Cooking Course at Mille Etoiles with Edwin Severijn 22nd - 28th June

Four years ago, Christophe and I spent our honeymoon in California and stayed a few nights in these amazing yurts in Big Sur. So two years ago, we decided to spend our anniversary in a yurt, but this time in France! We found a place in the Ardeche called Canvaschic, which is run by a young, English couple, and literally only a few steps from the Ardeche River. We asked for a romantic yurt, which was decorated in pinks and reds and tucked into the forest. The yurts are only lit by candles, unless it's changed in the past two years. There are bikes available, plenty of walking trails and canoeing not far. And on top of all that, they are offering a 4 day cooking course in June. Read below or click HERE for more information.
