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.

                                                                                                    We stumbled across this property while searching through the hundreds on various websites. We are a family of 5 and were looking for something a little bit different among the masses of pricey boutique properties let at a premium. This was perfect! My husband was keen to tell me it used to be owned by an artist! I already knew of Josephine Baker and delighted in telling him she was an 'Artiste' not an artist! We watched a few YouTubes about her life before coming which gave us some history of her life, and significance of the house, the Chateau and the region. The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 of which have a curtain to divide which was fine for the kids. One bedroom is downstairs which we used with an en-suite shower room. The lounge/kitchen/diner is spacious with TV/DVD/wifi. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the bins are down a road opposite the house and it was no issue to wander over or drop the bags off on our way out each day. All thinkable equipment is provided. Hairdryers in rooms too. Towels and linen are available to hire. The gardens are stunning with the historic round houses which once accommodated the guests of Josephine Baker for her performances at the Park opposite. The pool, although unheated, was perfectly ok to use and was refreshing to bomb in to cool off on hot days. Great pool security features with water motion sensor alarm. Phillippe is a lovely gentleman who can speak good enough English to explain everything about the house. He was always available if we needed anything at all. He has provided an extensive categorised collections of tourist information which was very useful for finding places to visit, restaurants and canoe hire places. (Canoe on the Dordogne is a must). The house is at the foot of the Chateau des Milandes (another must) which is a short walk up the drive and even shorter ride if you take a selection of the well maintained bikes that Phillippe also provides. The location of this property is perfect. Off the beaten tourist track but no more than about 15 minute drive to most places of interest. Caves, gardens, Sarlat, La Roque, Castelnaud and canoeing. You can do it all without travelling far at all. There are a couple of supermarkets nearby where prices are reasonable. Worth visiting and making good use of the great BBQ on the terrace. Already miss seeing the sunrise over the picturesque hills in the morning with coffee. We highly recommend this house and would love to return!
