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

We stayed overnight at Le Tournesol and have to say it is probably the best B&B we have ever stayed in. The rooms were fantastic, well appointed and so comfortable. The added touches for small children (baby bath and step for using the loo and sink) we have never come across in a B&B before, and, we felt, typifies the... More

We experienced Le Tournesol to be a high quality B&B, with Christine and David as excellent hosts. The nicely renovated building situated right in the centre of St. Clar, a very French village, offers light and pleasant rooms. Well furneshed and with oustanding queensize beds. A nice breakfast is served while dinner cooked by Christine is a treat in itself.... More
