An amazing true Périgord experience!

In the heart of the Dordogne-Périgord, in a hilly countryside surrounded by medieval castles, come and join our bilingual team who has prepared for you a special treat of traditional Périgord exquisite food and amusing French language lessons.

We invite you to stay for 4 days in a tastefully renovated farm in the charming village of Sainte-Alvère, famous for its truffle markets, where you will share with us the secrets of the “joie de vivre” in Dordogne.

We will teach you the basics of French language necessary to enjoy our beloved Périgord; you will also learn our favourite cooking recipes by actively participating in the preparation of our dinners.

During your stay with us, you will enjoy various products of traditional Périgord cuisine including our renowned black “truffes”, our favourite “cèpes” (tasty local mushrooms), our famous duck “confits” and “magrets”, as well as various cakes, gateaux and cannelés which we will teach you how to prepare.
