Accommodation/Barges in France
& French Classes
The French Collection is your entrée to Accommodation and Barging in France plus French Classes.
French Classes & Lessons
We provide French Classes in Sydney (Epping) and the Central Coast, NSW. In addition, we can facilitate French immersion classes in Paris. The classes are led by Gay Bird – an experienced teacher who is fluent in French and loves everything to do with France and the French. The many testimonials from her students demonstrate just how well her French lessons are received. These French Classes operate for absolute beginners, for those wishing to brush-up on their French and for those wishing to have basic French in place prior to travelling to France. As well, Gay teaches French for HSC students and she takes advanced French for those who are studying at university levels. For more information, please contact us.
Accommodation in France
We spend time every year in France, adding new accommodation options across France, and checking that our existing accommodation partners in France are maintaining their standards. Thus, our Accommodation in France partners have been personally vetted by us for quality and service. The accommodation caters for most budgets and includes B&B’s, châteaux and hotels. We particularly focus on accommodation in Provence, Dordogne, Burgundy, Loire, Pyrénées and the World War 1 region of Picardie/Somme. Many of our Accommodation in France partners offer complimentary bonuses for French Collection clients only.
Barging in France (& Europe)
With our partner who has over 20 years experience as a barge operator and tour organiser, we can assist in finding the right canal or river cruise to suit your interest, budget and style. Please see our Barging page.
