Property description

Live a bit of French hiistory and stay at Le Belvedere, an historic listed and renovated stone manor house in the centre of Bléré surrounded by a beautiful park. This three-story French home was built in the 1800s.
Dominique and Jean-Renaud, a former air-hostess and airline pilot, will be happy to accomodate you in one of the 3 renovated rooms. They moved back to the family house after a busy life in Paris and travelling worldwide. Their welcome is kind and courteous, and they are antiques collectors, as reflected in the excellent decor of their 1800s fully restored Castel (small chateau). A delicious continental style breakfast is included in the room rate and served under a charming arbour or in the main dining room. Homemade jams and yogurts, fresh fruits and the best croissants of the Loire - what a way to begin a day of Chateaux visiting!There are no cooking facilities in the rooms, however tea/coffee making facilities are provided.

Dominique, prominent member of the Tourist Office of Blere, can guide you towards the many famous points of interest not to be missed and other secret places.She speaks English and offers you an additional free service of helping you with your visits.

Jean-Renaud still flies vintage aircrafts and has his own aircraft as well.
A hot air balloon flight can easily be organised. There are several balloon companies in the area.

Heated public swimming pool in the village: 10 minutes walk

Gourmet restaurants line the center square of Blere, a two minute walk from Le Belvedere, 'your home away from home'. Wine tasting is a major part of life in the Loire, with the Chinon, Vouvray, Montlouis, Sancerre, and more regions surrounding Blere.Goat cheeses are famous and gorgious in this area. Antiquing amongst the local Vide Greniers - Attic Emptying - sales and exclusive shops in the area is not to be missed.

Step back in time with elegant living in Le Belvedere amongst the Chateaux in the Heart of the Loire Valley.3 double rooms, decorated with antiques are waiting for you.

All rooms with en-suite bathrooms. One room with private entrance, refrigerator and microwave.
Free parking is available just nearby and sometimes in the courtyard.
Arrival times are between 5 and 7pm, we are not available for check in or baggage drop-off between 12 and 4.30pm, except by prior arrangement.

Access by car from Paris: A10, exit 18 A85 exit 11 from Normandy & Britanny or high speed train ( TGV ) from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport or by air ( Ryanair) are easy. You must rent a car to visit the numerous tourist features of the Loire Valley and many of our guests find it easier to travel to the Loire Valley by train and hire a car at Saint Pierre des Corps train station - book ahead!
