The French House Party offers specialist holiday cooking or arts residential courses operated by the highest-calibre tutors at an eight-bedroom house with pool, tennis court and boules-pitch close to the Canal du Midi near spectacular Carcassonne - we're talking chauffeurs and chic, fizz and fine food, personal service and attention to detail. Individuals may join French House Party's regular summer arts courses including Creative Writing with the much-lauded Sarah Hymas and Dean Friedman's Songwriting course for aspiring songwriters and performers - an exclusive opportunity to learn from and jam with one of contemporary music's most original musical lyricists whose hit songs include "Lucky Stars" and "Lydia". The French House Party Gastro Academy is the only all-inclusive culinary vacation school of its kind and calibre in the region, with hands-on tuition from first-class French chefs during breaks of between 3 and 7 days. Other than flights costs, prices are absolutely all-inclusive. Tailor-made group celebrations, golf, wedding or corporate breaks are a speciality.

We stayed with Myra for two nights and she was an amazing host. The house is really spacious and very comfortable with a large lounge, games room with a pool table. Outside has a great pool and plenty of sun loungers.

Hi Matt - and thanks for the lovely remarks. You forgot to mention your own heroics when you were with us - swimming at night in the freezing cold pool ....? (If only the October weather had been warmer). You deserved a medal. Moira
