Shhh!! I do not want to rate this lovely hotel too highly as like a previous reviewer I would rather keep it a secret, but I have to. This was our 2nd hotel out of 3 that we stayed on our recent holiday in France. We stayed here for 3 nights and our only regret was that it was a pity we hadn't forgone the final hotel, and stayed put here. First of all I would point out that I am extremely critical and am hard to please so for me to leave this sort of review is a first.
There are only 16 rooms, and ours was in the new block of 8. From the outside this new block is not as attractive as the original block, but once inside our room the first thing you saw was the fantastic view of the lake (which all the rooms have). It was spacious, very clean and very nicely but plainly decorated with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. We had a large wet room with a his and hers sink complete with very modern taps, and it appeared that no expense had been spared. We were on the ground floor and outside the patio doors was a little undercover sitting area with table and chairs and then in front was a patio area complete with 2 sun loungers. My only small issue was for some reason I didn't find the bed very comfortable.
The pool was lovely, again overlooking the lake and at one end some quality all weather rattan furniture, which gave it a very Mediterranean look and the whole look and feel of the place oozed quality.
The restaurant was superb, again with each table having a view of the lake. It was tastefully decorated and the food did not disappoint, and was beautifully presented and served and of very good value. I have to say that the pork I had one night, was the best piece of pork that I have ever tasted, and that is saying something.
The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, and at this hotel you do get personal service.
We never go back to any hotel again, but out of all the hotels we have stayed in all over the World, this is one we would want to visit again. If you want peace and tranquility with personal service and a super restaurant, then this super family run hotel would be hard to beat and why it is only rated a 3 star is hard to believe. What more can I say about this little gem and apart from the mattress on the bed, I wouldn't change a thing.
