Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have just returned from a family holiday in the Dordogne where we stayed with Richard and Philippe at La Belle Demeure.
Never having been to this area of France, we were unsure of the best place to stay but having heard good things and read some of the reviews that had been given for their Chambres D’Hotes, we decided to give them a try.
I am delighted to say that we could not have chosen better and Richard and Philippe deserve recognition for the quality and service that they offer. It was outstanding!
Due to travel disruption we were horribly late arriving on our first night, but as we drew up outside, Richard came to welcome us. After such a long journey (we will break it up next time!) his genuine smile and sense of calm was exactly what was needed. We had asked for supper on this first night but being so late we expected this not to be an option, but no, as we walked up the steps in to the courtyard, there was a table laid for us under the huge spreading vine and we were served a meal that was our first introduction to Richards skill in the kitchen (meals that were imaginative, using local ingredients and skilfully put together). We knew at once that we had chosen well!

Our rooms (one suite and a double) were spacious and offered all that we needed. The beds were very comfortable (more so than my one at home!) and the rooms cool and airy, even in the heat of summer.
Breakfast on the terrace, sitting under the huge vine was well thought out and varied each day. Knowing that I have an intolerance to gluten, Richard had made ample preparation to feed me and his overnight oats were a fantastic touch.

Throughout our stay we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at La Belle Demeure with both of our hosts taking time to chat with us about our plans for the day (they happily made reservations for us when our French was not up to it!) On one evening they took us into the village where we joined the whole community at the Marchés Gourmands (fabulous confit duck by the way) What could make us feel more welcome than this?
Richard and Philippe trained in some very well respected establishments in their past and this shows through in their attention to detail and guest focused approach.
Hospitality, food, comfort and atmosphere all score top marks at La Belle Demeure!

I wish we could say the place is terrible, so that the availability is always there for us, but the opposite is the case.
An extremely attentive couple who are born hosts. One is looked after 24/7 and the evening meals (pre-book please) are wonderful, local, haut cuisine and soooo affordable (about €36 for a 4 course dinner). Many thanks to Richard & Philippe. "We'll be back" (that's a threat) 😎

Another wonderful few days at LBD with Rich and Philippe. They are truly the best hosts and Rich’s cooking is delicious - hand crafted from local produce and superb value for money. The rooms are so comfortable and the oasis of a courtyard with a refreshing pool is a perfect place to relax. Thanks again to LBD for the most relaxing break with good friends - until the next time

Richard & Philippe make every guest feel welcome and offer a great hands on service. La Belle Demeure B&B is a beautiful restored coaching Inn with bags of character. The area around is stunning with scores of interesting places to visit by car, bicycle or walking. At the end of the day a tasty meal cooked by Richard is available, if required, under the old grape vine overlooking the view. What a perfect end to a day out!

A very special mini break with family. Perfectly located for visiting beautiful nearby villages and chateaus as well as idyllic kayak down the dordogne river. La Belle Demeure is a jewel in the crown with its quaint and historic building and beautifully presented rooms. However the best part is the hospitality of the hosts Richard and Philippe who made us feel so welcome, provided fabulous cuisine using locally sourced ingredients and only added to the experience. Thank you for a wonderful holiday x

Just wonderful ! Fabulous rooms, fabulous food and fabulous hosts.

Richard & Philippe are super hosts, very welcoming and do everything they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. They are experts in the surrounding area, full of recommendations of things to do, places to go and see. They happily organised canoeing and cycling for us and we're willing to assist when we needed a bit of help with French translation.

We stayed in the family suite which was perfect for a family, lovely bedrooms and plenty of space to relax after a day out or an afternoon spent by the pool. The terrace from the room leads straight down to the pool area.

The food was incredible, starting with the breakfast on the terrace under the vines to the optional evening meal. We would highly recommend joining the evening three course dinner when possible, incorporating a fantastic range of local produce including fresh strawberries and local duck. It's a very social affair with the other guests. Richard is an amazing chef and Philippe makes the most amazing apperitifs from local ingredients such as walnuts.

Overall an amazing stay and will be back soon.

My friend and I had a lovely six night stay at this beautiful hotel. We were welcomed by the lovely hosts and were made to feel very at ease throughout our stay. The food was delicious and the hosts were very knowledgeable about the area, giving us very interesting, fun recommendations every day. The location is incredibly picturesque and we very much enjoyed our time spent here.

LBD feels like 'Home from Home'. As always Richard & Philippe were attentive, professional but delightful hosts and the evening dinners were a highlight of the day. Ideally sighted for exploring the region with plenty of parking, you need a number of days stay to maximise the advantages of this friendly helpful establishment which seems to function as a house party, seamlessly in both French & English.

We spent two nights at La Belle Demeure as part of a family bike trip (organized through Aquitaine Bike, also wonderful). We are two parents and two children aged 11 and 14. We had dinner both nights with Richard and Philippe and were joined by two other guests who were visiting from Switzerland. The meals were wonderful, and we especially enjoyed the opportunity to chat and visit with travellers from another country, and best of all to be joined by our hosts. Richard and Philippe managed to keep the meal on track expertly while at the same time dining with their guests and sharing information and experiences about the area, the food and many other things. It was like staying with friends. After dinner Richard invited us to join him and Lennox (the dog) for a walk. One of the nights there was a festival in the village and Richard accompanied us to it. Our kids rode the bumper cars while the adults danced to french pop music. Richard and Philippe were incredibly thoughtful and attentive. For example taking our water bottles to half-freeze overnight so that they would stay cold on our rides the next day. Or booking our canoe rental at a reduced price, or sharing the sandwich choices at the local bakery. Richard also introduced us to the french version of Wordle. (It's called Le Mot).
We would have stayed longer if we could have. There is plenty to do in the area and La Belle Demeure is a warm and welcoming home base.

Bonjour ! It was a super weekend that we had during your stay. We loved chatting with you and spending time with you all. And as for your skills at Le Mot – Bravo et felicitations! Biking around the Dordogne as you did looked like so much fun. We are glad you enjoyed yourself with us. Hope you’ll come over to this lovely part of France again soon.
