Date du séjour : 15 AOUT 2015
A truly fabulous villa, which ticked all the boxes we wanted from a Holiday! We spent 2 very enjoyable weeks at Bellevue in August 2015, as two families of four, with children ranging from 7 to 16. The property is stunning and exceptionally appointed. The rooms are spacious, well laid out and provide everything you could want from a holiday villa. Just as the photos imply – the villa is very well designed and beautifully finished in all aspects. The kitchen is highly specified but still very functional for a large group/family, with a separate utility area. The living space was flexible, with 3 separate eating areas, 1 inside and 2 outside – depending on your requirement for sun/shade and the time of day. The shutter system allowed the house to stay cool, but ventilated and secure, with additional fans available in upstairs bedrooms. Outside, the pool is amazing, a really good size with pool lights, which allowed us to swim late into the night. The decking area was large and provided a fantastic space to laze by the pool on very comfortable loungers. The large double garage housed a table tennis table and was also fully stocked with bikes/ride on toys for younger children. Outside games were also available – badminton, boules and larger items such as a trampoline and slide, and the vast amount of land attached afforded the children plenty of space to play. The panorama from the front of the house over the Lot valley is breath taking – something you could definitely get very used to waking up to every morning. The local area also provided excellent facilities on your doorstep – Intermarche – a 5 minutes’ drive away and Boulangeries in both villages. Canoe/paddle boards were available for hire in both villages and a good high ropes course was only 10 minutes away. The Aubrac plateau was a 30 minute drive away and provided breath-taking scenery, as well as another high ropes course at one of the ski-stations. Overall, if you love France, enjoy the freedom self-catering offers and want privacy away from the masses to relax, then this is well worth considering. We could not fault the property, Veronique and Daniel could not have been more helpful and the surrounding countryside and villages are just beautiful. It definitely deserves its 5 star rating.
