Interaction with guests
Many of our guests have stayed before but if you are new to Rigal you will find that you will receive a warm welcome along with a bottle of local wine and some freshly laid free range eggs. We visit the farm in the morning to feed the animals and you are invited to join us to feed, stroke and get to know the animals. During this time we are on hand to recommend places of interest to visit, make restaurant reservations for you or just to answer any questions you have or sort out any problems. We pop round in the evening to close the animals away, if you want to chat we are available, if privacy is what you are looking for there are plenty of quiet places to relax and unwind.

We had such a lovely time last year we have booked again for this June. Chris and Jacky are such excellent hosts and it really does feel like it comes so natural to them. Both children said 'best holiday ever'. Enough said :-)

There is so much to visit on our doorstep. The local village boasts the ruins of the oldest castle keep in France, honey coloured houses and pretty roof lines. There are local fetes and fayres in the summer and medieval fayres at Issigeac and Cadouin during July and August. Every Thursday there is a huge market in Lalinde all year round with wonderful fresh produce, ( the area is famed for its strawberries and the olives are delicious) and interesting local goods. The area is wooded which makes for wonderful walking and cycling along shaded paths.
