I've just come across some old email correspondence which has served as a reminder that I'd intended to contact you on our return from holiday.
We found your property really quite delightful and had a wonderful holiday. In particular, we were so impressed with Erica & Tony. They really are such warm, friendly people who added a lovely personal touch to the property.
I would be grateful if you could pass on our appreciation.
