At La Creuzette we take cooking seriously and we have built a healthy reputation for being a frontrunner on the culinary scene without disregarding the rich and valuable aspects of traditional French cuisine. We share our kitchen secrets with you and show you all the tricks of the trade: some molecular gastronomy, we take you to harvest saffron and cook with it and we teach you foolproof recipes that you will replicate with ease and confidence.
Autumn is here – the leaves have turned to ochre and gold and the wild mushrooms are in abundance on the mossy forest floor. Join us for a dream holiday where we eat produce from our organically grown potager and visit beguiling places.
Our favoured spring holiday, the annual French Lifestyle experience, is composed around two of the most important and biggest local brocantes (antiques fairs) in central France. All you could wish for is included: hands-on cooking demonstrations with celebrated chefs, selected tastings from the first of the wine fairs and excursions to beguiling sites.
This holiday focuses on our annual Iris painting course with the irises in full bloom this time of the year. In combination with the painting course, for guests who wish to not paint, we visit beautiful spring gardens in our area. Limoges, famous for fine porcelain, is also on the agenda.

Two centuries after her death by guillotine in 1793, the name of this French queen remains shrouded in infamy and intrigue. Nonetheless, Marie Antoinette's undeniably unique sense of style and creative genius reflected at Le Petit Trianon at Versaille, heralded a new vogue in decorating.
