French language School located in Provence, FranceCome & Share a French Experience  

Provence en Famille is a French homestay program which provides for total immersion in the French language within my apartment in Aix-en-Provence, in the heart of our beautiful Provence. I offer three different homestay programs:

»French Language Homestay Program 

»French Culture Homestay Program

»French Cooking Homestay Program

French Language Homestay Program: I will be your personal French tutor as you study French and live "à la française" within our family, in a comfortable apartment with a nurturing environment. I will inspire, encourage and guide you to communicate with confidence and ensure that your learning experience is enjoyable, satisfying and rewarding. In nice weather, our tutoring sessions could take place on the terrace of a nearby cafe.

French immersion homestay terrace French Culture Homestay Progarm: I will be your personal guide, giving you an insider's view of Provence. These tours can be conducted in French or English. After a day of cultural experiences, you will return to your homestay base where you can relax and enjoy a delicious Provençal meal en famille.

French Cooking Homestay Program: One of my favorite pastimes is cooking. In this program you will learn how to prepare some of my favorite Provençal recipes. We will go to the open-air markets to buy our ingredients then we will prepare the meals together. Of course we will enjoy the fruits of our labor as we eat together en famille. This program can be conducted in French or English.

A la Carte: If you wish, it is possible to organize a mixed program "à la carte" with some elements of each of the three above programs in a combination of your choosing.

I do hope you will come and join our family here in our charming town of Aix-en-Provence where a warm welcome awaits you.

Dear friends,

The word "Provence" conjours up endless blue skies, the heat of summer, the sound of cicadas, and long balmy evenings on a terrace, sipping a glass of vin rosé.

But did you realise that the sky is just as blue in winter, the temperature is milder (except when the Mistral blows !), and terraces of the cafés along the cours Mirabeau are just as welcoming ? The boutiques are quieter and the staff have more time for customers.

You will want to visit two of our charming museums. At the Center of Art at the Hôtel de Caumont you will be able to admire “BOTERO, DIALOGUE WITH PICASSO” and at the Musée Granet you will be able to view “CEZANNE AT HOME”.

Come and join us for some shopping in the winter markets in Provence, sample our Christmas and New Year specialities, and discover the secrets of the Alpilles and the Luberon now that the tourists have disappeared.

We would be delighted to welcome you here for your studies of the French language and share with you our « Provence en hiver ». We hope to have the pleasure of your company !

Elisabeth et Roland
