Sincere gratitude for neighbourly landlords

5 of 5
We have just returned from Nyumbani after two weeks of mixed weather but an altogether heartening experience. Our welcome ,was just as described by other families,but our experience of a nine year old in great distress because of an ear infection was just wonderful. On a Sunday morning Edmund and Averil gathered us up and whisked us off to see the Mayor of Cazals,also a local Doctor,and fighting through Market Day traffic to the Pharmacy in the next village ,we were sorted ! We honestly would have been lost without our lovely Landlords. It got better,next event was a birthday, homemade lemon meringue pie and hangovers.Followed by a day canoeing on the Dordogne for my daughter and her boy,and a trip to Prayssac market ,again through murderous traffic negotiated with great cool by Averil. Can we go again ? - this could be difficult,as bookings for next year are hectic, but yes !
