Guestbook

In our first year of hosting (2022) we were thrilled to be awarded airbnb 'superhost' status, an accreditation we have retained ever since.

A big thank you to Jayne & Paul for welcoming us to the beautiful gite. From check-in we felt right at home, at ease & safe. The gite was absolutely spotless & had everything you needed plus more! It really met all of our expectations . The animals made it very loveable too! Would 100% love to come back one day. — Harry & Charlie, 27 May 2024
Wonderful property and host - will definitely go back in the summer! — Keris, 25 Jan 2024
Jayne and Paul are very nice and welcoming hosts. Thank you for the welcome basket. A very nice very soothing place, surrounded by adorable cats and donkeys and chickens. Don't hesitate to stop by Jayne & Paul's place. — Claire, 17 Sep 2023
We loved the place! Very idyllic. Jayne and her husband are very friendly and made us feel welcome right away. We had a refreshing dive into the pool after our long ride, which was perfect. We also loved the donkeys. Would definitely recommend this place! — Leon, 15 Sep 2023
We had a fantastic time at the lovely house with lovely garden and pool from Jayne and Paul. Thank you very much for the beautiful time and the delicious basket with delicious snacks and drinks on arrival. Thank you so much for your helpfulness and cosiness. — Nicolette, 07 Sep 2023
I would love to keep this place a secret, but Jayne and Paul deserve everyone to know what a special experience they offer here. We arrived to a warm welcome, a refreshing drink after our long journey, and a welcome basket. It was so thoughtful and full of everything we needed and so much more. The entire place was fully stocked with thoughtful extras. Jayne and Paul couldn’t do enough for us and truly went above and beyond. They allow you the space and privacy to enjoy the house and grounds but are on-hand for anything you need. The gîte, grounds and pool were immaculate. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, it truly felt like a home from home. An absolute gem, this is the best holiday let that we have ever stayed in. If Jayne and Paul are happy to have us we will be back, and will be recommending it to everyone we know. — Sarah, 31 Aug 2023
We had a wonderful stay at No. 17. Jayne and Paul were amazing hosts who made us feel at home right away. The place was beautiful, clean and quiet, and the lovely pool made us regret we didn’t stay longer. The donkeys and cats and the gifts on arrival were an absolute plus. Would love to come back here! Recommended! — Thomas, 16 Aug 2023
We would like to thank Jayne & Paul who were fabulous hosts, the welcome pack was much appreciated. A beautiful property, gardens & facilities with secure off road parking. Set in a quiet location we felt very comfortable & relaxed there & will definitely be returning. The whole experience far exceeded our expectations. Jan & Mike — Janice, 15 Aug 2023
We had a great time staying at the gite of the likeable couple Jayne and Paul. Very nice place, beautiful garden, beautiful and stylish cottage, lovely bed, sweet cats and donkeys. It is nice and close to the village, so we were able to do shopping and eat out on foot. Easy parking behind the gate, through the beautiful driveway. They were able to answer all our questions. The hot tub that Paul warmed up for us was also very nice. The warm welcome by these thoughtful hosts is definitely recommended! — Anke, 05 Aug 2023
Jayne and Paul are lovely and very welcoming to guests. The night at their place was perfect with very comfortable bedding! — Thibault, 01 Aug 2023
Great nice place. Total peace and quiet.. sweet and welcoming hosts.. lovely enclosed garden with distinguished clean pool.. lots of sun space if you are into it - but also several shade places. Car can stand inside the grounds behind the lock and gate. The description of the place fits - everything is as it says - you won't be missing anything. You are also never alone - there is always a cat or 3 around you.. The city is so close for both going out to eat and also shop. There are small brochures on various cities around Le Dorat in the info folder - which was of great benefit. Jayne and Paul just get 100% recommendation from us, their guests from Denmark — Denis, 22 Jul 2023
What a special place this is. So tranquil with beautiful grounds, pool and wood fired hot tub - it made for such a relaxing stay. 2 nights definitely wasn’t long enough, we didn’t want to leave! Jayne, Paul and Sam made us feel so welcome and are around if you need anything but leave you to enjoy the beautiful space. Our gîte was tastefully decorated with very high quality fixture, fittings, linen and all the essentials you could need, including a very thoughtful welcome basket. The private outside dining space was a perfect way to enjoy dinner in the summer sun. The small town of Le Dorat is a short walk away and very picturesque, however we loved the outside space by the pool so much we spent most of our time here soaking it up! We also enjoyed the company of the resident cats and Paul let us feed the donkeys which we loved. No.17 is a really special place, don’t hesitate to book - you’ll love it! — Jenny, 04 Jul 2023
Jayne and Paul made us feel very welcome, yet remained discreet. It very much felt like home from home. The pool is a great bonus, as is being able to walk to the bakers and restaurants. As pet lovers ourselves it was nice to see their menagerie. Every home comfort was available. Definitely one of the best places we have stayed at. — Chris, 30 Jun 2023
Jayne and Paul are the perfect hosts. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable but not intrusive on your stay. Le Sellarie at No17 are 2 gites adjoining the owners home. 1 x 1 bed, and 1 x 2 bed gite. We stayed in the 1 bed which was beautiful and had been done to such a high standard. We were lucky enough to be the only ones staying, so Jayne kindly showed us around the 2 bed gite, as we will very likely be back in the future. They have done a stunning job. Each gite has it's own area to dine and relax so we would have no issue booking if others were staying. The grounds are more than big enough to find your own space. The pool was wonderful! Clean, well maintained and so welcome in the sunshine, of which there was plenty. We loved it so much that we decided to stay another night (unplanned). We were lucky our gite was free. This property and experience is fantastic value for money. The town of Le Dorat has a train station, so easy to get to and the town is steeped in history. We were driving around the area, so visited many sites nearby. Supermarket nearby as well. — Simone, 21 Jun 2023
A small paradise ideal for relaxing for a short or long stay. Jayne & Paul are really adorable and very discreet. We'll be glad to return! — Valentine, 20 May 2023
Excellent stay at Jayne's! The accommodation is very nice and we were able to enjoy the garden, pool and even the hot tub. Jayne and Paul are attentive and warmly welcome you. I highly recommend a stay at their home! — Camille, 08 May 2023
Very nice and very quiet place. Very friendly hosts — Gregory, 07 May 2023
Absolutely fabulous! We had a fantastic week in Le Dorat. Jayne and Paul are the perfect hosts in all respects. It felt like a warm nest to arrive in their gîte, everything one would wish for is available, the best Airbnb we have ever visited! We cannot recommend this place enough and we will for sure return as soon as possible. A pity we could only award 5 stars, a galaxy full of stars would be more appropriate 😌. Thank you very much Jayne and Paul for an unforgettable stay at your place! — Philip, 28 Jan 2023

