Best accomodation we`ve ever had!!!
We`ve spend 7 nights at Lou Rigau in May 2012. During this week we enjoyed the comfortable room (which is very, very clean) and the lovely breakfast. Lou Rigau is situated near the motorway (not on the right side of the motorway near to Orange how it is marked in the map - you will find it on the left side of the motorway - so in the west) which makes it easy and fast to go everywhere. But despite the closeness to the motorway it is very calm and you can sleep by opened window and spend some time at the pool to relax in the sun. The house itself is very provencal and has a nice garden with a nice and very clean pool (which we couldn`t use because of the bad weather : -(). There you can also find a fridge for storing and cooling drinks or something else as well as crockery and barbecue which can be used by the guests. In front of the house there are 2 car parks. Myriam and Christian are offering 2 rooms: The Cinema which is the smaller room for 2 people and the Garance which is the bigger one for 2 or 3 people. This is also the room in which we stayed. The room is lovely decorated and the bathroom is very clean and comfortable and this is also true for the beds. Myriam is offering the possibility to cook tea and as we arrived she gave us a bottle of provencal red wine which tasted very good (as well as nougat). Most memorable is the breakfast: Myriam really did a great job in preparing it: It consists of coffee (tee or chocolate), juice, croissants, baguette, butter and home made provencal jam (really delicious) and something special (changed every day) like smoothies, a cake, cheese and ham, fruits and so on. As you are very hungry in the morning you will NOT be disappointed because it is more than enough to eat!!! Conclusion: If you love cats, this is the right accomodation for you!!! Myriam and Christian`s 4 cats always called our attention to pet them! They are lovely indeed. The rooms are highly comfortable and clean and the breakfast is delicious. It is calm and if you want to relax a little bit it is the right place to be. We really can advise Lou Rigau also because of the friendly atmosphere the owners are creating! So when staying in Orange, you have to stay at Lou Rigau for more than 1 night! We will come back!!! Thanks for all Myriam and Christian.
