This is a simply magnificent place. The site was beautiful. The staff could not have been more enthusiastic, more warm, more helpful. The food was magnificent. Eric and Odile's, the proprietors, were especially welcoming and helpful, not only in describing the details of the meals (which were superb) but also in helping us with the rest of our itinerary. This is a hotel to go out ofyour way for. We intend to come back.
