Imagine the taste of delicately aged cheese, a lovely burgundy and freshly baked baguettes – it’s enough to transport you to a provincial French kitchen. Now, combine that with the sights and sounds of the Australian landscape.
This is exactly what Saffire Freycinet is offering – combining the best of French flavours and Australia’s natural beauty as their latest guest experience – Le Pique Nique, offering French-inspired al fresco dining overlooking Australia’s first national park – Freycinet. Le Pique Nique Experience costs $240 per guest and takes place every Wednesday and Saturday from 9am to 3:30pm.
This unique experience takes guests on a guided 5km walk to explore a side of the Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay that is typically unseen by many. Guests will then arrive at a secret location nestled by the crystal white sands and azure waters of South Hazards Beach, to be met by Saffire’s renowned chef and indulge in the ultimate gourmet picnic experience, with a bounty of locally sourced produce with a French flavour – including charcuterie, oysters, barbequed seafood, free range meets, farmhouse cheese and petit desserts.
Guests then have the option to sip on locally crafted wines or treat themselves to some fun in classic French style – a game of Bocce with a drink of Pastis on the beach, or simply sit back and enjoy the view.
