Perfection in the heart of the French countryside

The property: What is unique about Domaine du Sourire #4


Will Domaine du Sourire suit me for a holiday, will it meet my wants and needs for that well-earned break and why should I choose Domaine du Sourire?

Jackie and Terry, the hosts at Domaine du Sourire, would answer that first question with a maybe. They passionately tell you that Domaine du Sourire has amazing unique things on offer that will readily meet a variety of expectations and needs for that perfect holiday, however, they equally readily admit it will not meet everyone’s desires and needs and it is wise to consider what it does offer before making a commitment to book.

Jackie advises that you should know what you want when you are choosing and yes it can be hard when so many offer the same thing: great location and stunning views, clean and comfortable gites with all mod-cons, lovely welcome pack and gated swimming pool.

So what sets Domaine du Sourire apart? What makes Domaine du Sourire unique?

Whether you are an individual or a family or a couple, there is something at Domaine du Sourire for you.

Each of the gites have their own private patio for those alone moments or family time but what is wonderful at Domaine du Sourire is the courtyard which all guests share. This is an amazing spot and Jackie and Terry have furnished it with a massive table – which was made by Jackie’s dad, Sandy, who has since passed away, (you can read about the beginnings and the hope of Domaine du Sourire in another blog) and he made it from the original barn doors.

The courtyard is a space where families and strangers can come together in the evening or the morning or during the day to share fun times, have bring-your-own meals together, or do a BBQ and put on some homegrown entertainment. You never know what talents others have as well as taking the opportunity to showcase your own. Jackie and Terry do love a karaoke and maybe you can persuade them to hold one. These are what makes the amazing holiday memories and where long-lasting friends are found.

Domaine du Sourire is a place where one visit is never enough, you will want to come back year after year.

What makes Domaine du Sourire unique? The passion and commitment to ensure you have the best holiday experience whatever your ability. Jackie has said, “You are what makes us unique, each and every guest.”
