Stay at Bellac’s Number One Chambres d’Hotes!

Visit our friendly bed and breakfast in the heart of the pretty medieval town of Bellac and stay with us in one of our spacious & comfortable ensuite bedrooms. We’re very easy to find – opposite the Town Hall with free parking right outside our front door – so you’ll arrive stress-free.    Perhaps you’re just looking for a comfortable, friendly overnight stay where you can totally de-stress and relax with a glass of  chilled French wine in our courtyard garden or join us for dinner in our elegant dining room – we’ve got great local knowledge too so will do our best to help you make the most of your stay with us.

We’re situated in the Haute Vienne in the  beautiful and unspoilt Limousin, known as France’s lake district, where time stands still and you can truly unwind.  Maybe you’re looking for your dream French property (Limousin property prices are the most affordable in France), want to browse in the many brocantes (antique shops) to find an original French treasure or experience the ever-changing landscape of rivers, lakes, fields and forests with the many outdoor pursuits available here: golf, fishing, cycling, rambling or horse-riding or just get a taste of French life by visiting the many towns & villages with their traditional markets and sample the local cuisine in the cafés, restaurants and bistros.
