It was a lot of fun. We loved learning to cook French cuisine and seeing some of the French countryside. Gilles is a wonderful host and teacher. It was one of our favourite parts of our trip.

We stayed in a hotel that we were very unsatisfied with, so I can't help you there. But I can tell you that the cooking class we took with Gilles was one of the highlights of our trip. Don't miss it.
