Our gastronomic weekends are designed to give you an exclusive taste of hidden Charente. You will get the chance to discover seasonal regional specialities including the renowned creamy butter and goats' cheeses, duck, rillettes, fish and seafood. You will enjoy the sights and smells of a bustling food market and visit artisan food producers not normally open to tourists. Each course will be for 2-4 people so can be tailor made for you. Accommodation is in our chambre d'hote with it's own entrance or a large double room with balcony and shower room.
If you would like to offer a gastronomic weekend as a gift we can supply a voucher. A wonderful present for a food loving partner, parents or special friend.
