Our thematic French courses for adults

Due to the corona crisis, we have to postpone our thematic courses until 2022. However, you can choose one of the topics offered for the individual or small group courses. Unfortunately, the trips and workshops cannot take place.

At each of the varied workshops, you will learn all about the wild herbs and plants of the region, their curative effects and their uses. During the ensuing cooking course, you will combine culinary delights with the collected foraged finds.
