Join award-winning author Jacalyn S Burke on an unforgettable retreat in the picturesque Spa town of Jonzac, South West France, the inspirational setting for her novel: The Custodians. Visit the places mentioned in her book including a 14th Century chateau castle.

Immerse yourself in the local charms of an open air market, bistro cafes, Roman history, farm to table restaurants and a natural thermal Spa. Jonzac is nestled amidst the breathtaking landscapes of the Charente-Maritime, just 55-minutes from Bordeaux and a 3-hour train ride to/from Paris. This Prize is for YOU to enjoy.
