We are awaiting your visit on the French Riviera after all those Coronavirus miseries!
With lockdowns, restrictions & frustrations, you can go back safely to a normal life.
It's time to stretch your legs, your brain and get out of confinement.

France welcomes you!

We are and remain a small French language summer school for families :adults, teenagers and children.
It has been this way for many years and we want to keep this profile with small classes of 5 - 6 students,
spaced around large tables, mostly in the garden ... under the shade of trees and parasols

We are located on the little & cosy coastal town of Saint-Raphaël on the French Riviera,
where not a single coronavirus case was declared last summer
and with no throng / crowding beaches in summer …As you will notice in our pictures

No offence to French distance learning but it will never replace the genuine and cosy
physical presence in a class with interaction between students and their teacher

The best recommendation we can advise, to ensure the seriousness of the French courses
and the pedagogical competence of our teachers, is to give a phone call to one or two

On Google we are ranked max with : 5 red stars - French Language Holidays

Welcome to Saint-Raphaël and to our family school for a meaningful French family
summer holiday 2021 in a French and pleasant environment with daily classes
