Le Belvedere is one of the most outstanding properties of its type in the area with outstanding views of the valley of Argeles and has unique access to some of the last wilderness areas of France and Spain.
In 2007 with a passion for travel and adventure I arrived from Australia and purchased ‘Le Belvedere’ offering authentic French boutique accommodation to friends, family and guests from all around the world. I came to France looking for a place we could enjoy in both the summer and the winter. I fell in love with ‘Le Belvedere.’ The previous owners introduced me to an architect couple specialising in Chateau renovation in Bourdeaux. Their advice which has stayed with me, was to approach ‘Le Belvedere’ carefully to maintain its distinctive heritage and authenticity. There is something magical about this place, it seems to have the ability to capture everyone’s hearts, people simply love coming here. ‘Le Belvedere’ is very comfortable and a place you can stop and breathe and relax and absorb what this special region has to offer. The village is tranquil, and the people are very welcoming. It’s a pleasure to be a caretaker of such a beautiful house in a beautiful area."

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.
