Appréciations pour La Vieille Distillerie, Le Tatre:

Pour une nuit
Review by: Rémy et Agnès , Sep 22 2019 7:27PM
La maîtresse de maison nous a acceptés au pied levé en lieu et place d'une collègue défaillante.
L'accueil, la chambre, la SDB, le petit déjeuner... c'est simple et très correct. Nous recommandons sans réserve. La maîtresse de maison d'origine britanique est très sympathique, à l'écoute.
