Language Programmes in France for Children and Parents on the French Riviera

Language programs France: Antibes

25 kilometres of one of the most beautiful coastlines on the French Riviera make Antibes and the seaside resort Juan-les-Pins a great destination for a summer holiday for the whole family. With its Mediterranean climate - lots of sunny days and high temperatures all through the summer - this is the perfect spot for your French language programmes! Antibes itself has an attractive historic city centre with a maze of small streets. It is also famous for having one of the biggest marinas in Europe, where you can see some of the world’s most expensive luxury yachts. Antibes is one of the oldest cities in the Côte d’Azur, founded by the Greeks in 340 BC. Its old name “Antipolis” means “city across from Nice”. Later the city belonged to the Roman Empire and there are still some Roman artefacts such as aqueducts and amphora to be seen in Antibes.
Antibes offers lots of possibilities to create a perfect holiday – for parents as well as for children!
Your child or your children will participate in our junior summer course with lessons in the morning and activities in the afternoon. You attend a French language course for adults in the morning and you can either spend the rest of the day as a family or you can take the opportunity to have some time without your children. As the programme is very flexible and can be designed to your wishes, you can make up your mind on a daily basis.
