“ONE OF THE BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Coleen, this must be one of the highlights to our visits to Europe in the past 10 years - everything that we experienced was 110% - we even overslept the first morning breakfast (which was fantastic) - by a full 2 hrs - (the bed was extremely comfortable) - the entire house is impeccable , as a fellow Architect the restoration could not have been better implemented , it was authenic but has all the necessary service upgraded - the village at night is fabulous (even if no restaurants are open) The Village is a real spectacle, Coleen managed a booking at the La Poste restaurant in the nearby village - possibly one of the most memorable and interesting dinners we have had in France.

The accommodation is perfect and the proprietors fabulaous - we will certainly visit again if in the region (a LOONG wy from Capetown South Aftica)

We would like that thank David and Colleen for making our stay so enjoyable at La Grange Du Belvedere. This was the last night of our honeymoon and a perfect stop off on our journey between Ile de Re and Geneva.
Colleen and David were so friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had a splendid time, helping reserve a fine table at the local restaurant, and treating us to a sumptuous breakfast the following morning.

Thank you again for your kind hospitality, we would certainly recommend you to our friends and family. We did not have much time to look around Charroux however we will be sure to return and enjoy the guesthouse and beautiful village some time in the future.
Best wishes from Sarah-Jane & Darren Mason , Geneva Switzerland

Colleen & David have restored an old barn in Charroux into the most beautiful Country Retreat you could ever wish to stay in. The rooms are stylish, extremely comfortable and the fresh fruit, Badoir water and chocolates are a delightful touch and most welcome after our longish drive to Charroux from Lausanne in Switzerland. Colleen serves a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, sliced baguette, croissants and pastries with a choice of coffee and/or tea . David has the most wonderful collection of books that he has collected over many years and we just loved having the opportunity to browse through some of them during our stay. We stayed two nights and loved every moment of our stay. Apart from La Grange du Belverdere being such a beautiful Country Retreat, the rate per night of Euro 85.00 per night was a real surprise for such luxury, comfort and attention to detail.

To Colleen and David, thank you for making our wedding anniversary weekend such a memorable occasion and we will look forward to seeing you again when we are next in the Auvergne. You are truly wonderful hosts!

It has all been said by others. Beautifully restored property in charming village. Every detail has been attended to with excellent taste and regardless of expense. Accommodation immaculate. Continental breakfast with fresh melon, pineapple, strawberries, croissants, baguettes and absolutely divine home-made preserves could not have been better. David and Colleen are very friendly and welcoming hosts. I would certainly make a detour to re-visit this place in the future.

Our stay at La Grange du Belvedere was wonderful. The property is charming and our room was perfect. The bed was so comfortable that we both slept in! Charroux is an interesting little village. The church in the the center of town is a must see. Mr. and Mrs. Sharpe were friendly, helpful hosts. Staying here was one of the highlights of our trip to France!

We stayed one night only, en route back home from Spain, we couldnt stay on the way out as it was fully booked. Next year we shall contact Colleen in good time to make sure we can stay at the Grange again. We have stayed in all manner of hotels and B&Bs around the world, and this must rank within our top 5. The room is beautifully furnished, with a wonderful shower room and separate loo. Having arrived at the end of a hot day it was lovely to find a bottle of mineral water waiting for us in a cooler, as well as fresh fruit and chocolates. And bath-robes and bath slippers, and the bed is just perfect, and Colleen and her husband are incredibly nice and helpful. I cannot imagine what the author of that one negative review was thinking when she wrote what she did.
And then a gorgeous breakfast, with great croissants, great bread and home made preserves, all served with a smile. This is the first time I have ever written a review, but reading that one putdowner made me so incensed. This is a 5 star B&B, in every sense.

La Grange du Belvedere is certainly one of the best B & B's in France. The owners, David and Colleen, have great taste and has created a wonderful home for travellers. The house has a lived-in ambiance, beautiful furniture and the rooms are comfortable with everything to make your stay unforgettable - luxurious linen, great bathrooms, fresh fruit in the room and wonderful decor. The hosts went out of their way to make our stay unforgettable. We strongly recommend La Grange du Belvedere.
