Outstanding
  • We had a wonderful stay on top of a hill with all the comforts of home.
    A breathtaking view, a pleasant breeze, beautiful starry nights, ...
    A perfect logistics of Laëtitia and an excellent reception of Mario who transmits us his love of the nature and his passion for the manna. We enjoyed ourselves.
