Château Vieux Moulin – the perfect setting

It was all happening in Montbrun des Corbières this weekend at Château Vieux Moulin.

Alexandre & Laurence They hosted a wonderful afternoon and evening centred around the theme of Saint Valentine. Guests were invited to sample the delicious creations of Marions les Chocolats. Marion had worked with Alexandre to offer a sample of her chocolates and his wine,true harmony!

The artist Iwona was also enticing guests with her stunning abstract paintings. Her work was a compliment to the elegant surroundings of the Domaine.

And finally, myself – Lunes Bijoux with a new collection: Nénuphar…more to follow.

The event was a great success for all concerned and I sincerely hope it will be the first of many together!

Blowing my own trumpet!

With the studio complete my thoughts can now turn to classes & teaching. It’s funny how I seem to have gone full circle in my teaching capacity. Although teaching someone how to create a piece of jewellery or art object is slightly different from A Level French & Language Consultancy etc.,

The classes at Lunes Bijoux will run as regularly as there is demand. I have decided to work to my clients needs rather than have a rigid timetable. This way the mum with 18 month old twins, the accountant with long hours and the travel rep all get what they want. I’m happy and hopefully they will be. I was amazed with the response at the opening on Saturday.

Below – in French (of course) are the exact course details

Stages en anglais & français

 

We are already looking to combine classes with wine tasting opportunities at the local caves, golf, fishing and swimming. The village has several gites alongside B&Bs. And what with the Pays Cathare mark of quality I was award in 2006 I am listed in the main tourist guides for 2008. Hopefully there is a rosy future head for Lunes Bijoux!

Now if you struggled understanding the above in French – have a listen to Jack speaking about his experience with Greek! Fantastic!
