*Please note, locations shown on the maps are approximations only Belair offers tranquility and privacy, and yet is only a few kilometres from the village of Eymet which has shops, bars, restaurants and plenty of events throughout the summer months. Surrounded entirely by beautiful countryside, it is a haven for wildlife - wild boar, deer, hares, and birds of prey. The terraces and verandas offer the perfect spot from which to view these delights. Although Belair is tranquil and private, it offers easy access to the many delights the Dordogne has to offer. There are activities to suit all ages and interests: foodies will enjoy the great local restaurants at the heart of France's centre of gastronomic excellence, as well as the wine of AOC Bergerac.
