Where is the Workshop : in an authentic castle

The Château de Saint-Loup in Albret in the Lot-et-Garonne
The sites of the Castle of Saint Loup were already inhabited in the times of Celts and Romans. A Romanesque church is built in the 12th century on the ruins of an ancient Roman house. A castle borders this church on its north side. Foundations of this era remain in the present construction.
The castle as it is today dates from the 18th and 19th centuries.

After the lessons, you will have the opportunity to relax in the park, to visit the many tourist sites nearby or to go for a walk in the surrounding nature and to discover a landscape that is called "Little Tuscany" in reference to the famous Italian landscapes.
