About Teresa and Steve Magill

Teresa and Steve Magill 'retired' to France in 2005.

When we bought the property, the Stone Barn had already been converted into 4 Gites.

We spent our first winter redecorating, refurbishing, repainting and re furnishing and generally bringing them up to date.

We live here full time with our two sons, a pony and our two lovely friendly dogs, Frank and Betty (!) and two cats. We are both Londoners, real townies, and after 10 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 (no traffic lights for 20 kilometres!!!!) and our peace and quiet.

Running the gites was an eye-opener , although I am a qualified chef, we had no experience of this sort of enterprise and the business came ready made so we really hit the ground running. It took us a year or two to get into the swing of dealing with all that was involved, 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.

Teresa and Steve Magill purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Teresa and Steve Magill chose Lot

We had holidayed in Rural France on several occasions, and were really taken with this area. It's green and undulating and fresh 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 and although we did a lot of work to upgrade the gites and then more work on the house, it now works for the whole family and we feel it was worth it.

We are close to a village with an all year community, which was very important to us, as our boys both went to school in Salviac 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 this very French tradition and do you know what? We think they have got it about right!

What makes this cottage unique

Even in the winter, when the trees are covered in frost, we can wrap ourselves in fleeces and sit outside in the morning 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.

Beautiful French Gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August last year. The property is perfect and has everything you need, as well as a fantastic pool. There are so many beautiful places to visit Teresa and Steve could not have done more to look after us - nothing was too much trouble. We are planning to return this summer.
