Beautiful stay”

The bed, the bathroom and the decoration

We arrived quite late but the hostess was waiting for us even if she was ill (that's why she couldn't come to pick us up to the bus station). The bedrooms are like in a fairytale. Everything is extremely clean and cosy. I only regret not having been there longer. Thanks so much Mariane.
