This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Trés bien situé, à côté d'un grand parc, à 10 mn de marche du centre. Nous avons pu garer notre voiture gratuitement à 15 mn de marche.
Concernant l'auberge, tout était parfait pour nous, 2 cuisnes très sympas et bien équipées, véranda et petit jardin. Chambre agréable, la nôtre était sous les toits, donc un peu trop chaud quand il y a du soleil.
Trés agréablement surpris, à recommander

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The staff was very friendly and everything was very clean. We were thrilled to find a TV in the room as well! The location is a little out of the way (if you on foot with a backpack) but it's near a beautiful park. Overall, we were extremely pleased.
