Learn to cook tasty Provencal dishes using the finest and freshest ingredients that our beautiful and bountiful lands have to offer. In your three night stay you will explore the local towns, shop at local markets, taste locally made artisanal products and relax in the stunning surroundings that is Mas des Avelines.

We will cook together exploring the many unique flavours that Provence has to offer; basil. parsley, capers, olives, garlic, lavender, anchovies, olive oil and team them with the great Provencal treasures of seafood, local cheeses, tomatoes, aubergines, courgettes, artichokes not to mention the peaches, nectarines, apricots and the list goes on.

When the evenings roll around we will sip chilled rose and eat tapenade toasts before eating our relaxed family style dinner together and experience the ‘joie de vivre’ that we all long for.
