Stunning views, classic house
Our stay at Le Belvedere was without doubt the most relaxing of any European destination. The birds, the bees, the flowers, the fresh air, topped off with wholesome food at the local restaurants in the nearby Salles and Argeles-Gazost. Dominique was a fantastic host supported by Penelope/Lynn who took care of our stay from day one. This home would easily suit two families or a small touring group but the antique furniture needs care. The staircase is very memorable with all of its creaks. BBQing on a deck overlooking the picturesque Pyrenees is an experience I will never forget. We drove from the north of Spain on high quality roads and took time to visit St Emilion, Bordeaux from the Le Belvedere. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful French Manor House in the heart of the Pyrenees.
Spent two weeks here with another family. Efficient booking process and Dominique there to greet us when we arrived. Very comfortable house, beautifully furnished and well equipped, children loved the pool, lovely views of the mountains, quiet village location. Quite hilly for the children to cycle back up to the house but great flat cycle route along La Vallee des Gaves from Argeles to Lourdes. Can recommend the pony treks with the riding school in Salles, we rode right past the house. Super walk to the Lac de Gaube from the Pont d'Espagne. We ordered our baguettes and croissants each morning from the visiting van from la boulangerie!

About the neighborhood
The French Pyrenees is the last remaining wilderness in southern Europe that is as well known for its stunning mountain scenery and beautiful countryside as it is for its distinctive Basque influenced cuisine. The beautiful location of Salles Argeles puts the very best of the Pyrenees at your fingertips. Nestled in the mountains amongst rolling cornfields, the village is home to Le Belvedere. Offering authentic French style, family accommodation in Vallée d'Argelès-Gazost, LeBelvedere is the perfect location from which to experience the best that Haute Pyrenees has to offer including canyoning, hiking, cycling, skiing, exploring the area’s history, a family reunion, a wedding party or or a pilgrimage to the historic location of Lourdes.
Getting around
A traditional Pyrenean mountain village. - Le Belvedere is a significant part of the heritage of the 11th century village of Salles. At the heart of village is the monastry which is still in use today, and aside from the few new residences, much of the village has remained unchanged for centuries. Like many of the Pyrenean mountain villages, Salles is linked to nearby villages via a network of walk trails that cut through forests, crop fields and streams and date back hundreds of years... well worth exploring.
