CREA-Langues welcomes you in a delightful peaceful setting : a renovated Cistercian monastery tucked away among olive groves and fields of lavender. Its cloister, internal courtyards, its domain of 16 acres are places where you will want to study and relax.

We are at 6 km from Moustiers, which is classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France. Cobbled passage-ways, shady squares, little bridges and waterfalls make this village particularly picturesque, clinging against the rocks. The school is in the heart of the ‘Parc Naturel du Verdon’, at 15 km from the «Gorges du Verdon», the deepest canyon of Europe. The lake of Sainte-Croix, just 10 kms away, is ideal for water sports. Riez-la-Romaine at 9 kms, has a thriving twice-weekly market. Numerous festivals take place in the neighbouring villages and towns.

The international airport Marseille-Marignane is at 1h30’ from the school, Aix-TGV station at 1h15’.

"My experience at CREA-Langues has been outstanding, not only from the language point of view, but for the opportunity to engage with staff and other students informally. The organisation and attending to detail is simply superb. I have every intention to return. "
