Reviews

Feedback from previous guests

We have spent 2 weeks in the gite and have had the best family holiday ever. The gite is just fantastic, home to all of us and even better with such great views and surroundings. Richard and Meryl have through to everything to make all the family feel extremely welcome.
We recommend a good, relaxing bike ride along the canal at Moissac, Park Walibi in Agen and Agen centre. A must is the crazy golf at Chateau Stelsia - such a beautiful place and a fantastic game of golf for everyone.
Our girls have learnt to swim and do front and back flips in the pool. An unforgettable memory for us all - along with fun packed hours of monopoly!
Thank you Meryl and Richard for everything. Also thank you Poppy for all the kisses and cuddles.




The gite is perfectly equipped, within a wonderful location with fantastic views. A completely restful and relaxing time, which is exactly what we wanted. The pool providing the ideal entertainment for the children, with the added bonus of Richard's net for competitive games of pool volleyball!!
Places to go -
Bourg de Visa - market on a Tuesday evening, Brasserie and local goat farm
Montage de Quercy - market on a Saturday morning
Bonaguil at Fumel - great castle (although lot of steps)
Le Boulve - local wine producers - free tasting and interesting tour
Richard and Meryl were fabulous hosts - very generous with they time and knowledge.
We really don't want to go home. So we have decided to squat!! Plus we have fallen in love with Poppy!
Thanks for everything.




What a wonderful place this is! The views, the sky (the skies!) and a lovingly prepared house. Meryl and Richard have thought of everything, from the best ever (it's official!) welcome goodies to proper cooking tools and much more. All in a beautifully presented house. And such lovely people (and Poppy) too.
Highlight 'touristy' thing to do this week: A 50km bike ride along the Canal des deux mers from the Canal over the Garonne (stunning) in Moissac to Valence d'Agen and back. Flat and shaded - all bike lanes - looking at the narrow boats passing sluices. A welcome slowdown from normal hectic pace.
Thank you so much Meryl and Richard, we will be back and recommend Le Tournesol very highly.




After a really warm welcome, this place feels just like home!
Meryl and Richard have been fantastic hosts, from the very first day arriving at the gite and making us coffee after a long drive, to taking us to the nearby night market to experience the real France.
The villa itself is beautiful and peaceful - couldn't ask for more, and we have loved our morning visits from Poppy!!
A highlight for us was a visit to Sarlat-la-Canéda - the centre is truly breathtaking. On the way back stopped for a drink at Beynac - you can see the château on the hill whilst having a coffee on the riverside, watching people canoe past!
We have loved it!! We will be back!




Richard and Meryl are the greatest hosts. Very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Love Poppy!
The Tournesol gite is home from home, comfortable, everything you would want is here. Location is stunning, great views. Loved our spot under the walnut tree.
Highlights - Monflanquin, Saint Cirq Lapopie, Auvillar and Condom - Bourg de Visa was a fantastic central hub for visiting all these places.
Thank you Meryl and Richard for a great holiday. And Poppy of course.




Thank you Meryl and Richard for a wonderful stay, including fireworks in the village, lovely sun and swims, amazing storm, beautiful scenery, charming villages and of course truly delightful and hospitable hosts. We can thoroughly recommend this stunning gite.
