The program

Le Couloumé, with its thick walls and tiled roof, is a charming old, stone farmhouse built in the 1700s. It sits high on a hill and overlooks beautiful rolling fields.

Annie's kitchen, the heart of the house, is built on the foundation of the old winery. It offers modern conveniences, with a large island and a professional Lacanche stove, making it the perfect setting for cooking classes. Yet it has old world charm, with its plaster walls, beams, and large stone fireplace. A long farm table is where everybody gathers to share meals, play cards, and tell stories.

Annie's home is tastefully decorated with family antiques, linens, old and contemporary paintings, collections of old pottery — a mix of American comfort and French charm. The cozy bedrooms have comfortable beds and private bathrooms updated with limestone floors and new fixtures.

In warm weather the terraces and garden welcome guests and set the scene for convivial meals. In the potager, the vegetables and herbs grown are organic. Flower beds of roses, lavenders, and hydrangeas abound. A swimming pool with a gorgeous view completes the picture.
