When we got there, in the afternoon, we had to postpone the activity because it was in English, while the invitation mentioned "French". On the other hand, we appreciated the welcome in the evening and the activity.

Friendly, fun and informative. Agatha was a wonderful host and teacher. I have already looked for the cheeses to enjoy them at home in England. Thank you x

Great guide with a lot of knowledge. Got to see the ageing fridge, taste 7 local cheeses and 3 local wines. Superb experience.
