“Lovely accommodation and great outdoor facilities. Shame about the deluge of flies!”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2016

The accommodation was really lovely - even nicer than we expected - in a lovely setting with a big garden, pool and lots of outdoor games and space for the children to run around safely. The host Michelle was lovely. The only problem really was the huge number of flies this summer that you couldn't escape inside and out. They would be on our face and head in the pool and even when we woke up in the morning. We had to spend a fair bit of money on sticky fly paper and swatters etc which really should have been provided which is why cleanliness only got 4 out of 5. We did ask but were told to get these products from the supermarket. We probably wouldn't go back as there isn't much to do in the immediate vicinity but if it's not a bad year for flies the gites would be a great place to just hang out and relax by the pool. There are 3 gites on site sharing the pool which isn't totally clear when you book. There are two 3 bedrooms ones and one larger 4 or 5 bedroom one I think. We were slightly alarmed to discover we were sharing with a family of 18 French people but fortunately they were absolutely lovely and we all got on well. The only other thing to mention is that we were asked the day before leaving if we wanted to pay 50 euros for cleaning or do it ourselves. This had not been mentioned previously and the possibility of being hit with an extra cost or having to spend a long time cleaning to a professional standard prior to getting our flight and with 3 small children in tow was a bit stressful. We checked with trip advisor/holiday lettings if this was legitimate which it wasn't unless we had been advised at the time of booking and we agreed we would leave it as we would expect to leave anywhere - relatively clean and tidy but not to a professional standard. Finally due to the exchange rate changing post brexit we lost £30 despite getting our full deposit back as it was paid in euros.

“Great accommodation; lovely host; good swimmingh pool”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2011

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”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2011

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”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2011

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!”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2011

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!
