We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely B&B and can't recommend it highly enough. It is super clean and comfortable with plenty of character situated in the centre of this charming little town. Christine is a fabulous host keeping us all well fed and watered with her wonderful home cooking. Her local knowledge is extensive so she helped us... More

My wife and I had a lovely night at Le Tournesol while travelling through the area by car with our 6 month baby daughter. The rooms and the house were spotless and warm and Christine made us welcome, comfortable and gave us the low down on the town. She provided everything parents of young kids would need but was always... More

We stayed at le Tournesol for two nights until our farmhouse let was available. Christine made us so welcome in her lovely home and accommodated our every request - timing of meals, use of iron, advice on places to visit, best restaurants in the area etc etc. When we left we felt more like friends than paying guests. We wish... More

Well, not too many, anyway! As the other reviews have suggested, Christine is a perfect host and a mine of information about the area and its many attractions, all of which are underreported. We stayed 4 nights and were made really welcome in a lovely home with every facility you could wish for. As an experienced caterer the food is... More

We stayed at Le Tournesol for three nights in September, and couldn't have been more delighted with our choice of chambres d'hôtes. Le Tournesol is a wonderful old building which has been beautifully restored, on a small square just beside the church in the heart of St Clar with ample parking, and on arrival we were warmly welcomed by our...

My husband and I stayed with Christine for six nights and had a wonderful time. Everything was perfect - from the gorgeous homemade meals, the aperitifs in the courtyard, the cleanliness everywhere, to the comfy beds and nicely appointed bedrooms. Chris is a font of all knowledge with regards to the area and is a wonderful host. We will return!

Went to Europe and decided to hop across to the Gers. We wanted to find somewhere relaxed and be able to explore places like Carcassonne, Narbonne and the coast and still be able to see towns like Lectoure, Auch and Condom, so we choose Saint-Clar as our base. Looked at a couple of B&B's and opted for "Le Tournesol". Wonderful... More

Travelling in france off the beaten track can be daunting for American visitors especially with finding quality accomodation - buit it needn't be; Le Tournesol is a real gem. St Clar is lovely little place amid this landscape of hilltop villages and small towns. Lovely, clean, light, well appointed room with modern bathroom in a characterful house close to the... More

Took trip advisor advice and booked in as we wanted to explore Gascony. What a find! Christine is a most gracious host and full of ideas on area. St Clar is a perfectly unspoiled village from which it is easy to explore true Gascony and the Armagnac region. The rooms are large and perfectly well maintained. We arrived tired and... More

Le Tournesol was a lovely place to stay as a base for our exploration of southwest France. It is located in St. Clar in the Gers region which is amazingly beautiful. Our room was very clean and well appointed with a great bathroom. Christine and David were very helpful and our breakfasts were perfect. We had an excellent dinner on... More
