A really special and unique place. Gina and Fernand are a delight and so natural and very welcoming. The accommodation is quirky,charming and very comfortable.The setting in the mountains is beautiful and really peaceful with wonderful hikes into the mountains. The "cherry on the top" (excuse the pun) is the exceptional cuisine perfectly and caringly prepared by Fernand and proudly served by charming Gina. Altogether a weekend we shall always remember !

We only spent one night, but how we wished we had stayed longer. Gina and Ferdinand are wonderful hosts.They treated us as family and served us unusual and delicious culinary delights. The setting is beautiful and the rooms tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We loved the little extra touches, lavender with the towels, olives and nuts left in our room to sample. We will definitely be back.
