Meals in French
Guests are asked to send in the results of the French test . As this test helps us assess your French knowledge and plan class levels in advance, we ask you not to guess the answers. On arrival an oral test is given to complete the assessment and guarantee that classes are as homogeneous as possible.
With a maximum of 6 people per class, the small size of classes allows your teacher to give individual attention and cater to the particular difficulties of each person. For those who need to learn as rapidly as possible, our Intensive Course offers an extra 6 hours of classes a week on an individual one-to-one basis.
Active speaking practice is sought at all levels of ability to give self-confidence in conversational skills.You are rapidly encouraged to try and speak in real-life situations. All our teachers are Native French instructors who can explain grammar and vocabulary to beginners in English when this is necessary. Intermediate and advanced students speak only in French.
Because of its importance, emphasis is given to pronunciation during lessons. You speak French all day long and then continue to speak French over a good meal and wine. The French-only rule at the dinner-table for French-studying guests accelerates understanding by total immersion in the language. What better way to learn to speak French than at a French table ?
Meals prepared by our in-house Chef are relaxed and convivial. Guests take all meals together in the dining room and lunch & dinner is taken with a teacher which is a pleasant way to encourage you to keep speaking French.
We take special care with meals as food has just as important a role to play as accommodation and classes in making your stay at the Villa a pleasant one. Breakfast is varied & nutritious with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, white bread & jam with a toaster available to make toast if you wish. Lunch is buffet style and includes a large choice of salads & vegetables as well as a hot dish. This leaves you the freedom to have lunch at table or take a tray & eat in the garden.
Dinner is a special time in the Villa when the chef prepares a traditional, country-style, sit-down French dinner that includes: an entrée, main dish, cheese & dessert with lots of red & white wine to wash it down with.
And for vegetarians and guests needing special diets, just let us know before you arrive so that the Chef can cater to your particular needs.
Coffee, tea, herb tea & fresh fruit are permanently available on our self-service sideboard table to give you a little more of that 'at home' feeling.
