Caroline

Caroline and her husband, Adam, have decided to leave their comfortable life in Kent and headed off for a new adventure in France with their four young children. The summers spent vacationing by the Mediterranean had instilled in them a love for the outdoor life. Looking back, this was probably madness, as they had little knowledge of France and no real idea of what they were coming to. Caroline, a qualified teacher for over 20 years, loves her work running PMC Studio France. She enjoys meeting fascinating people from all over the world who come to learn or enjoy a relaxing holiday.

Adam

After working in global consulting and finance, Adam jumped at the chance to rebalance his life more in favor of family. Adam's passion for food and wine has been cultivated during these early years and he has honed his skills over the last decade living in “Garden of France”, an area rich in gastronomic delights, fabulous wines, and amazing Armagnacs. For Adam, cooking is a journey through the senses. Next to him, you will understand how local produce is made and the traditions behind it.

    "Baron-Figus is a little slice of heaven in the French countryside and provides the ideal setting to immerse yourself in a local experience. Adam provided a wonderful opportunity to cook with interesting local ingredients and come away with some tasty recipes and clever tips. I found the entire experience relaxing and a lot of fun. Carolyn and Adam are fabulous hosts who leave you feeling like an old friend catching up over great food and wine."

  • Review by B. Marie from United Kingdom

    "It was a brilliant holiday. Caroline and Adam are excellent hosts. I came back with several pieces of jewelry to many compliments. The cooking experience was fun and there was much wine tasting and laughter. It is a beautiful part of France and I was taken to some of the little villages nearby, to markets, and Toulouse too. I made new friends. It was one of the best holidays I have had. I hope to go back again!"

  • Review by P. Wilkinson from Heckmondwike, England

    "My sister and I spent a week at Baron Figues on the jewelry and cooking course - a girls holiday away from stress was the plan! Everybody involved made this a trip that will never be forgotten and forever treasured! The teaching was informal and friendly and Caroline and Adam simply couldn't do enough to make sure we had an amazing time. The surroundings, the pool, and activities were an added bonus although we were busy wine-tasting, eating local delicacies, completing jewelry projects and visiting Bordeaux! The food was phenomenal and we have come home armed with simple ways to impress our friends together with beautiful jewellery I am amazed we were able to create! I really felt that everybody made a huge effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We loved every minute of it and I would wholeheartedly recommend it - a great way to immerse yourself in rural France!

    "Had I taken the time to define what would be the perfect trip for me, I could not have imagined the trip to be as perfect as it actually was. Caroline, Adam, and their delightful children were the ultimate hosts. I am definitely planning to return to experience another vacation of a lifetime!"
