The overwhelming impression of this hotel is that it is run with heartfelt love - love for the local area, and above all love for the hotel. The hosts are charming, unassuming, extremely helpful people who clearly love what they are doing, and want you to love your stay with them. The hotel is positioned at about 1400m, a minute's drive from a quiet mountain road. There are 360-degree views over a range of picturesque features: a tiny and very pretty village, a deep valley, forested hillsides, and snowcapped peaks in the distance. We took two rooms for ourselves and our family (standard rooms on the entrance floor), which had lovely views from the windows. The location is idyllic, tranquil and beautiful. The hotel has a terraced garden with many wonderful surprises (sculptures, chairs and tables hidden in well-chosen viewpoints), and you could spend relaxing hours here. The rooms were clean, comfortable and surprisingly spacious. Each is uniquely themed which adds to the atmosphere. Breakfast and dinner were tasty, plentiful, and made very prominent use of local ingredients and local wines. Dinner and the wine list were, in our opinion, extremely good value. The hosts are wonderful. They are friendly and helpful - we were given excellent advice about things to do in the area and had great days out based on their advice. The local area is stunning, and compared with similar areas in France and Switzerland, remarkably uncrowded (we stayed in mid July). Very highly recommended.
