Vraiment excellente auberge en tous points! L'accès est juste une peu compliqué et manque peut-être d'indications, car sur cette petite route où il est impossible de croiser un autre véhicule, on se sait vraiment pas où l'on arrive!!!

Great location for nice walks in the countryside. Friendly staff and lovely surroundings.

We enjoyed this stay because of the location ( environs) and the historic features retained in the hostel. We saw heaps of pheasants, 4 deer in a group, and numerous squirrels which for us was very pleasing. Directions to the hostel were hard to find and the last hairpin bend was a bit disconcerting.
