The mountain house by the village church has been exquisitely revived, and you feel welcome the moment you enter. Fresh oak, spruce and larch abound, many features have been preserved and all is cosy and draft-free. Catherine and Thierry love to speak English and do bountiful table d’hotes at the long table, or on the terrace in summer (the gardens are sheer delight). She is a chef and pâtissier, produces for local shops in her shining new bakery and gives courses in the large spotless kitchen, he is proud possessor of a fleet of 2CVs. Tour the mountains with the roof down… return to log fires, delicious beds, drenching showers. Bliss.
