If you enjoy fishing or water sports in the lakes and nearby river Dronne or cycling on the deserted country roads then come and make your base here.

You will be able to sit outside from dawn through to night time when you'll be able to just stare up at the sky and be amazed at how bright the stars shine.

Chez Molly can make you feel like you have stepped into a stress free world so just come and feel all your tensions and worries slip away and enjoy an unforgettable holiday here.
