The place we called home during our visit to London for ten days in June-July, 2011 was just north of Kensington. We had access to the living room, dining area, kitchen and garden in addition to the bedroom(s). The landlady (Holly Lamar) has tastefully done up the place to look and feel like a French Chateau.
Holly a singer, song-writer known for her big hit “Breathe” (she co-wrote the song) in 1999, won numerous honors and debuted as a solo artist in 2002 with “Unkissed”. She continued to write for others, contributing “These Are the Days” and the hit “That’s the Way” to Jo Dee Messina‘s 2000 LP Burn. Not just a fabulous singer, Holly is a very friendly and warm host, not to forget her adorable, lovable pooches – Charlie (a boxer) and Daffodil (a terrier). It undoubtedly felt like a home away from home.
