We were the first English guests and were made to feel very welcome. The overall site was lovely and if you like the none main stream not so touristy place then this is for you. Main language is French obviously but even so we managed to communicate fine as a few staff members also spoke English. We do recommend this place to others looking for a nice, quieter family, true French experience. Many thanks
