Nous n'étions de passage que pour une seule nuit et nous avons passé un très bon moment. L'accueil de Denis et Marie-France est très chaleureux et pleins de bons conseils sur la région. La piscine est agréable et nous avons apprécié le petit déjeuner grandiose fait maison. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
