French in France
7 rue du Bas
During the school holidays, we offer seven or ten night French immersion stays at our lovely Burgundy gite (Gite du Marronnier), set in rolling countryside in the heart of France. This includes full board and one hour of French tuition plus an hour of guided French study per (non-journey) day tailored to the academic needs of the student. We also offer travel to cultural and other visits on all non-journey days to be arranged with the students. Examples of trips enjoyed by students last year include watching le spectacle de St Fargeau, exploring Guédelon (reconstruction of chateau using medieval methods now a top attraction in France), shopping in Auxerre, as well as sporting activities including, walking and cycling in picturesque countryside and French villages, swimming in Toucy and climbing at le parc d’aventures du Bois de la Folie While welcoming individuals and their families, we also work directly with schools to provide tailored stays for their French language students, taking away much of the time and effort required in organising such a school trip. Our stays allow schools with smaller numbers of French language students to offer a structured French immersion experience to support their studies.
