The matresses had had their best day and were very uncomfortable. It was impossible to take a shower (only 5 sec. of water with each time you pushed the button and no way to change the temperature)!

Nous avons aimé le cadre et la tranquilité' l auberge en elle même et la proximité des espaces de détente (restaurant, commerce et activités) Nous avons visité les monuments proches à pieds' et la promenade au bord de l'eau. Pour une journée de séjour, ce fut parfait. Nous avons aussi apprécié le calme et la tranquilité du personnel et des autres résidents Blaise donnart
