Alain and Nathalie are amazing hosts at their comfortable, warm, inviting, clean and very functional hostel/B. and B. It was the perfect place to both begin our time on the island and to stay the morning before heading home on the early ferry from South Bay. We stayed in the two different private rooms as we were there on two separate evenings. Both beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was yummy and had many gluten free options. I loved the hostel part as we had the opportunity to meet different travellers and share wine/treats and stories. The Auberge is located just up the road from the beach, the Fish and Chips stand and around the corner from a lovely, upscale restaurant and the gas station where Sandy welded our rusting tailpipe for $40.00. The hosts at the Auberge and generous, knowledgeable, environmentally friendly and they care about the Island and their guests. We are hoping to return next summer.
