“Perfect family holiday”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I am loathe to write this review because I like this place so much, I don't want to miss out because others have booked it first but not to do so would be unfair on the owners, who are extremely welcoming and have done a superb renovation of the estate!

This was our second stay in the gite. Last year as a first holiday with a baby, it was a revelation. So much baby equipment is provided by the owners you are able to travel very light, a huge plus given the proximity to Bergerac airport. It is quicker to get to the gite from Southampton than trying to get to Cornwall. The gite is comfortable, stylish, spacious and very child friendly. The log burner is a lovely bonus on an autumnal evening.

This year coming back with an active toddler, the grounds came into their own. Chickens to chase, a toy car to drive, a trampoline to burn off energy, a play area, horses to pet and a tractor to sit in meant a very happy little boy. The pool is lovely to relax by during naps and extremely safe with a secure gate and fence.

The local area is wonderful with lots of very nice restaurants and markets to visit.

So despite all of the above, please don't visit as we like it too much to miss out...

“Idyllic location for a happy holiday!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a truly wonderful holiday in this beautiful gite with our 6 children aged 1-12. The location is tranquil and beautiful with stunning views across the countryside. There is a lot to do in the area but our kids were so happy with the abundance of activities on the farm that we really didn't venture too far! They were in their element feeding the animals in the morning and between that and the gorgeous, clean pool, treehouse, climbing frame, trampoline and table tennis etc they were kept very well entertained.
The owners Chris and Jacky and their lovely girls were warm, friendly and welcoming and added to the whole experience. They have breathed life back into a beautiful old building and made it a really special place to stay.
We are very grateful to have stayed in such a fabulous place and have come home with memories to treasure.

“Perfect family holiday”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

What a treat! This was our second stay at the Rigal. We came last year with our 3 year old and 6 month old for a week and this year for 2 weeks with all of our family and so had both properties (the manoir and gite). Our familiy loved it as much as we did. The house is beautiful and the surrounding area unspoilt. We were able to relax and the kids had plenty to keep them entertained. This is really a baby/child friendly haven. They have cots, prams, baby gates, and all those things that make holidays relaxing for families. Our little ones loved all of the animals and would feed them every day and then bounce on the trampoline, hide in the tree house, swim and just generally run about. Local markets, places to eat and the hypermarket are a short drive. Chris and Jacky and their kids are lovely hosts. Would love to go back again.

“The Perfect French Holiday”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I stayed at the Gite for a week in July with my extended family, what I can say...it was an idyllic French holiday. The photographs do not do the accommodation justice, when we arrived at the gite it was much bigger than what we expected, Chris and Jacky (the owners) have sympathetically restored the building turning it into a beautiful French country home, it has been tastefully furnished and decorated throughout...we instantly felt at home. Outside there was plenty of green space to enjoy, along with a great salt water pool, which is bathed in sunshine throughout the day.

The surrounding landscape is breathtakingly beautiful; we enjoyed long country walks from our doorstep through the picturesque woodland north of the gite and cycled to the nearby villages with ease. The Gite is in a great location upon the Dordogne; we canoed down the river and, without having to drive for very long, stopped off in many towns and villages. We had the pleasure of visiting two typical French markets, where there was an abundance of fantastic local produce to stock up on; if you need it there was a large supermarket approx. 20mins away.

Chris and Jacky were the perfect hosts, on hand to help when we wanted; they were more than helpful giving us many recommendations for some restaurants in the region, one of which was a quaint little place close to the Gite which is run by a former Michelin star chef. To be honest most evenings we really just wanted to relax in the peaceful gardens beside the Gite with lots of cheese and wine, soaking in the tranquil atmosphere and gorgeous views.

My partner and I came away from the holiday totally refreshed and relaxed, staying at le Rigal was a complete inspiration and we shall certainly return soon, Chris and Jacky are such lovely people and have created something very special, they are so lucky to live there!!!
