Program of your French language immersion stay near Bordeaux
Just a stone's throw from Saint Emilion and Sauternes, come and enjoy a unique Homestay at your French teacher.
You can choose from
Option 1 : Self-catering holiday cottage with French classes
Option 2 : We share one meal per day and one excursion per week.
Here is a suggestion for your immersion program:
You can choose up to 3 hours a day of French classes. We usually study in the morning, finding the right balance between formal classes and more casual practice walking around the area, if you wish.
I like to use authentic documents like articles and videos and play games to help you speak as much as possible!
We have the possibility to share one meal per day. We will share dinner on your arrival day and otherwise we will share lunches.
For a dinner or a lunch you want to prepare for yourself, you can either buy
some food and cook it in your own flat or eat out if you have your own car!
I enjoy cooking simple but tasty meals with fresh vegetables. We will combine local produce with aromatic herbs and accompany them with a nice local wine. I will also be happy to adapt my food to your special diet: I can cook vegetarian, vegan or whatever your diet may require under your guidance.
"As a vegetarian who travels a lot I find it is not always easy to both eat locally and vegetarian during my travels. Edwige prepared balanced, varied vegetarian food that was prepared with local ingredients during my stay. It was amazing." Tanya, Canada, 2018
Excursions and activities
Learn French and explore the region!
As part of your authentic French experience, we can arrange one afternoon visiting or doing an activity together.
There is the possibility to explore a medieval village together, going to a local market, visiting a castle, a museum or simply going for a ride or a walk.
There are plenty of brochures in your cottage for you to choose from.
We also have 2 bikes you can borrow!
