Evelyne – Mary review
Stayed in 2018
I am relearning French after very many years. I got to a certain level and felt that I was no longer progressing. Then a friend told me about your programme and I decided to take the plunge
I was really quite nervous, but I needn’t have been.
Evelyne was so welcoming and immediately I felt at ease.
I had everything I could possibly think of in my lovely room in her lovely house.
I met her husband, Jean-Pierre, who was equally welcoming.
Evelyne and I spent the mornings at “lessons” : Evelyne found where I needed help and loads more
She is a brilliant teacher.
In the afternoons we had trips out, either with Evelyne or her friend, Martine. They both were able to explain all about the history, culture of the area.
Sometimes I even took the local bus myself some, under careful instructions from Evelyne.
Le Pays Basque is a spectacular area of green countryside, pretty villages and, of course, the wildness of the Atlantic Ocean. I loved it!
Evelyne is a wonderful cook and made a point of producing local dishes for every meal.
There were amusing and animated conversations each lunch and dinner between Evelyne, Jean-Pierre and myself.
The week was a great success and I really hope I can go again!
