Fees are $3,250 per person, per session, two people to a room. Each room has at least two separate beds. Because there are a limited number of rooms, each person must pay full price. If, for example, a spouse wishes to come but not participate in the cooking classes, the spouse may enjoy the excursions and other activities, but still must pay the $3,250. Four of the guest rooms have private bathrooms. Single supplement for a private room (with no room-mate) is $790.

Transportation: Public transportation is not readily available to Moutas. The easiest accessibility is train (the high speed TGV) from Paris’ Gare de Lyon train station to Montelimar, and a rental car for the one - hour drive. Or, we are about a three hour drive from Nice; two hours from Marseilles. If you are coming direct from the Paris airport, we recommend you stay a night in Valence or Avignon, and pick up your rental car there. If you prefer not to rent a car, we will arrange for a taxi to meet you and return you to Montelimar for the TGV. The supplement for such service is $250 per single person, or $350 for a couple.
