Hello! We are an English family who live near the medieval town of Josselin in beautiful Brittany. We have been living in France for three years and before that we lived in the Cotswolds, England. Our family are Tina, Warwick and our daughter Isobella (age 13). We are learning French, so understand how difficult it can be to learn a new language, which is why we want to make your immersion experience fun, relaxing and educational.
Our background is in healthcare, with Tina working as a District Nurse and Warwick as a Healthcare Scientist. We have a criminal background check and liability insurance, and because of Tina's experience in the medical industry, she is trained in first aid.
Tina now works part-time as an English teacher after completing her TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate and we offer English immersion and day courses.
We provide all reading and writing materials, all meals and accommodation. You will have your own double room with a bathroom shared by the students. We accept 2 students (or two couples as both rooms are doubles).
Your stay includes a cooking class, 2 hours of English per day, afternoon activities (free or paid) in a beautiful setting. We live in a converted water mill with landscaped gardens (1 1/2 hectares) including a swimming pool (seasonal), badminton, woodland, hammocks, streams and a small park.
Free activities include tennis, cycling, cooking, English lessons, films, visits to Josselin, Rochefort-en-terre, local markets, Vannes/Rennes.
Paid activities offered include horse riding, kayaking, tree climbing, museum visits.
We can accommodate up to four people in two double bedrooms. We therefore accept either families, groups, couples or single people, adults or children.
We give a discount for two or more members of the same group or family.
We will only speak to you in English during your stay, except in cases of emergency. We will be available to you during your entire stay.
