Welcome to
Holiday Courses In France

    Painting, Cooking, Walking & French Language

    You can come on a Painting course or improve your French Language with one of our two French Language Courses. Enjoy a week learning about French Country Cooking (and eating and drinking), or stride off on Guided Walks into the clean air and green of the Charente Countryside.

    It’s fine if you choose to come on your own (no single supplement), or you come with a friend or partner doing a different course to you. Your Partner or Friend could even come to do absolutely nothing at all. Nothing, naturally except to enjoy the same fine food, good company, spacious rooms and tranquil surroundings as everybody else.

    When it comes to holiday learning courses & workshops, L’Age Baston has a long established reputation for excellence. That reputation is based on the gentle care of professional tutors, outstanding accommodation and delightful, friendly hospitality.

    Whatever you come to do at L’Age Baston and wherever in the world you travel from you can be sure of a warm welcome and a holiday to treasure.

    Holiday Courses 2024


    • Please thank your parents for all their hard work. I do know how much we all enjoyed our trip. We really had a fabulous week. Thanks so much.

      – Audrey, UK
    • Thank you again for a fantastic experience at your beautiful home and art instruction from Jenny Halstead. I believe I was given more individualize instruction from Jenny (in a week) than I received from an entire semester at college level.

      Your ambiance was great! The food was great! A bientot.

      – Betty, U.S.A.
    • Just to thank you both so much for the marvelous week in your beautiful Chateau. Your hospitality was just amazing – in fact everything was perfect from start to finish. We will look forward to seeing you again next year or perhaps even sooner!

      – Eileen, London
    • I can’t believe I’ve been back for nearly a week. I just had to write to ask you to thank John and Alex, on my behalf, for being the most perfect hosts and for our wonderful time at L’Age Baston. Maybe you’ve heard about our poetry group – we certainly made enough noise, singing and dancing into the early hours! We were serious when it came to our writing sessions though. Anyway, I loved every minute of my stay with them and felt genuinely sad to say goodbye. Who knows if we’ll ever meet again? I’d like to think so. Thank you too, for all your organisation – Audrey and I loved staying in the Guardian’s house. Warm regards.

      – Jean, UK
