Vegan, gourmet haven in the Normandy countryside
Set in a small countryside village at the doors of Normandy, the Domaine de Broc-Fontaine is home to the renown Gentle Gourmet concept. On the vast and charming property, a myriad of world-class courses are offered for both future professionals and passionate learners of vegan pastry, cuisine, catering, well-being and veganic permaculture. We welcome participants all year long for unique vegan experiences coming from decades of vegan pioneering creativity.
Located on a beautiful former farming estate, diverse possibilities are offered, from full-board gourmet stays with meals and cooking classes to self-catering in our adorable cottage which has its own private garden. The word that always comes to guests mind when speaking about their stay her is how paradisiac and magical it is - and we couldn't agree more! The property is divided into different gardens - one of which has a large brook that crosses it
Your hosts include a mother and daughter vegan chef team whoare the creators of the Gentle Gourmet which was Europe's first gourmet vegan restaurant and caterer as well as the on site Gentle gourmet Institute.
