Le Gers is a private house set within its own courtyard. The small hamlet is in a no through road with only a couple of house. There isnt any through traffic but the odd tractor goes up and down to the farm across the road depending on season. You can walk from the bottom of the garden across fields to the river and the local village which has a selection of restaurants, an organic farm shop and a small organic food market on Sunday mornings in high season.
