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.

"Dream come true"

Loved the location, very peaceful, wonderful tutors. Felt like I had know Caroline and Adam my whole life as they made me feel so welcome. It was like being at a fiends house. Learnt a lot of interesting things not only about the jewellery making and cooking, but Caroline and Adam where fantastic tour guides.

I loved everything about our holiday! Our gorgeous hosts Caroline and Adam who cared for and spoiled us! Learning new skills in jewellery making from master craftswoman Caroline. Having wonderful meals outside under the awning with the family. Swimming in their lovely pool. Learning some super dishes from chef Adam and enjoying his cuisine every evening. Trips around the district to historic towns and lovely meals out. Visits to local vineyards and Distilleries!

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 were 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!

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!

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 jewelry 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!

Absolutely brilliant course, and highly recommended! Caroline is the best teacher, and I learned so much about different aspects of metal clay work. I made some lovely pieces to show off to my friends! Coupled with the amazing food and great accommodation, this was the best course!
