I’m very pleased to announce that today, we’re able to ‘go public’ that from the 31st August 2010, both myself and my wife Jolene, will be leasing a luxurious boutique hotel in Farnham, Surrey, called ‘Hotel de Vie‘ (Hotel of Life).
This is a venture we’ve been in discussions regarding, for nearly 9 months now. The training is nearly complete, papers have been signed, and we should all be good to go in less than 3 weeks.
How did we do it?
I was fortunate to be speaking with the owner prior to the massive renovation project of the previously run down property. After sharing a few ideas with them, and keeping in contact over the past few years, at the end of a recent visit the owners mentioned they were looking to potentially expand the business (subject to finding a new suitable venue), so were keen to find a suitable couple to run the existing one.
Both myself and Jolene excitedly discussed the idea at length on the journey home, and gave them a call back as soon as we were home, offering ourselves for the purpose.
The rest as they say, is history.
We’ll be adding a few things to the hotel website over the coming months, but do feel free to check it out anytime on www.Hotel de Vie.com
