About Andrew

Jess and Andrew (pictured here long before children and responsibilities came along) bought this house in 2014 and we have been renovating and restoring it since then. It has become a wonderful oasis for our family from our home in Brighton.

Brilliant family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a two week stay at Bellevue and we had a wonderful time. We are a family of five (10,6 and 3). The house is very well equipped and comfortable making it easy to relax. We went on plenty of walks locally and enjoyed the surrounding areas. The book in the property makes some great suggestions and we recommend using it. Even on wet days the children still made use of the pool and the large garden. There are plenty of games to keep all ages occupied. This really is a beautiful place to be. I miss my morning coffee on the patio looking out over the fields, my children want to live there !!

The owner was happy to answer my many many questions and was easily contactable the whole time (if we needed them). We had a brilliant holiday and have made some wonderful memories.

Fantastic gite and the garden and pool were perfect. Weather a bit mixed but still had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

The property was first class and in a great position for exploring the area. The pool area being slightly lower than the garden creates a great sun trap (when it shone lol) and the overall gite was first class.

A real taste of french life

  • 5 of 5

A real taste of life in a French home. The garden with the pool, trampoline and shady trees was great although we weren't able to take as much advantage as we would have liked, due to the weather in late October! Really handy for Champagne Mouton with its boulangerie, bar and supermarket (including petrol). Also well placed for touring the area. The cottage was brilliantly equipped and we immediately felt at home and very comfortable. Andrew could not have been more helpful to make sure we had everything to fully enjoy our stay. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely Country Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed our week in this charming well furnished cottage near Champagne Mouton. The house is kitted out with satellite tv, dvds, games and plentiful kitchen devices, even an espresso coffee maker which got a good workout. Loved the massive garden and enjoyed the large pool and sun lounges. We had many long lazy lunches on the patio under the vines. Divine views over fields from the first floor. Each day we enjoyed a pleasant 15 min walk to the village for fresh pastries.
