"Great accommodation; lovely host; good swimmingh pool"

We had a lovely time at Les Tournesols. The accommodation was clean, appropriately furnished, well equipped kitchen .. with a nice welcome pack of milk, coffee and other bits and pieces. Barbeque. Good outdoor space. Takes the pressure off when arriving on a Saturday night! Swimming pool was great and the kids loved it. It was well looked after. Location is within an easy walk of the closest boulangerie (which did good patisserie) and a little co-op style supermarket which has most of what you need. There are good supermarkets in easy reach (but by car). Local restaurant very passable ... but good ones are also nearby. Lots to do in the area ... an absolute definite is the Puy du Fou ... and if you want to go to the Spectacle in the evening you MUST pre-book it ... it sells out weeks in advance ... you can do it online (although you have to take a leap of faith that the weather will be good). All of us had a great time.

"Great property"

Good sized property which was clean and tidy and suited our requirements perfectly travelling with young children and grandparents. The host was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The children loved the pool, tennis court, big garden and trampoline which were well looked after, safe and secure. Would certainly recommend to others.

"Excellent place to stay"

Les Tournesols is a lovely, very clean gite, with a heated swimming pool and full size tennis courts. Me and my family had a fantastic two weeks, and have already booked for next year. Dawn is a great host, with good local knowledge and always eager to help.

"We didn't want to leave!"

Clean, tidy, spacious property. Friendly host. Property within walking distance to local village where everyone we met was helpful and friendly. Spar shop that stocks practically everything you'd need (except Weetabix!!). Village restaurant good. Loved the pool at the property (fenced off so that small children cannot get in there on their own) and the fact that the children could play happily and safely within the large garden. Plenty of day trips and activities within easy drive. To be honest, we loved all of it and can't wait to go back there again!
