Five-star ‘Gastronomic Experience’ in France’s fine-wine region – Bordeaux from £876 pp with Kirker Holidays
Nicknamed ‘the balcony of Bordeaux’, the pretty French village of Bouliac is a mere ten-minute drive from the stylish and cosmopolitan city of Bordeaux.
Boasting a picture-postcard-perfect square and gorgeous rural views, it’s also home to the five-star Le Saint James, where gastronomes can indulge in fine dining at the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, try local delicacies at its charming bistro or brush up their own culinary skills at its state-of-the-art cooking school.
New for 2014, a three-night Gastronomic Experience costs from £876 pp (two sharing) including flights (Gatwick), return private car transfers, three nights’ accommodation in a deluxe room with breakfast, two cookery lessons and two dinners with drinks – one in the restaurant, one at the bistro.
