a day trip.

Spain is 3 hours away as is the mediterranean.

The buildings are made of local stone which provides a sense of solidity, generations have lived and worked here , part of the cottage is mediaeval. In our modernisation work we have tried to retain the maximum of original features and character but not at the sacrifice of comfort !
