Jess and Andrew (pictured here long before children and responsibilities came along) bought this house in 2014 and we have been renovating and restoring it since then. It has become a wonderful oasis for our family from our home in Brighton.

Very friendly people ready to help any how.
Property is exactly what shows on line and the garden is great. Thanks again for the great help you gave us in those extremely difficult times. We'll keep in touch.
We had the most idyllic stay at Bellevue. Andrew and Jess couldn't have been more welcoming and the house has everything we needed with some lovely extra touches like a bottle of champagne on arrival. The garden is an oasis of calm and space with fabulous views across the rolling hills, and a feeling of complete privacy. The pool was surprisingly warm for May, especially since the weather has been cooler than usual. All in all, a perfect holiday.
We really enjoyed our week in this cottage. It is very well equipped and comfortable to stay in. The owner Andrew is very friendly and responds quickly to any enquiry. It’s very private and well located near some lovely villages. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a character cottage with a lovely pool in a private and rural environment.
Thanks, Elizabeth, it was certainly an eventful week! Glad you all enjoyed it, you are welcome anytime. Andrew
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at this lovely house. It's modern enough to have everything you might need whilst still retaining it's rustic charm. We were very lucky with the weather and basically spent 2 weeks sunning ourselves by the pool, so didn't have much need for anything other than a reasonable supermarket, which the town has. The rest of the town was very quiet, I don't know if that was just because it was August or if there is generally not a lot going on but the are lots of other towns not too far away which have more restaurants and bigger supermarkets if that's more your thing. The house is clean and well looked after and was perfect for our family (2 adults, 2 children, 1 dog) but the living areas may have been a bit cosy for bigger families. However the bedroom with the extra bed is a good size.
The garden is fantastic for both children and dogs. On the few occasions the kids dragged themselves out of the pool they had great fun running around the huge garden and using the trampoline. The dog also loved it, the garden is enclosed so she was able to roam freely while we enjoyed the sun. The garden offers plenty of shade as well as sunny spots, the hammock was a particular favourite for an afternoon nap. The pool was checked on a couple of times during our stay by the couple who look after the property locally.
We used the vet in the town (Champavet) for the dog's worming treatment and pre-travel checks before returning home. We booked an appointment via email before our holiday and the staff were all pleasant and helpful and spoke pretty good English. The vet we saw, Sebastian Guillot, was great. We have never travelled with a dog before so I was a bit unsure about what exactly needed doing during the appointment, but he had clearly done it many times and there were no problems.
The owner, Andrew, was very helpful both before and during our stay. Overall this is a great property.
Thanks Clare, it was a pleasure having you as guests!
Fantastic gite and the garden and pool were perfect. Weather a bit mixed but still had a great time.
The property was first class and in a great position for exploring the area. The pool area being slightly lower than the garden creates a great sun trap (when it shone lol) and the overall gite was first class.
Brilliant family holiday
We have recently returned from a two week stay at Bellevue and we had a wonderful time. We are a family of five (10,6 and 3). The house is very well equipped and comfortable making it easy to relax. We went on plenty of walks locally and enjoyed the surrounding areas. The book in the property makes some great suggestions and we recommend using it. Even on wet days the children still made use of the pool and the large garden. There are plenty of games to keep all ages occupied. This really is a beautiful place to be. I miss my morning coffee on the patio looking out over the fields, my children want to live there !!
The owner was happy to answer my many many questions and was easily contactable the whole time (if we needed them). We had a brilliant holiday and have made some wonderful memories.
Thanks Carly, it was a pleasure dealing with you!
