Do you love cheese? Fancy eating a snail? Find it all at the Como house and gardens at this year’s Paris-to-Provence festival.

Hang out in the replica French village, sample some wine and scoff down some croissants.

If you don’t already appreciate chocolate enough, take part in a chocolate appreciation class.

You can feel part of the absolute monarchy in the Marie Antoinette ‘Let them eat cake’ contest. Have the final say when you judge the best French inspired cake.

Book into one of the master classes on offer and you can become a connoisseur of champagne in the Champagne Dame class.

If you prefer the hard stuff take part in the Spirits of France class and learn the difference between Cognac and Armagnac.

Or show off to you friends once you’ve learnt the art of making everything from macaroons to the infamous croquembouche in one of Pierrick Boyer’s master classes.

Explore the French marketplace where you can find anything from gourmet goods to chic home wares.

With plenty of activities and entertainment there’s something for everyone at Paris-to-Provence.

Festivities commence Friday 22, November and run from midday until 8pm. Saturday the festival comes to life from 10am – 6pm and Sunday from 10am – 4pm.
