Enjoy France’s Food & Wine Culture

Where to start? France has so many culinary experiences to enjoy that it would be unjust to have a start and end to a long list of what can be enjoyed. Its epicurean culture and heritage makes the country a centre of excellence.

It continues to produce world renowned chefs and restaurants. Each region is fiercely proud of its specialities and locally sourced produce.

From Champagne to Cognac, Sauterne to Sancerre, Pouilly to Pauillac, the country’s wine producing regions, vineyards and Chateaux are again too many to list.

French Leave Holidays can offer you some exceptional culinary experiences. We have some amazing cookery schools set in traditional Chateaux surrounded by vineyards for you to enjoy. Please ask us for your preference of region and choice of culinary experience so that we can find the perfect match for you.

By air, most of the UK airports have at least one flight to France’s 170 arrival points covered by lowcost, no frills and legacy airlines all with the common factor of offering good value fares and short flight times. Our French Leave Holidays flight-inclusive packages are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. Please refer to our booking conditions for information, or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL certificate visit

By rail, French National Railways (SNCF) has and extensive rail network with direct Eurostar and good connecting services to everywhere in France. This is an excellent alternative to flying or taking your own car and most courses are a short taxi ride from their nearest train station.

Booking with French Leave Holidays: we will discuss with you and recommend the best holiday to meet your requirements. We endeavour to eventually gain first hand knowledge of all our products to be able to relay our personal experiences so please ask us for our opinion. Where we haven’t yet visited, we have at least established a face to face relationship with the supplier which forms the basis of our selection.
