Our garden is one of the largest in the town - with double gates giving a glimpse from the street - our guests are free to relax on our outdoor sofas, tables and chairs during their stay.

Over 20 varieties of rose are at their magnificent best from late May until July. A circular box hedge is a feature of the garden, with a stone table and benches - ideal for that summer picnic !

Maison Belmont, dating from about 1789, is a classic Maison de Maitre" - a Master's House, usually found in the centre of towns across France. It is a house full of charm and character. It has some squeaky and sloping floors, rumbling pipes, and odd shaped door frames and a few other quirks which one would expect from a house this size and age. Our whole private garden is open to guests. We hope you will appreciate it and love it as much as we do.
