Le cadre est réellement magnifique, vue sur le lac depuis la chambre (pas toutes les chambres), petit déjeuner à l'extérieur (vue sur le lac). Un coin détente est à disposition, avec vue sur le lac aussi, par contre, il est fort dommageable de ne pas pouvoir en profiter au-delà d'une certaine heure, surtout par ces périodes de chaleur où l'on ne trouve un peu de fraîcheur que dehors en pleine nuit : un membre du staff dort en caravane juste à côté et ne connaît pas les boules Quiès apparemment.

It's a bit far from the station, but a nice walk nonetheless, and a very nice spot with good views. Too many sugary options at breakfast (not enough non-sugary alternatives)
