Nearly all of the teachers who experience La Grand Ferme rate it as the very best place that they have ever taken a school group. We have listed a selection of bite sized testimonials for you to peruse.

The girls have raved about the food, the staff and the activities, and all the parents are delighted.Your knowledge of the area is impressive, so on our various trips the stories, worksheets and general patter is always interesting and pitched at just the right level.The excellent staff/pupil ratio meant the girls were safe and well-occupied throughout the day.

Sarum Hall School

The programme of activities was varied to suit our particular needs – we went for a cross-curricular approach giving us a good range of linguistic and physical activities. The food was wonderful – we ate calmars, vol au vents au poisson, dinde à la crème and lovely picnics.

This was my first trip and, although I had been informed how well run it was, I had not expected it to be quite as fab as it was – what an excellent trip it was – thank you ! The boys were looked after well and their French has definitely benefitted from the experience.

Moulsford Prep

Again an enjoyable time was had by all and the expedition undoubtedly ran even more smoothly then last time. Please pass on the thanks of the army students and myself to all your staff for an enjoyable stay in France.

Army Foundation College, Harrogate

A particular thank you to your animateurs whose patience and unfailing cheerfulness with the children coaxed remarkable results even from the most reluctant of linguists. The food as ever was of top standard.

Mount House School

I just wanted to thank you personally for a fantastic week. I can honestly say that it was the best school trip I have been on. From the organisation of the booking in the UK to the warm welcome and family atmosphere we experienced at the centre, everything was perfect. One of the strong points was the team of animateurs. Without exception, they were enthusiastic, friendly and accomplished in making all the activities fun for the children, all of whom have come home with fantastic memories and a renewed enthusiasm for speaking French.

It was wonderful having the headache of arranging a trip taken away. The children returned full of enthusiasm and desperate to go back. The whole week was tailored to our requirements.

Arnold Lodge School

What makes Normandie à la Carte special  is the way they plan the programme with the trip organiser, from the time taken arranging the right blend of activities, and making parents feel confident about arrangements, to the trouble the team of language specialists takes to ensure the experience is French, alive and relevant.

Ashville College

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip in July, thank you so much for all you do to make it 'just perfect' for St Martins. A number of parents commented on how much their sons enjoyed the trip and mentioned how confident their sons were speaking french when on holiday in France. We certainly notice it in class.

St Martin 's

It was a great week, thank you for all the super organisation, for the care taken of us by everyone in France, and for the tireless energy of the team.

Dunhurst, Bedales

Just wanted to say a big thank you for a wonderful visit - all the girls had a fabulous time as always.

The Carrdus School

I have been running trips for over 25 years and during that time I have been on tours with NST, PGL, Travelbound and Rayburn and I have to say that the recent trips I've had to Normandie a la Carte and Chateau de la Baudonniere have been by far the best I have ever run
