Halte sur le chemin du Piémont
Review by: Christian PUJOL, Mai 28 2014 11:30AM
Etape appréciée sur le chemin du Piémont par son emplacement, la qualité de l'accueil, de l'hébergement et de la restauration. Beaucoup d'attention à l'autre, à son bien être.
Après une bonne journée de marche, un bel havre de confort et de sérénité.
