The winner will receive one night in a luxury, en-suite double room for two complete with breakfast, dinner and a bottle of wine. The intimate, “haute-cuisine” restaurant serves two gourmet menus celebrating the cuisine of the Périgord with delicious fresh, seasonal produce. To ensure the best wine pairing with your menu, a bottle of white or red wine will be personally selected for you.

This wonderful break can be taken any time in 2020, excluding July/August and Public holidays, and has a prize value of around EUR 300. Closing date for entries is 8 July, 2020.
