Excellent teachers, enthusiastic and engaging. Loads of lovely places to enjoy lunch or a snack within a stone's throw. Lots to see in the area, chateaux, aplenty. Tours itself is beautiful.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Take advantage of their DVD collection. You can listen and put on French subtitles to improve comprehension.
Other comments
Their wifi is not good. The teachers even had difficulties with it. I frankly couldn't get my iPad to stay on, so did not rely on it at all.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
This school has a high enrollment of Japanese students, which is actually good for a short stay like a week or two, but maybe it would be good if Japanese people know it before making a decision. Again, for me meeting Japanese people there worked well.

I found that the other students needed to speak louder & their accents were hard to understand. All lovely students, just hard to hear.

Everything was really good. Everyone was very helpful. A little more explanation of the school layout & facilities on the first day would have been an improvement.

The families are carefully selected make sure the students have a great experience living with them. Teachers and staff are a constant support for the students in their day to day for small and big needs. They always are willing to recommend a book, get you directions to the cinema or helping you to book your train tickets. They are always there.
