About Laura Deans

We are a family of 5, living in Dorset since 2007. Previously we lived in France for ten years. Our three children were born in France. We bought Maison Rigabert as a ruin in 2001. Whilst living in our home in Blousson Serian, we renovated Maison Ribabert, until it was ready to use as a holiday home in 2006.

Laura Deans purchased this house in 2001

Why Laura Deans chose Marciac

We bought Maison Rigabert, as it had an amazing view of the Pyrenees, the view we had always dreamed of having.

What makes this house unique

Maison Rigabert is competely private and peaceful. It is surrounded by fields and we don't have any neighbours. This is perfect for the odd party or BBQ and when you want to play loud jazz music!

Enjoyable Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We found this property to be everthing we were looking for.
It was clean well equiped with excellent space and accomodation. You need a car to get around but the location of this property far out weighed any hassle in driving.
We look forward to re-booking next year.

Wonderful House, Wonderful Holiday!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic house! Beautifully and sensitively restored, everything you need, comfy and stylish rooms and a fabulous pool for relaxing in when it got too hot!

Everything was well maintained including the lovely garden (the smell of lavender just heavenly) and our communication with the owner was good throughout.

The nearby town of Marciac was lovely: there are great local markets for the much needed good food and drink and if we needed to cool down we were near to the beautiful mountains.

Great place for both adults and families. Really relaxing and a great place to chill out and enjoy the good local food and wine!

Holiday in Maison Rigabert

  • 5 of 5
The two week holiday in Maison Rigabert was delightful. It was peaceful (no neighbours), relaxing and with the good weather, we enjoyed eating out by the pool in the evenings, watching the lovely sunsets. (We) consisted of two kids, two adults and two pensioners and we all enjoyed the holiday in different ways i.e. my parents found it relaxing, my partner and I found the views fantastic and the place itself interesting,The kids enjoyed the pool. The villa itself was the best we've stayed in and we've stayed in quite a lot. I would recommend eating out at the boat in Marciac (fantastic food and very reasonably priced) or the restaurant in Tuillac (bit more expensive but lovely food). Auch was a lovely place especially the cathedral and strongly recommend going on the historic route. We ventured up to the pyrenees and took a cable car up the highest peak (recommend doing this in Sept as very hazy August). All in all, an excellent holiday and would strongly recommend it.

Paradise in the Gers

  • 5 of 5
If you really look for a home away from home, you love the Gers as much as we do, you want gorgeous views, the feeling to be on your own island of calm and beauty with stunning 360 degree views (including of the Pyrenees) and a great pool, yet close enough to the main road to Marciac and Tillac for shopping and entertainment, this is THE place to be. We couldn't have wished for a better equipped kitchen, more room, more comfortable beds or more top notch entertainment equipment (TV, satellite, DVD, hifi), let alone tasteful decoration in a warm and charming setting. Rigabert rocks and we love it. So did the kids (7, 15 and 17) and our guests. We'll be back!

Bad post holiday experience

  • 1 of 5
Whilst the house is lovely and set in beautiful countryside the whole trip was spoilt by the handling of the rental deposit.

Our deposit cheque was cashed more than 2 weeks after our stay with no notice. It was not until my bank statement was received that I knew it had been cashed, a whole month after our stay. The reason given when I contacted the owner was that excessive cleaning was needed at the end of the stay. However, one would have expected the cleaning that was supposedly needed should have been included in the end of clean allowance which was supposedly part of the rental cost. When clairifcation of both the cleaning rates and what is included in the end of clean stay was sought no answer was given.

The balance of the deposit (the additional charge was reduced but was still excessive) was finally transferred back to me 44 days after our holiday had finished.

We, like others before us, complained about the chipped and cracked crockery and we have been informed that these have been replaced with new items for next year. All good news for future renters.

When we arrived we found that the master bedroom with the en suite was not made up and we can only assume that this was an attempt to reduce the end of clean cost or to reduce the effort required by the cleaners. Despite several requests no reason was given for the room not being available.

All in all the enduring memories wil be of conflict over the deposit rather than fond memories or what should have been a happy time.

I will be intrigues to see if this review is posted.

Owner's Response: I would like to thank you for your review.

It is the case that Maison Rigabert is a lovely house, in an amazing location. We spent a wonderful week there, ourselves during August, admiring our view, dipping in and out of the pool, benefiting from the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside. We have had many very happy guests at Maison Rigabert. Therefore I feel sorry that this guest felt he did not find things as they should be; he does himself admit that his memories were fond, and that only the deposit issue went on to mar his view. We have taken on board our reviews and have dealt with issues raised.

We have been renting property in France since 1997 and have only cashed a deposit cheque three times; I believe our contract to be very clear and fare to both ourselves and our guests. I apologised to our guest for the delay in cashing his cheque and explained that we had to meet with our cleaners and have a full run down before making this decision.

The further delay in transferring the money back to our guest occurred because of his refusal to agree a sum of contribution.
