Mansion of the late nineteenth century

The first house, built before 1900, was called “Villa Lodie”.

This guest house was run by great aunt and great uncle Lodie, than by Marie-Julie and Henri Laffont in the 1920’s. Then by their son Paul in the 30’s and 40’s.

It tooked the name “Hotel Villa Lodie” than “Lodie’s Hotel”.

Now the “Hotel les Touristes” is run by Geneviève, granddaughter of Marie-Julie. She tries to keep the originality of this house with its authenticity and charm. Geneviève and Lionel keeps up the cuisine traditional and dietetic as initiated by Paul.
