Beautiful views, very friendly staff and excellent chefs. Loved the way we were introduced to the chefs in the kitchen on our arrival and were invited to bob in at anytime. The food was excellent, although fourteen guests dining on one table was not ideal, fine while there was only six or so.
However the bedrooms were very ordinary, not large and bathrooms rather tired, not the standard one would expect from a Relais & Chateaux.
