Coventiently situated on the main road away from the coast, the Relais is an interesting mix of a fairly utilitarian hotel with an outstanding restaurant. It's pretty isolated, but has plenty of room around it to relax after a long jorney. The rooms are a reasonable size, but fairly dull. However, ours had a balcony overlooking the forest which made up for it. We had the (smallish) swimming pool to ourselves and all the sunloungers had clean cushions, and obvously had been well maintained.
The food in the restaurant was excellent, and worthy of a visit on its own merit. Each course was well prepared and presented, and the flavours excellent. The accompanying wine was also very good. Breakfast was OK, but nothing special.
