So long and farewell to Anne and Nina, who enjoyed their stay this week at my city centre apartment.
After our messages back and forth prior to your arrival, it was lovely to finally meet you both, and to welcome you. Thank you again for choosing my apartment for your stay, and I hope to welcome you back if and when you next return to Edinburgh.
Thank you also for adding to my guests' comments book, and also for very kindly giving me permission to share them with my other guests, friends, family, and followers on social media (surname blurred for data privacy). I'm delighted with your comments, and also with Nina's amazing drawing; thank you so much!
Wishing you safe travels onwards, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your Scottish holiday. Have a safe and pleasant journey home, when the time comes.
A tour around our house, as we finish cleaning it today ready for our next arrivals. We are taking bookings for September onwards now with some weekends still available plus the October half term currently hasn’t been booked. Christmas is booked until 29th December, leaving the weekend for New Year still up for grabs.
Our new front patio area is finally done and I just need to buy some furniture this week so we can enjoy some more sun ☀️ over the summer holidays.
Harvesting the lavender at La Retraite ready to dry and hang in all the armoires this autumn, a scent of summer for those long winter months! We still have some September dates left, including a free half day baking course. DM for details.
Our lovely city-centre apartments weren't always so! Built circa 1840, the building was used originally as a a school before it became a HQ for social enterprises aiding the blind in 1875. It stayed that way right up until 2013 - the year David started the #ArdconnelCourt journey with renovations being complete in January of last year!
