Great service from Claude and Luc. We'll be back!

This is our second holiday at Bel Etre this year. Everyday is so enjoyable starting with the bread and croissants delivered fresh each morning by Luc. The well equipped gites along with saltwater swimming pool, gym and beautiful countryside estate - what's not to like! Our grandson's enjoyed feeding the chickens in the summer (we enjoyed the fresh eggs). They had a wonderful day at the nearby world class zoo, and in the Chateaux at Valencay and Chenonceaux. This time, just the two of us, we cycled and visited Medieval towns. Great service from Claude and Luc. We'll be back!

Bel Etre has been my favourite French holiday ever - and I've been on a few.

Bel Etre has been my favourite French holiday ever - and I've been on a few. The site is so relaxing, and Claude and Luc are so kind and helpful, they really have thought of everything. The freshly delivered croissants and bread every morning were incredible, and the indoor pool is an absolute delight - temperature is great all day and perfect for a night swim. We loved every minute and will definately be back!

Claude's English is fluent so if your French is poor you need have no worries. Highly recommend

This really is a special place; we stayed in the gite Touraine which is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need (and more!) Claude and Luc are extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful and have provided lots of extra things such as books, games, table tennis, babyfoot as well as the tennis court, boules area, cycles, gym equipment, pool and sauna. Luc thoughtfully takes breakfast orders (bread/croissants etc) each evening and these are duly delivered each morning. Claude's English is fluent so if your French is poor you need have no worries. Highly recommend.
