Leading up to our stay at L’autre Vie, I had that pleasant feeling of anticipating something good. And it was so, very good. After discovering this self-categorized boutique hotel/B&B on Google, it was immediately included into our 4 week holiday. We chose the “Sydney room” and were not disappointed. I think it is their smallest room but still the biggest experienced in Europe!
L’autre Vie is relatively new, only in its first year of business. The hosts Vanessa and Justin are the most welcoming and friendly people, willing to offer advice and assistance whenever needed. They are ex-pat Australians who have worked the corporate life in several major cities who decided to give that all in for “l’autre vie” or “the other life” and start this wonderful business that has so clearly pleased many people who have stayed there.
They were on hand to offer tips on where to eat in the region (although a lot is to be said about their food – check out my blog for more http://indafood.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/bon-appetit), and what to see and do in the region to suit whatever you may desire.
I whole-heartedly recommend L’autre Vie. Just enjoy and embrace your time in this beautiful haven.
