Traditional Heirloom Bear Making Weekend 12th - 13 October ( 11th - 14th )
I know it sounds crazy, but spending a weekend sewing, eating, drinking, going for a walk or to a brocante, and doing some more sewing, is so relaxing, and we have the perfect setting here. No cars, planes, noises apart from birdsong. Meeting like minded people and coming away with a beautiful heirloom bear. The cost for the whole weekend including all food and drinks starts at 450 per person. Arrival friday 11th, leaving 14th is possible at no extra cost.
More weekends are coming up but here are some other ideas :
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.
