Jackie and Terry have put their heart and soul into creating a safe, fun space for your family
The owners, Terry and Jackie lived most of their lives between Scotland and Ireland. Terry is Manx-born and Jackie has both Scottish and Irish blood running through her veins. It was during 2015 when an opportunity for some hard and rewarding work presented itself in the form of a Gite holiday complex in France. After much deliberation, they accepted the challenge and bought into this unique gite complex aptly named Domaine du Sourire
Jackie’s father Sandy had spent many years in France supporting Dawn, Mark and his sister Teresa build this fantastic site, so it seemed only fitting to buy into it. Jackie and Terry are both hands on people with a can do attitude and a willingness to help all guests in any way possible. Just ask and they will do their best to make it happen! A visit to Domaine du Sourire will have you begging to return time and time again; after all, we do aim to please!
Included for all guests
A Gite holiday means that the owners live onsite, so upon arrival you can expect a personal welcome. Just let us know what time you expect to arrive and the rest will be taken care of. Jackie or Terry will offer you a tour of the grounds and answer any question you might have. You will be supplied with keys to your private Gite and and open invitation to explore our grounds.
We make up a small food parcel for all guests, so tuck in, enjoy and relax. The WiFi network is called ‘DUS’ and there is no password, simply connect your devices and explore the information under the ‘Places to Visit’ menu on our website or ask us for recommendations on where to go and what you can expect in this beautiful rural area in France.
There are four newly renovated gites, three of which are adapted for wheelchair users. Onsite facilities include adapted indoor games and soft play rooms, adapted heated swimming pool and many other accessible activities to ensure guests have a fun and relaxing stay. Specialist beds/equipment can be provided on request.

All Gites have a private garden where pets can relax or play, we won’t ever say no to pets and will provide drinking bowls upon request.
Do keep in mind that not all guests feel the same towards pets and we do ask that you are respectful of everyone and ask in advanced if you wish to let your pets outside of the private garden provided with your Gite.
We may be able to help dog/cat sit if you need, just ask in reception and we will help out where possible.
