Thank you for your hospitality, your fantastic food, tasteful accommodation in a fantastic setting. The soiree with wine tasting was the highlight of our week and we wish we could have stayed longer to taste more of Phil's fantastic wine selection. We will definitely be recommending La Madelene

Thank you for sharing your home with us..and for sharing with us some of the best vineyards in the southern rhone region..we have never had such a personalised wine tasting experience before - thank goodness Geneva is not too far away!
