Auberge très agréable, à 5 minutes de la plage. Personnel accueillant, plein de bons conseils et bons plans. Petit moins bien pour la salle de bain avec une douche en mauvaise état, pas pratique d'utilisation.

Cozy atmosphere and good location. Breakfast was nice. Shower needs some revision (loose panels, clogged drain). Lock on the room door was broken.

Convenience location, friendly staff. The cottage is nice, clean and warm. But the hot water supply in bathroom is very poor, understand that it takes time to boil the water when it is used up, but it only supported two showers, and we waited for at least 2 hours, still no hot water, we need to take a cold shower.

Good place to stay, breakfast has some local flavored (smoked trout), but the staff wasn't very knowledgeable about hiking trails, except for the most basic. Friendly.
