We are now at the end of our summer season and I would like to thank all of you who have joined us for such an enjoyable season. We appreciate very much the friendships we establish over the years and it is a joy to us to see so many of our students returning to pick up their St Saturnin life where they last left it.  It is hard to believe that Language In Provence has now been a part of life in St Saturnin for more than 18 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, Agnès, Isabel and Gio, are familiar to many of you and you have continued to enjoy their approach and stimulating classes. Next year we will be adding some painting classes to our programme and if you think you may be interested please get in touch.

Many of you ask to see as many photos as possible and I post on our Facebook page, Language in provence, and our Instagram page Language in provence. You can follow my personal Instagram on Susan Bento. I admit to not being the greatest photographer in the world and love to see all your postings so please upload them whenever you can.

And what changes in our little village? We now have a new crèche and health centre, a new pizzeria, hair salon and ‘aperitif’ shop and we have heard that a new relaxed dining bar/restaurant will be opening shortly. The restaurant at the Hotel St Hubert in the village centre has been taken over by a dynamic young couple, Lise and Eric,  and they are a fantastic addition to the village. I discovered recently a really fun video all about them – and it gives you a good idea of what St Saturnin – and our surrounding area including our wonderful market in Apt – is like : https://www.kitchenstories.com/en/stories/to-market-we-go-join-us-in-provence-france.

During the 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.

Hope you can join us next year – dates for 2020 to be published shortly.

A bientôt,
