Following the success of this year's Food and Wine Lovers’ Weekend at Domaine de Beausoleil, we are delighted announce an event in May 2019. The format of the weekend will be similar to the other events with cooking demonstrations and food information sessions when we will be sharing some of our best recipes to give you the opportunity to learn something new or just revitalise your interest in cooking. Places are limited to a maximum of 16 and the prices below are all-inclusive. There are two price levels depending on what accommodation you choose.
It is even better value if you are interested in staying on for a full week – so just let us know.
