On the lam


More about hotel Les Sapins.
As I reported yesterday the hotel promised us that they would clean the rooms every day (Nous assurons le service du petit-déjeuner ansi que le nettoyage quotidien des chambres et salles de bain).
Today, just the bathroom was cleaned, the beds were untouched. A towel on the balcony was blown away by the wind. Nobody seemed to notice.
But the owner turned out to be a truly lovely lady.
The breakfast was completely self-service, but delicious.
This hotel won my heart.
There is I believe no high season in hotel Les Sapins – the perfect place for refugees and retired spies. Are you on the lam? They won’t find you here.
