Bonjour tout le monde et bienvenue

AN INEXPENSIVE AND ENJOYABLE WAY TO GET STARTED - OR TO BRUSH UP ON YOUR CONVERSATIONAL SKILLS

A group holiday Learning French in France is a great way to get started and to improve your vocabulary.

And a Group Holiday is probably much more reasonably priced than you think. 

SUMMARY AND OUTLINE
This is a fully inclusive 7 day group holiday

Airport pick up and drop off.
We collect you at Bordeaux or Toulouse airports - and we drop you off at the same airport at the end of your holiday.

We take you on all kinds of excursions and sight seeing trips. We shop the markets, explore medieval villages, visit historic cathedrals and chapels, taste the local wine and Armagnac. Walk on a stage of the Pilgrim's Route. (The road to Compostela goes right past the front door of La Petite Galerie.) All great opportunities to pick up more French vocabulary and to practice your French. At the end of the day, we take you back to La Petite Galerie.

PRICES
Question: What does an ALL IN group holiday with French lessons like this cost?

€8400 in total.

(This is also the maximum number 
of guests per trip).
