Our French courses in Provence

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

Our French immersion programs are offered in the heart of Provence, in the Luberon region, in a tiny old medieval village near Apt.

Luberon is a massif in central Provence situated at 60 km north west of Aix-en-Provence and 60 km south east of Avignon.

The Luberon offers the visitors an incredible variety of scenic walks and a wide experience of Provence. It has a magnificent countryside with generous orchards, vineyards, lavender filled fields, beautiful farm houses, centuries old stone huts and much more!

The magical beauty of the Provence mountains and hilltop villages have been largely painted by Van Gogh who was fascinated by its unique light.

The Luberon region attracts many visitors from around the world for its ancestral wisdom, cultural traditions, and beautiful medieval villages. They particularly enjoy its slow-paced lifestyle, its tasty fresh products and the “Provencal douceur de vivre”.

Delicious local products

Students who study French in Provence get the opportunity to discover and taste numerous succulent local products. The diversity is huge from the traditional macaron, local honey, lavender essence, olives and olive oil, the fougasse bread and provencal cheeses (the goat cheeses are extraordinaire!), the rosé wines, the “herbes de Provence”, and naturally the delicious Provençal Cuisine.
