French Experience
French culture for school groups
  •  Fantastic range of local visits
  •  Coach stays with the school for duration of the course
  •  Opportunity to experience the real France
  •  Full evening entertainment programme
  •  Opportunity to mix and match with other products

The objective of our French Experience course is to provide students with the opportunity of experiencing French culture from a beautiful 18th Century Château.

The coach remains with your group for the duration of your stay to maximise your enjoyment whilst in France. We offer a wealth of interesting places to visit: Paris, a Chocolate Factory, a French Market, a variety of historical sites or even a theme park. The possibilities are endless. Included in the package is a range of evening entertainment which can include: Château Olympics, quiz night, camp fire, local visit, scavenger hunt, wide games, and team sports.

For schools who want to expand on their French Experience course, various modules can be added to the programme for a small extra cost from our other products, i.e. outdoor pursuit sessions, French Language modules or a guided tour of the WWI Battlefields.

The essence of the course offered is to design the programme around the individual requirements of each school.

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
