Property as described. Apartment was hot, but in view of the weather that week (37/39 degrees) this was to be expected. M. Durlot provided a fan, which was extremely welcome. The position of the property couldn't have been better - overlooking the market square, with several restaurants, cafés and baker's within easy reach. Beautiful, historical property. We enjoyed our stay very much - would like to go again, hopefully when the weather was cooler!
A wonderful week in the Dordogne
We had an excellent week in this apartment. M Durlot gave us a warm welcome on arrival and was very helpful with local information. The location was perfect overlooking the market place. Nearby parking was an advantage. The tour of the Troglodyte caves was fascinating, and there was so much history in the surrounding buildings. Belves itself seemed a bit ‘tired’ and there seemed to be quite a few empty shops and buildings but it was a great place to stay.
The apartment itself was spacious and well equipped and we enjoyed being in the centre of the village. Our one negative is that the local rugby team had a lot to celebrate and their party went on until 3 am on our last night, restarting at 6am, however I'm sure this was a one-off!
There is lots to see nearby and the whole of the Dordogne area is stunning.
HISTORY TO LIVE IN
We had a very warm welcome from Yves et Marie-Françoise Durlot. Gave us some history of the place and where to do shopping. Yves gave me a tour map of the places close by that he thinks we should see. They were very nice and well worth the time. This is a place of Mid-evil history not to be missed.
Great location, lovely hosts and felt like home
When we located this rental which was a very short walk from the free public parking lot, we were pleasantly surprised by its superb location..right on the square in Belves. Our hosts warmly greeted us and promptly showed us the property with its spacious living room and 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and nice kitchen. Only a few easy steps up to our apartment. We enjoyed 5 nights in Belves and around. Belves was a hidden jewel..so much history and it is a Beaux Village.so why only 4 stars.not 5? I want to give 4.5 actually only because I felt the bath towels could be a lot better. They were missing matched and coarse. Also the bed pillows could have been a bit better. And having to pay 10Euros per day if we wanted heat seemed a bit much. But overall an almost 5 star experience.
Comfortable, Central Location
We greatly enjoyed staying in the middle of Belves. Our apartment was roomy and comfortable with a splendid view of the market square. Many thanks to our hosts for their friendly welcome. Excellent ice cream at the Pourquoi Pas downstairs.
Belves is a lovely village to base your travels. The apartment was great, comfortable and convenient. The owners who live next door are so accommodating and helpful. I would recommend this apartment!
