Gourmet break in a rural French farmhouse with excursions, wine tasting and a cooking lesson

Domaine la Veronique has a reputation - stunning countryside and incredible food. This three-night gourmet break in the Languedoc countryside isn't just about a unique holiday, it's an experience of a lifetime for true foodies and fans of French fodder.

As part of your relaxing break in a charming French farmhouse, you'll learn how to whip-up delicious dishes in a half-day cooking class and on your return, you can show off an impressive knowledge of French food, cheese and wine after your stay - with wine-tasting, gourmet meals and guided excursions all packed in to our offers.

The charming restored stone farmhouse that'll be your home for three nights is located at Languedoc Roussillon, an area known for great food, wine and scenery. Peter Shaw, owner and renowned chef, will introduce you to the food and wine of the region, with his modern take on traditional dishes. Sally, his wife, will guide you on excursions through this amazing part of France. Tours and trips include wine tasting at Domaine Milhau, a tour of Pezenas, a Merchant Town near Beziers and a trip to Narbonne to visit the food market and gothic Cathedral.

Sip your aperitifs as you wander through the garden, amongst the olive, almond and fig trees or relax by the luxurious swimming pool. Daily breakfast, two gourmet lunches, three evening dinners, welcome drinks, excursions, wine tasting, a half-day cooking workshop, and transfers (from local airports or train stations) are included in the price of this amazing three-night break in the Languedoc.
