Accommodation & Meals

Our clients enjoy the comfort of 3-star hotels, wonderful service and meals. The hotels are well appointed with individually-furnished rooms including TV, bath, shower, telephone and mini-bar. Each hotel has a specific charm of its own, such as a healthy buffet breakfast enjoyed in a sun-flooded dining room with panoramic vistas of the mountain peaks.

A three-course dinner at your hotel is included every evening. Lunch is a delectable surprise from Monday to Friday during the French immersion course. It may be a quaint restaurant one day, a raclette or fondue in the mountains next or a picnic by the lake the following day. All the while, indulge in some famous local wines and converse with the locals.

The Académie can make arrangements for clients to upgrade to 4 or 5 star accommodation. Clients who are staying longer than 2 weeks may wish to rent an apartment.

Free time

What could be more relaxing and pleasurable than learning French in Switzerland! Crans-Montana is equally seductive and beautiful in both summer and winter and suitably tranquil to reflect and relax. Take a moment to unwind or read the newspaper in a comfortable sun lounger with a café latte al fresco or sample one of the Valais' signature wines. Whilst in winter what could be more enticing, than unwinding in perfect insouciance by a warm crackling fire in your hotel?

Enjoy the wonderful shopping with top fashion designers from France and Italy, exquisite jewellery and the famous Swiss watches. Other leisure options include skiing, ice skating, curling, sledging, horse riding, swimming, tennis, hiking, and summer cross-country skiing on the glacier.

The vibrant night-life of the twin villages also offers a variety of restaurants, piano bars, discos, casino and a cinema.
