France Langue’s primary aim is to open the French-language world and show the majestic beauty and vibes of French culture.


Our language centres are located in France’s most attractive cities: Paris, Nice, Bordeaux, Biarritz, Chamonix, Lyon and Martinique.
Biarritz is a French seaside resort that stands on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Our summer camp is located on the Pignada estate grounds, in the wooden bungalows of the residence. High School programmes take place in Bayonne – a historical and fortified town located 10 minutes away from Biarritz and Spain’s 30 minutes.


Biarritz is the Surf capital of France. The picturesque Ocean, great waves, azure beaches and the pleasant climate attract many surfers every year. You can learn French and practise your surfing skills on the Côte des Basques, Biarritz’s most beautiful beach in our school.
Biarritz is famous for its cultural life. Ongoing festivals, fashion shows, concerts and premieres are held there.
There are many famous places in Biarritz, such as the Museum of History, the Marine Museum, “The Planet Chocolate” Museum and the Orthodox Christian Church of Intercession.
