Head to the bistro for a coffee or tea. Our craft, activity, games and multi-purpose rooms are also very popular for those who like to play board or card games. If you feel like stretching your legs or enjoying the summer breeze, our terrace and walking paths are perfect. When you need a moment of rejuvenating calm, stop by our beautiful chapel, a wonderful place for prayer and meditation.
