We have had a wonderful week in this very well appointed townhouse. Lots of nice touches, the picnic basket, decent knives, nice big fridge, a dishwasher, wow! The furnishings and decor are great and the internet (once I figured out how to turn the computer on) was a big bonus.
Estaing is fantastic. Just the right size. All the necessary services. Very nice dining options. Fascinating to stroll the streets and the back alleys. We loved the garden. Found the chocolate nuns and bought their excellent goodies. All in all, a memorable week. Thanks.

"Dit was een heel andere vakantie die we normaal gewend waren!
Een practisch huis met alle faed liteiten en een prachtige omgeving. Een weekje is eigenlyk te kort!
Maar het finste en pretigste en luckste was het gerelschap van de eigenaren. We zullen hier beshist no geen keer terug komen.
There is not much I can add to the words above, so we thank you for the opportunity and hope to come back to your lovely place in Estaing".

"How nice to find ourselves a home from home, with all the creature comforts to which we are accustomed!
However, we could not use the wifi without a password and therefore impossible to access internet with our own computer".

"How wonderful to arrive after a very long journey to find such a lovely townhouse, so beautifully fitted out.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, exploring this ancient, peaceful and interesting part of the world.
We think the owners have been thoughtful and generous to have installed a computer, especially appreciated by overseas visitors.
They have catered for every taste and the luxury of being able to wander into the village to pick up essentials, or enjoy a meal with wine, without the bother of driving, was magical.
We would certainly recommend La Belle Maison".

"What a great holiday home. We arrived Sat. afternoon to find everything set-up for us. 51 Rue d'Oultre is a wonderful house - from the solid front door to the upper floors, the furnishings and beds are first class.
We were here during a hot period and inside was always cool. The morning sun streamed through the windows and there was a cool courtyard for our (usually) late breakfast. This was always taken after a short walk down the street to the patisserie for supplies.
Estaing is a lovely village in a beautiful area. We were lucky enough to arrive at summer festival time with processions through the town and great fireworks on Sunday night.
Now we head north east and it is a wrench to leave. We will be back!!!"

"My 10 days in your French home felt like I was living in a picture story book. The location was marvellous and I was able to experience village life as well as take excursions into the beautiful countryside.
The facilities went far beyond my expectations and the shower was an absolute delight! I really appreciated having English TV, phone and internet acccess; the latter allowed me to contact family easily and conduct some occasional business. Even fresh vegs in the garden, along with la poste and great food/wine within walking distance. What luxury! I intend to go home and save my Aussie dollars with a view to returning soon. Salut, au revoir, a bientot, je reviendrai!"

"La Belle Maison" for whatever reason, your home could not have been given a better name.
The village is amazing and our holiday has been likewise.
Many thanks from "

"The house is wonderful and very well appointed and finished. We love the way it has been so sympathetically refurbished in a simple but very fitting and attractive style.
Estaing is a beautiful and friendly little village. We loved discovering all the little paths and alleyways round the houses. This is also a very attractive, unspoiled and undiscovered region - let's hope it stays like that!
We dined in Le Bel Horizon across the bridge and up the hill. Superb views and very good food and hospitality. Thank you for a great week".

"La Belle Maison" a beautiful, well appointed house with beautiful views and surrounding landscape.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in Estaing, a beautiful little town and townhouse. Particular highlights include eating at the hotel restaurant by the river (the Aux Armes) which we wholeheartedly recommend, visiting Conque and lazing around in the sunshine at the local pool which had fantastic views!
Thank you very much and well done on your brilliant house!"

"We had a fantastic 6 nights here. It was well equipped and a very welcome change to the hotels and travelling weeks prior to arriving. If we had seen more of this country prior, we would have only chosen a self contained gite like this. Next time it will be an easy choice. Thank you to the owners and the wonderful people who look after the property and suggeted this place to us. We loved travelling though France but it was great to stop and breath."
