    Warm welcome at hotel Orson Welles. A delicious buffet in a beautiful setting. Compliment to the chef. Highly recommended. Good luck to the new owners of hotel Orson Welles. The lovely hostess Sigrid and the charming host Michel.

    I did not book the room in advance, just stopped and asked for the price which was reasonable and cheaper than on the internet. I have read the reviews about the hotel only after staying there and I can confirm than they are much worse...More
