Corporate Member of the month

If ever there was a time for the saying "hope for the best but plan for the worst" this is it. We are all living with uncertainty and school travel to France is definitely no exception.

With this in mind we are taking this opportunity to let you know that we are hoping to be welcoming school groups from the UK back to us as soon as possible. We miss the fun and sheer energy that children bring to our quiet corner of Burgundy. We hope our website provides all you need to know about our philosophy and approach to what we do.

At the same time, we are planning that if travel remains difficult into the new academic year we will continue to grow the online resources we have been producing over the last 18 months. These are specifically designed to support schools and include virtual trips complete with activities backed up by a lesson plan and plenty of native French language speaking. These are freely available for all schools and not just our clients.

Of course, our business has been massively impacted by Covid but it does not escape us that the impact on young people is significantly more profound. Please do visit our blog post on this subject which is particularly personal to us.

We look forward with great hope to welcoming children back to Burgundy whenever that might be and if we can help you plan for a trip at any time in the future please do get in touch.
