“Provence at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Very nice rooms, piecefull, allows you to separate from hectic daily life - excellent for those seeking real break. You can enjoy time by the swimming pool or walking through long areas of preserved nature. Only 30-45 min by car would take you to some very intersting winemakers. Aproximately 60 min by car is a beautifull lake where a whole day can be spent. Many other opportunities.

Room Tip: Rooms are very nice, 4-star, very good condition, all is working well.

We stayed in Bellone for only 4 nights but it was one of the best vacations we've ever had.
If you're looking for a calm, charming vacation then is Bellone the best place you can stay in the Provence. Not only the the domain is very nice, the owners are very charming and Sylvie is a great chef who is always cooking with local and own ingredients and Thierry is the master chef of the Pizza.
Bellone is great in all his ways, it's heaven on earth where nature and charming people combine everything for a lovely vacation.

I had the pleasure to stay here mid August 2012.
Sylvie and Thierry have managed to open not just their home, but their hearts to guests.
The attention to detail is astounding, from the delicious home cooked meals, to the home made chutneys, jams and home grown vegetables, this is the good life.
The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable, but don't just take my word for it, try for yourselves.
Paul.

This secluded romantic bastide is a special gem.

We were travelling with a couple of good friends from Rome and arrived at night in the cool pouring March rain, crossing the dark Bellone private woods in our rented vehicle, but as we neared the lovely stone cottage the lights went on in the parking area, the large wood door opened and warmth came out. Sylvie and Thierry were all smiles, arms outstretched as though receiving old friends, the light that spilled from their home was golden. We were astonished at their welcome as they happily led us up the elegant stairway to see our bedrooms. High beamed ceilings, tan wood, white walls, lovely gilded mirrors lined the hallway. For me it was like being home for the holidays, the warm festive feeling in the air, the happy spirits, the casual luxury of the whole house.

The house is absolutely lovely, if possible even more than in the beautiful website photos. There is so much careful detail to every corner of each room, the beautiful beds with their neatly folded extra blankets tied up with ribbon as though they were a special gift, a collection of green and bronze glass demijohns lining the top of the bathroom, lovely framed prints on the walls, antique treasures here and there. The bathroom was modern and the shower with its oversized contemporary showerhead had invigorating pressure.

The highlight of our evening was dinner. We had accepted Sylvie and Thierry’s invitation to dine at Bellone that evening since we were arriving late and didn’t want to go back out in the rain looking for a restaurant in town. In their very large living room we sat down for a glass of local sparkling wine and appetizers with them in front of the crackling warmth of the large fireplace. They had invited their extravagant French/American friend who lives nearby, Dennis, who cheerfully played the interpreter and translated the many fine tales that Thierry had for us. We truly enjoyed his delightful company.

In front of the fire, a large chicken and a pheasant roasted on a vintage hand-cranked rotisserie spit while the enormous cast-iron plaque behind the fire reflected the heat and quickly cooked the meat. The beautiful dining room table had been preciously set that afternoon with the help of Sylvie’s granddaughter. We sat down all together as if part of a big family and were served wild baby asparagus which had been found and picked that morning with a light egg mix, the exquisite pheasant and chicken, expertly cut by Thierry, garden-grown tomatoes au gratin, a rich green salad of various leaves and a platter of French cheeses fit for a king. Sylvie then presented us with her delicious crème caramel as well as a plate of chocolate cake morsels and apple quince jellies. The wine of the region was abundant and rich and seeing that none of us had to drive home we enjoyed it throughout the meal. The company and conversation around the table was lively, interesting and oh so amicable. We felt as though we should help out in the kitchen seeing the homey atmosphere but Sylvie wouldn’t hear of it.

And the next morning, the house was bright with daylight, the table set with white and red cups and plates for our breakfast of homemade jams, fresh crunchy bread and delicious coffee. Thierry shared treasured books with us, photos of the ruins which through hard work became Bellone and his passions such as hunting, fishing and gardening while Sylvie showed us her kitchen collections and proudly displayed Italian pieces.

We enjoyed seeing family photos and were given details on the lives of their three good-looking sons and beautiful grandchildren. Sam, their Breton dog with his adorable ruffled look was another perfect part of the home, so well-behaved and gentle.

My special thanks goes to Florent for his extreme French charme and kind manners in helping out with our reservation through phone calls and messages.

This was an important part of our vacation, with our new-found friends, Thierry and Sylvie.
We’ve left our heart in Bellone, a very special place.
