Bargain Specials France
French cultural visit for schools
  •  Great Value Course
  •  Off Peak Only
  •  Stay in a real 18th Century Château from £99 (including transport)
  •  Christmas Markets | Local Visits | WWI Battlefield Tours

We have recently developed a new discounted product. This will introduce our Châteaux to a wider selection of schools who previously would not be able to afford a trip to France, let alone stay in an 18th century Château.

To keep the cost as low as possible we are able to offer 2, 3 and 4 day stays at the Château between November and January. Prices start at £99 and are based on our French Experience product, with the option to incorporate a Christmas market or a guided tour of the WWI battlefields (especially popular in November).

However, to reduce the cost, we do not provide lunch and we only provide a limited evening entertainment programme: French Bingo, Quiz Night, Camp Fire, Film Night and Karaoke Night. As you have full use of the coach we are pleased to organise a range of cultural visits (some are very inexpensive or even free).

Options: Paris, Château de Versailles, Chocolate Factory, Parc Asterix, Agincourt, Albert Museum, Les Grottes de Naours, Amiens, Disneyland Paris, Lille, Peronne WWI Museum, Château de Pierrefonds, Champagne Tours, Christmas Markets
