Where to sleep
Short stay students have a choice of several off-site accommodation in charming local village inns as well as hotels in nearby Agen. Longer program housing is available for Butchery & Charcuterie students.
Although there are many places to stay, we recommend the following lodgings because of the warm and friendly welcome they provide for our guests as well as the character and charm of their accommodation.
Le Prince Noir is our nearest hotel neighbor owned by the very welcoming English-speaking Amandine & Marc Duverneuil. Fresh country chic rooms open onto the quiet courtyard or swimming pool and garden and the new restaurant offers evening meals jsut a few steps from your room. Le Prince Noir is just 4 kilometers from Camont and those wishing to bike or walk to work off extra foie gras can use the paved canalside towpath- le voie verte that follows the Canal de Garonne between Bordeaux and Marseille.

Hotel Henri IV is in one of our favorite towns- charming Nérac, the real life setting for Joanne Harris’ book ‘Chocolat’. This intimate inn is run by Julien and Anne, your English-speaking welcoming hosts; the rooms are small, simple and straightforward as befitting their modest rates.
The charm of The Henri IV is that you are in the middle of this “village remarquable”, well known for its great Saturday market, small shops, bars, cafes and SIX excellent butcher shops. For those not wanting to rent or hire a car, you can see everything on foot or bike and take a taxi or car service between Nerac and Camont. Nerac is about 20 minutes from Camont; the hotel can arrange for transportation to and from Camont. For more information and photographs click on http://www.hotelhenriiv.fr/.
