“Family holy”
Reviewed 23 September 2019 for a stay in August 2019

What a fantastic place, the owns Caroline & Darren have really thought of everything.
The place was immaculate, gite, garden & the pool.
The gite was so well equipped, loads of crockery, cooking utensils, quality bedding, towels etc. The pool even had a great selection of inflatable toys.
There was so much space inside & out, even with the 12 in our party
Unfortunately we broke down on the way, Caroline & Darren we’re amazing looking after our family members in our absence. Once we arrived, they even took us to get a hire car. Such genuine kindness.
The local area has loads to do too, all within a short drive. Again Caroline & Darren shared their local knowledge helping us to make the best of our time there.
Definitely recommend this place....we will most certainly be going back.

“Absolutely fabulous place to stay in the Deux sevre ... highly recommended”
Reviewed 8 July 2019 for a stay in July 2019

Caroline and Darren deserve to succeed in their venture the grande Maison Des Tournesols. Their attention to detail leaves you wanting nothing. The whole place is impeccable ... with a private pool too. The location is perfect for touring the area, cycling, walking, or driving. Lots of restaurants around. Perfect place to sample French way of life. Excellent.

“Heatwave Haven”
Reviewed 3 July 2019 for a stay in June 2019

My family stayed at La Grande Maison during the recent heatwave in France and couldn't have wished for anywhere better to spend lazy days by the pool. The accommodation is perfect with a fantastic kitchen and plenty of space. All the rooms are well equipped and spotlessly clean. This is a good base for day trips if you can bear to leave the pool. Caroline and Darren are wonderful hosts who were attentive yet left us to enjoy the house and garden as we pleased. They even brought us eggs from their hens. Will definitely be returning.

“Simply the Best”
Reviewed 21 September 2018 for a stay in July 2018

What a beautiful setting for an outstanding holiday. The accommodation was excellent with all our needs catered for. You are both wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. Great recommendations for days out and Darren’s cooking was faultless.

Simply the best property we have ever stayed in.
