Don't let the airfoils put you off you look over it, its for gliders and we never heard a thing the week we were there. Muriel and Richard were very helpful with the booking despite the language barrier. Great holiday chalet in a nice location

Well located clean and recently refurbished apartment. Owner Christophe was really helpful when we had questions and would definitely recommend to others to come and stay. Would be a great base for a cycling holiday in the region
