This is an old building in the village with five large rooms full of weird old furniture (one room even has a large sun terrace outside). It's a bit eccentric, but one of our favourites. Free Wi-Fi. Note that one room has no air-conditioning. There is a walled courtyard where you can eat in summer, and the food is good and interesting. They also have a new building outside the village, with swimming pool etc., but we like the charm and friendliness of the main hotel.

Useful information: Rooms €64-€72 (low season - telephone for high season). Prices include breakfast; half board available. Menus €14 (lunch in the Brasserie)-€35. Restaurant closed Sunday evenings, Mondays and Wednesday lunchtimes. Closed mid-October to mid-November and over Christmas.
