Spend 7 Days in Rural Provence and Discover the Local Secrets
Devy, a native Frenchwoman and French Teacher (bien sûr!) living in Australia, invites women like *you*, twice a year, to Fayence, her hometown in Provence.
Stay in beautiful Fayence, in the Var/Provence region, in secluded apartment rooms – or a private hôtel room – with sublime restaurant, swimming pool, and spa.
Meet Devy’s family, connect with the locals, and eat at their favourite restaurants. Think long meals - a leisurely pace ... Provence-time.
Spend a week exploring stunning villages and the breaktaking scenery of Provence
Buy food at the local markets, savour the region’s specialty wines, and cook with a local chef. Get your hands in the clay with a ceramics workshop. Even join in a game of pétanque!
Discover Cannes (someone say ‘shopping?), sail on the Mediterranean, and explore Île Sainte-Marguerite.
Indulge in a visit to Grasse, the world’s perfume capital, and take home the best souvenir of all – the fragrance of France.
All the while immersing yourself - with your own personal language coach – right there, in beloved France. Learn useful skills, on a moment-by-moment basis. In real time.
Whether you fly directly to Nice International, take the TGV to Gare de Nice-Ville, or drop off the rental at your hotel, Devy will collect you.
Experience France - and learn to speak French - at *your* pace.
What the Ladies Say...
‘As a single traveller, it was perfect for women or anyone who’s travelling alone because you’re in a group, so you don’t feel like you’re on your own. Love speaking French, want to do it better, and have fun while you’re doing it? It was perfect.’ – Cathy.
‘I liked every bit of it. Just the culture around the Provence, all these villages. The atmosphere between all of us. All the visits we did, the pottery, the food, the wine. Just marvellous, a pleasure for the eyes’. – Karine.
‘Ideal for anyone interested in the French language, regardless of how well you speak. You’ve got lots of support around you from people who speak English. Learn French in a fun way combining learning and a holiday’. – Karen.

Dear friends, I want you to know that I am partnering with Devy and will receive a small commission for encouraging you to go to France on this Retreat. I also want you to know that I will only ever partner with people who I know, trust, and respect.
Devy is my first associate. As well as a talented, capable, and lovely friend ... And she’s French! The real deal.
This will be an incredible trip, I’m certain. Devy has been developing this tour for 6 years, and it is perfect. Enjoy a relaxed, bespoke experience; a small group feel. Explore your French with her- even as a beginner - in a safe, authentic space. Devy is a true Frenchwoman, and a successful French teacher in Australia.
Travel back to her hometown in May 2018, join her mother, and experience an intimate side of France with your own personal language coach, en situ.

While you’re there, take the slow road. Experience the Riviera to the east, before or after Devy’s Retreat. Visit the Côte d’Azur. So much to see in this part of the world. Visit Villefranche sûr Mer, the Villas Kérylos and Rothschild. Imagine solitude in medieval Èze in the early morning, having tea in the Hôtel de Paris in Monaco, or swimming at beautiful Beaulieu sûr Mer.
