Meet your hosts

Gloria and Bob Belknap, your American hosts, began their love affair with France in 1974 when Gloria graduated from La Varenne a cooking school in Paris. Bob, an engineer with the Bechtel Corporation, then joined her in exploring the countryside. Through the years these two native Californians returned searching for the perfect location for their dream of living in France.


For fifteen years they lived in downtown Boston in a classic 19th century brownstone which they owned and named “The Terrace Townhouse” (the most successful luxury bed and breakfast in the City). Here in France, Gloria and Bob look forward to greeting their guests in their new home.
