Marion – Austen review
Stayed in 2018
I get it. You read these reviews from randos online and think “is this going to be worth it?”, “can it be this good?” There are really just two questions you need to ask yourself before doing this immersion stay:
1. Do you like having fun?
2. Do you want to eat bomb food every day?
If you answered “no” to any of these, I have many follow up questions for you. If you’re a human and want to improve your French, then this is the place for you!
Marion and her Mom Nicole were the best! They made me meals with vegetables from the garden and we even had jams Nicole made from their fruit trees. Fresh tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, beets, and meat from local farmers. Ah-mazing!
Oh. I almost forgot. You also learn a ton of French here in a comfortable environment with games, comprehension lessons, and homework (if you want it).
Marion is super great to talk to about anything and she really cares about helping you learn what you want to learn. Some of my favorite moments from the week were just chatting in French with Marion and Nicole during meals.
I’m so happy I did this immersion stay. It will be one of those life experiences I’ll never forget.
P.S. Beaujolais is beautiful and stuff, but you probably already knew that.
P.P.S. Rent a car.
