This hotel is in a small village and and had so much character...there is a center courtyard where the carriages brought guests in the 1700's...rooms are lovely although one must be careful of the beams throughout. As mentioned by other guests a kettle and a fridge would have been nice. Very nice bathrooms with modern amenities, towel warmer and hair dryer. Dinner was very good but wine was only available by the bottle, expensive and not that good. Breakfast offered a nice selection of fruit, pastries, cheese and cold meats.
The local market was open the morning we departed and was fun to visit.
