4 days to explore, learn and exchange, understand how to identify plants with certainty, bring them into the kitchen, and take a different approach to food. Join us to concoct surprising, tasty dishes!
A gîte that is a home from home. Since this is all about conviviality, the gîte has been chosen with care: in natural surroundings, with a bucolic garden filled with sunshine and a dining room with an alpine atmosphere, but also a table football and a petanque ground for relaxation! Everyone will find their own corner for the night among the 7 rooms, in the dormitory or in a more private room.

Good humour and kindness are the watchwords for your daily explorations, featuring riddles, treasure hunts and group challenges... there will many occasions to enrich your knowledge and collapse into laughter!

sense - by touching, observing and smelling the plants, you will learn the very simple notions of practical botany.
