I had been having a particularly stressful time, with both family, relationship and work and I was basically desperate to just get away from things and find some peace.
I stumbled across Maison Esmeralda whilst looking for accomodation on the net and I have to say it was probably one of the better decisions that I have made for quite a while. From the moment that I arrived Marcia and Michael were the perfect hosts, throught the whole of the five days that I spent with them knowing exactly how to give guests space and when advice and company is required.
The food that they had prepared was outstanding, their camaraderie warmth was unsurpassed and the setting of the Maison Esmerelda itself is unbelievably beautiful.
I really totally refreshed when I returned to London and I cannot recommend the place highly enough.
