A Bastille Day gourmet 5 course lunch at Vacqueyras one of the most important wine areas about 1 hour from the house. If you want to arrive at 10am and buy a 3 Euro glass you can sample free the wines from the Vacqueyras and Gigondas Area. Lunch starts at midday and there is a succession of gourmet food and wine to follow accompanied by bands, displays of local folk dancing in costume, and dancing for everyone. The tables are set out in the main street under rows of shady plane trees and it is a truly delightful experience.

During the rest of the week there will be on offer at least 2 in house dinners by Chef Judy in our delightful garden under the grape covered pergola. Cost approx 35 Euros per head plus your wine. Sightseeing trips to local villages and all the interesting sights in and around Provence are less than an hour away and I can suggest itineraries for you.


Friday 18th July:

Surely the highlight of the Party week. Spectacular concert with the talented New Zealand (and International stars) Tina Cross and Rikki Morris who are flying from New Zealand to do this concert in Saint Maximin. How lucky are we?!

This will either be in the Garden of the “Maison de Maitresse” or in the village square.
