The overall cleanliness was bad. Especially the kitchens were worse than disgusting - would never stay there again.

L'auberge était en mode hors saison, c'est à dire que nous étions plus ou moins seuls dans ce grand bâtiment bien équipé mais que le service était très réduit: piscine fermée, personnel absent et le nettoyage des communs n'avait pas été fait en fin de saison la semaine précédent notre arrivée. L'environnement immédiat et la vue sont superbes. Le couple tenancier sympathique.

La chambre était exiguë mais les parties communes sont vastes et bien équipées avec une belle vue sur les montagnes et un lac.
