The Pool Cottage is one of the stunning residences belonging to Chateau Tournesol, a 17th Century castle situated in the beautiful region of Gascony. 

Sleeping up to 8 guests and enjoying lovely gardens, private access and parking, as well as a shared pool, the property is perfect for a family seeking for a peaceful getaway.

The whole estate has been lovingly restored by its owners with all the amenities one needs, let's just say it's fit for a king!

Set amongst sunflower fields, the atmosphere couldn't be more tranquil and relaxing, as if you were in an another world.

The location in the centre of a historical region, only 10km from Nerac, is simply wonderful and one can even visit the castle of King Henri IV of Navarre.

There are also several activities available for you at the castle! See our "Location" Tab for more details!

Note: you will have access to the Pool Cottage amenities and to the shared pool only. Other guests may be staying in the main chateau. You may choose to rent our Pool Cottage together with the Cedar Cottage, or alternatively to rent the entire Chateau Tournesol estate, which would include both cottages, the Chateau, and all of the estate's facilities for your group only. Please contact us for further details.

What you should know…

  • The swimming pool is shared with guests staying at neighbouring Chateau Tournesol Cedar Cottage... but this is an advantage for larger groups willing to travel together and rent both properties!

    In the heart of nature and vineyards, this little restored house is full of calm and charm. The location allowed us to escape the chaos of everyday life and indulge in the wines of the region.
