Wine tasting and vineyard tours: There are literally hundreds of vineyards in this wonderful area, offering wine from a few centimes to thousands of Euro a bottle, and it is interesting to learn the different methods used from vineyard to vineyard from the traditional to state of the art. We can hold wine tasting days at the house or arrange a driver for you to take you out and enable you to explore and have the opportunity to taste the different varieties.
Creative courses: We run short breaks incorporating floristry, upholstery and cookery courses if you decide to tear yourself away from the pool or to return during the winter months with a group of friends.
Golf: There are many golf courses around the area. The fantastic Château des Vigiers Golf and Country Club, with restaurant and Beauty Spa, is a 30 minute drive away. This famous 18 hole course was created by Donald Steel. The Château dates back to 1597 and is set in 450 acres of beautiful countryside.
