Why not Try A Cooking class.

When you’re on holiday it is the perfect time to try something new, develop our skills or just enjoy the things we love doing. Cooking can teach us so much about a culture and is a great activity for all ages.

Chateau Ladausse can offer a private chef for that special meal at your place. Alternatively visit the chateau and enjoy the "open table d' hote" they are planning a regular weekly dining night for this event.

This chateau also runs wine workshops where you can discover more about the wines from Bordeaux, Bergerac and Cahors. There is also the opportunity to have a “wine atelier” ( wine workshop) in your holiday home, this sounds like a great idea.
