Reviews

« We had a wonderful stay at La Tour de Saint-Clar, Kim is a lovely host and went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed and to give us information on the local area, she is a very helpful and kind person. The gite itself is wonderfully situated for a relaxing holiday, with excellent views throughout of the rolling Gascon countryside from the large windows of the pigeonnaire. It is tastefully decorated to a high standard, with every amenity catered for and more besides with an excellent variety of technology including a bose soundsystem with bluetooth so you can listen to your music on your smartphone and also chromecast & apple tv in case you fancy a film night (we had one with an excellent pizza from the local pizzeria in st clar!). The pool is fantastic with good quality loungers & there’s also a table tennis table and volleyball net in case you’re feeling more active. The area is great for walking, and we had numerous walks around the lanes and local villages which was both interesting and scenic. Anyway, thank you Kim for a great holiday, we loved our stay and also enjoyed the company of Regis the cat when he popped around! »  James and Katy, North Wales

« It was one of the most memorable vacations we had. From the incredible hosts, Kim and Chris, to the wonderful surroundings as well as the impeccable and beautifully appointed quarters, nothing could have been better. We do plan to go back. »  G & R Daichman

« Bliss in South West France. This August we rented La Tour de Saint-Clar for a week and were thrilled with our choice. The Gers area has many of these small towers dotted around and Kim and Chris the lovely Australian owners have converted this one into accommodation. A spiral staircase links the three levels the top of which has 3 single beds and would suit children only as these lodgers would have to share the bathroom off the main bedroom on the 2nd level. The swimming pool a few steps from our front door was divine. Sometimes this is shared with the family but this is not a problem as there is plenty of room. The pastoral views from the kitchen/living area are divine and include the spires of the local St Clar village. Kim and Chris were warm hosts and happily shared their local knowledge to ensure our stay was enhanced. Thanks for a great holiday and we will definitely be back! »  Jules and Neil Pattison - Auckland, New Zealand

« As we drove to your property through stunning countryside and great little village of Saint-Clar we knew we were not going to be disappointed. The accommodation was stunning - beautifully and stylishly restored - and the attic room was perfect for our three children who loved it. Views from the kitchen-diner were wonderful and the pool was used daily, even on slightly cooler days! Kim, Chris and the children were great hosts and supplied any information required immediately. We enjoyed trips to local villages and markets and had a truely memorable and enjoyable week. Thank you. »  Emma Macvean - UK

« We stayed here for a week in July and this was a really lovely property. The views over the countryside are really spectacular. Very close to a nice little town with everything that you need. The owners were really helpful and very hospitable. We would recommend. »  Maria and Family - Ireland

« We had a most enjoyable time at your property and found the owners very hospitable and welcoming, we will certainly return sometime soon. »  Ms. Naish
