Foodie weekends with a trip to Rochefort's food market, and trips to organic farms for delicious food and local wines, cognac and pinot. Book this for groups of friends, family or even your work group.
Half-terms with older children and teens : For groups of 2 to 4 families, have a great week of forest activities, visiting markets, learning french, art classes, nature walks in the marais, discovering gallo-roman history, joining in work on the farm. We love showing young people what we do and letting them join, so get in touch if you want to book up for a half term holiday with lots going on, and very little wifi.
