Mark, Paul and Toby (the Labrador) offer the warmest of welcomes to guests staying at Maison Belmont.

Mark's UK career was as a department store interiors buyer and then as product manager for a major lighting company.

​Paul was a secondary school Assistant Headteacher, and a teacher of History and Classics.

​We have lived in France since 2015, at our first B&B in St Antonin Noble Val (82) and now since 2018 here in Eymet.

​After completing the guest room renovations, we opened Maison Belmont here in Eymet in May 2019.

Toby is French: a lovely mix of black Labrador with just a little bit of Beauceron and Pointer. He joined the team as a puppy in the autumn of 2015.

He is a popular and playful but very gentle 5-year-old - he is still a little puppy in many ways and just loves to make new friends with all our guests!  He has many soft toys which he will be pleased to show you!
