These are the 2015 season activities we offer you at Puech Blanc to make your stay a memorable and relaxing time

 

Special Dinner Party 4 Course Meal

 

Cook and learn with our special evening meal once a week when Andrea and Ian invite you to join in a special evening meal during your stay at Puech Blanc. Each week we enjoy a wonderful dinner party with a meal cooked by Renee, a professional chef experienced in the local cuisine. You have the opportunity to assist Renee and learn at the same time, and afterwards we all eat together in the courtyard under the stars - and sample the Gaillac wines. Each summer this has been a highlight of the holiday for many of our guests. Renee brings her own organic vegetables that she grows herself along with local fresh fruit and herbs from our own garden . Here are some recipes which a lot of our guests ask for us to post here on our site. To organise this event we need a minimum of 4 guests.

[ 4 course dinner is 30 euros per person - including all drinks ]

Wine tasting Tour

 

To introduce you to the Gaillac wine, we organise a trip to a near by wine domain. Here the owner will explain you about how the wine is made and we will taste some. We will be there to help you with the translating. Afterwards we will have a pick-nic and enjoy a bottle of wine together. (depending on a minimum of 4 guests)

[ the tour is 10 euros p.p including wine and pick-nic ]

Watching the Stars

 

Our local friend "David" is a specialist in explaining you all about the stars. He has constructed a large telescope and will show you galaxies, planets and things you would not believe were possible to see. David has lots of books and beautiful pictures to show you and has time to answer any questions you may have. (depending on a minimum of 4 guests)

He is also an active member of a professional observertry.

[ the stars are 10 euros p.p ]

Jeu-de-Boules

 

We have created a jeu-de-boules area which is available any time and each gite is equipped with a boules kit. Each week we all get together and have a fun competition and enjoy a glass or two of wine at the same time.

 

Badminton

  There is a badminton court set up in the garden, and all the equipment is provided.
