Weekends with Activities

From joining in to making sourdough bread in the old bread oven, to doing sewing in the lovely attic sewing atelier, or wine tasting foodie weekends.... Enjoy staying in lovely surroundings, get spoilt by having all your meals cooked for you, teas, afternoon cakes and evening cocktail, and on top of it, do something new and get involved.

The sewing weekends are held in the atelier on the second floor where you have the luxury of sitting calmly, just sewing and playing around with linens and laces. The sourdough weekend involves getting your hands sticky at times, and the pleasure of making and eating the fresh crusty breads that you will have made in the old restored bread oven in the 'pigeonnier.'
