Jaap your Teacher

The course is given by Jaap van der Wal. He is an artist and was educated atthe Royal Academy in The Hague. He graduated in 1993. His own work includes drawings, paintings and sculptures. Jaap regularly exhibits in France and the Netherlands. He encourages his students in Saint Bérain especially to create their own signature and style. The different techniques that he uses are primarily intended to support the visual process. Find out where someone is interested, enthuse them into pioneering inspiration... That's Jaap's big challenge. The mixture of thechniques, styles and levels ensures there is no question of competion. Everyone gets to have their own space.

A relaxed atmpospher, and inspiring holiday

Ahmed, your cook

The kitchen is in the expert hands of Ahmed Mehdeb. For several years he has taken charge with great pleasure of the kitchen at Saint Bérain. His surprising dishes are colourful and tasteful. He combines materials from our own garden with traditional French products to offer a Mediterranean cuisine with Arabic influences. During the three course meal, enjoy his creativity. Ahmed, with his warm character, often provides a sounding board for the many impressions and experiences gained by students. We always use fresh products in our kitchen. Fruit and vegetables come from our own vegetable garden. The meat comes from the Auvergne and eggs from our own chickens.

Fresh, local and healthy...
