Oyster Farming, Pyla-Sur-Mer, France
The serene views at Villa Serini are worth waking up for — rise with the sun and watch it ascend over the sea from the expansive stone patio. Or, go one further and take to the seas yourself for a unique fishing experience. Setting out in a flat-bottomed boat in the early morning with an experienced oyster farmer as your guide, you’ll wade in the water near his oyster farm at low tide. Learn the craft of oyster farming and about the mollusks’ life cycle, and attempt to pry them open yourself. Assemble around the farm table to taste the oysters you’ve just farmed while sipping on white wine specially chosen by Le Collectionist’s oenologist.
