  • We offer French immersion programs, but also propose itineraries dedicated to French cooking, wine or culture. Take a look at the following Courses, presented in French or English :

Cooking & Gastronomy Course

  • One of our most popular tours at the Ecole des Trois Ponts, the Cooking and Gastronomy Tour is available in either English or French. Guests arrive on Sunday afternoon and begin their week of culinary delights with the first of several traditional French dinners. During the week-long program, guests tie on their aprons and help prepare the evening meal with our in-house chef. Easy to prepare recipes of French starters, main and dessert courses are presented during 4 afternoon cooking sessions with lots of hands-on participation. On Monday morning the group travels to a country market in the village of Marcigny, where local vendors sell a variety of local meats, cheeses, pastries, household items and clothing. A visit to the world-famous Emile Henry cookware boutique and a demonstration at an artisanal oil-pressing workshop, J. Leblanc Huilerie, rounds out the mornings activities. Additional excursions to a local vineyard, patisserie, an amazing cheese-aging tunnel and lunch at a Chateau gastronomic restaurant introduce guests to the best of local French cuisine.

Wine & Gastronomy Course

  • There's no better way to learn about French wine than to spend a week visiting some of the most celebrated wine regions in France and speaking directly to the winemakers about their techniques. Guests begin their week with a Sunday afternoon arrival at the Villa Beaulieu. On Monday morning, guests head out to the local Roannais vineyards for a tour and tasting of local wines. Day trips to the nearby Beaujolais and Burgundy regions feature tastings and lunches with established winemakers. Additional classes on the Bordeaux and Champagne regions are held at the Villa Beaulieu. Dinners throughout the week are specially paired with the wine region studied earlier the same day. The Wine and Gastronomy Tour is available in English or in French and is a wonderful introduction to the viticulture of France.

French & Gastronomy Course

  • Guests arrive on Sunday afternoon, and after settling in, enjoy the first of many traditional French dinners prepared by our in-house chef. On Monday morning guests start their first session of group language classes, which will total 15 hours by the end of the week. These are conducted by our professionally trained tutors, providing students with ample opportunity to improve their language skills in a small group setting (maximum of 7 per class). French conversation continues throughout the day and evening as guests speak in French at all mealtimes with the assistance and guidance of our teachers. Excursions to a local vineyard for a cellar tour and tasting, a demonstration at a nearby patisserie, strolls around medieval hillside villages and a gourmet lunch at a Chateau gastronomic restaurant provide a glimpse into the gastronomic heritage of the region.

French Food Lifestyle & Cooking Course

  • Nancy Riamon, a state-certified Dietician Nutritionist and Food Engineer, will teach you the secrets of eating healthy and staying slim - the French way! Discover the French way of life and the art of cooking “à la française”. This course demonstrates the impact that the French way of life has on health and how it has been preserved and maintained by the French people. You will also learn about local culture and how to embrace and integrate best practices into your own routine back home. And of course you will learn how to prepare well-balanced, healthy dishes for the evening meal.
  • It's an action-packed course comprising excursions in the mornings based on a daily theme. These are followed by detailed discussions after lunch, giving you ample time to understand the concepts of healthy French eating and lifestyle choices. In the afternoons, you'll also have cooking classes where you will prepare the evening meal - a fun environment where you will have plenty of hands-on experience and learn amazing tips from our in-house chef.
