Where Are Creative Vacances Courses?

Around and About La Moreau in the Charente Maritime

The Charente Maritime is a largely undiscovered area of France, south of the Loire and north of Bordeaux. The gulf stream ensures a good climate and the region is second only to the Cote D’Azure with regard to the house of sunshine. It is a rare day when we don’t see the sun at some point.

   La Moreau is a small hamlet in the heart of the French countryside, only a 20 minute drive from the historic towns of Saintes and Cognac and less than an hour from the coast.


There is no easy public transport to these historic towns. So if you think you would like to explore or do any shopping, we would suggest you bring your car. Whatever you choose we are in an ideal location for a relaxing holiday.

The property is surrounded by vines and sunflowers. The vines produce the eau de vie for the famous Cognac houses of Hennessy and Martell.

Although in the middle of nowhere we are fortunate to have a micro brewery – Brasserie de Bercloux- just a couple of minutes walk away. The french owners do speak english and welcome the Creative Vacances students. It is unsuprisingly very popular at the end of the afternoon session.

A Creative Vacances holiday course is a chance to indulge your music hobbies while getting a flavour of the real France.
