Our current guests were setting up the BBQ  last night when they spotted a wild boar trotting down the chemin. We have been here over 6 years and never seen one so we’re very envious!

Our last guests departed today and we are very pleased to say that we have had a simply fabulous first summer season at Le Tournesol. We have had some fantastic comments in our visitors book which are replicated on our guestbook page.

We have met wonderful people, made good friends and have lovely memories, often created over a glass or two of local vino!

We hope to welcome at least some of you back next year, meanwhile the gite is open all year for anyone who fancies an autumn or winter break!

Harvesting the sunflowers begins in the field next to the gite.

Our guests very kindly volunteered to help us move the huge pile of logs just delivered. At least they were rewarded with a beer or two and our heartfelt thanks!

Our gorgeous 20 month old working cocker - Poppy - continues to befriend our guests and delights in saying hello to them each day. She is also hoping someone might just throw the ball for her!

The garden is looking lovely - poppies in abundance by the pool and the lavender hedge on the terrace is being much enjoyed by bees and butterflies - wonderful!

Our very first guests arrive from Gloucestershire in this beautiful Austin Healey - it looks very well outside the gite!
