“Excited to be embarking on a culinary adventure with Vallée de la Gastronomie in France.
A destination that spans 620km of beautiful vineyards, farms, cheese makers, iconic restaurants, historical towns & beautiful villages from Dijon to Marseille, via Lyon and Provence.”
“A magical stay at the beautiful Hotel de la Villeon. A private townhouse, nestled on the border of Provence, deep inside the Rhone Valley, with spectacular views over the Hermitage vineyards.
Discovering our new favourite cheeses for breakfast - we loved the oozy Saint-Félicien with freshly baked baguettes!”
“Amazing wine experience with Terres de Syrah, discovering Cave de Tain and the vineyards on the Hermitage Hill. You can book a hike, ride or wine asting with a local guide trying some amazing wines!
We loved tasting the local cheeses, cured meats chocolate and seasonal fruit, alongside some delicious wines!”
“Dreamy lunch at André by Anne-Sophie PIC. The menu explores the culinary history and creativity of her family’s cooking, spanning four generations. Save room for Jacques Pic’s magic dessert, the iced orange & Grand Marnier soufflé! Iced parfait both voluptuous and light, in which the Grand Marnier brings out the bitterness of the orange.”
“Picnic in the Lavender Fields with locally made hams & cheeses, freshly baked bread, lovely salads, fresh fruit & a bottle of delicious rosé of course! And then a very interesting tour of the domaine, learning all about wine production with Rémy, followed by a full tasting of his family’s delicious wines.”
“Very excited to visit Lyon, we absolutely adore this place! We took a lovely walk around the Old Town, discovering some amazing historical buildings, pastry shops, delicatessen, restaurants and street art. Make sure you visit the beautiful Basilica, which sits on the top of Fourvière hill, housing stunning mosaics and stained glass.”
“Checked into the Fourvière Hotel in lyon. The reception is housed in a former chapel of the old Convent of Visitation built by Bossan in 1854. The hotel is located near the top of the Roman amphitheatres, and a short stroll from the footsteps of the Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourvière.”
“A fun and interesting visit. They are a family-owned mustard factory founded in 1840, which has a cute shop, tasting room, museum, as well as guided tours. And we made our very own Dijon mustard! Once ready, serve with a freshly baked baguette, plus ham & cheese.”
