We had the pleasure of staying at The Ricordeau as a 2 night stopover on our return from South West France. Can't rate this highly enough, Ludovic and Anna were wonderful hosts, Ludovic has the best sense of humour - in any language, they were both very welcoming. We had dinner here both nights and wow - what a culinary... More

Our two night stay at the Ricordeau was such an enjoyable experience. Shortly before checking in, one of our party urgently needed medical assistance and as soon as we arrived, Ludovic and Anna quickly responded, going out of their way to organise this. Throughout our stay they were attentive, relaxed and willing to share knowledge to enhance our overall trip... More

We stayed overnight at The Ricordeau en route to the Vendee - a great start to our holiday. We were given a warm welcome (including our standard poodle) and were delighted with our spacious room and bathroom decorated in lovely French style. We ate in the hotel restaurant - what a treat, as was breakfast the following morning. Beautiful hotel... More

We arrived here mid afternoon having cycled for 4-5 hours in the blistering sun. We were hot very sweaty and thirsty. we were greeted with open arms and sorted with lunch even though the restaurant was closed. It is an idyllic spot an oasis. Gardens are beautiful and it has a lovely pool. Dinner that evening was truly scrumptious. Ludovic... More

We've stayed at the Ricordeau twice this year, first en route on our bikes, cycling from Caen to south of the Loire in April. Then the hotel was quiet, but we were given a warm welcome - our bikes were stored overnight in a grand room with chandeliers and gilt mirrors while we enjoyed a room on the top floor,... More

Classy dining room with lot of space around. If you're lucky and the sun shines you can eat on the terrasse close by the river. Food is great and tasty with the right level of imagination and creativity. Service is exceptional as in most French restaurants out of Paris.

We stayed for one night on our way back to Calais from the Ile de Re. The hotel is in a small town, near Le Mans, called Loue, in the centre of the chicken breeding area! The owners, Anne-Cecile and Ludovic Deschamps, are the most delightful, helpful hosts, so the visit got off to a good start, particularly when Ludovic... More

Loué itself is a tiny little place with not a great deal going on, but inviting just the same and famous for chickens of all things. The room was nice, and large. The best part is the lovely gardens to the rear (with passing river), excellent service and very good food and wine. Breakfast was average, but dinner was excellent.... More

We stayed at the Hotel-Restaurant Ricordeau again last month on our way to south-west France. It was a lovely way to start the holiday with a nice quiet room and super food. Its becoming a bit of a habit-long may it continue !!

We stopped here for a night en route from the Alps to Roscoff. The hotel is in Loue not far from the A81 near Le Mans. It is a lovely building and looks quite grand at first sight. The staff were welcoming and we were quickly settled into our rooms for a quick turnaround before dinner. The rooms were large,... More
