Grounds, pool and surrounding area

The 3.5m x 9m pool is 1.2m deep and salt water with an electric roll top cover. The pool is surrounded with paving and has sun loungers. Nearby a new terrace with barbecue and garden furniture has been created to make the most of the views.

Outside there is ample parking for several vehicles and shaded seating areas. In summer you can watch small lizards sunning on the cottage walls and swifts flying over the veranda on warm evenings. The nearest neighbours (local Aubrac cows) are very friendly and you may even see red deer visiting the garden in late evening.

Belle Vue is a traditional large stone cottage for 4 people with a wonderful new pool and stunning panoramic views. The property overlooks the confluence of the rivers Lot and Truyère that meet in the beautiful medieval town of Entraygues-Sur-Truyère. Originally a small vineyard, the house is positioned to enjoy the warmth of the sun on a south-facing slope of the Lot Valley. The garden extends to approximately an acre and includes a small oak copse and a stone bread oven, new private swimming pool and terrace.


A delightful but steep walk takes you down to the medieval town of Entraygues that has a full range of shops,  local butchers and bakers, numerous cafes and restaurants. Farmers markets on Fridays and in the summer, night markets, provide local speciality food and entertainment in the market square. Leisure amenities include canoeing, horse riding, river rafting, tennis, golf and river walks.  Conques and Estaing, two of the “Beaux Villages de France”, are just a short distance away. The large towns of Aurillac and Rodez are about an hour’s drive and both offer extensive shopping, culture, restaurants and activities to suit all tastes.
