When is the best time to come?

Photo of Cooking & Art Holidays in FranceEach season has its own charm... In Provence people celebrate “la joie de vivre” all over the year.

If you like the sun and the remote nature, the Luberon in Provence is a must. July and August are hot in Provence and on the Côte d’Azur (but... crowded!). It’s the peak season and the time of Art and Music festivals, the time of local exuberant feasts.

From September to November and from March to June weather is very pleasant and places of interest are not crowded. Winter is cold in Provence and cool on the Cote d'Azur.

How do you select the places where we will stay?
We have visited and checked dozens and dozens of B&B's in Provence and on the Cote d'azur. Our selected B&B has a large kitchen with the best equipment appropriated for our classes, beautiful location and charming facilities, including gardens or park and swimming pool. All room must be spacious, pleasantly decorated with modern private bath rooms.

I don't speak ANY French. How will I get along!

Pas de problem! (No problem) All our classes are taught in English. Philippe and Marie-Pierre both speak fluent English, and will help guide you through the idiosyncrasies of French life. They will even teach you a few of the phrases that will help you get along (Philippe wrote Easy French Grammar, a memento of the French grammar for foreigners)
