Make a holiday rental gite or villa in Belves, France your home away from home

Belves is a beautiful medieval city standing above the Nauze Valley in the Dordogne. The skyline of Belves is dominated by seven belfries, although the whole village has an undeniably medieval charm.

Things to do in Belves, France

Walking through the old town of Belves is a real joy. The Tour de l’Auditeur is encircled by ancient ramparts, creating a fortified centre, home to some of the most impressive monuments in Belves including the Hotel Bontemps and the Place d’Armes which acts as the market square on a Saturday morning. The Trglodytic Caves of Belves make for essential viewing on any Belves holiday, with excellent guided tours easily arranged.

The forested sides of the Nauze Valley and the surrounding Perigord Noir countryside will certainly endear any visitor to an apartment in Belves. The countryside is absolutely stunning and fantastically quiet throughout the year, offering the perfect terrain for hiking, horse riding and mountain biking. Mountain biking is hugely popular in and around Belves, with many mountain biking competitions arranged all year round. The many golf courses and fishing rivers of the Dordogne are never far from a holiday rental gite in Belves either.

During the summer months, visitors are treated extra-specially well. There are guided tours of Belves every Tuesday morning, local farmer’s markets (where you can taste local fois gras and truffle) on Wednesday evenings and daily tours of the Troglodytic Caves. One of the best times to be staying in Belves accommodation is during the first weeks of August when the Belves Medieval Festival springs into life, reverting the whole town to a less familiar time, celebrating all things 15th century. The streets are awash with falconers, jugglers and street performers during the festival, which is very hard to resist getting involved with. The annual Belves Air Show in August always draws a large crowd too, providing an excellent family day out.

Places to visit on holiday in Belves, France

A holiday rental property in Belves is just 25km from Sarlat, the Dordogne’s most famous town. The combination of medieval and renaissance architecture blends together perfectly to create a picture-perfect scene, and as a central town in Perigord Noir, it is also the ideal spot for a special evening meal or a days shopping. Golfers staying in a Belves villa wishing to play golf will also get to know Sarlat well.

Weather in Belves, France

The mild climate of the Dordogne blesses Belves with year round conditions that help keep tourists flocking to the town. During the summer months, daily temperatures usually reach into the high 20’s (˚C), whilst the winter months are wonderfully mild, with temperatures of less than 10˚C rare.

Simply Perfect!

5 of 5
Great holiday property, a (very) short walk from the shops, restaurants and Sunday Market in St-Cyprien. Well furnished throughout, and kept in very good order and very clean. We hope to return soon! Thank you! Nick and Nina

Beautiful! Well-maintained and well-equipped

5 of 5
We had the most wonderful holiday back in June. From the pictures, we were expecting the property and grounds to be lovely (and had spent a long time searching for a holiday property) but it was even better than we imagined. We had a very warm welcome from Dave, Katie and the children (complete with wine and nibbles) and felt immediately at home. There was everything we needed for a relaxing holiday and, importantly for us, the property had everything we needed to keep a toddler safe and well looked after: stair gates around the terrace, a highchair and a very sweet children's bedroom with a travel cot. Our daughter absolutely loved running around the gardens, feeding the chickens and having a miniature tractor ride with the children and ducks! The surrounding area had plenty to offer - lots to see and do. This is clearly a property that has been very thoughtfully and carefully renovated and maintained and having such friendly and helpful hosts (and playmates for our daughter!) was a real bonus. We will definitely be returning!

Perfect hosts, perfect holiday

5 of 5
We chose the Butterfly Cottage for a relaxing break after a busy year getting married and moving house. We couldn't have made a better choice. Linda and George's (and Roosevelt's!) hospitality was second to none - they were integral to ensuring our stay was as enjoyable as possible. As we're keen bikers, the weather during the week was perfect - sunny and around 24 degrees and we managed to clock up over 160km during the course of our holiday. The bike rides themselves were fantastic thanks to George who plotted the routes using his local knowledge of the area. We can particularly recommend the ride which took us past a number of beautiful chateaus. The pool and jacuzzi were perfect for unwinding after a long day on the bikes - and the heated pool is a real luxury in mid September! Another highlight of the week was Dmitri, the local chef who came to cook for us one evening. We both agree that it was the best meal we've ever had (and that's including Michelin starred restaurants!) - my soufflé and scallop starter was delicious, and the apple tart dessert simply divine! Dmitri is a must for anyone staying at the Butterfly Cottage - you won't regret it! We can't wait to return in the near future. Sophie & Doug
