Relaxing place in the middle of nowhere, top service, the cheapest room that we had was both beautiful and confortable. The dinner was an experience in itself - all six dishes were exceptional!
Don't forget to ask for full hot breakfast, which is included. In our case the waiter proposed bread, croissants, preserves, yogourt and tea/coffee without offering anything else, so we thought they did not have any eggs or cheese, the place is remote, but as it happens they do, but you have to ask.
Unfortunately, no shower curtain. And do not take "house" champagne for aperitif by the glass - it's average, expensive and was served almost warm. For the same price they have Billecart-Salmon by the glass on the wine list, I wonder why we have not been offered it.
The place is not cheap, but worth the money. Overall, it is highly recommended. The little negatives have not spoiled the experience. The food is amazing, I have to say it again.
