  • What a wonderful three weeks we had! Jayan certainly doesn't fail to dissapoint, it is everything and more that we hoped for. We have been 'self catering' in France for more than 30 years and can honestly say this is the best place and overall experience that we have had... We will miss the expensive farmland views, wildlife and the calm & tranquillity. We very much needed the break for all sorts of reasons, and have to confess we haven't done much, though enjoyed visits to Pujol, Issigeac, Vilereal and of course Montflanquin. The Thursday morning and night markets are not to be missed! We had friends join us for a few days, and they were all charmed by this lovely place and did not want to leave. The pool has been a god send, and what a lovely clear and expansive space to relax in. Thank you Olivier for looking after it, we will miss it. Monica has been so kind and helpful, going the extra mile to do a changeover for our friends short stay. Jayan is a gem, thank you Bob & Marlene for sharing it with us, it is a real home from home and lacked for nothing. We will be back. - July 2022

  • A true home from home, what an amazing place Jayan is. We have had a superb holiday, two weeks of glorious sunshine, great company and a fabulously equipped villa. The pool is awesome, great size for six adults to have fun. We've done the Touristy bit, visited some beautiful places, seen some fabulous wildlife and eaten too much. The welcome pack was gratefully received, especially as our journey was particularly long. Monica was lovely and helpful as was Olivier. We don't want to go home! - August 2022

  • Thank you for a couple of relaxing and tranquil weeks at Jayan. Beautiful memories added to our family treasure chest. Bob and Marlene have been the most welcoming and informative hosts from the beginning, and even more importantly most responsive when we had a problem with the internet. Monica was here to welcome us with her wonderful friendliness, and Olivier even came on the first Wednesday to put the robot in the pool. All in all a big thank you for sharing Jayan with us!

  • What a fabulous week we have had in your gorgeous home. Thank you. Every we needed was here – a well stocked kitchen, comfortable sitting and dining areas, a FANTASTIC and clean pool and an amazing collection of DVD’s & books for a rainy day. We have spent most days relaxing by the pool – the wearther has been gorgeous J We leave feeling completely relaxed which with four children is quite rare!! Thank you so much for the added when looking after Polly – a comfortable cot with a duvet (luxury) and a clean, safe, highchair – she had a wonderful week! Oh, and the fabulous “Welcome Pack” was very kind – another thing to set you and your lovely home apart from others we have stayed in. Thank you again – we hope to come back again soon.

  • We have had such a fabulous 2 weeks at Jayan. The first glimpse you get of the house and pool when you come down the drive is magical and the Welcome Pack was such a lovely surprise and one we’ve never experienced in other houses we’ve holidayed in in France.The DVD, books and games were fantastic for the children (and us) and the house left you wanting nothing. We particularly loved the veranda with the beautiful big table that we could all eat at and enjoy the beautiful views and the pool….well what can I say, we LOVED it. The area is SO beautiful, the medieval towns are like stepping back into another time, totally unspoilt and the markets are great. We feel very privileged to have been able to stay such a beautiful place and we hope that one day we’ll bae back to visit again.

  • We feel totally regenerated after the most amazingly relaxing week. Jayan is stunnig, both inside and out, helped by having incredible sunshine. The perfect calm time before the arrival of our first baby in just over a months time!

  • We have had a lovely relaxing 2 weeks at Jayan. We have really enjoyed staying at your charming house. So peaceful, our children loved the wildlife in the vicinity. They saw deers, hares, wonderful birds of prey and squirrels (we don’t have them in Guernsey!). Parc en ciel was worth a visit our kids declared it was awesome and better than Walibi which saved us a trip to Agen! Loved Monflanquin and the medieval festival. Would recommend “La Bastide” (crepes) and “La Baldonia” (pizzas) for family friendly dining in Monflanquin. The night market (thursdas) was fun too. We have been renting in South West of France for years now and can honestly say that this one is one of the most comfortable and well set up homes we have stayed in. Sharp knives and decent wine glasses. Thank you for your time and advice prior to and during out visit, much appreciated. Thanks too to Patricia an dColin for keeping everything nice and tidy during our stay – lovely people. We are very fortunate that you see fit to share Jayan. The peace and the calm of the place along with the spectacular views, not to mention the pool, make it a very special place indeed. We have to come back again! Many, many thanks.

  • We have loved holidaying in your beautiful home! The pool was a godsend to our two teenage boys as was the film and book library on the not so sunny days. We would love to stay again. Not sure I’ll be recommending this one – keeping safely to myself!!

  • One of the best places we have stayed at! It accommodated us with great services and everything we needed for a pleasurable stay. The house is beautiful and it made us all feel at home. The pool was great and very clean, it kept us cool after many nice mornings out in the beautiful South of France. The many videos and DVDs were great like the pool games and board games. The beautiful surroundings made us feel very privileged to be here. Another great part of Jayan was the lovely people who own it and the housekeepers, we all hope to be back again, it was amazing! Thank you for everything.

  • Thank you for a fabulous stay at Jayan. You really have the most beautiful house and pool with such incredible views in every direction. It is also probably one of the best equipped houses we have staying in and we have been renting in France for approaching 20 years now!! It is a very special place. Thank you also for your help and attention before and during our stay. The time and trouble you took to help us was much appreciated. The welcome pack was very generous and very thoughtful. I would willingly recommend your house as a wonderful place to spend some time.

  • We’ve had a wonderful 3 weeks in this beautifully situated house surrounded by Golden Oriols, barn owls and squirrels and deer. The sun shone almost constantly, the wine was chilled and the sea food from the local market was exceptional. We enjoyed the excellent indoor tennis court at Monsepron Libos where there is a really good Thursday morning market – excellent restaurants in Monflanquin especially “Le Jardin” and “Aldaaya” the lebonese one. All in all a superb holiday in a lovely house! Thank you!

  • We used Jayan as a base for exploring the area, and had a great time. The house is excellent, really good quality throughout and the pool was wonderful. You have a great place, Pat does an excellent job – and what a great welcome basket. Thanks for letting Duke, and Nella stay they had a great time as well.
