I have lost count of how many times we’ve visited this beautiful place but we return each year and have a fabulous family holiday.
I’ve left quite a few reviews and have always rated the property at 5 stars.
There’s not much else I can add the all my previous reviews except to say that having spent a week here at half term we are returning for a week in August. Twice in one year, I can’t believe our luck.
Thank you Steve and Harry for yet another great stay, looking forward to seeing you again in August.
We have visited Belle Etoile before in 2014 during the summer. This year we decided to visit in October for a week during half term. The house is immaculate and home from home. As soon as you arrive and your car tyres crunch onto the large gravel parking area, you begin to relax. Opening the door to the country style kitchen continues the process. The house has a comfy lounge and well equipped kitchen with everything you will need for the family. The furnishings throughout are stylish and you soon feel that your holiday has begun, yet you feel like you are at home.
The bedrooms had very comfy beds, with one super king and plenty of space for large families. There is even more accommodation on the second floor, which we did not need to use. We also booked the Garden Room, which is freshly furnished with a double bed and an ensuite with wet room style shower.
For October, we were not expecting much from the weather, but we were blessed with three days of full sunshine🌞 with temperatures up to 25*C. The pool was still running and by 4:00pm both our boys were in for a swim (braver than me!) When the weather is less suitable for swimming, the games room is ideal for the whole family to get together and have fun trying out pool, darts, table football and table tennis. A great replacement for the kids sitting staring at screens!
This area is quiet, relaxing and when sitting outside with a large glass of wine watching the sun create some of the best sunsets, cooking on the fire pit and listening to the French tree frogs in the pomegranate trees, there is nowhere better.
The local area hosts many quaint villages including Ronsenac, Villebois-Lavalette, Brantome, and if you need a town you are only 30 minutes from Angouleme. There is also a well stocked Super U a few minutes drive in Villebois-Lavalette.
I recommend Belle Etoile and will be booking for 2018.
