This is certainly one of the more unusual hotels I have visited, although that is not to say it was all bad. It is billed as a 4 star hotel which it is, at least in part. The accommodation is in individual huts (rather like the trulli in sounthern Italy). The bedrooms are of a reasonable size, but the shower/toilet/handbasin space (all linked) is decidedly small. On the other hand the decor and facilities were nicely done although there were none of the accoutrements that one expects these days from a 4 star establishment (water, slippers, gowns etc). The environs of the hotel are beautiful and well kept. I was there for a business meeting but I can imagine being very bored if I was not interested in horse riding, there is not much else to do for miles around. The biggest negative for me was the restaurant. The kitchen was very mediocre and for France, I thought the food was poor. The staff were friendly and helpful. So all in all a mixed bag; an unusual and attractive location to get away from it all. but don't expect the usual facilities of a 4 star hotel.
