"beautiful and relaxing, so peaceful."

We don't normally stay in gites on the owners property but we are so glad we did this year.
Heather and Garry made us feel so welcome and were there if we needed them but without being intrusive.
The animals were so entertaining.
We had everything that we could have wished for and will certainly be returning with family next time.
So thank you for a fantastic holiday Heather and Garry.

"Fabulous place"

The site was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, a real home from home. Equipped with everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect for peace and tranquility. The owners are onhand if there are any issues or questions. I would highly recommend.

"Home from home, relax"

Everything needed is there, one of the most fully equipped gite we have stayed in.
Even on wet days there are DVDs, PSP games, CDs and board games to play.
Although the owners are on site you would never know it. The privacy is great.
The views from the gite are beautiful, and sun sets stunning.
Sheep and goat present for feeding waste bits too,and cats to play with.
So relaxing, home from home

"All we wanted & more."

A perfect setting for a first class gite, supported by the most friendly & helpful of hosts in Garry & Heather. A compact gite with all the facilities we were looking for. Set in beautiful countryside, this is the perfect base to explore the region or simply relax in the garden and dip in the pool. The whole experience was very good, with nothing to dislike.

"Well-Equipped Gite in Stunning Location"

We were so well looked after by Heather and Garry that we felt immediately at home at Le Jarrier. The gite was well-equipped and catered for entertaining all age groups, eg pool, outdoor games, Playstation, DS + games, board games, together with lots of tourist information on places of interest.
