Laszlo Bukk, a Hungarian-born, Swiss-trained hotelier, and his Breton wife, whose talents are artistic, made an accomplished team. In a labour of love, they transformed this 14thC mas into a delightful, welcoming hotel – blending past and present and endowing it with their own very personal aura. Now, Stephane Bukk with his wife, Amparo, follows in his parents’ footsteps in running the place.             
    The massive warm stone structure overlooks the fast-flowing River Tech – a tiny path brings you down to a stretch between two bends where the clear water looks almost still – an unspoiled natural sanctuary. A terrace beside the house leads down to a delightfully uncomplicated garden with lawn and swimming pool, mature trees and flowering shrubs.
    Bedrooms are practical, immaculately kept and all have either a terrace or a small private garden. The atmosphere in the public rooms is informal and relaxed, so guests feel very much at home in them.
    Light meals are served if ordered in advance. Alternatively, there is a choice of restaurants within 2 km of the hotel, some within a three-minute walk. As a recent guest points out, it is essential to have a car whilst staying here. Reports welcome.
