Chateau de la Baudonniere

So something new, we have for many years been to PGL centres; offering a taster to a huge range of outward bound activities, getting to the children to work together & have a great time. We have also run many trips to Carentec in Brittany; an extended cultural experience & some French language development. But this year I thought we might do something different & combine the best parts of these 2 trips + develop the French language component even more.

The Château is all about French language immersion. Everything that is done at the Chateau involves using practical spoken French to convey meaning, and the children are encouraged to speak French to get what they want. A friendly, French environment supports this philosophy.
