Au top, on s'y sent bien. Cheval au top dans sa tête pour les balades proposées. Cuisine à dispo avec frigo c'est un plus pour prendre l'apéro ;), chambre tout à fait correcte. Découverte de la Camargue réussie, de belles rencontres et découvertes, ça donne envie de refaire ce genre de séjour avec son cheval pour être encore mieux.
