We had booked to stay for 2 nights at this Auberge but only managed one. On arrival the hotel looks a little tired and the elderly owners seem to have let things slip a little. Cracked and uneven paving slabs around the pool (dangerous for small children), a wasps nest in the trees near the enterance, weeds not attended to, dirty outdoor furniture.
Our room was small but perfectly formed. The light in the toilet didnt work and there was an old musty smell. Other than this the room was fine.
At around 4am a cockeral started crowing literally right outside the room. This continued (every 10 seconds) until 8am when we went for breakfast.
Breakfast was pretty basic but ok - no fruit or cereal (I would have expected this for 8 euros each)
I mentioned the cockeral to the owner (it was hers) and asked to move to another room so I could get some sleep but she refused stating 'thats the countryside!' I don't mind animals noises but surely you would have the brains to not put poultry right outside someones window! Because of this we decided to leave.
