Courses and Workshops in France
We have been organizing creative holidays, courses and workshops in France for 25 years. This is a guarantee that you have found and chosen the right address. The success of the Mas Blanc in the South of France is not solely our merit. That we invested almost 10 years in restoring the former Benedictine monastery, with care and love, was certainly important. Nevertheless, it is certain that the great strength comes from the building and the location of the Mas Blanc itself. We owe that overwhelmingly beautiful location to the monks who discovered it in 1147 AD. But vitally important are our teachers. They not only master their profession, but are also chosen for their talent to offer you a fascinating and relaxing learning holiday in France. To top this off, our chef ensures that you will also be taken well care of in the culinary field.
And what is our contribution ?
Right from the start in 1994 we have succeeded in maintaining, the high quality that the Mas Blanc offers for its courses and holidays in the South of France, affordable. And that is surely a nice bonus. However, we still hear too often that participants doubted whether they would reserve because the costs were so favourable compared with other offers. They wondered whether this was too good to be true !!!
Each course offers enough spare time to enjoy nature and culture. You can go hiking or cycling in the woods around the Mas Blanc. Avignon, Uzès, Nîmes and Montpellier (the beach) are cities in southern France that are certainly worth a holiday visit.
All this in the former monastery coming straight out a fairy tale, Le Mas Blanc, where true hospitality, beautiful nature and excellent food guarantee a good creative holiday. The beautiful location, the historical background and last but not least the atmosphere are the sources of inspiration that will make you feel at ease with us.
In the unlikely event that the teacher is unable to attend, the Mas Blanc has the duty to take care of replacements. An extra security for you.
