Amongst other things, food was one of the reasons we came to France, both on holiday, in previous years and then to live.
Here in France, food is an occasion and the opportunity to gather and share a meal is seized daily; it's a ritual.
And meals here are not rushed - this is a slow food nation; both the food and company is savoured.
Through our love of the gastronomique and Simon being a experienced chef, we have ensured that, throughout your stay, there are plenty of options available when it comes to those three most important meals of the day!
Opt for beaux breakfasts, perfect picnics and delicious dinners for when you don't want to cook and BBQ packs, recipe cards and ingredients for when you do!
All in all - a foodie feast to behold!
Opt for a delicious breakfast basket to be delivered to your tent for a luxurious, leisurely start to your day
Make your selections from our a la carte breakfast menu of local, organic produce and really savour the morning
Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and low carb options are available!
Whether you are staying local or venturing further afield, finding the perfect spot for a picnic is all part of the adventure. We can prepare a scrumptious alfresco lunch for you to take on your travels.
Mealtimes in France are an occassion and a picnic is a great way to make lunch just that!.
Your picnic will come with picnic bag/basket, rug, ice packs, all the necessary plates, cuttlery & glasses to enable you to picnic in style!
Let us cook for you! Just stroll across the meadow and enjoy a super relaxed evening!
Table d'hôtes literally means "the hosts" table and you will be very welcome at ours!
In typical French style, join us for apero (pre dinner drink & nibbles!) followed by a four course set menu (or 3 if you want to skip the cheese!) making the best use of regional and local produce including wine!
It's a casual, sociable affair - the two key ingredients being good food and good company - with everyone contributing to the latter!
This area of France is famous for its beef, our closest neighbours are Charolais and Limousin cows in the fields around us and you can order barbecue packs supplied by local producers
Taking another local delicacy, try the delicious house green lentil burger with vegetable kebabs. This burger may be vegan option but it's very meaty!
Cooking on the campfire is all part of the fun and experience of glamping. Visit one of the local markets, let your eyes feast on the delicious produce and be inspired!
If you are stuck for ideas as to what to cook, we have a number of recipe cards to refer to and instructions "how to" - and we'll gladly give you some pointers!
Alternatively, opt for our Fire and Stars Hamper full of savoury and sweet campfire treats - you're on hoilday after all!
