Itinerary

Day 1:
Welcome dinner (excluding drinks) at the Hostellerie's gastronomic restaurant, where our Chef will delight your palate with his delicious, heartfelt Provencal cuisine.

Day 2:
It's off to the Bastide des Saveurs for a cookery class with our star-rated Chef René Bérard. Welcome to Paradise! This is Pagnol's Provence for real.

René issues you with your chef's hat, recipes and embroidered apron. Now make way for an unforgettable experience. First of all you will head for the garden, where you will discover and gather various herbs, medicinal plants, fruit and vegetables. Then it's back to the kitchen to prepare the dish of the day – today's choice is a Provencal stew with choice cuts of meat cooked up with herbs and vegetables. The table is ready – now all you have to do is enjoy your culinary creation out on the terrace or in the ancient dining room in true Provencal style.

Day 3:
This morning you'll be up bright and early for a trip to the colourful fish market in Sanary-sur-Mer in the company of René, where you'll be able to meet up with the local fruit and vegetable producers, fishermen and cheese makers. You will see the day's catch come into the port and head back to the "Bastide des Saveurs" armed with some fabulous fresh fish for the day's class.

Day 4:
Another great day! This time the spotlight is on Provence's tasty, juicy and sun-packed Provencal vegetables. René will be passing on some of his top chef's tips (but not all of them – you'll have to come back for the rest!).

Day 5:
Your last day, dedicated to those with a sweet tooth. And as you'll find out, Provence's much-appreciated dessert tarts and chocolate "moelleux" are so delicious you're sure to want seconds.
