About Gill Willis

We moved to France from the UK in March 2003, we started renovating both our house and the gite. All the renovations have been done by us with loving care to keep as much as possible of the original stone building and features. Steve is a qualified Electrician & Plumber and started his business in October 2003.Gill works for the Abbaye at Conques , since March 2005, as a femme de chambre,which involves cleaning rooms and doing laundry. Our house is directly opposite the gite so if you have problems whilst you are staying, we are always on hand.We have learnt to speak french.

Gill Willis purchased this house in 2002

Why Gill Willis chose Aveyron

We chose this property because we like the quiet, peaceful area surrounded by woodland, and the traditional stone and not many neighbours.

This property is in a quiet peaceful location with fantastic surrounding views where you can get away from it all. A well being experience Hydrotherapy Spa open 1st July to 30th September.

A delightful spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay in the Gite de Ladrech. The gite has been beautifully restored and is immaculate. It is very well equipped for both inside and outside use; we particularly enjoyed using the two patios, given the quiet location and lovely views.

Gill was very welcoming and available if we needed anything.

A conseiller autant pour le site que pour l'ameublement, la décoration et l'équipement du gite

  • 5 of 5

Le logement est bien conçu, décoré avec finesse, très propre et extrêmement bien équipé.

Deux spacieuses terrasses permettent de choisir de s'exposer au soleil ou de s'asseoir à l'ombre et un petit jardin complète cet espace extérieur. Le mobilier de terrasse et de jardin est complet et confortable. A toute heure du jour, nous nous sommes sentis à l'aise dehors et avons pleinement profiter du calme du lieu.

La pièce de séjour est spacieuse et la cuisine intelligemment conçue. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la grande cuisinière. Les chambres sont joliment ornementées et plus exiguës. L'air conditionné est utile en cas de fortes chaleurs.

Les hôtes sont accueillants et discrets.

A 5 kms au Nord de Conques, le gîte est idéalement situé pour faire des randonnées à vélo (électrique, en ce qui nous concerne) et pour profiter de Conques à toutes les heures du jour. Sénergues, d'Estaing, Espalion, Figeac, Villefranche-sur-Rouergue méritent également une visite.

Nous recommandons vivement ce gite.

Un véritable havre de paix

  • 5 of 5

Très bel endroit à 7 kms de Conques, dans un hameau au calme. La maison est très bien tenue avec l'ensemble de l'équipement nécessaire ( cuisine équipée, tv satellite, 2 toilettes, 2 chambres). 2 terrasses à l'avant et l'arrière permettant de déjeuner au choix à l'ombre ou au soleil. Endroit fleuri et entretenu avec soins par Gil et Steve, dont l'accueil discret et efficace vous laisse une impression de bien être. Pour amateurs de solitude, de sérénité, et de calme. Beaucoup de choses à faire dans la région bien évidemment. Nous reviendrons.
