If you want to do something different with your stay, how about a workshop with a local artist or artisan?
I can arrange a one-to-one day for you, or you can join a small group if you prefer. Learn anything from calligraphy to candle-making, reed weaving to felt-making, wood-carving to how to use natural dyes. All tutors are artists/artisans and, with many years experience of their skill love to pass on their knowledge. If you are interested in a full list of what is available, email me here.
FYI... French language not required. A translator will be provided if you want!
The gites are full of unusual objects, many of which are for sale. Some are reclaimed/recycled, others sourced locally in brocantes. Others are original artworks by local artists which make really unique souvenirs.
You can find the full catalogue here.
