JULY 2016

We are approaching the end of our summer courses in a year that has proved a difficult one for France. I would like to thank all of you who continue to support us and make our work so enjoyable. It is hard to believe that Language In Provence has now been a part of life in St Saturnin for more than 15 years.

Francis, our French host, continues to provide a warm and truly gastronomic welcome for his house guests. This year our students have enjoyed to the full the two beautifully renovated bedrooms, one with spectacular views, that he has been working on in his fascinating 18th century village house. The other bedrooms have been redecorated and refurbished and are as full of charm as ever. There are photos of Francis’s accommodation on our website accommodation page.

Our teaching team, Salima, Gina, Gio and this season Agnes, are familiar to many of you and you have continued to enjoy their approach and stimulating classes.

I understand from a number of Australian students that some of you are only picking up old dates and posts on this blog. I have taken this up with our website manager and we are investigating why this problem exists in Australia.

Many of you ask to see as many photos as possible and I have taken to posting more on our Facebook page, Language in provence, and our Instagram page Language in provence (newly created). You can follow my personal Instagram on Susan Bento.

And what changes in our little village? For the moment very little apart from a new crèche and health centre which are under construction, and we have heard that a new relaxed dining bar/restaurant will be opening shortly. During this summer season we have many concerts and theatre events to enjoy in the village, especially on Wednesday evenings when theatre performances take place near the old village reservoir.

Everyone comments on how much they enjoy the truly local feel of the village and I think that is what makes St Saturnin so special.

A bientôt,
