What to expect during your Immersion stay?
Our Boutique School offers French Language Immersion programs that will allow you to combine French courses and discovering the charming Region of Bordeaux.
Stay with French locals and experience an authentic lifestyle!
1- Your Private Cottage
We live in a renovated Old Farm Cottage. The house was build 100 years ago and belonged to a winemaker. We still have the old Wine Press in our barn! Not much value though, but a piece of History! The house has been renovated with the famous Stone of Bordeaux so it is very charming.
Your private accommodation is adjacent to our house, so you will have your privacy.
Come alone, with your family or friends and enjoy your private cottage in the middle of the vineyards.
You can chill out to the sound of the cicadas, enjoy a nice glass of local wine on your private patio. The view is spectacular!
2- Private Classes
Your French Homestay includes classes every morning with your professional tutor.
I can accompany you to visit the area once or twice according the lenght of your stay- eg. a visit to Saint Emilion, a guided tour at Toulouse-Lautrec's house, a visit of one of the numerous Castle of the region- according to your interests.
We have the possibility to share one meal per day. Our Option 2 offers the dinner on your arrival day and lunches otherwise.
You will find more information about Excursion - Classes - Meals in our section program.
"I had the most positive experience in my immersion week with Edwige at her home near Bordeaux. Edwige put me at ease the moment I arrived and that continued all week, regardless of whether I was having my structured lessons, going on an excursion with her, sharing a meal or asking questions and discussing things about the area.
This very relaxed atmosphere really facilitates learning and I found myself conversing with her without feeling at all self conscious, even when I stumbled over a word or “went blank”.
Edwige is obviously a very experienced French teacher."
