THE SITE

We are geographically in the Center of France . The workshop takes place in the countryside of Sancerre, a beautiful village built on a rocky outcrop surrounded by vineyards. The town is home to its now world-famous wines and also of a famous goat cheese. We are accomodated in an old mill, which has been remarkably renovated, located 10 km from Sancerre among the hilly landscapes of groves and meadows of the Berry area.
