We stayed at Relais de L'Alsou for 3 days en nights. The breakfast was delicious with homemade bread and marmalade. The garden was very beautiful with a great swimming pool and jacuzzi. An ideal place for rest, reading, good food and lots of comfort. Very nice couple who runs the place.

A new-build project that was completed 2-3 years ago offering so much of the best of what is contemporary, but retaining enough in the building materials and furniture to feel congruent with the timeless feel of the valley and surrounding countryside.
