About Stephen Causton
We moved to France in 2006 to open a restaurant which we ran successfully for over ten years. After selling we spent a year renovating our Gite to the highest standard. We love living in Bellac and our two children are also French residents.
Stephen Causton purchased this House in 2016
Why Stephen Causton chose Bellac
We have the perfect situation here with a large town house on the edge of town but with a rural feel also. Bellac is a wonderful location for everything you need, travel wise, amenities, entertainment and relaxation, that's why we fell in love with it. During our time in France we have stayed in many Gites all over the country and have learnt much, that is why we believe our Gite is one of the most unique and best equipped that you will discover.

A wonderful gite with stunning views
Had a fantastic, relaxing time in this wonderful gite - thank you.
The accommodation was bigger than we expected, is very traditional, yet has all the mod cons you need. The beds were clean and comfortable, and the showers fantastic, with plenty of hot water. The highlight has to be the amazing views across the town / river; we loved sitting on the balcony with our cheese and wine, taking it all in - just perfect.
Steve and Sue were lovely - there if we needed them, but not intrusive in any way. Gave us lots of hints and tips on the best places to visit etc., and were really accommodating when we asked if we could stay on an extra couple of hours past check out time.
Can't wait to come back next year!
Thank you for your kind review we do our best to make your visit the best possible. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit
Bellac is beautiful! Steve and Sue met us on our arrival and showed us around , unbelievable views ! Lovely garden, nice and quite, you can hear a pin drop at night.The property itself is spacious, with the balcony the perfect place to sit in the morning for breakfast looking at the views!
A week in Bellac
The property is full of character with great views across the valley from the back windows. It is very well equipped and charmingly furnished, and parking was easy. Sue and Steve were welcoming and really helpful. It provided everything we needed and lots more. Highly recommended.
Historic site in Bellac
This property has been sympathetically restored in the traditional style in the centre of Bellac. The property was spotlessly clean. Was very comfortable and very tastefully furnished. Both Steve and Sue were wonderful hosts, nothing too much trouble.
A good selection of restaurants, bars and cafes within easy walking distance.
The property still has other rooms to be restored.
Would have no hesitation to recommend to a friend.
Thank you for your kind review and as you state there are other rooms to finish but could we clarify that these rooms are on another floor of the house and in no way affect anyone staying in the house as is. The work will start in November 2017 and will then give us a rental property that could sleep up to ten people, in five bedrooms with three bathrooms.
Thank you again for taking the time to review our house and we hope to see you again sometime.
