Welcome to Belle Chasse, LA

Just south of Algiers and Gretna on the New Orleans West Bank lies Belle Chasse, LA (French for“beautiful hunting”) .  Belle Chasse has long been a tight knit community with a great history of hunters and fisherman among its residents, in addition to some of the best citrus orchards in the southeast.  If you’ve never had a satsuma, you don’t know what you are missing!  The Plaquemines Parish Fair and Orange Festival is one of the most anticipated events each December in Belle Chasse.

Located in Plaquemines Parish, Belle Chasse has been home to the Naval Air Station, Joint Reserve Base New Orleans (the former Alvin Callender Field) since 1957 and houses many military families during their stay in the New Orleans area.

Belle Chasse is a high demand area of the West Bank, in large part due to the excellent public school system in the community.   This demand has pushed the average housing price to one of the highest of the West Bank communities.  Exclusive neighborhoods such as Springwood Estates and Pleasant Ridge Estates have sprung up in recent years to meet the growing demand for housing in the area.
