The House
Le Belvedere is a luxurious self catering house unique to the Valley and was originally built over 300 years ago, located near Lourdes, Pyrenees, in the south of France. Since that time it has been a government building, local council house, school, and private residence. The 300 year old wooden staircase is heritage listed for its unique construction as it is entirely free standing without vertical support beams.

Le Belvedere has a private pool and terrace area with stunning views of the Pyrenees ski fields which is approximately 20 minutes away. Your home away from home...guests never want to leave as the ambience of Le Belvedere is just magical.

The Grounds
The pool, terrace and barbecue area is yours to enjoy! The 10m x 5m outdoor swimming pool is surrounded with decking and outdoor chairs for your comfort. The terrace are...

Reviewed June 17, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

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.

Management response:

Thank you so much for your kind words and it was an absolute pleasure having you stay. We look forward to being able to welcoming you again in the future.
