Our first impressions on arriving at Tournesol were fantastic and we were even more impressed when inside. The whole building has been restored to a very high standard making for a comfortable, enjoyable and relaxing holiday 'home from home'. We found the whole experience lacking for nothing and with great support from the people looking after the property, we couldn't have wished for more. Spotlessly clean, beautifully presented with more than ample clean towels on hand throughout (and we are a big family). We loved the location too being nice a rural spot but within easy striking distance for places to go with the kids if needed. Our evenings were spent relaxing outside, glasses of wine, kids in the pool … heaven. An early morning 2 minute walk to the boulangerie for fresh croissants (and a supermarket only a 10 minute drive away through beautiful countryside) also makes for stress free stay especially with kids. In short, we would certainly recommend Tournesol as an idyllic location for your holiday whether you are looking for a comfortable place to stay and relax or to use as a base to explore the area and come 'home' to at the end of your day.
Tournesol will allow you to turn toward the sun (even if it rains)! We had eight people staying and all were extremely comfortable. We experienced the little village of Carloopa daily and some of it's locals, which welcomed us warmly. We went to a few of the markets and experienced their locals tastes, which we absolutely miss today! Our experience in Tournesol was wonderful. We used each room to its fullest, but the main room, while inside was the kitchen. It was a gathering place for dinners and experience. The location is wonderful, as it is close enough to experience so many of things, the sea, the small villages throughout the area, local wineries, castles, and the local markets. The only thing we had a problem with is our heads would bump the beams in the upper rooms and stairway...by the end of the week our bruised heads remembered to duck. Lovely experience and we are grateful for the experience. You cannot go wrong selecting Tournesol. PS: The rooster next door kept us on track each morning!
