We had a stunning holiday at Bel Air Gites this summer!

Wouldn’t hesitate in going back – superb from start to finish.

Patricia, Paul and Cian have thought of everything!

Another fantastic fortnight at Bel Air!

We recently returned from a fabulous holiday at Bel Air Gites. As a mum of two adventurous boys (a 6 and two yr. old) it’s SO important that our holiday has plenty to keep the boys entertained and Bel Air Gites really has this and more. There is a hugh outside space with a football area, basketball hoops, a trampoline, swings, climbing equipment, toddler toys and a big heated swimming pool.
There was a brilliant play room with lots of toys, pool table plus DVDs & books for the all ages including us. Bel Air also provides all the little extras that you usually have to pack for a holiday with kids e.g.: travel cot, blankets, blackout blinds, beach toys etc. REALLY great feature that you we have never gotten anywhere else.
It is within close driving distance of loads of tourist attractions, beaches and has some great supermarket shops close by to get your day to day goods. All in all I really can’t rate Bel Air enough, Patricia, Paul and Cian have thought of everything and are really excellent hosts.

I’d recommend this to any family wanting a toddler friendly holiday

It is our 3rd time and we can't wait to return again.

We visited a couple weeks ago and I have to say we had such a great week. Lots to do in the area but we enjoyed relaxing at the gites. Our little girl 2 and little boy 11 months had a fantastic time. There’s everything you need for little ones. They loved the pool, the huge play room and especially the trampoline.

The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. And we loved having there dog sandy around.

All in all I’d recommend this to any family wanting a toddler friendly holiday. The near by beaches and zoo are great to visit.

Thanks for everything Patricia, hope to see you guys again in the not too distant future.

We love BelAir Gites. We have spent our last 4 summer holidays there with our family and have already booked for next year!

Patricia & Paul are always very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The gite has everything we need and is clean and tidy. The patio overlooks the fields and is a relaxing and peaceful haven.

The children have a great time. They always make friends and spend time in the games room or the playground, in the pool or just exploring.

The local area is beautiful and there are lots of lovely places to visit. Great restaurants in nearby towns and fabulous beaches.

It’s a big 5 stars from me!

Another fantastic fortnight at Bel Air! Our now 2 yr old daughter had a wonderful time exploring the gite and the grounds. The trampoline was her favourite! We had a lovely relaxing break. The weather was amazing and Paul and Patricia could not have been more welcoming.

We plan to return for a third time and would DEFINITELY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Another fantastic fortnight at Bel Air!

We visited with our young boys age 7 and twin 3 year olds. They LOVED it! So much space to play, back to nature fun, a huge play barn full of toys and games for all ages, masses of land with play equipment and of course the pool, which was their favourite. Bel Air has a BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL, RELAXED and SAFE environment, with excellent hosts, who are genuinely friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The accommodation is just idyllic, it has all the modern things you need, it’s comfortable, well kept and very clean whilst maintaining that French farmhouse rustic style!
We found the other families staying at Bel Air friendly and sociable, the children enjoyed playing and making new friends, and so did we. A sociable glass or two of wine with good company if you wanted it, but it is very relaxed, the evenings were quiet and happy.
There are so many great places to visit near by, our favourite place being the Cote de Savage for the surf beaches!
We call it the ‘Bel Air Bubble’, such a wonderful place to escape, we plan to return for a third time and would DEFINITELY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Spent 4 fantastic weeks at Bel Air gites this summer

Spent 4 fantastic weeks at Bel Air gites this summer

Spent 4 fantastic weeks at Bel Air gites this summer, so much so that we’ve already rebooked for 4 weeks next year. Trisha and Paul are very welcoming, easy going and hospitable and nothing is too much trouble. Our gite was La Chouette which with 2 large bedrooms and separate lounge and kitchen, all spread over 2 floors, was a real home from home. With a private patio area La Chouette is great for longer holidays. Facilities for the kids are brilliant which means they can make friends and amuse themselves whilst the parents relax a bit. Most of the people we met were on their 2nd, 3rd or 4th visit – there’s no better recommendation than that! Here’s to next year!

having the indoor and outdoor play areas was fantastic – we enjoyed every minute of our visit

Thank you for a wonderful holiday Tricia and Paul. This was our first trip overseas with Isla and Max and you made it so easy for us with the high chairs, booster seats and everything else we could possibly need for 2 small children. We loved the gite and pool and having the indoor and outdoor play areas was fantastic – we enjoyed every minute of our visit

It is our 3rd time and we can’t wait to return again.

It is our 3rd time and we can't wait to return again.

We have had yet another fabulous holiday at Bel-Air. It is our 3rd time and we can’t wait to return again. The hosts Patricia and Paul are so welcoming and friendly. The Gites are fantastic, each year we have had a lovely bottle of wine and cake on arrival as well as milk, tea and coffee etc. the Gites are very well equipped and modern with a lovely homely feel. The position of Bel-Air is ideal for exploring the many beaches with some fantastic waves for body boarding especially at the Cote Savage. There are so many beautiful and interesting places to visit and each year have found new places to explore. Our children, 7 year old boy and 4 year old girl, just love staying at Bel-Air -there is a huge play area with fantastic outdoor play equipment which give the children hours of fun, there is the heated outdoor pool which the children went in every day and just loved, as well as the games room with lots of DVDs table tennis and fun toys for the kids. The children made some great friendships while staying at Bel-Air and the safe environment meant you could allow your children the freedom to explore with peace of mind that it is safe but fun, leaving the adults time to socialise over a glass of wine 🙂. We are definitely coming back.

Thank you Paul & Patricia for an amazing stay at Bel Air.

The gite (Les Chenes 2) was spacious, immaculately presented and well equipped with all you could possibly need to get your holiday started (washing powder, dishwasher tablets, all cleaning products etc), not forgetting the lovely finishing touches of a chilled bottle of Rose to a beautiful apple tart from the local vineyard / patisserie.

Bel air is in a beautiful, peaceful spot surrounded by sunflower and vine fields yet only 5 minutes from the Gironde estuary, 20 minutes to the bustling towns of St George and Royan and less than 30 minutes to the fabulous beaches of La Grand Cote and Le Cote Sauvage.

Our twin boys, age 9, loved the freedom they were able to enjoy with new found friends in the 25 acres of meadow and gardens. The trampoline was a particular favourite when not in the pool and the games room provided a haven to watch DVDs with their friends nearer bedtime. Needless to say Mum & Dad relaxed knowing the kids were safe & happy whether that be in the tranquility of our own private patio or sharing stories from the day with other guests in the courtyard.

Paul and Patricia extend a warm and friendly welcome whilst maintaining a healthy distance to allow their guests to feel truly at home in this wonderful, family friendly complex. A particular thank you to Paul who reset the satellite channels to facilitate viewing the Rugby World Cup warm up matches and keep Martyn happy despite the result!

We have holidayed in quite a few gites complexes since the children came along but we can honestly say this is the 1st time we have not been ready to return home after a 3 week break so much so that we have already booked another 3 weeks next year…roll on summer 2016!

Fantastic hosts, great facilities all round for adults and children alike.

Excellent! What a wonderful holiday!!!!

Fantastic hosts, great facilities all round for adults and children alike.

Our two girls made new friends in no time and were able to play safely throughout our time there. The play area has plenty for children, and the pool is a really good size with plenty of sun beds for all – they even bought a few new ones out whilst we were there.

The area is lovely with a good range of beaches and places to explore.

If you want a peaceful relaxing holiday, somewhere that’s safe for the children to play and make new friends, wonderful helpful hosts, and beaches to explore, this is the holiday for you!

We love it. See you again!
