Lovely hotel with comfortable rooms, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We were in the building across from the mill house and the steps were steep and rather treacherous, which was the only downside. The hotel parking is in an adjoining cave and very convenient.
The restaurant had various fixed menus (a la degustation) and a la carte as well. The food was sublime and the service from the front of house was fantastic. The meals and wine were not cheap but were good value.

about 2 min and could see the church. It was about 1.5 km from where we had
asked the old man. Whew!
When we arrived, we were greeted by the proprietor, who

It's also on the bars of the Donne River and very picturesque. It was more crowded with tourists and more kitschy but still nice as most of the tourists were French and the afternoon was warm and drowsy. We ended up in a little street bar and had a Grimberger Blond ...
