MARJORIE B. / France / August, 2019
Endroit et vue magnifique, excellent accueil, très bonne cuisine, décoration des chambres raffinées. Je recommande cet hotel.

Serge D. / France / September, 2018
Bonjour, Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour chez vous, l'accueil avec Monica est inoubliable, le personnel est parfait, les chambres un peu petite mais avec tellement de charme, le seul inconvénient c'est l'accès et le parking. Le séjour était parfait une adresse à retenir pour ceux qui aiment la tranquillité.

Loic P. / France / July, 2017
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Le village est très bien situé pour visiter l'est de l'île. La vue depuis l'hôtel est superbe. Notre chambre double avec terrasse était parfaite, décorée avec soin. L'équipe de l'hôtel est attentionnée. Très agréable espace commun autour d'une petite piscine.
