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.
