“Not my cup of tea”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Most of our group including my wife rather enjoyed the quirkiness of this place. I am afraid that I found it simply, and almost embarrassingly, crude. Wood floors fine, bare boards not. The hosts are very friendly and their children delightfully behaved. The big negative was that dinner was very late and long drawn out, and there was simply not enough to eat; we all had two miniscule pieces of meat, except for those who didn't manage to get any. This was followed by some excellent cheese but no desert. The village and surroundings are lovely, but I would definitely not stay at L'Etoile again.

This comment deserves an answer...
This monsiuer was a part of a group of walkers. They had rented all the rooms. On five rooms, two rooms are small and rustic (authentic) with old floors in larches. For the dinner, I made an error of quantity it is true what rarely arrives there is very often in more... This evening there, it was some duck breast and at the house, it is cheeses or harms(serves)... The rest of the group was very satisfied! I understands this Sir whom I thank because in the future, I would be more thoughtful in the quantities. Patrice.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

My girlfriend and I stayed with Patrice and Alexandra for two nights in late November. Patrice and Alexandra were very accommodating as we arrived unannounced in the mid afternoon, but they quickly offered a room to us. Talking over dinner with Patrice and Alexandra was a very pleasant and interesting experience, helping us to learn more about France and the area in general, while helping us practice a little French which was very helpful. Alexandra speaks English very well, and there were no issues with communication. Patrice and Alexandra have two children who added to the charm and fun of the experience. The dinners we had were varied, healthy, and tasty. There are hiking trails going into the mountains starting a minutes walk from their house, and the Saint-Delmas-le-Savage has a charm of its own. I would love to go back in the spring or summer, as I imagine the mountains are that much more beautiful.
