A perfect choice!

  • 5 of 5

Although the dead of winter is perhaps not the ideal period for visiting the Dordogne, we made the fortunate decision to use Belves as our base for our week in the area last January. But even more fortunate was our choice to stay in the Durlot's apartment. Not only was it completely and comfortably furnished with our windows overlooking the ancient covered market of the town's central square, but Marie Francoise and Yves themselves couldn't have been more welcoming. From the wicker basket laden with everything we needed for supper when we arrived late on a Sunday evening after the long drive down from Paris, to precious advice on what, where and when to plan our days, to a last evening drink together in front of a

blazing fireplace in their lovely home, they couldn't have been more hospitable.

If you have the great good fortune to spend time in the Dordogne which even in

winter is a thrill, may you be as lucky as we were in having chosen so successful and indeed charming a place to call home while there.

Lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a super week. Staying in the apartment was 'perfect' for us. It was clean, very near to all the town's amenities , and well kitted out with everything we could want. The bed was very comfortable, and the only outside noise we experienced was on Friday evening, but it all went quiet after about 10.30 pm. The lady who showed us in was very helpful, and we would love to stay again if we are in that area.

Fantastic apartment overlooking the town square

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this apartment. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. Each bedroom had it's own private bathroom, which is a convenient feature when traveling with other people. It is outfitted with all the comforts - full kitchen, including dishwasher, washing machine and full size fridge. We were able to prepare several meals and unwind together around the table.

It was so wonderful to be able to walk right out into the square and walk around the village. We also spent time seeing a few caves in the area. Plenty of things to see in the surrounding villages as well.

We know we want to return in the future for a longer stay!

Utterly charming, full of history

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for better hosts. Yves & Marie-Franciois were extremely friendly, very knowledgeable and every bit of advice they gave us was the best. English was not a problem. The apartment is extremely spacious, very comfortable and even though not ultra modern, offers everything one could need. Who would want modern anyway while trying to soak in the atmosphere of the 14th century? The windows overlook the main square, which you may think would be noisy but it wasn't at all. We had some of our best night sleeps during our stay in Belves, maybe due to the comfortable mattress. 😊 Staying in Belves was the perfect choice to visit the area. So many of the neighboring, popular villages are extremely touristy and crowded. Belves was a real place, utterly charming, full of history with several good restaurants, cafés and markets. We would return & stay in this apartment again in a heartbeat, if we didn't live so far away. Thanks again Yves & Marie-Francois!

Apartment in Belvès

  • 5 of 5

The Durlots—proprietors of the apartment in the "Castrum" of Belvès—were exceptionally welcoming and gracious. The apartment itself is charming, spacious, and located very centrally, with terraces overlooking the village's central market square. The rooms are large and comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped, and all the necessary conveniences provided. Thank you! Definitely recommended.

We had a wonderful relaxing stay in Belves, the apartment was just what we wanted clean, comfortable and being in the main town square we had an unrivalled view of the Soir Marché on wednesday night and the Farmers market on saturday.

The hosts Monsieur and Madame Durlot were very charming, welcoming and helpful. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week here, we would book this apartment again.
