The Secret Garden, Loire Valley

Originally a farmhouse, dating as far back as 1834, this hotel now stands elegantly decorated with beautiful French furnishings. The bedrooms remain true to the period design, each with a private bathroom and an attached kitchen for making tea and coffee. The hotel also has a sun terrace, garden and orchard you can relax in after a busy day playing masterchef.

What once was a stable is now an open plan kitchen where you will learn how to cook A-La-France. You will learn these life-long skills from chef Rinus and teacher Lesley about the integral techniques needed for preparing the finest French cuisine. This hands-on experience includes a trip to the local market for tips on how to source the finest local produce and best ingredients for your meals.

The area is stunning and will make for a perfect break away. The flights I have included for you are from Dublin to Tours, May 1 to May 4, and from there if you hire a car it is only an hour drive to your hotel. All relevant links are included below, just click on them to book.
