Learning French in the South of France is a superb challenge because you will be placed in total French language immersion within a new environment and a completely new culture. Do not miss the chance to go around the region of Montpellier during French immersion programs to see all the wonders that are hidden there. Our French language school has many different cultural excursions to offer you and some are only just next door to Montpellier as for example the “Château de Flaugergues”.
We will take the tram to the “Château de Flaugergues”, a magical place just next door to Montpellier. Brigitte and Henri de Colbert will be only too happy to welcome you to the castle and share their family history with you, their passion for everything that is beautiful and tasty, from vineyards to fine arts. They have received several national awards for the restoration work they have had done and the excellent way they welcome visitors. They have also been awarded the label “JARDIN REMARQUABLE” (remarkable garden) by the Minister of Culture.

As soon as you arrive, Madeleine will welcome you in French, of course, and will take you off to explore the Château, where Henri, Brigitte de Colbert and their children still live. During the guided tour of the Château you will discover the magnificent furniture of the 18th Century, its tapestries from Brussels, sensational paintings, precious porcelain, libraries, and very old archives that are well worth having a look at!
