I lost the directions to La Liniere but managed to ask an elderly french lady who was toiling slowly up the hill from Honfleur 'where is the big house for b@b called 'Liniere'-and she knew straight away.
I'm not surprised -it is an imposing building standing near the top of a very steep hill.As we arrived I heard a piano playing [I hope it was Ravel or Debussy], then in answer to our tentative ring at the door a very charming French man greeted us most courteously and showed us to an equally charming bedroom.
The town was a short distance down the hill, teeming with tourists - a fascinating place that we will definitely be revisiting.
Back at La Liniere all was quiet and calm - our host's equally charming father invited us to have a late night drink in the garden, bringing out glasses and chair cushions.
The next morning we bid a regretful farewell -but not until I had [apparently] delighted host and other guests by playing the piano - Schumann on a beautiful blue-skied morning in France -what could be better!More
