    Le Balcon des Jasses

    Im Lucy, I start Bed and Breakfast in My home 2002, and been with Booking.com in 8 years. The name of my Property is Le Balcon des Jasses, Located in South West France. I own 3 apartments, ass short time rent or with Breakfast and Dinner. I do full room service and clean the room, for my clients, every day.

    I have a Jacuzzi, a big garden, I love flower, and decorations, a Tea House where i serve  Chinese Green tea, its very popular and people sometimes just arrive for a cup of tea.

    I run my apartments a "high" style, with everything people need when traveling.

    Im not cheap, in the lower end for what i 4 star Hotel take.I have 9.5 with Booking.com, thanks

    Im almost fully booked every year, except November where I have Holiday with my Husband.

    I love this job, I am a educated Medical Doctor, but to much stress, and problems. 

    Now I deal with people on holiday, happy people, and many people and Family from different countries come back every year.

    I will not turn my "clock" back, few years more, than a new family can take over, if.........

    Thank you

    Thanks Laura for the topic.You will not  believe it. Its what my husband asked me this morning.  If I went back in time would I do things the same way.  Of course!! all the way!! My life has been like a fairytale.

    Have two lovely children, one beautiful grandaugther and thank God although we had hard times in the past we are all healthy.  With my husband we have traveled and discovered our country, first of all, and then around the world in so many places over and over again. Now that my grandaughter is ten years old I dont tell her fairytales but my life adventures and discoveries. Now she takes part in hosting and is thrilled. The fairytale never ends....

    Happy posting to everyone!!!

    Hey, its Paul & Clare here! We have renovated an old cottage in the grounds of our property, and offer just two luxury rooms in Long Melford, Suffolk, England. We opened in May 2018, and have just won a guest review award on b.com with a score of 9.9!!

    The cottage overlooks the stately mansion of Melford Hall, making The Mill the perfect place to stay in the centre of Long Melford!

    Our two boutique rooms are beautifully furnished and have private off road parking and their own individual entrances, offering both privacy and flexibility so guests can come and go with ease.

    The Melford Room is open plan and spacious. It features a sumptuous freestanding brass and nickel bath in the living area and beautiful hand polished cast iron radiators. The room offers a real sense of space and has a small outdoor seating area offering a lovely vista toward the soaring spires of Melford Hall. 

    The Garden Room is calm and relaxing, and has a charming garden for the exclusive use of its guests; a delight in the summer months! The garden is perfect for eating breakfast al fresco or cooking an evening barbecue. A wood burner is installed for the winter which makes for a very romantic stay.

    Both rooms are very generous in size measuring apx 300ft2. and have large, wall mounted televisions, walk in showers and luxury baths. The rooms are single storey, making them very accessible and they form part of a Grade II listed cottage that used to serve the working mill in times gone by. Completely renovated in 2018 and brought back to their former glory, the Grade II listed cottage and Hall Mill house can be found on Historic England's Heritage list.

    The Mill is steeped in history being mentioned in the Domesday Book. It sits next to the ford which crosses Chad Brook, giving Long Melford its name (“Mill Ford”). In addition, the famous war poet Edmund Blunden lived here until his passing in 1974; Edmund studied, wrote poetry and died at The Mill, there is a collection of some original books by Edmund Blunden for guests to enjoy at their leisure.

    Our website is www.themill-longmelford.com

    Come and stay with us but of course you must book via booking.com!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My name is Wendy, my place is located in Samal Island, Davao Philippines.. I am hosting for a year now from another platform and just joined booking.com recently.. I must say, although in the beginning Im not really into hosting because of privacy reasons and stuff. Im just thinking of accumulating funds for the project i have in mind.. Once i managed to reach it i will stop hosting then.. But then.... The more guests staying at home, the more friends i've got.. , knowing different people with different cultures is sooo much fun!!!! . And now I kind of loving it!! , And i think its something i like doing!! .. Im so passionate about it now,, that in days I don't have booking It feels like something is missing . lol

    Hi to everybody , my name is Shiloh and my guest Lodge is situated on the Southern most tip of Africa where all the Southern Right whales come to give birth every Sept.I am based in the seaside hamlet of Hermanus and run two lodges Squirrels Leap and Matshana Lodge. Between the two is a small tribal Arts museum open to guests . We are a stones throw from a white sandy beach with beautiful walks along the coastline. (From Cape Town airport about 1 hr)  I also travel to Europe frequently and love networking with other hosts from various countries . My greatest joy is sharing the unique wild life heritage and biosphere individualism of this area, notwithstanding a good glass of Merlot with a international traveler. We have a wine valley called Heaven and Earth and here you can sit for hrs watching the golden African sunsets while nibbling on tasty seafood snacks.Hosting for Booking.com is the best job in the world where the global village becomes one and their are no more borders , we are just one big family .

    Hi, everyone, my name is Angie and I should have introduced myself before but never realised there was this opening forum.

    I am English from the S.West of UK, my husband and myself are helping our son to develop his house,situated in the Center of France in the middle of one of the largest oak forests in Europe. The finest oak is used for wine barrels and the making of Cognac.There is much history in the area.

    One apartment is being let for holiday rentals and  the house is beside a beautiful fishing lake,the apartment has beautiful views of the lake and surrounding forest.

    People come for the fishing, walking,with their pets,to just be able to appreciate the silence in the forest and  close to nature.

    I would not change being able to come to this area and feel very privileged, in this age of `hustle and bustle`. however technology makes it simple to communicate ,worldwide. 

    To Christina,  we have been with booking .com for a year and it was ,`slow`,to start but you will find that any business takes time to nurture and grow, don`t become` fainthearted`,you will soon find your `niche`.

    Lucy thank you very much, I highly appreciate it. I love French wines and especially Malbec. Maybe in the near future we can enjoy a glass of your superb wine.  I have visited so many times your country. I love it. Hope I can come back someday. My husband loves driving so we have enjoyed your fantastic country both in winter and in summer. Starting from Nice we have visited the beautiful towns along the amazing French Riviera (Cote d'Azur)  ending to stunning St. Tropez. A  shore excursion with stunning views to the sea. Another time we visited  Paris, the city of lights, (Aifel tower,  Museums, galeries,churges, heritage towns,monuments).with its dazzling boulevards and bridges, Versailles, Dijon, Fontainebleau, Le Man. Once in wintertime our destination was the  breathtaking Chamonix,  and the beautiful petit villages in the valleys of Mont Blanc. Unbelievable, like a fairy tale scenery. Bordeaux, Royan, Toulouse, Albi, Montpellier, Rodez, Roquefort, Nimes have been some other unforgettable places we have visited  and so many more that I cant remember. 

    At this point I must mention that my first guest was a couple  from Eglise Villeneuve, Cot d' Azur. I was thrilled.  I welcomed them with a glass of Greek red wine and they  left  me with an excellent review.


    Sorry, if I got carried away. France is a legend for me...

    Lucy, thanks for sharing with us  a marvelous dinner....
