We stayed 3 nights with John and Ruth, our room was spacious, with lovely views and beautiful gardens. The most memorable part of our stay was the Looooong breakfasts. In John and Ruth's house, or more correctly mansion, you are treated as family. So we had the pleasure of sharing breakfast with our hosts, where we would discuss our day and what we wanted to see. Soon the conversation turned to other things and time would slip by as we talked about common interests. Thanks so much John and Ruth for a wonderful and memorable 3 days.
