Learn to speak fluent French like a native...!!

ID: 2384
BERENX, FRANCE: Our home is in the south-west of France in Aquitaine. "Maison Broustiquet" is a typical Béarnaise house dates back to the 14th century. It is situated in the country just outside a small village. The house has a large garden with plenty of parking space. You will need a car because the nearest town is 5 kilometres away. The area has so much beautiful countryside to explore & activities to do. We live in a very calm area and if you are lucky you will see deer in the fields around us!

Type of Programme
One-to-One, personalised French tuition living full-board with the tutor's own family and in the tutor's own home, including local visits and excursions, meeting friends, neighbours and professional colleagues etc.

Excursions and Local Attractions

The nearest town to Bérenx is Salies-de-Béarn well-known for its Fitness centre, Spa Centre and beautiful half-timbered houses. There is a golf course, tennis courts and an outdoor swimming pool. You can go horse riding, cycling and fishing in the large rivers and lakes nearby.
The area is called "Béarn des Gaves" (Gave is the Béarn name for river) and is made up of four historic towns; Salies-de-Béarn, which I mentioned earlier, Sauveterre-de-Béarn a beautiful town on the Gave d’Oléron, Navarrenx, famous for its cigar manufacture, and Orthez which is just 10 kilometres away. Orthez is the ancient capital of Béarn and Protestantism. There is a large lake with a sandy beach which also offers leisure activities such as jet and water skiing.
Other interesting places to visit are: Pau, Biarritz, Bayonne, and Spain, just over the border.
