Experience La Creuzette

At La Creuzette, we offer a creative collection of exciting seasonal itineraries. These ever-evolving week-long courses are constructed with experts presenting hands-on, interactive classes and lifestyle experiences. Local and international chefs, artists, writers, designers and wine connoisseurs make up the creative team at La Creuzette.

Every holiday is carefully planned and built around guests’ expectations. Exquisite attention to detail makes each La Creuzette package a unique and stimulating event, often referred to by guests as life changing. The all-inclusive programmes incorporate everything from the first glass of champagne to aprons, paints, all excursion fees and tickets. The essence of our motto is to inspire and motivate.

Aubusson, the tapestry capital of France, and Limoges, famous for its fine porcelain, are both on our doorstep. Because of the rich diversity of the region, you can customise your programme and create your own bespoke La Creuzette experience.
