It's a great size for 2 people, well equipped, clean and it just amazing surroundings. We used it as our base for hiking for 5 days and our starting points for the hikes were in easy reach. There are also plenty of places to buy regional products. It was super easy to communicate with Isabelle and although we never met her we felt welcomed and looked after by her friend Magalie. We would definitely recommend this place!!!

Perfect for midnight star gazing. The property has every facility you would need for hot or cold weather. The stunning scenery and area make it impossible not to relax! The property is maintained to a high quality and the owners were a pleasure to deal with in every way. We loved it so much we are booked for next year - can't wait!
