The "Département" des Deux-Sèvres is a creation of the French Revolution which took a bit of Vendée, a bit of Poitou, a bit of Angoumois and a bit of Anjou to weaken all the previous regionalisms of Western France and better control the territory. Over the years it develop its own personality, and Celles-sur-Belle, with its beautiful abbey-church is a...

We stayed at this hotel on our way back home from holidays. It's centrally located on France, close to Melle (they have an annual free Jazz Festival around the 22nd of July), Niort and Tours, and in one of the most beautiful and quite regions of France. Celles-sur-Belle is a very small typical French village, with beautiful gardens (linked to...

We stayed here last week for 3 nights. We had a standard room, which was fine. We ate in the Brasserie each night, and the food was just superb! It was 20 Euros for dinner (3 courses, with a choice of 2 items each course). One evening, I wasn't keen on the 2 starters (one was pate, which I'd had...

We stayed here on the way back to the ferry from the south west. It was a good choice, meaning we broke the back of the journey and had no mad dash afterwards. On this basis we were looking for functional rather than an "experience". In fact we were very pleasantly surprised! The rooms were of good size with good...

A charming old building steeped in character located in a very pretty little town. There is a large, secure car park at the back of the hotel which also caters for the hotel's two restaurants. I think the emphasis of the establishment is on the restaurants but they still have some very nice rooms. My room was on the first...

Located in a quaint old building right next to the town's square and big abbey's church tower, befitting its age it has no elevator, no rooms on the ground floor which is the restaurant, the bar and the a bistro (they serve cheaper and different menu's from the restaurant), a problem when you like me are a senior, since there...

Nice place to stay, not very exciting except that it is a typical French place. We found the restaurant service a bit slow. We found out that besides the restaurant there was an kind of bistro as well that offered same kind of menu, a little lower priced. More people were in there so I suppose we we affected by...

L’Hostellerie de l’Abbaye in Celles s/Belle is a clean and quiet place to stay, with a good restaurant. We arrived on the wrong day though! We got there on Sunday at 17.00 hr, just as the staff were leaving! They stop work on Sundays at 17.00, so there is nobody there after that, and no restaurant – the reason why...

“Only tried the restaurant. Avoid cold muscles and cold mashed potatoes. Beef tastes good but is a little bit firm. Deserts are top.”

“Ask for a room overlooking the church and/or the town's square, located on the first floor so not to have to carry your luggage up more stairs than strictly necessary.”
