Course price

We have kept our prices the same for the last three years, but the post-Brexit fall in the value of the pound has forced us, reluctantly, to increase our prices to £840 this year.  The cost of the course excludes travel to and from Suèvres but does include:

Because all your meals are provided all that you will need otherwise is pocket-money for coffees and drinks out.

If you wish to do the optional French Cookery course there will be an additional fee of 40 euros.

Travel is not included, but we will collect you from Mer railway station between 3 and 6 pm and bring you to Suèvres by car if you let us know which train you will be on, and we will return you to the station at the end of the course.
