Choose from any of our scheduled weeks (ask us if you need a different date because of plane schedules) or pick your own dates over a weekend for a 3 – 4 night stay or take advantage of our Special Offer ‘Quick Trips’.

In 2015 we are introducing four new ‘Relax & Learn’ experiences, a Vive La France week in September, a Garden week in the spring with visits to several important gardens (Hautefort, Chateau de Losse) as well as the St Jean de Cole Floralies; a Patchwork & Quilting holiday in May when you can quilt to your hearts delight among fellow quilters and with instruction; and a Pre-history holiday in October with visits to 3 cave systems in the Dordogne (Villars, Rouffignac and Lascaux) with Cro-Magnon paintings and drawings.

And it’s always possible to request a Cooking session in the Chateau kitchen during your stay.

If you are holidaying by yourself, come and make new friends.  You will be well looked after on accompanied trips out.  And we have  special prices for the single traveller throughout the year, with no single supplement.
