Activity Weekends in winter

Weekends :
We have tried these activities and thought they were really great fun. If you let us know what you fancy doing before you come, as some of them need booking up.
Play around with clay and be inspired by nature in artist Francois Quesnels studio which is in the grounds of the domaine. Very arty garden/ studio !
Learn about sourdough bread making and bake the breads in the old bread oven in the bottom of the 'pigonnier' ( the Chateau tower thingy )
Explore nature and spot birds and wildlife in the 'marais' areas as walks, cycling, canoeing or driving.
Do a foodie weekend with a trip to Rochefort's food market, and trips to organic farms for delicious food and local wines, cognac and pinot.
Children may like a weekend or half term of forest exploring, hut making, archery, speaking french, art or sewing classes in the atelier or helping out on the farm - we don't have animals so it would be a question of getting muddy type farming. Digging holes, wall building or whatever might be going on.
There is horse riding nearby that can be arranged, if you are a surfer there are various surf spots, tame and wild, take your pick.
