We had a wonderfully relaxing break in late Autumn. Very characterful old building, with outside room to sit in - even when it's raining - and just watch the horses in the paddock, and listen to the birds. Lovely! (The electric heaters were very efficient, which was good as the old building soon picks up any cold and damp from the outside.)

We would try to come earlier in the year for our next visit, so that the lighter evenings would enable us to walk into the village to visit the restaurants there for dinner.

Roddy is an excellent host; very welcoming, and with many suggestions for places to eat and places to visit. He also serves an excellent breakfast!

The owners were really nice, very friendly giving plenty of help and advise with places to visit and shop. The property was as we expected with lots of room and large paddock for my daughters dogs. Very friendly dog venue, and would not hesitate to recomend. The property is located in a lovely location, and the village is very clean and tidy as was most of the French villages we visited.

We had a great stay in a delightful property. Roddy ,Sue (and Hugo the dog) could not have been more welcoming and gave great advice on local attractions and restaurants etc.We spent many hours soaking up the sun in the lovely garden and Le Bec Hellouin is an absolutely beautiful village with a small selection of good eateries and high quality tourist shops as well as the having the attraction of the Abbaye. The local area has a wealth of attractions set in beautiful scenery within a short drive. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to other couples.
