    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They can learn or improve both French and English. There is a lot of walking and biking directly from the house. There are also lots of cultural activities (lectures, concerts, theatre, dance) .

    The village is a 20 minute walk away. We have two old bikes we can lend, which would enable access to a number of local towns and villages (up to 10 km away). There are also infrequent buses, and a good train service from a village 8 km away which goes to Carpentras and Avignon, where it links into both fast and normal train services.
