Alpine French School offers a wide range of French + Activity Courses.

In the winter, enjoy skiing and snowboarding or other mountain activities such as snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, telemarking outside of your French lessons. We are based in the heart of a beautiful traditional Alpine ski resort just minutes walk from the ski lifts so you can be on the mountain within minutes of leaving the classroom!

In the summer, the town is just as lively and beautiful as in the winter. Ski-lifts transform to lifts used by mountain bikers, hikers and paragliders to whisk them up to the mountain-tops. We offer a range of French courses combined with summer activities:

Mountain Biking (Downhill or Cross Country, the trails here are world-class) Hiking (a huge range of hikes to choose from, we offer a 4-day discover package) Paragliding (courses available for beginners or improvers) Cycling (guided road-biking on the mountain climbs of the Tour de France!) Climbing (combine traditional climbing different routes with Via Ferrata and Canyoning) Watersports (try rafting, white-water swimming, canyoning, wind-surfing, kayaking....) Multi-Activity (if you just want to have a go and sample some of the adventure activities the area has to offer)
