“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out for newer and richer experience.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

Are you in a group with a common interest in watercolour painting? Do you belong to a French language club or society? How about experiencing the fantastic road-cycling or immersing yourselves in the wines of the region?

2014 & 2015 saw a number of groups at Maison Dix; combining the fun of learning, seeing or creating with the all-important ‘rest & recreation’ elements (read a book, take a dip, sit & sip stroll, browse etc).

We will work with you to design a stay that really suits your group and interests. We can provide the activity experts… or bring your own! Of course, non-participating partners always welcome to come along and simply enjoy.


‘Divine Wine’

Wendy is our ‘wine professor’. She holds some of the highest qualifications attainable in the world of wine, including the highly regarded Languedoc-Roussillon Masters Certificate. Her focus on this region brings unmatched enthusiasm and knowledge about the best wines and vineyards..

‘Wonderful Watercolour’

Simon has over 25 years as a professional artist, the last 5 based here in the Languedoc. He has already helped a number of our guests; taking classes at the house as well as ‘en plein air’. Guided tuition can accommodate all levels – from beginner to those more experienced amongst you.

‘Talking French’

Helene is native to the Languedoc and a qualified, seasoned language teacher. She aims to make each day fun, interesting but not too exhausting! Work is always highly practical; mixing classes, based at Maison Dix, with ‘out-and-about’ activities in Pezenas and the surrounding villages.

‘Cycling Languedoc’

Our team includes highly experienced road cyclists with extensive local knowledge of routes, cols and ‘watering holes’. We have hosted cycle groups for two years now – promoting safety and enjoyment. If you don’t wish to bring your own bike, we can provide quality road bike rental – all personally fitted to your size, capability and experience.
