C'était vraiment super!

Le site, le guide, Nicolas qui nous a accompagné et fait partager sa passion et son savoir, l'hôtel et le restaurant, tout était parfait. Il nous a juste manqué un brin de soleil et de chaleur mais la bonne humeur et le sens du partage était au rdv, c'était bien là le principal.

c'est top , génial , super

We, durant lequel, Nous avons rencontré des gens supers, des collègues très sympas, des prestataires (sur place) passionnés, "vrais" et sérieux (surtout sur la "Cabane") toujours très attentifs à notre bien être, notre sécurité, et au plaisir de notre découverte de ce petit coin de paradis , dans un endroit hors du commun, où nous avons eu l'impression d' être coupés du monde dans le respect de la nature et dans un esprit de développement durable très poussé

des gens tout simplement biens, qui nous ont permis de passer un we enrichissant, dépaysant, qu'il ne fallait rater sous aucun prétexte.
A REFAIRE, sans hésiter !!
