Quelle réhabilitation réussie ! Ces chambres-grottes sont en total accord avec le lieu et son histoire et sont en plus extrêmement confortables. L'équipe à l'accueil est jeune et dynamique et il est très facile de leur demander conseil et de l'aide pour une réservation. Mention spéciale pour le petit-déjeuner qui est certainement l'un des meilleurs du séjour.
