French courses at the teacher’s house in Aix-en-Provence

Our French courses in Aix-en-Provence provide a magnificent environment to study French in what we call “la belle France”.

Aix-en-Provence is situated at 30 km north of Marseille in the department of Bouches-du-Rhône in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region.

Aix (pronounced like the letter X) has a rich history with a prosperous period starting during the Roman Empire era. The city was founded in 123 BC.

Aix has been a prominent university town for many centuries, starting as early as 1409.
Today it is still an important educational centre with many higher education institutes, schools and colleges.

This authentic Provencal city attracts many visitors from around the world who enjoy its slow-paced lifestyle, prestigious heritage, history, architecture, and the “Provençal douceur de vivre”.

It has an elegance that reflects its stunning heritage. Aix has splendour and style with a vibrant street life and a pleasant sunny climate. It is also the place of birth of Paul Cézanne (1839 – 1906), a major French Post-Impressionist painter.

On the footsteps of Paul Cézanne

Visitors can open the door of Cézanne’s studio, enter his private world, discover the house where he began painting, and follow a trail of sites that he frequented. Some of his work can be seen in the space dedicated to him in the Musée Granet. “Discover Cézanne in Provence” shows the inextricable relationship between the artist’s art and his native region.

Don’t miss the opportunity to have a drink at Les Deux Garçons on Cours Mirabeau, a typical French bistrot named after Cézanne and his childhood friend Emile Zola. This café is where they used to spend time after school. It’s also a place that was visited by many other famous artists such as Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Alain Delon, Francis Poulenc…

Delicious local products

Students who study French in Aix-en-Provence get the opportunity to discover and taste numerous succulent local products. The choice goes from the traditional Macaron, local honey, lavender essence, olives and olive oil, the fougasse bread and provencal cheeses, the calicon d’Aix, rosé wines, to the Provençal herbs, and of course the delicious Cuisine of Provence.

Outside Aix-en-Provence visitors can explore a myriad picturesque towns and villages and natural treasures.
