A traditional French cookery class!


Our Chef shares her creativity and very much prefers to work with local and bio-products. There are still many farmers who have decided to use traditional techniques and bio-farms as a matter of principle and preference, many small farms producing high quality products. Remember that the tradition of the French cuisine has much to do with this success, as people are seeking genuine regional products.

The kitchen is an art house. Cooking is about creativity and intuition, it starts in your imagination. This course is aimed to anybody who wants to know more about French cuisine, whether you are a passionate beginner or more experienced professional. Minimum 2 attendees.

Montolieu : the “book town”

For the last 20 years Montolieu has been officially recognised as a ‘book town’ 


and has approximately 15 dedicated independent bookshops. Perhaps less well known it is also a regional centre for other arts and crafts and various artists, designers, glass blowers and photographers have also established their studios here.

In the centre of old Montolieu there is also a museum dedicated to books and printing that contains a good number of ancient printing presses, old documents, and font types. You will find it interesting even if old books are not your thing!
