Personnel extraordinaire. Prix très exagéré

Par rapport au prix payés la qualité de l’installation laisse à désirer. L’hébergement et la location sont agréables mais ne justifient absolument pas des tarifs aussi exagérés aussi bien pour la nourriture que les boissons. Le bon côté est le professionnalisme et la gentillesse extrême du personnel qui rende votre séjour très agréable et à faire passer la pilule des tarifs exorbitants. Je ne le referais probablement pas ou alors pour un tarif au moins 30% inférieur.
