About Us

This isn't simply another generic holiday directory site listing a collection of unrelated companies...

No, we actually host the activities we promote and are intimately involved in all aspects of each course.

We're a family business delivering a high quality personal service to guests from all over the world.

Talk to someone who knows what you want...

When you send us an email enquiry or phone us (0033 [0]553 302405) it'll probably be me who takes the call. I'll then know exactly what you want.

And, because I'm familiar with every aspect of all our courses, you'll know that you're talking to someone who has their finger well and truly on the pulse.

I can help you sort out your travel arrangements, tell you what the weather's doing, talk about the food, discuss our tutors and generally help you get the most from your time with us.

The Chef...

Your cooking tutor is me, chef/owner, Jim Fisher. I'm a former BBC Masterchef semi-finalist and have worked with top chefs Rick Stein, Tony Tobin and Alistair Little.

I moved to France with my family in 2000 and have completely fallen in love with France and it's food. I'm a passionate cook and believe that food is good and that cooking should be fun!

Is your French a bit shaky..?

My wife, Lucy, is bilingual in English and French, so can assist with translation of travel details, help with extra accommodation and generally ease the flow allowing you to relax and enjoy your holiday.

Want a chat about our courses..?

If you have any questions about any aspect of our courses - me, our tutors, the venue, travel, food, etc - please email enquiry or phone (0033 [0]553 302405).

I'm really looking forward to your call.
