  • Mum and I are just back from our first class and I have to say it has been the best experience. The staff are outstanding and so talented in their fields. I can’t recommend it enough.

  • A unique place. With time to learn, time to teach, time to think and relax. And the most important thing to have a magic experience around nature and chocolate.
