Situated right in the historic centre of Tournus and yet within walking distance of the banks of the Saone. A lovely base from which to explore the region.

Les lits sont confortables et reposants. Belle vue de la piscine. Je recommande fortement et j'espère y retourner plus longuement. Encore merci pour le séjour.
