Perfect for cycling and walking, just 5 mins walk from the lake with fishing, boating and many picnic areas, also the hiring of rowiing boats and pedalos. Chez Marthe is just 5 mins drive from the up and coming local wine growing area, which has recently received an upgrade to AOC - follow the wine route to discover and taste at the many producers.More
