- Join us in our art-deco inspired villa in south west France to enjoy a short break
with a real difference
- Relax as hard as you like during your fully inclusive 2 night
You arrive on your first day and can relax in the grand salon, explore the medieval town of Confolens or discover our 3-acre parkland garden. Aperitifs are served on the terrace before you enjoy a freshly prepared 3-course evening meal accompanied by award-winning Bordeaux wines. After a generous breakfast the following morning, it's time to talk bees... why are they so important to our world and what's involved in looking after them? You will get to see close-up images of the bees, learn about stings and try out the different tools needed for beekeeping. You then enjoy a blind honey tasting, discovering just how different honeys taste depending on the nectar the bees have collected. Then it's time to light your smokers, put on your beesuits and head up to the hives to see what life is like inside a colony.
There's lots of opportunity to ask questions and take photos and you will enjoy at least 4 hours of bee-related activities, including helping out with the seasonal jobs that need doing in the hives. This is a truly unique break bringing together the opportunity to learn about and spend time with honeybees and enjoy the best that the Charente countryside has to offer.
