…it’s a photography holiday..but not as we know it, Jim…


Camerahols are dead, long live Vendée Holidays. Just when I thought the time had come for me to perfect the art of selfishly lazing around a pool, a vibrant young couple, Matt and Emily Clark, have recruited me to work with them on the photography, and specialised food photography long weekend courses that are a part of their exciting new activity holidays here in the Vendée. Alumni and alumnae of Camerahols will remember that the main premise of our course was to relax in a peaceful environment with plenty of good food and wine….with the option of looking through the viewfinder of your camera every now and then. Vendée Holidays aspire to the same ethos with the added benefit of enjoying their courses in a luxurious house in the heart of the Vendée countryside…..check out the details on Vendée Holidays….they also offer golfing, cycling and yoga holidays.

    One never knows what lies beyond the corner – I can see a smile on your face all the way from here 🙂 ! [And your temperatures are most reasonable for January . . .]

    • You are a seer! Temperatures are indeed mild which, as the locals remind me, means that the bacteria and microbes are not being killed by freezing temperatures…then again, I don’t think farmers are well known for their ability at spotting silver linings:)

  7. Dang you, Roger. I clicked the link before I could help myself. Happy New Year!

    Though I would greatly miss the dinners at your table, this sounds grand!

    • We’re working on some interesting plans with visiting chefs from the UK. We will also be cooking on planchas, in pizza ovens and fire pits…a maybe doing a weekend with Argentinian beef and wines…some interesting stuff:)
