About Janet Carey

We moved here in 2005 to this property which was previously an 18th century Relais de Poste, so now it has come back really to its original use. We saw many properties and realised this one had the potential as a B&B and Gite with a large garden to every one has plenty of room. We are at a height of just 500 metres so in the winter we usually keep clear of the snow ourselves, which is handy. We are close to three airports, again a bonus, and the villagers are wonderful and very friendly

and have looked after us and helped up immensely

Janet Carey purchased this house in 2005

Why Janet Carey chose Bélesta

Central location for making the most of this lovely area, lots for families to see and do and for motor cyclists, walkers, people who love history or beautiful scenery and those who want to have a relaxing holiday too. We can put cycles and or motor bikes in our garage, safe and sound.We have lots of room in the garden if you fancy a bbq there is one there too.

What makes this house unique

Plenty of room, which is a bonus as its no fun being cooped up and on top of each other for you holiday,and you also need your rest as the mountain air is wonderful and everyone sleeps well after their days out. we have a bed and breakfast here too so should you require evening meals, that is also possible subject to availability

Paysages magnifiques et sauvages....

  • 5 of 5

Idéal pour les randonnées, le rafting.... mais aussi pour les baignades ( lac de montbel ). Nombreux points de vue ( gouffre des corbeaux, cascades de Roquefort, gorges de la Frau....) accessible avec des enfants (8 ans) parcours aventure crapahut tres sympa idéal en famille et animateurs accueillants idem pour la serre aux papillons : insectes que l'on croit connaître et qui révèlent bien des secrets....

Merci à Mme Carrey pour son accueil (malgré notre arrivée tardive) et toutes ses sympathiques attentions ( personne dicrete mais soucieuse de notre confort. Le gîte est spacieux dans une maison de pays avec accès au jardin. 3 vraies chambres se trouvent à l'étage avec un salon, au RDC les pièces de vie.

Peu de commerçants dans le village mais toujours sympathiques....
