Unser Aufenthalt mit der Familie war hervorragend. Das Personal ist kommunikativ und sehr hilfsbereit. Sehr positiv empfanden wir die Möglichkeit selbst kochen zu können und dürfen. Der Aufenthalt war sehr angenehm und wir werden sicher wieder kommen.

Cuisine minuscule, peu pratique et "surchauffée " Auberge peu fonctionnelle et mal optimisée 4 wc / 4 douches pour 2 étages ?! Personnel courtois mais peu serviable J'ai cru comprendre que des travaux étaient déjà prévu. J'espère que cela sera fait de manière intelligente. Bon courage, ça ne peut être que mieux 😊

Nous sommes arrivés de nuit et avons eu du mal à trouver l'auberge dans son bel emplacement, je ne sais pas s'il y a une pancarte sur le bord de la route, si non, ça serait bien. Bon point de départ pour de nombreuses randonnées. Côté douches plus de patères seraient pratiques pour accrocher les vêtements. La nuit fut bonne. Difficiles de juger les pratiques environnementales en étant resté une nuit.
