Cote d'Azur Sessions

To our future students…

In our “Villa provençale”, with a direct access to the blue water of the Mediterranean sea, treat yourself with a full immersion into the French language…

Your vacation will be a perfectly adapted language training session where your needs and requests will be fulfilled.

Get a full taste of the French life as you are learning all the fine details of the French language. Take advantage of an exceptional location. Discover the “Provence” from St Tropez to Le Lavandou.

Learning or improving your French can be done with a very subtle and personal approach which will answer your needs (I know by experience that each one of us has specific needs and only a personal approach can bring you satisfaction).

François will be your main teacher and your guide in the area. He lived in the US for several years and his wife and four children are American. He has been teaching French and English as a private teacher for many years and he strongly believes in teaching to small groups (no more than four). He now shares his time between Paris and the Riviera where he organizes training sessions that will give you life long memories.

Denise and Leslie help him with the classes but also with the logistics. Denise has taught French at Alliance Française in Korea for many years.

François, Leslie and Denise are in charge of “Everything” during your stay. Their experience and full availability will allow you to fully enjoy the exceptional pleasures of the French Riviera at the same time you take an incredible step ahead to your knowledge and practice of French.

Our house

Located right above a beautiful Mediterranean cove, the house and the garden supply an incredible place to spend a studious vacation.

We have 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 shower room and 3 toilets. The living-room with its fireplace and the dining-room provide the perfect place for rest or study but the big terrace overlooking the sea is such an inspiring place. After classes, the garden with its palm trees, mimosas and eucalyptuses supply us with that gorgeous nature so typical of the Mediterranean coast.

François loves to show his students the villages around and the amazing Mediterranean Sea. The beach is actually right below the garden.

The French cuisine cooked by Denise or a friend from the area is simple but so typical and tasty.


You can fly from anywhere to Toulon or Nice in just a few hours with: Easyjet , British airlines, British airways, Ryanair…

You can also take the train to Toulon and François will be happy to pick you up.

The Teaching

With 4 hours of class every day (from Monday to Friday), we usually cover all that you need in order to enjoy a tremendous jump in your knowledge and practice of French. Of course, we speak French from breakfast till dawn but if you feel lost, any one of us can use a little English. Depending on your level and your expectations, we focus on conversation (pronunciation) or grammar but most the time both aspects are covered. The verbs are always at the center of the study because they represent the engine of a sentence.

The general level of the class must be homogenous. That’s why it is necessary to have a short conversation in French with François (You can also be a beginner and we will make sure the other students will have the same level).

Also, François loves to share all the interesting aspects of the French culture and more precisely the typical aspects of Provence.

To book your reservation:

Simply send us an Email or give us a call and let us know:

- When you would like to come. The pickup in Toulon or Nice is usually done on Sunday evening and François usually drops off his students on Saturday evening but we can arrange things differently according to your needs.

- How many people are coming (up to 4) - Your address and phone number. It will be necessary to have a short conversation in any case. It is important to get to know each other a little bit… Skype is very convenient too.

- Your level and your age as well as what you expect to learn or improve.

The fees include :

- The pickup on Sunday evening and dropping off in Toulon or Nice on Saturday evening.

- Your private bedroom (single or double bed) with access to the whole bottom floor of the house, to the terraces, the garden and the stairs to the sea if you want to take a swim…

- A continental breakfast, a typical French lunch and a typical French Mediterranean dinner every day.

- 4 hours of French class focused on what you need the most to be fluent in French. A lot of understanding, listening and repeating with confidence.

- 4 visits (usually St. Tropez, Bormes-les-Mimosas, Le Lavandou and a day trip to the island of Port-Cros)

1 pers = €1800 / 2 pers = €3200 / 3 pers = €4300 / 4 pers = €5700

We have to ask for a down payment of €200/person at the reservation. The balance can be paid at the beginning of the session. We can send you a link to our secure payment interface (actually supplied by PayPal) allowing you to use a credit card. You can also use a money transfer (all you need is our bank account reference).

The dates and details can be modified according to your request as long as all the students agree. It is necessary to discuss all that in advance.

That’s the reason why we need to be able to speak on the phone or on Skype…

Our phone number is +33 (0)9 81 79 43 58 or +33 (0)6 81 94 21 72

Our Skype ID is: mouchard1957

I will be happy to give you a call when you give me your phone number or your Skype ID. Make sure you let me know where you live so I don’t wake you up in the middle of the night…

À bientôt, j’espère !

François, Leslie et Denise

(We would be happy to give you a free 1 hour lesson on Skype if you are interested. Just let us know and I will call you back to arrange our meeting…)
