In-villa Private Chef

Visiting the local markets & boucheries and cooking a few dishes is one of the joys of holidaying in France.

What's also fun is having a chef cook a few meals for you in the relaxing surroundings of your own villa.

Regional specialities? Gourmet BBQ? Seafood platters? Paella? In-villa chefs will discuss your requirements and use their trusted local sources to create delicious menus for you.

At some of our villas, there is already a chef available - please browse Aquitaine rentals with chef.

Equally, we have a supply of experienced, talented and trusted 'holiday chefs' that can be hired at your holiday villa, subject to availability. 


Chef Bio - Vincent Bachelot

Based at the lovely Domaine d'Orx near Hossegor, Vincent is resident chef there and also the nearby luxury villa Le Vignau.

AA's UK staff have a habit of staying at Domaine d'Orx on trips to Aquitaine - purely to test the cooking for our clients of course! 

Vincent has over 12 years experience working as a chef in Paris, Morocco (5 star hotel as a consultant chef), Château de la Colaisseère (4 star château hotel de France) as in-house chef and has spent the last 6 years working as a private chef in the Landes.

He is passionate about food and works only with the freshest, local produce. He enjoys talking to clients about their menu, whether it be for a special occassion celebration meal, or a family dinner, to ensure that everyone enjoys their meal and gets exactly what they want.

Vincent loves the social side of cooking too and is more than happy to have guests who are equally passionate about food, join him in the kitchen, to help with prepping or just enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching !

Here's what some of our clients say about Vincent...

"Highlight of the holiday was Vincent's fantastic cooking."

"Holiday made extra special by Vincent's wonderful cooking and fantastic desserts."

"The cooking is absolutely wonderful."

"The meals cooked for us by Vincent were superb. What a gem."

Chef Bio - Dan Jackson - Alps2Atlantic

We started working with Dan in 2016 and he is one of many associates in our network who make the bi-annual migration between the Alps and south west Atlantic coast. Dan brings 15 years of experience as a holiday chef and also as head chef in a 5 Star boutique hotel.

Think of this as a 'dinner party' in your villa - Dan will agree with you a set starter / main course / dessert rather than a menu of choices.

For more information about what Dan can offer, please see this dedicated webpage for menu ideas, prices and more details.
