Joie de Vie is in an ideal position for such events as there are no street lights and there is very little city glow thus providing the perfect night skies for viewing. Should you want to catch this annual event in 2014 and top those experiences already expressed, we are open to receive advanced bookings. Check our page on Holiday Lettings for availability. Thank you once again, and look forward to seeing you next year.
