    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We do not live on site but will be present during parts of the day. Nearby there are many pretty medieval villages for buying your breakfast croissants and exchanging your best French with the locals!! Stay in a typical french farmhouse and experience the Provençal way of life and all its quirks! Since moving here 10 years ago we have learnt a lot of local knowledge about life in France, living in the countryside in Provence and about our natural surroundings, which we would be happy to share with you.
    Perhaps you have also learnt useful skills along the way that you would like to share with us!
    We have two young children learning guitar and tennis who would be happy to improve these skills if the opportunity arose!
