I booked two cosy rooms at La Belle Demeure for my husband and a friend who had planned a hiking trip in the Dordogne in late September. This review is being jointly written based on my reservation experience and their guest experience. The reservation process was congenial, informative and very well organized. Richard and Philippe are very thorough and detail... More

La Belle Demeure is a great base to explore an amazing part of the Dordogne. The location is ideal, the bed and breakfast beautiful, and the hosts friendly and knowledgeable. Richard and Phillipe had excellent advice that helped us get the most out of our stay here. We stayed in the charmingly decorated family suite which has two bedrooms and... More

We had the great good fortune to stay two nights at this wonderful bed and breakfast. Richard and Phillipe welcomed us into their home and made us feel like family. The rooms were small, but comfortable. Sharing the evening meal and the breakfasts were outstanding. We learned upon leaving that it was named a 2013 TripAdvisors Travelers Choice winner. It...

What lovely hosts Phillipe and Richard are. They are the epitome of excellence. Charming, organised and delightful company. There are so many fantastic reviews but we just wanted to add to it because our stay was so good. We wished we could have stayed longer. Staying at La Belle Demeure is something you will remember all your life no matter... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and found our hosts, Richard & Phillipe, to be very caring to ensure all their guests enjoy their visit not only to their beautiful home, but also the surrounding area. They are more than happy to recommend and organise any day trips for the guests, or if you want to spend... More

My wife and I stayed at Le Belle Demeure for two nights, as part of a seven-day cycling trip and were extremely satisfied with everything. In fact, there has probably not been such an effective piece of Anglo-French cooperation since the Dual Entente (1904). The hosts, Richard (such a nice name, as my mother would say) and Philippe (again, such... More

Our stay at La Belle Demeure was as a result of a recommendation by friends who were camping in the area and whom we had journeyed to the Dordogne to visit. They hoped we would like it but weren't sure as they'd never actually stayed there themselves. They need not have been concerned! We loved everything about the place, not... More

A wonderful warm welcome awaited us in this quiet (but ideally situated) corner of the Perigord Noir. Richard and Philippe instantly made us feel so much at home once again. The room was beautifully comfortable, and, like last year, some small but noticeable improvements had been made. Meals, as ever, were expertly cooked and presented, and served "house-party" style on... More

We last stayed here 35 years ago! As you would expect there are new owners, bedrooms have been upgraded and a swimming pool has also been added. Richard and Philippe are fabulous hosts and seemed to predict our every need even before we did! It doesen't get much better after a hot day's sightseeing than to have a quick dip... More

We stayed as guests of Richard and Philippe for 4 days in July. We were warmly and personally welcomed by Philippe , whose command of English is superb. He's the 'frog' in their amusing email address. Richard -'lerosbif'- produced wonderful food and he and my wife have exchanged recipes. Nothing was too much trouble and although we were visiting family... More
