Julie – Marlene review
Stayed in February 2019
I immensely enjoyed my stay – albeit short.
Julie was quick to discern my weaknesses and shifted the lessons and learning activities as required. Initially, she was correcting my mistakes as I spoke, then I began self-correcting, and by the end of the week – I was making much less mistakes. Very happy with the progress I made in just one week.
Julie was very pleasant, friendly, and accommodating but firm during lessons. She used a variety of activities and materials that I found really engaging. We played a number of games and had a lot of conversations/discussions on topics that interested me. There was a good selection of DVDs available for me to watch in the salon. We did 2 excursions : wine tasting at Chateauneuf-du-Papes and a visit to town centre of Uzès and its Wednesday market. We also spent one evening out – we went to this beautiful alternative cinema and had dinner in its restaurant afterwards. I enjoyed all of them greatly.
The apartment is huge and very comfortable. The salon and master bedroom are in somewhat neoclassical style whereas the 2 bathrooms and kitchen are modern. Great combination !
Avignon is such a charming and historical city. The apartment is bang in the centre of everything – it’s a few steps away from the high street. It has everything that you might need : shops, boutiques, cafés, restaurants, boulangeries, patisseries, grocery stores, pharmacy, cinemas, museums and so on. It’s also only a short walk away from Place d’Horloge and Palais des Papes. The neigbouring towns have a lot to offer, as well.
There was so much to see and do, so little time. I was sad to leave. Overall, the whole experience exceeded my expectations.
Many thanks and kind regards,
