A note about the house
Maison Caramel is an old farmhouse with nearly 150 years of history. We've preserved as many of the original features as we could, including the floorboards. We've done our best to insulate them, but it does mean the lower rooms in the old part of the house won't meet the sound-proofing expectations of those used to modern concrete flats or purpose-built hotels. If this is a concern for you, ask to stay in one of the rooms on the 2nd floor (Village or Mountain), or the new top floor (the Penthouse).
