What time can I arrive and leave?

We make sure the bedrooms are ready from 4.00pm for check-in. Dinner is usually served at 7.30pm, so an arrival between 4.00pm and 7.00pm is ideal. If we are picking you up from Tonneins station, we will inform you as early as possible when the collection will take place so all the course participants can be collected at once. On departure day, unless we are dropping you off at Tonneins station for the 8:10am train, check-out should be done before 11.00am so we get a chance to prepare the room for the next guests.

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.
