This modern hotel built in March 2000 is a small facility carefully maintained. All along its length and under the high ceiling, the lobby opens as a large common area, a place for meetings in the comfortable sofas, games at the billard tables or having coffee on the mezzanine. Upstairs, there is a small lobby pleasantly welcoming tourists. Behind the building, you can discover a space quite cramped and devoted to the 115 m² heated swimming pool with a smaller pool for kids. On each side, two more buildings expand the main structure. A few touches of greenery decorate the hotel.
