The neighbourhood

Valençay castle
The closest to Bel être.The domain of Valençay has a rather long history starting in 1803 when Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord acquired it. The château was built over three centuries and combines several styles of architecture without disrupting the overall harmony of the structure. On the contrary, it is one of the most prestigious buildings in the Loire Valley. Start your visit here

Visiting Loire’s castles
Built along the « Cher» and the « Loire » rivers, you will have to choose between « Chenonceau castle » (ladies castle), the incredible Chambord castle, Cheverny castle (who inspired Hergé with Tintin) etc.. please go to: loire-châteaux.org

Beauval zoo
Since their arrival in 2012, they are the stars of the ZooParc de Beauval ! Huan Huan, the female giant panda, and Yuan Zi, the male, are at the center of all attentions.
N°1 zoo in France, Beauval look after more than 600 species, the biggest animal diversity ever seen. Reproduction is their main object and re-introducing every species in their natural land is a goal for this family affair, set up by great Madame Françoise Delord.

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Bel Etre. We stayed in Berry - beautifully decorated and well equipped. The pool is fabulous - indoors when the weather is poor and the doors can all open when the suns out. Claude and Luc are so welcoming whilst also giving you privacy. Valencay and Chenonceau are nearby. Highly recommend

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!
