Margaret 2016

I had a most enjoyable stay in Michel’s house for five days in June 2016.




The house is small, but clean and comfortable, and contains all the essentials for a stay. It is situated in the tiny hamlet of Borduchan – a charming and relaxing location. As I like being outdoors, I enjoyed several lovely walks from the house. It was good to explore some parts of the island’s coastal path, which is not too far away.

Michel is a very warm and friendly host – he prepared a lovely, nutritious meal each day and also organized various outings and visits for me. As I’m keen on
gardening, the nearby Jardin de la Boulaye was a real highlight. Michel’s own garden is also a peaceful haven and I would have enjoyed more time relaxing in it, had my holiday been blessed with better weather.
Lessons with Michel were relaxed and fun, but at the same time with a strong focus on my own learning objectives. I feel I learned a great deal, even in this short time. In particular, my oral comprehension skills improved far beyond my expectations.

In short, the course and activities were carefully tailored to my interests, ability and goals. It was also great fun, and I’d love to repeat the experience on Belle-Ile.
