Gourmet stay around chocolate

Discover everything about chocolate during a full weekend in our guesthouse: tours, workshop, tastings...
Let us guide you, we will take care of everything!

Day 1: on your arrival from 4pm, enjoy a welcome drink. Then visit the domain and its environment before to unpack in your bedroom where a small present will be waiting for you.
For dinner, you can taste chocolate in desert but also in savory sauce for the most adventurous ones (optional !).

Day 2: start with a gourmet breakfast with chocolate spread, Celaya hot chocolate, chocolate flavored tea or coffee for addicts... but also traditional drinks, fruit juices, and of course homemade jams.
Take a tour of Lamastre farmers market before enjoying a lunch in a cosy little restaurant of Lamastre (panoramic view on the city from the terrace).
Early afternoon departure by historic steam train to Tournon through the gorges of Doux.
Visit the Valrhôna Cité du Chocolat in Tain l'Hermitage, tasting and workshop on the pod or praline. You may stop at the shop to bring back a few chocolates!
Back to Lamastre for a wine tasting at Desbos: tasting of local wines ... ending with October Harvest Viognier for a happy marriage with cocoa.
Dinner together at the guesthouse to try specialties and local produce.

Day 3: another gourmet breakfast!
Visit Laurence Molès, patissier/chocolatier master and taste Lou Pisadou, a chestnut pastry created by Ardeche's pastry union.
Now is the time to say goodbye ... or you may extend your stay (at promotional rate!) if you want to further explore our beautiful region!
