Excursions combining nature and food
Presentation: We’ve created this package for nature-lovers who want to combine the practical and the enjoyable. Each activity will allow you to discover new landscapes, by bike or by boat, and meet people who are passionate about their work. You’ll also have the pleasure of tasting the noble products of our organic agriculture, awakening your senses and tickling your taste buds.
TYPE OF ACCOMMODATION: With a host family
We’ve chosen host families from our professional and personal networks who share the same values as ours. Our aim is to create affinities between the visitors and families to make their stay more pleasant. Each family takes account of the clients’ specific requests, for example, if they are vegetarian or allergic to certain foods. The families take the guests to their lessons every morning and collect them every evening in order to make travel easy. The families also go out with the students to show them the region and the attractive places in the town.
FRENCH LESSONS : 15 hours a week
French lessons are given in mini-groups of 8 people and all our teachers are qualified. The classes are fun and interactive and our teachers pass on not only their native language but also the culture of the country. The lessons are given every morning between 9 and 12, from Monday to Friday. We can also offer private lessons by request.
This day out includes hunting for truffles with dogs, tasting a variety of olive oils and a meal featuring truffles and olive oil. A word from the producer: “It was my passion for this tastiest of treasures that inspired me to reclaim the land abandoned by my great grandfather and then to buy other land on the Pech de Bize foothills to replant the oaks with mycorrhizal fungi under which grows the Tuber Melanosporum, the black truffle. It’s this passion that I’d like to invite you to share with me during days or weekends on the estate. You’ll discover the fun of searching (we call it “caver”) under the oaks, following the work of the truffle dog and delving into the soil to extract your first truffle. You can then judge its appearance and its colour and smell the incomparable aroma that’s given this mushroom its name of black diamond”.
Venture out for a cruise aboard a sailing maxi-catamaran, where you’ll experience a relaxing sea voyage, stop for a swim, and watch the sunset with a meal and cool drinks!
You’ll enjoy a beautiful cycle ride from Beziers, along the Canal du Midi, to the sea. You’ll visit the towns of Villeneuve-les-Beziers and Portiragnes along the way, and finish at the Roque Haute bridge, with the beach at Portiragnes Plage nearby for a refreshing swim.
