Stayed for 2 nights in the middle of the week for business. The room was clean but very basic. Even though breakfast was paid for and I was the only guest at the B&B, the owner insisted that breakfast is only served from 07:00am. I had to be out by 7:00... I feel that a bit of flexibility will go...

The breakfast is very nice. The host got really good humanity and knowledge of the area. The area is very quiet but would advice guests to have a car for driving around. The honeymoon suite is spacious, bed big enough for 4 (only 2 people should occupy the room) and very comfortable.
