Have you dreamed of taking a French cooking class? Or perhaps you've always wanted to learn pottery making from an artisan in a small French village.

The French countryside is full of wine, food, and crafts masters who are happy to share their expertise-- but finding a list of them is nearly impossible.

If you're staying in our holiday cottages, we're happy to help arrange a personalized experience. Just contact us for more info.
Enjoy a tactile exploration of your creativity with various forms of clay at Atelier Bleu.

Bring a group of friends (and a bottle of wine) for a private gathering, or reserve a spot at the table during open hours. Call ahead for reservations.
Learn how to give old furniture new life from a master at shabby chic furniture techniques. Learn about surface preparation, painting, waxing, and return home with your own creation. Bring your own piece or the teacher can source one for you.
