Hello! We invite you to our safe and fun space for your family to holiday!
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!

You could venture into the games room where there’s a vast collection dvds, which you can borrow to watch in the comfort of your gite. While you’re there you could always play table tennis 🙂 or have a go on the playstation. We have scattered a few other toys around the room, please enjoy.
