Food and Drink at Knitting Holidays at France
Mealtimes are always an important part of the knitting retreats, we try to offer varied and healthy menus using local produce and seasonal fruit and veg. But nobody is a saint and it is a holiday, so there are a few naughty desserts, delicious home made bread, cakes and of course fresh baguettes and croissant from the local Boulangerie.

You can help yourself to tea and coffee at any time of the day or night.

Note: We can cater for all dietary requirements, but please be aware if you have any serious food allergies there is a risk of cross-contamination.
