“5* accommodation”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is the 6th time we've stayed at Le Jarrier but we were the first to try out the new extension on the owner's farmhouse which comprises 2 bedrooms, bathroom and lounge. This is a fantastic addition to the gite and is a lovely renovation to a high spec with old beams, large bedrooms with very comfortable beds, large bathroom with a great shower and the lounge has a large TV with a small fridge, kettle and mugs and own outside seating area. We came in a group of 6 people and the gite (only 15 yards away) is where we normally stay ( fantastic accommodation) only sleeps 4 people so we were the guinea pigs in the new extension and how lucky were we. We spent a lot of the time in the gite with the family especially at meal times but it was nice to spend time alone in the new extension. There are wonderful views on the peaceful countryside and there is a lovely swimming pool to enjoy. Yet again a massive thank you to Heather and Gary in making our holiday such a wonderful experience. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

“Very relaxing holiday. Beautiful countryside.”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from an excellent stay at Le Jarrier. A very well equipped gite surrounded by wonderful countryside. We went with the intention of having a relaxed and laid-back holiday, and we certainly succeeded in that.
Whilst the gite is located in the beautiful Alpes Manchelles with plenty to see and do, we found ourselves drawn each day to returning to Le Jarrier by early afternoon to enjoy and relax within the peaceful garden.
We were not aware of the well behaved sheep, goat, chickens and friendly cat prior to our arrival – and they really did add to the magic of our stay. We didn’t realise how entertaining and comical chickens could be. They certainly added to the fun.
I’ve just read many of the reviews here for Le Jarrier and I can truthfully say that they all generally sum up precisely what we experienced. A lovely gite which is well presented, excellent value and with very friendly and welcoming hosts.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Le Jarrier to anyone wanting a peaceful vacation within the beautiful French countryside.

“Le Jarrier Gite - Just Perfect!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a fantastic stay at Le Jarrier Gite. The owners, Heather and Garry, were always so helpful, though never intrusive.
The gite was exceptionally well equipped and very comfortable. It was spotlessly clean and the attention to detail by the owners was a credit to them. It had everything we could ask for and more.
A welcome pack was provided, including bread, butter, jam, wine - a very thoughtful touch.
The garden had amazing views with various different seating areas and an above ground pool. It was extremely peaceful and quiet and everything you need for a relaxing holiday.
We look forward to returning again next year.

We had a lovely stay at Le Jarrier. Garry and Heather were very friendly and welcoming. It was good to have the excellent welcome pack too. The gite is very well equipped and the garden/living room, in particular, is superb. This is where we lived! It is very large with views over the countryside. A wonderful sofa, dining table, large television, etc. The goat, sheep and chickens enjoyed the remains of baguettes and other scraps. We had a very relaxing time and would recommend the gite to friends. The only thing we would say is that the stairs which open directly into the main bedroom are steep. They were not a problem for us, but someone older or infirm might have difficulty with them. Perhaps this should be mentioned in the gite details.
