La Tensa is a peaceful and beautiful place lost in the woods where you can relax and discover the region. The room and the house are very cute and clean. And the food in the restaurant is one of the best we never ate!

The food at this this restaurant is out of this world! Sabrina is an excellent chef. She prepared all local produce that tasted absolutely superb! My favourite was her tagliatelle and the fillet steak! Gorgeous!!
