We stayed here for 3 nights in July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a very nice and tranquil setting and the pool area and gardens are lovely.The highlight of our visit though were the beautiful dinners prepared by Jean Pierre and served by Elisabeth who also recommended the wines. Great hospitality!

Over 30 years travelling in France I think this is the best hotel we ever stayed in. Thank you Elizabeth and JP for a great 5 day stay. The cuisine inventive and imaginative, the lovely pool and garden, the wonderful sunsets from the dining terrace, and the obvious friendly enthusiasm and welcome from the owners.

We were welcomed by the chef proprietor who carried our cases to our room. It was lovely, spacious and comfortable with sofa, table and chairs. We spent four nights here and were asked every day what we would like to eat for dinner. One evening we had prawns followed by roast duck and then strawberries. Another night we decided we'd...

This family run hotel was very welcoming, clean, & comfortable. The chef owner & his wife provided varied substantial tasty meals. Highly recommended, an excellent retreat. St Cere is a lovely old town with an excellent market.

We needed a place to stay for a trip from Paris to the south west of France (with a stop over in Rocamadour). We have chosen the Villa Ric based on a recommendation of a hotel owner in Rocamadour as all the hotels were fully booked in Rocamadour. And this was good as it allowed us to discover this wonderful... More

We chose this hotel for the location - we needed a half-way stop for 1 night on the way down south. We were amazed to find that we had discovered a really wonderful hotel which was outstanding in every way. The location really is fabulous with stunning views, a huge pool in the lovely gardens, and delightful, comfortable rooms. But... More

The Villa Ric is a superb hotel in a beautiful setting, with lovely views. The hotel and its gardens are immaculately kept by the owners, Jean-Pierre and Elisabeth Ric, who are very welcoming and friendly. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable, and pristine clean. We enjoyed every meal , starting with drinks on the terrace, and continuing with Jean-Pierre's interesting... More

This is not officially a 5 star hotel but if you require sparklingly clean accommodation with superb food then this is for you. The villa is in a quiet location with all round fantastic views. Jean-Pierre and his wife Elisabeth are very friendly and helpful hosts. We hope to return.

Just returned from the Dordogne and Lot and found Villa Ric by chance. SO GRATEFUL! Elisabeth and Jean Pierre couldn't have been more gracious, but all the other factors: views of the valley, pool, lawn terrace, spotless and cheery rooms, quiet, and the wonderful dinners. i can't wait to make the surprising and scrumptious red wine sorbet. st. cere is...

We've been coming to JP Ric's restaurant for many years, often introducing friends to this superb restaurant. Every single meal has always been an absolute treat. Villa Ric is head and shoulders above the already excellent restaurants in the region. Meals are full of delightful surprises, such the red wine and tarragon sorbets served as palette cleansers in between courses.... More
