Just Passing Through!

We received a reservation from Didier and Carole Jeanjean for a one night’s stay for themselves and their three children recently, so were pleased to welcome them when they arrived last Thursday. They had set off from their home in France at 5.00am, so arrived with us around lunchtime with the intention of relaxing for the rest of the day around the pool.

They were on their way to spend two weeks in the south of the country near Marbella, but were going to go to Granada first in order to see the world-famous Alhambra so we were a convenient stop-off point on the Costa Blanca along the way. They were taking time off from their olive oil producing business near Nîmes for a family holiday and we were ideally placed for their overnight break.

They had also decided to take advantage of our evening meal service in order to avoid having to find a restaurant in the town and to enable them to make the most of their rest time in the sunshine. They were delightful guests and it was great that they joined us for dinner, although they went to bed soon afterwards to make up for the early start they had had.

The following morning they had breakfast and we wished them “Bon Voyage” when they departed on the final part of their journey at around 9.00am. They loved the surroundings of the area, as well as the villa itself, and assured us they would stay with us again at some point in the future, and certainly whenever they found themselves on the Costa Blanca and wanting an overnight stop – or maybe even for a longer family holiday! We look forward to seeing them again.
