We recently stayed with John and Lesley at their beautiful home. It has been sensitively restored and beautifully furnished to maintain the charm and character of the building, but so much more than that is the warm, friendly and charming welcome and attention that you receive from the fabulous John and Lesley.
Never too much, but always just checking if you have everything you need, providing information and feeding you with Johns fabulous meals, whom is soooooooo modest about his skills.
When it came to our 19 month old daughter, she left calling them Pappa John and Essey, I think that speaks for itself!!!! Nothing was too much trouble, moving meal times to accommodate her bed time, playing games with her and bringing in specific foods for her when they went shopping.
The rooms were spotless, beds comfy, a cosy cot and high chair too with a supply of interesting things magically produced to keep our daughter amused.
Tea and coffee in the room, good bathrooms and plumbing - a rarity in France. Always enough hot water for daddy and daughter bath time and showers for mummy, fresh towels and linen coming out of our ears.
Will we be back? Absolutely!!!! Thank you Pappa John and Essey.
