  • Come to the reserve was a very nice discovery! The hike on foot in the snow was great and we thank again Marie, our passionate for his explanations and his home guide! We had a great day and we will certainly back. A great experience for nature lovers! I recommend with your eyes closed!

  • Come for the second time, small stay always as pleasant, relaxing, natural setting, ride to the top, guide who knows perfectly what he's talking about, staff very friendly, room clean bioclimatic, very well heated despite the snow outside, only downside big problem of soundproofing (we mean absolutely all conversations of neighbors) and a little lack of outdoor lights at night to go to the restaurant from the rooms. Still recommend ca worth.

  • Out with friends, day rain-snow, we loved this day to the reserve of the blue mountains. After lunch, a tartiflette and slow-cooked pigs of Gascogne, in the friendly restaurant, 'keep it simple', we discovered the reserve during a guided walk of 1:30 by Mary. The time not being engaging, we were alone with our guide. Welcoming, warm, educational, dynamic, Marie made us share his knowledge, his experience, his commitment (and the reserve) in the conservation of the flora, the reintroduction of animals etc. We have approached the bison, including Blondel (17 years old) and its congeners, Przewalski horses, deer, deer and other wild boars. This walk the feet in the snow were a beautiful moment of sharing and Exchange. I recommend it! Extra: hot wine upon arrival that warms. Thank you, Marie, & to the Reserve team. A very fast in September of October for the slab!