I highly recommend this listing .

Great stay at Jayne and Paul's with my partner.
Lovely people, an extremely clean and well-equipped cottage, a beautiful pool, a private terrace, it was really great.
i would recommend it without hesitation.
thanks again Jayne, we loved it!

We had a wonderful time at Jayne and Paul's house! The house was full of comforts, very spacious and very clean. Upon arrival we received a very extensive welcome package, with all kinds of delicacies. There were games for all ages, also for the pool.
Our daughters (4 and 6 years old) were allowed to feed the chickens and donkeys every day and picked a full container of blackberries every day. In short, highly recommended!
— Marjella, 06 Aug 2022
A lovely, clean and cozy house where everything has been thought of. It was also really enjoying the spacious pool with beautiful quiet garden. Upon arrival we were surprised with a welcome package with delicacies. Jayne and Paul were particularly friendly, welcoming and helpful. Le Dorat is within walking distance of the gîte, so convenient to get fresh bread in the morning. Nearby, there is also plenty to see and do. Staying in this gîte is highly recommended!!! — Babette, 23 Jul 2022
What a gem!!!! Such a beautiful property. The house has two fabulous bedrooms both with beautiful furniture and modern, excellent en-suites. Bedrooms are on separate sides upstairs so felt very private, so great for two couples or a family. The beautiful wooden staircase leads up to a lovely window with a view to the pool, which was a real treat to see every time you went up and down the stairs!!!! Kitchen was equipped with literally everything you could wish for, from a great oven, to a big fridge freezer, tons of crockery, glasses, etc. Jayne left an incredible amount for us too….bread, cheese, ham, eggs( fresh from the chickens!!), a variety of drinks as well as sweets, biscuits, crisps and a great coffee machine with a huge selection of coffee pods and teas!! The pool was just stunning…. Immaculate and sparkling! There are numerous places to sit, a beautiful area by the kitchen or a gorgeous shaded area over the other side of the pool. There are modern sun loungers, little tables and umbrellas all around the pool as well. Even the gardens and flower pots were kept beautifully. So well placed as well… you felt you were in rural France, surrounded by fields ( loved the donkeys, chickens and your beautiful cats!!) but were actually only a 5 minute walk from Le Dorat with it’s lovely bakers, butchers, supermarket and restaurants! Thank you Jayne and Paul for a wonderful week. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a beautifully converted house, an amazing large pool and some real French food and drink!! We hope to be back!! Paula, David, Ben and Elise. XX — Paula, 02 Jul 2022
Super friendly host with an outstanding place in a peaceful and tranquil environment. Such a clean and comfy room, the bed was sooo comfy. Thank you for the basket with Milk, wine, bread & Cheese. A little local village within walking distance. We would love to come back again, our stay wasn’t long enough! Thank you! — Melissa, 18 Jun 2022

The house was wonderful, newly renovated, clean and comfortable - it had everything we needed and more. The swimming pool was a great feature and our daughter loved it. The hosts, Jayne and Paul, are super friendly too. Had a great stay. — Ian, 05 Jun 2022
what a fantastic stay at Jayne's and Paul's! a little bit of heaven in this cute village. everything is perfect, the house, the terrace, the pool, the donkeys... everything perfectly clean. The double bed is very large!
Lots of great attentions from the perfect hosts. It's a hidden gem so jump on it before it quickly becomes superhost and overbooked!;)
— Ghislain, 01 Jun 2022
Very nice stay as a family with Jayne and Paul. The house is located in a quiet area, very clean, very well equipped and very pretty; the garden and its pool are really nice. Jayne and Paul are also attentive hosts, very welcoming and discreet. Thank you again — Estelle, 29 May 2022

I am won over and I recommend it!
