The perfect base to discover the beautiful area. House hunting or cycle/walking paths, an unspoilt beautiful area with sunflowers. Clean, friendly and fabulous breakfasts. The village has bakeries, shop, restaurants, pharmacy.
We had a lovely stay at Le Tournesol. The B&B was charming, fully kitted and very clean. Christine was extremely helpful, responsive and a great host. We would definitely recommend this accommodation to friends wanting to visit the area.
We travel to France at least twice a year and our favorite destination is the Gers, in Gascony. Le Tournesol is our favorite B&B in all of the region and frankly, all of France. Christine, the host is ever so gracious, welcoming and most helpful with points of interest and great ideas on how to spend the day. She made us feel so welcome and respected our privacy. The rooms are romantic, very clean, uncluttered and extremely comfortable. Actually, the best beds we slept on during a 4 month trip through 11 countries in Europe! With the original beautiful exposed stone work throughout the house, you get a real sense of history in this house, including an original stone sink in one of the 3 grand rooms, I believe to be 1000 years old! The bathrooms are spacious, clean and offer plenty of hot water, with modern fittings. The inclusive breakfast is more substantial than most Inns offer with fresh local breads and pastries which Chris purchases each morning from the local baker. Don't miss an evening meal option, her culinary skills are to die for and include locally sourced products and wine! Duck, foie gras, cassoulet and other regional dishes were some of our favorite meals anywhere, and prepared perfectly here in this romantic B&B by Chez Christine. Le Tournesol is well positioned in the village, across the way from the church. Don't miss this romantic gem!…
We stayed with Christine for four nights while attending a wedding nearby and had a wonderful time. The B&B is clean, comfortable, and well-located in the quaint town of St Clar. Christine went out of her way to welcome us when we arrived (even though our flight was delayed and we didn’t get in until gone 1am!) and was so helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Breakfast was a highlight: delicious fresh fruit and pastries straight from the bakery, and Christine was always on-hand to provide suggestions of things to do in the wider area. We’d really recommend a stay in this lovely B&B.
Le Tournesol is a real retreat nestled in the beautiful village of Saint Clar. Christine is warm and friendly and is dedicated to making your stay totally memorable. Her beautiful house is clean and really comfortable with all the extra touches you could imagine, including the garden of your dreams! She's there when you need her (and is an expert in all things local) but gives you space also. We'll definitely be back and be recommending this one to friends - such an interesting and restful stay, thanks to Chris - your delicious breakfasts and comfy bed :)
