Had a great time, fabulous weather for late October! Lots of hot water and a comfy bed. Spacious with a rooftop terrace, Very rustic .Phillipe and his wife are very welcoming.The only downside for us was the 2 sets of church bells that chime on the hour all night.Very cheap bus fares only 1 euro per journey and good walks to the next villages.
Before we set off and in the months leading up to our break, I was very happy with the level of contact we had with the owners. Kay graciously and unsolicited provided plenty of details about the area, things to do and see and made some recommendations of what to do too.
We arrived on a blazing hot Saturday afternoon in August, on the slopes of the mountains. As we drove through the very narrow winding streets of Rigarda admiring the houses, we rounded a corner to a beautiful, peaceful, planted up paved area next to the house. We were impressed. The setting was superb, the house is sympathetically modernised but keeps features of the older house. It was immaculately clean throughout too. Every room has a bathroom to itself and we never felt in each others pockets. The kitchen was well equipped and had a good store of dry goods, tea and coffee for guests. Plenty of crockery and cooking equipment to help cater over the week. Washing and drying facilities too.
We spent some relaxing afternoons on the patio, enjoying meals and sunbathing.
The local area has plenty to visit, it is not too far from the coast and if you are willing to drive there is much to be explored locally. Villefranche De confluent is close and is also near an underground grotto. The grotto was wonderfully cool in the summer and very popular!
We also found the neighbours welcoming and spent an evening in conversation (in our rudimentary French) with them and the mayor, enjoying a beer.
A splendid place, as a base, to enjoy our holiday at. We would definitely come again.
