Location

The Location

Burgundy, considered the heart of French gastronomy, is renowned for its exquisite wines and local culinary delicacies such as coq au vin. Marigny-le-Cahouet, a charming French village, will be your home for your cooking lessons. It is located on the beautiful Burgundy canal. It is a pleasure to walk, jog, cycle along the canal or simply enjoy the stunning scenery. The village is beautiful all year round with the summer sun blazing down on the village or the autumn leaves glowing in deep reds and oranges. Truly a collage of splendid colors!
