About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Jacqueline Keenes

We moved to France in September 2017 from Surrey in England. We have been made to feel so welcome by the locals and have made a few friends and contacts here. We have been running our house as a gite since we moved here and live in a separate house on-site. We got married at our home in September 2018 which was a wonderful celebration. We both come from a hospitality background and living in the Gers is a lot quieter, but we love it and look forward to welcoming more guests. Jacqui and Neil
