    ***RICA'S TABLE
    We design our RICA table with a holistic approach, offering a plant-based cuisine inspired by our passion for gastronomy and world flavors.
    We propose honest, conscious and locavore ingredients. We work with small independent producers whenever possible.
    Authentic products, just as nature intended, no shortcuts, no additives, no compromises.
    RICA was born from our desire to offer gourmet food at the heart of our residence as an epicurean celebration of the Art of Living. To make every day count, from our first cup.

    ***SUNSET TAPAS
    RICA offers you an authentic experience, you can contemplate a unique sunset, where the place becomes even more magical for the greatest happiness of our visitors. The experience can become very moving when you see the sky turn into a jumble of orange, gold and pink, to end in a glittering of stars. With family, friends or lovers, the concept is simple, come with your drinks, we concoct delicious tapas for our beautiful sunset. We offer you a service where luxury is lived in all simplicity!


    ***CHEF AT HOME BY RESERVATION
    Our chefs demand to revisit traditional cuisine and ingredients with a specific goal of discovering ways in which they can build cross-cultural bridges. Local flavors and ancestral practices meet innovation and technique, overcoming an often homogenized definition of "Caledonian food" to reinvent a new wave of modern world cuisine.

    ***RETREATS AND WORKSHOPS
    We offer, with our holistic providers, workshops around self-knowledge and personal growth.
    Immersed in this idyllic environment, the workshops are for people in search of renewal, interiority, serenity, creativity, and novelty.
    Whether it is meditation, yoga, spiritual retreat, artistic creation, energetic practices... these stays allow you to reconnect with yourself, with others and with nature. It is an ideal place to write a story, with your feet in the water!
    A timeless parenthesis to live in interiority and openness.
    RICA RESIDENCE offers an unique and privileged setting for all activities related to human accompaniment, resourcing and transformation. The place invites everyone to grow together and live the proposed experience in interiority and openness.
    The lush garden and the dominant view of the sea contribute to moments of peace and magic. Spaces for meditation and contemplation are found throughout the residence.
