I stayed at La Belle Demeure for three nights and I wish I could have stayed for many more. Richard, Philippe and Lennox are so welcoming and the most generous of hosts. The bed and breakfast is beautifully decorated and the food is delicious. I will certainly be returning and would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: All have wonderful views.

In early May, when my husband and I arrived, jetlagged, at the doorstep of La Belle Demeure, hosts Richard and Philippe instantly set about de-stressing us. We had no idea that Philippe’s bubbly Kir Royal (made from his homemade blackcurrant liqueur) was just what we needed after our drive from Bordeaux—or that the evening’s meal would be one of the best we’d enjoy in the Dordogne.

Dinner, prepared by Richard, was a culinary tour of the area. It featured duck confit, white asparagus and excellent local wine—a Pécharmant. Throughout our stay, our hosts eagerly answered questions about what to see and do in the area—and in what order. We even had a lesson in the proper way to eat foie gras.

Rooms in this cozy 18th century house are well appointed. It came as no surprise to learn that Richard and Philippe both studied hospitality in school and worked in top hotels in London. That said, they have something you can’t teach or acquire—an innate desire (more like a drive!) to make their guests feel happy and relaxed.

This is a perfect gem of a place to stay. Richard and Phillipe are great hosts and have developed an experience that no other B&B has provided that we have stayed in. The food is to die for, the wine fantastic and the service was supreme.
The location is second to none with plenty to keep you busy and at the end of the day a swimming pool, terrace and garden to relax in.
We definitely left feeling we had made two new friends!

What a wonderful little place right in the middle of the dordogne. Richard and Philippe's hospitality is second to none, they go the extra mile to make your stay as lovely as possible. My Dad told me how wonderful this place was, but I didn't appreciate quite how great it was until I accompanied him on his second visit. Richard your cooking was divine, and thank you to both of you, for all your help and indispensable advice on everything we asked about!
I would highly recommend anyone to visit La Belle Demeure, it's in the perfect place to explore the Dordogne, and you'll struggle to find anywhere more welcoming!

Our second visit to this wonderful B&B in the Dordogne was even better than the first. We were warmly welcomed not only by Richard and Philippe but also the new entertainment director, the adorable Lennox! Richard and Philippe offer a first class service equal to any five star hotel and Philippe's table decorations were as beautiful as ever! Every little detail is tailored to each guest's individual needs whether it is for a traditional cup of earl grey tea, a huge jug of custard for the English palate or a favourite gin and tonic with the preferred addition of lime, lemon or cucumber. This year we enjoyed an aperitif each evening often consisting of home made wine or liquor from local ingredients. The food also matched the specialities of the region and each four course meal that Richard cooked for us was delicious! The table d'hotes were sociable occasions allowing us to mix with the other guests from France and America, R&P did a great job of translating constantly to ensure everyone was included in the conversation! The weather was hot enough for us to take advantage of the pool and cool down after a day sightseeing often visiting places recommended by our hosts. Thank you Richard and Philippe for making us feel so much at home and we will most definitely return when we are next in France!

Dear Susan, it was so lovely to have had you stay with us again, and we are very pleased that you found Lennox lovable. He is missing his tug-of-war matches with Richard! We are delighted you enjoyed all the little things we could think of to make your stay as enjoyable as possible - it was a real pleasure for us too. The evenings we spent around the dinner table with you were lots of fun, and we are glad you met some nice people. A la prochaine! With our very best wishes, Richard, Philippe & Lennox
