Rating: 4/5

Too far off the beaten path. I really liked the size of the town. I like much more sun than I experienced but the weather is not so controllable.


Most recent student reviews of language schools in Vichy


Welcoming and organised administration. Class sizes are not too big.
In the morning class, Margo is very dynamic and fun but I felt like there was a lot of speaking which we already get in the afternoon classes. But I was only there for a week so maybe it's different week to week. I had a very informative week and the content I learned in the mornings was new to me, e.g. social security in France, the French education system. I wish I could have stayed longer!

Information about Vichy

Why Vichy? Hugged by a bend in the Allier River, the fresh spring water of the region has defined Vichy as a regal spa town since the 17th century. Visitors would and still do flock to sip its reputable healing waters and plunge into thermal springs. Manicured gardens dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries and art-deco buildings such as the the art nouveau–style opera and Église St-Blaise lend highly to the the town’s feeling of time-worn glamour.
