Tournesol Chambre d' Hote
Celia & Tony would like to welcome you to Tournesol, our Chambre d'Hote located in the rural hamlet of La Rallerie near to the town of Gouex which nestles in the heart of the Vienne valley.
The house has recently been lovingly restored to its former glory, incorporating the original fireplace and exposed beams, parquet flooring and tiled floors. Combined with lovely gardens and water features in abundance, this makes a most enjoyable and relaxing atmosphere. The Chambre d' Hote offers two delightful en-suite rooms, one a double and the other a family room, both with full tea & coffee making facilities. The main reception opens into the guests' own private courtyard garden with a magnolia tree central to the comfortable garden furniture.
Extra facilities available to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible include internet, a microwave, fridge, private onsite parking, and bicycles and fishing equipment for your use. Tournesol is located in the small hamlet of La Rallerie in the lovely Vienne Valley, a two minute walk from the picturesque River La Vienne and excellent coarse fishing.
The Vienne River has a plentiful supply of bream, carp, catfish, perch, roach, pike and sondre pike/perch. Lake Persac is stocked with carp and only ten minutes away. Packed lunches are available on request and a fishing licence can be arranged. You can also walk or cycle alongside the river to the next village (5 km), which has a riverside park with swimming and picnic areas, or go Bungy jumping at the famous viaduct in l'Isle Jourdain.
The whole region is overflowing with historic towns and cities. The Marais Poitevin is a network of waterways with beautiful, tranquil scenery where you can hire boats for the day. Cognac country, the Thouet, Gartempe and Angun valleys and the lovely town of Montmorillon are other places worth visiting. The Circuit du Val de Vienne, Le Vigeant, is a motor racing track in Le Vigeant, 15 minutes away. Limoges, famous for its porcelain, is about 80 minutes South of here.
The Atlantic coast, beaches and water sports at La Rochelle and the off shore islands of Ré and Oléron, Royan and Rochefort are all about 90 minutes away.
