Beautiful Nice on the French Riviera is the ideal setting for a French school trip and offers an excellent language school too!

Nice is a fantastic choice of location for groups who wish to have a more intensive French language learning experience, perhaps in preparation for their exams. Lessons at our partner language school are taught by fully-qualified native French teachers in closed groups, so the content is tailored to meet your specific requirements.

And accommodation is offered with carefully selected host families, all of whom have clean police records and many of whom live within walking distance of the school and beach (alternative accommodation is available, please contact us for further details).

Prefer a more relaxed French trip to Nice, without the lessons but still offering plenty of cultural activities and sightseeing opportunities? Then our French Culture Trip to Nice could be more suitable for you.
