Un vrai délice et le point culminant du voyage
J'ai été surclassé et on m'a installé dans une grande chambre moquettée, pour mon plus grand plaisir. Super endroit, personnel très serviable et le dîner sur place était un véritable délice. Il devrait avoir une étoile Michelin si ce n'est pas déjà le cas, au moins 1, peut-être 2, car la nourriture est à tomber par terre.

Escaliers de style château et pas de climatisation
Un ventilateur a été fourni en raison de l'absence de climatisation. Il n'y a pas d'ascenseur et nous avons dû porter des sacs lourds depuis le parking jusqu'aux escaliers sinueux de style château dans la tourelle.
