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.

Golfers staying in a Belves villa wishing to play golf will also get to know Sarlat well.

Should Have Booked For Longer

5 of 5
Spent a week at Mulberry Tree Villa and should have booked for longer. We were met with a friendly and warm welcome from Linda and George. We traveled with parents and teenage children. The villa was very clean, spacious and perfect for our stay.The little extras Linda provides are so thoughtful, fresh eggs, milk, coffee, orange juice, wines, toiletries, and even bathrobes for every one. Linda tries to think of everything and goes above and beyond to try and make your stay perfect. The pool was a perfect way to cool off and relax after a day out sightseeing, and the views are so relaxing and beautiful. Plenty of room inside and out, with two very large patios for everyone to relax, plus a beautiful garden with lots of swings and benches to relax and read a good book. We could not have asked for a better centrally located place to enjoy the Dordogne, everything is literally minutes away. Looking forward to hopefully returning for a longer stay!

Truly Amazing !

5 of 5
Located in an unspoilt village in the Dordogne, with gorgeous panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The Butterfly cottage is equipped with everything you could ever need. The owners came and greeted us and were continuously checking whether there was anything more they could do for us when we ran into them. If nothing else, stay in the cottage for the bed alone. It is one of the best nights sleep my husband and I have ever had vacationing! The location is perfect if you want a quiet, peaceful base from which to explore the rest of the Dordogne. We visited local villages and attractions, as well as going on local walks and hikes. We would also recommend Dimitri, the most amazing French Chef. The meal he prepared for us was absolutely superb, one of the great highlights of our trip. We can not say enough great things about the Butterfly Cottage that have not already been said by the many other great reviews! Truly amazing what Linda and George have created.
