Dining at the Maison Bellachonne is an enjoyable experience for all our guests, with freshly-prepared home-made dishes made with seasonal produce or from local producers at Bellac’s own weekly markets. Enjoy an aperitif before sitting down to dinner in our spacious period dining room – a beautiful light-filled room situated on the lst floor with lovely views over the square and the elegant Hotel de Ville (town hall).
