Le Tournesol Chambers d'Hotes
Le Tournesol is a charming Bed and Breakfast. This beautiful old stone village house is situated in the heart of Saint Clar, the white garlic capital of France and next to the famous pilgrim walk Le Chemin de Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.
We have three beautiful bedrooms, all completely renovated in classic French country house style. All beds are high quality, featuring generously sized divans. Each has its own private bathroom and beautiful views over the village.
Saint Clar is a picturesque village in the department of the Gers, affectionately known as the French Tuscany, only an hour’s drive from Toulouse airport, plus a brilliant stop off for Spain. The Gers is famous for its Armagnac, duck confit, melons and of course garlic. This is reflected in the regions exquisite dishes and rolling countryside.
Lomagne white garlic, a speciality of Saint-Clar, is celebrated every year at the Thursday morning market (on the stalls from July to December), and at the Garlic Festival and Garlic Contest that take place in August.
The fortified village has the particularity of featuring two squares with arcades. Place de la Mairie, in the middle of which stands a picturesque 13th-century covered market hall, and Place de la République, to the north of which the neo-gothic Church of St. Clair has the pride of place.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
