Many of our guests arrive as unexpectant holiday makers to the Loire Valley, and leave as friends.

And even more touching are the ‘reminders’ our guests have taken personal time to create, giving us wonderful keepsakes to fondly reminisce over.

They have pushed the distance boundaries of where I advise one to go just from our village, Pouançay!!


Sketch of La BellevueThis week I received Nathalie’s fabulous sketch of ‘La Bellevue’, capturing ‘Annie’s House’, ‘La Grange d’Henri’, the main house and the entrance to our troglodyte caves…

Now I can’t wait to get it framed for ALL to see – thank you so much and needless to say Gérald and I are looking forward to welcoming you both back to ‘La Bellevue’.

Please help us!
