“Exceptionally tasteful and comfortable French townhouse.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Seven of us stayed in this beautifully restored house for 4 nights. It was comfortable (most comfortable beds ever!) , warm and very well equipped, in the heart of an authentic French village. It was well placed to visit the champagne towns of Epernay and Reims. All in all we had a wonderful time. Many thanks to Isabelle.

“Perfect base for the Champagne region”
Reviewed 11 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We have just come back from a week in Champagne, staying in La Maison du Clos Rigaux in Dormans. We could not fault this town house in any way. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. The weather was fabulous so we were able to make good use of the small garden and terrace.

Dormans is a small town on the Marne, well placed for Reims and Epernay, the main champagne towns, as well as being just over ah hour from Paris. Dormans itself has a small chateau (privately owned I think and not open to the public) and, behind it, a stunning memorial to those who died in the two battles of the Marne in WW1 - well worth a visit.

Just opposite the house is a small and typically French bar - Le Champenois - if you are willing to give your French a go, pop in for a beer or glass of champagne!

“Better than imagined”
Reviewed 9 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This was our second trip to the champagne region. The accomodations were far better than imagined. Our host, Isabelle, was very helpful and accomodating from the very beginning. The house was beautiful, well furnished with modern conveniences. After long days of champagne tasting, it was the perfect place to relax. We cooked almost every night. The house is centered in the village of Dormans, with shops, bakeries and restaurants only a short walk away. We highly recommend this rental.

“Designer Gem in the middle of Champagne”
Reviewed 16 October 2012 for a stay in October 2011
2
people found this review helpful

A lovely renovated gem in the middle of this quaint village in the middle of Champagne. Excellent location to visit all the region has to offer. A large grocery store within minutes of the house makes cooking dinner in the well equipped kitchen very easy, not to mention allowing you to fully enjoy the outdoor terrace for dinner and drinks. The interior decor was fabulous and done to perfection. Communication with the owner was easy and quick responses when setting up the reservation. Six of us stayed in this house very comfortably, which makes this an extreme value for your stay in Champagne. I can't recommend Clos Rigaux enough and we are actually trying to decide when we can go back again for another visit.
