La Jenny Resort – Part 3

The resort hosts activities for the kids and these seem to go from morning to late afternoon. One afternoon there were some kiddies practicing some classical music that created a very nice afternoon ambiance. For the sportier types, there are tennis and pétanque courts, a pony club (that’s not really nude), archery and so on and so on.… Read More »
