Belloc is a commune in the Ariège department of southwestern France.

It is located between Mirepoix and Foix and sits in the midst of a vast agricultural area. The mairie is the heart of this tiny commune which boasts incredible vistas toward the Pyrenees mountains. The region features a robust cuisine including cassoulet and confit de canard and wines including the corbieres, minervois and malepere. The semi-hard ewe's milk cheese Abbaye de Belloc was first made here in the monastery of Notre-Dame de Belloc.

Famous quotes containing the word belloc:

    Don different from those regal Dons!
    With hearts of gold and lungs of bronze,
    Who shout and bang and roar and brawl
    The Absolute across the hall,
    —Hilaire Belloc (1870–1953)

    He slipped his hand and ran away!
    He hadn’t gone a yard when—Bang!
    With open jaws, a lion sprang,
    And hungrily began to eat
    The boy: beginning at his feet.
    —Hilaire Belloc (1870–1953)

    I’m tired of Love; I’m still more tired of Rhyme. But money gives me pleasure all the time.
    —Hilaire Belloc (1870–1953)
