Just a short hop from the lovely town of Pesenas this hotel has come under the influence of two rugby fans; one supporting Toulon (madame) the other half shouting for Clermont Auvergne and this weekend they were due to meet in the Heinekin Cup final!! Being a Munster fan I was not too impressed at the preparatory advertisement for this event as we checked in, as my team were the ones that lost to Clermont in the semi-finals but it did give me some leverage.
On arrival we a bit perturbed to see the gate to the hotel locked against us but as we hesitated outside the gate Monsieur showed up , walking his dog and opened the gate and bade us welcome. We were shown to our small but perfectly formed room and given the low down on the facilities, times of events etc.
Outside there was ample (just) parking, a very nice pool area and indeed (though we were warned it was cold) a nice plunge pool which wasn't as cold as promised. The area is well sheltered so the cold wind that was cutting through was without effect and we enjoyed a spot of sun worship.
The food in the evening and at breakfast was good with some local items to keep one interested. Most of the wines on the wines list came from a 5 mile radius and were very acceptable.
Sleep quality was OK for a standard sized bed and the en-suite shower room was compact. Toiletries were basic and the towels adequate. The was no razor socket.
The TV was a flatscreen affair with French channels.
The hosts were charming and very entertaining and we had a good chat about the upcoming match which was due to divide the household. It is probably as well that Madame's team won but the closeness of the outcome should have ensured matrimonial harmony.
We wish them well and would enjoy renewing our acquaintance in the future.
