What can I do on my time off?

Your time off will basically be from 4.00pm to 7.00pm, after our cooking sessions, so you can relax in your room, or in the lounge/diner, or even in the garden. A good book or a little siesta maybe? Of course if you have a car, you can explore the area, there are nice places to see not far from our location (why not check Our Location page to get a few ideas). We do have some bikes on site that we are happy to let you use across the surrounding countryside. Unfortunately, we will be unable to provide transport for you, so please consider hiring a car if you are planning on going out.

Meet some of the people we'll visit

Of the many producers we visit on the seasonal french cooking course, Tucked away among the rolling hills of the Lot-et-Garonne, Gilbert has been crafting his wines for many years. As an organic wine producer he grows a selection of grapes including a very special variety unique to the area. His knowledge and experience in wine is what makes visiting Gilbert very special. On our visit, he'll walk us through his grape vines explaining how he uses the natural environment to benefit the vines themselves and the blending methods used to achieve great tasting wine. You'll soon discover his wines have lots of character and flavour as we have a wine tasting over a picnic together.
