Event description

Description

The fine Maison de Maître of Domaine de Cambou slowly took shape with meticulous restoration and inspired landscaping of its 6 acre site, so much so that the gardens are finalists in the Society Of Garden Designers Awards this year.

Inspired by their neighbour, a Paris trained chef, who has explored the culinary delights of the region, and their friends’ glowing reports, we are inviting 10-12 people to join us on our luxury Gardens and Gourmet breaks in 2018.

Learn about plants and garden design with RHS Gold Medal winner and winner of the 2017 SGD People's Choice Award, Fiona Stephenson. And, enjoy strolls around the domaine and an aperitif with friend, Jean Donies at Les Jardins de Quercy, a Jardin Remarquable a few hundred yards from Cambou.

Cook with the chef extraordinaire Charlotte Haycraft with seasonal produce, visit to the nearby market in Villefranche de Rouerge to select the best locally produced culinary delights.

Enjoy wine tasting (the wine region is Gaillac, little known but with highly individual and well respected wines often grown with bio-dynamique principles and care)

Nearby is the intact mediaeval town of St Antonin Noble Val with its arcaded squares, fine mediæval architecture and wonderful Sunday market. By the River Aveyron, it lies on one of the ancient pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostela
In Albi there is the Toulouse Lautrec Museum in homage to his birthplace. At Rodez, a modern masterpiece museum dedicated to Soulages’s work and to Lenoir at Montricaux. Art, antiques and history enrich the area, best known for the Cathar bastide hill towns.

With fine vistas and intimate spaces the domaine became a magnet to wildlife. The trees, shrubs and flowers are a haven for birds and insects greedy for nectar. A pair of sparrow hawks have taken up residence and treat the domaine as their own personal kingdom. Barn and Little owls also call it home.
An oasis of calm and beauty, and designed to an exceptional standard, it now has a micro-climate all of its own, and is the ideal place to relax and unwind.

From this serene setting there is plenty of exploration, learning connection and enjoyment to experience.
