Patrice and Alexandra are very, very nice people, and very gracious hosts. Their property in the authentic and interesting hamlet of Saint Delmas has lots of character. It is great to start on fantastic hikes right from "home". However, we found the rooms in the outhouse where we stayed quite basic indeed. Investments in new beds and perhaps a few other furnishings would already go a long way to make the stay more comfortable. We felt the dinners to be a bit long-winded (perhaps our limited command of french contributed to this), and the quality of the dishes did not live up to our expectations (perhaps our tastes are different than those of most other trip advisor reviewers; being a vegetarian did not make it any easier). You can arrange to skip dinner and get a reduced price. All in all, if you do not mind a very basic room, and like "homestyle cooking" (as opposed to "french cuisine"), you can have a wonderful stay with Patrice and Alexandra in a beautiful and very peaceful mountain setting.
