“Fantastic Venue for 2 Families Staying in One House”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from a lovely week staying at Maison Des Tournesol. The house is perfect for 2 families to share. We had 4 adults and 6 children and did not feel cramped at any point of the holiday. The pool was lovely and with the safety cover the children could run happily around in the evening. Carol and Tim are the perfect hosts - there but not there!! It was lovely to have someone who could recommend restaurants or markets and the containers of homegrown cherry tomatoes was a huge hit with the children. On our arrival we were thrilled to find bread, butter, eggs beer and wine in the fridge and this gesture started the holiday perfectly. The road outside is busy, but with huge lockable gates we were happy the children were all contained and safe. I would definitely recommend Maison des Tournesol and considering returning next year.

We are so please you enjoyed your stay at Maison des Tournesols and enjoyed the welcome pack on arrival. The pool is lovely and it is great having the safety cover for the children - it makes everyone feel more relaxed with less to worry about. The fences and gates as you say provide a safe haven for the children to run around and play. Tim and Carol grow a lot of veggies - so depending when you are there will determine what goodies you will receive!!! You will be welcome any time - thank you for such a wonderful review.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves and were able to visit some of the lovely villages in the area, it is certainly an undiscovered part of France. It does make a change in France where you will find many attractions, etc. free - even the parking at the seaside is free - a refreshing change. The children must have become water babies and it is good the weather picked up to the 30s - we normally have great weather in the region - so great you could feel some of it!! Thank you once again it is much appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and as you say the house is very spacious with lots of room for 2 families. The Owners, I know are very helpful, but only if you want help, etc., but it is always handy to have someone with local knowledge. The region has lots of history and lots to see - thank you once again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. we are so pleased you found the property clean and felt welcomed. As you say this area is great for biking and there is a lot to see on traffic free roads, if you can draw yourself away from the pool and gardens that it!! - we look forward to seeing you next year and will guide you in the right direction for some fabulous chateaux
