    Imagine staying for 9 days at the foot of the alpine Jura-Mountains in the heart of the Burgundy region of France, right on the cusp of where the Rhônes-Alpes meets the Franche-Comté. And imagine staying in a luxury 17th century château with private park-lands, tall, elegant rooms and your own in-house chef. With the choice of onsite French lessons in the mornings if you want help with the more technical side of the French language and the chance to explore medieval villages perched high up in the hills and the delights of local cafés, restaurants and artisans boutiques.




    The 9 day Program involves complete immersion in French at the château, with gourmet cooking lessons in French, evening diners with local French speakers and escorted trips to off the beaten track delights such as wine and cheese pairing in an old tunnel used for maturing cheese and trips to the local markets and artisans. Enjoy Michelin star meals, breathe in the scent of the lavender fields and discover the wineries and cheese farms of this rich region as the French language reveals itself to you.



    Stay a while longer for an experience of a lifetime

    You finish your Immersion Vacation with a magical 7 Nights stay at a quaint Boutique hotel in Le Marais, Paris. Spend an evening at the Paris Opéra Garnier with a VIP Ticket, climb the streets of Montmartre, soak up the knowledge and passion of experienced private guides and sip coffee late into the evening on the banks of the River Seine. But queue and wait nowhere as Catherine arranges 5 star treatment and private tours of the city’s hidden gems.
