About the innkeepers

We changed life in 1992 to leave the 'rat race' as we call it at the time. We wanted to share our lives with our guests, as we perfectly realized. We had the chance to travel without moving from home by having the privilege to host in our House more than 50 nationalities in 20 years of activity. We love riding, motorcycling, mountain biking the basque pelota, the jeu de paume, music theater, cinema. We are lovers of nature.

Signature Dish

confit of Duck House
It is made to the old and especially prepared winter with ducks raised grain. Probably the only confit prepared by an Irish!
