Learning French in Brittany, France | Residential courses
in Brittany (France)
Within the framework of our residential French immersion courses in the area of Saint-Malo in Brittany / France, we arrange accommodation locally.
As the lessons are held directly at your place of residence, we work in partnership with guest house and holiday let owners. The accommodation is chosen for its suitability to course requirements, as well as for the quality of their services and welcome.
We can offer different types of accommodation: guest rooms, in town or in the countryside, with breakfast included or half-board, or seasonal rentals. You choose the solution which suits you and we make the reservation. You can visit some of our associates’ websites by clicking on the links below:

Saint-Malo and the surrounding areas
Dinard used to be a fishing port before being adopted by the English as a seaside resort in the 19th Century thanks to its mild, almost Mediterranean, climate. Admire its beautiful beaches and over 400 villas, now classified as historic monuments. Dinard is just across the river Rance estuary to Saint-Malo. You can get there either by “bateau-bus” or by crossing over the dam, actually a tidal power station unique of its kind, which you can visit.
Dinan is a medieval town about half an hour’s drive upriver. Its narrow cobbled streets lined with half-timbered houses and its admirably restored “shoppes” make it a must-see, especially on a Thursday morning for its market, one of the most popular in our region.
Cancale is a charming little port from where sailors would leave for the fishing grounds off Newfoundland. It is nowadays the most important site for the cultivation of mussels and oysters, and in fact, the best place to appreciate all kinds of shellfish in its many seaside restaurants.
Cape Fréhel is a classified "site of ecological importance", particularly as a nesting site for migratory sea-birds, including gannets and petrels. Close by is the La Latte Fortress (14th Century) which may be visited in the summer season.
Rennes, Capital of Brittany, is less than an hour away from Saint-Malo by train. This dynamic city lives up to its reputation as a "City of historic and artistic importance". Don't miss its "Champs Libres" Cultural Centre depicting the history of Brittany from Neolithic standing stones to 19th Century costumes, its medieval quarter, neo-classic town houses, the theatre (Theatre National de Bretagne), cinemas, and cosmopolitan restaurants...
