Beekeeping Taster Sessions for 2017
Would you like a holiday with a real difference?  Why not try our beekeeping experiences for a relaxing and truly memorable holiday. Or maybe a half-day taster session is more your thing?

Join us in our art-deco inspired villa on the banks of the river Vienne, surrounded by verdant Charentaise countryside and typically French, medieval towns and villages.  Every visitor is more than just a customer; you are guests in our home and will enjoy a classical, weekend house party atmosphere from the moment you arrive (think Downton Abbey without the stiff collars!).

With 3 and 6 night beekeeping holidays to choose from, there's something for everyone looking for a new and fun experience.  And at less than an hour from Limoges and Angoulême and within 90 minutes from Poitiers airports it's as easy to get here as it is to enjoy your time with us.

If beekeeping holidays are not your thing, we also offer luxurious and comfortable chambres d'hôtes (bed and breakfast) rooms all year round.  Click the images below to find out more and be inspired to book your next break!

13 Bees Blog

by Thirteen Bees 12 Nov, 2017
Please forgive the self-indulgent nature of our blog today as we're pretty pleased to have been picked out for France Magazine's feature on learning and experience holidays in France.  Read it here... 

It's great that experiences beyond the 'parachutes and bungee jumps' traditional things to do are being included and in particular that lots of the places featured are centered around the environment and de-stressing - key drivers for us, anyway.  For us, experiences and related breaks away are about creating amazing and unique memories so who fancies being surrounded by 50,000 bees and having their photo taken?

The feature got us to thinking about what our ideal experience breaks would be and we couldn't come up with a short list of less than about 20 so I think we'll need a time machine to make our bucket list... what about you?  What would be on your bucket list of experience breaks?  It's great there is so much choice beyond sitting on one's bum all day on a beach!

It's also great to see our good friends at Astrofarm included for their stargazing experiences which are amazing.  And to see our neighbour Fred front and centre in the headline photo... he knows which one he is underneath that suit :-)
