Jewellery making and wellness holiday

Caroline and Adam managed to create a wonderful balance of professionalism and yet making you feel as if you are having a week 'en famille'. the tuition and treatments were great and it was made clear that the week could be flexible and accommodate our preferences for outings etc.

Caroline and Adam were the best hosts, welcoming me into their home and providing delicious food, plentiful amounts of wine and lots of laughter. The excellent tuition from Caroline enabled me to make some beautiful pieces of jewellery which I am thrilled with. Will definitely return.

Painting holiday

Lovely location, Caroline friendly and helpful, the accommodation adequate and I thoroughly enjoyed the painting. I would have preferred more painting time in the studio in Condom than the 15 hours provided as this was what I went for, and less time at the farmhouse.

Had a fantastic painting holiday! Learnt lots of new techniques from the very talented Rebecca, and was inspired by the beautiful location. Caroline and Adam were fantastic hosts. The accommodation, food, and excursions to local markets were all excellent, and made for a very relaxing holiday.

Metal clay jewellery making short break

I had an amazing 4 day break in the south of France learning to make jewellery with Caroline, my tutor. I was made to feel so welcome from the 1st email communication with Caroline all the way to her dropping me back at Agen station. I made 3 beautiful pieces and now feel that I have caught the jewellery making bug!! Carolina's husband Adam made some amazing dishes, it was like eating in a 5 star restaurant every day bit without any of the pretentiousness. The accondation was lovely and I especially liked the outdoor pool, perfect to cool off in the hot weather. I'm already thinking about booking my next holiday with Caroline.

L Jordan, Groton, USA - Sep 2016

Jewellery and cooking holiday

The holiday was really wonderful. Caroline and Adam are amazingly nice people who really care about their guests. Caroline and Adam are experts in their field and impart their knowledge with patience, humor and flexibility. The accomdations are up to date and very comfortable. The side trips were interesting, beautiful and informative. The welcoming, down to earth ambiance is more than relaxing it's restorative. As a single traveler I was never made to feel uncomfortable or out of place.Without reservation I recommend this holiday.

Metal clay and polymer clay jewellery holiday

From the moment I was picked up to the moment I left I had a fantastic time. Caroline absolutly gave 100% of herself, tutoring and making me feel welcome and confident. Her whole family, as a matter fact. Her husband cooked delightfully. We also travelled around. Wonderful experience!!!

Polymer clay and cuff making short break

This was an exceptionally amazing experience for me. Caroline was very meticulous in the way she delivered the training and introduction to Polymer Clay Jewelry and cuff making....but it wasn't just the Studio Sessions...It was also the great healthy but very yummy food prepared by Adam....the farmhouse which was simply breathtaking and serene.... and the excursions to Nerac, the Frechou night market, the visit to galleriekoustak.......Its all an inclusive must have experience. Highly recommended.

Glass jewellery making and cooking holiday

Caroline and Adam were warm, kind and generous hosts. The tuition of both the jewellery and cooking classes was first rate. I was very very pleased with the pieces of jewellery that I produced and Adam made the cookery class great fun and I came away with lots of ideas. Their school is in an idyllic, peaceful setting with beautiful views. I can thoroughly recommend this course. Lots of laughs, fun, sun and good food.

C Hobbs, Horton Heath, England - Aug 2015

Metal clay jewellery making short break

I had a wonderful time, so much more than just a course. It was an opportunity to see something of local life, with everything tailored to the interests of the group. Caroline, Adam and their children welcomed you into their family and immediately put you at your ease. The food was great too. I hadn't given the jewellery making much thought before I went but was pleasantly surprised at what I did manage to create and can't wait to show the pieces off. Caroline is very talented and adapts her course to throw in new techniques she thinks you might be interested in. Thank you Caroline and Adam for a great holiday.

K Howe, Dunmow , UK - May 2015

Metal clay jewellery making short break

What a wonderful time I had! The hosts are so friendly, and the food was AMAZING. But most importantly, the opportunity to learn a completely new skill (I was a total novice!) was invaluable and such great fun. I would utterly recommend.

Glass jewellery making and cooking holiday

A brilliant holiday. Caroline and Adam are excellent hosts. I came back with several pieces of jewellery to many compliments. The cooking experience was fun and there was much wine tasting and laughter. It is a beautiful part of France and I was taken to some of the little villages nearby, to markets and Toulouse too. I made new friends. It was one of the best holidays I have had. I hope to go back again!

M Lorraine Manciet, Marana, USA - Jul 2013

Jewellery and cooking holiday

Had I taken the time to define what would be the perfect trip for me, I could not have imagined the trip to be as perfect as it actually was. Caroline, Adam and their delightful children were the ultimate hosts. I am definitely planning to return to experience another vacation of a lifetime!

P Wilkinson, Heckmondwike, England - Aug 2013

Jewellery and cooking holiday

My sister and I spent a week at Baron Figues on the jewellery and cooking course - a girls holiday away from stress was the plan! Everybody involved made this a trip that will never be forgotten and forever treasured! The 'teaching' was informal and friendly and Caroline and Adam simply couldn't do enough to make sure we had an amazing time. The surroundings, the pool and activities were an added bonus although we were busy wine-tasting, eating local delicacies, completing jewellery projects and visiting Bordeaux! The food was phenomenal and we have come home armed with simple ways to impress our friends together with beautiful jewellery I am amazed we were able to create! I really felt that everybody made a huge effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay - we loved every minute of it and I would wholeheartedly recommend it - a great way to immerse yourself in rural France!
