Accommodation & facilities

Successfully serving school groups for over 20 years

The farmhouse, barn and outbuildings of La Grand'Ferme were converted into a French language residential centre for British school groups in 1999. Since then, the comfortable centre has become a firm favourite of French teachers from the UK. With its own playing fields, hammocks, beach volleyball court, heated pool and modern accommodation, La Grand'Ferme provides the perfect base for language groups wanting to explore the historic area surrounding UNESCO World Heritage Site Mont Saint-Michel.
