French course in France for adults

When you are choosing between residential French courses,  deciding where to stay is also important.

We believe that your accommodation in Gourdon should be pleasant and comfortable and not merely an after-thought. To this end we offer several excellent options, each one specially selected to give you a restful home from home, somewhere to relax and recharge your batteries after a hard day of talking French!

Self catering

For those who prefer a self-catering option, we have a number of cottages available, sleeping beween one and four people.

All are situated in the historic quarter, just a few moment's walk from where the classes are held and a short hop from the boulevard and the restaurants of Gourdon.

A weekly stay typically costs between 350 and 640 euros per property.

You are welcome to bring partners or family who are on holiday with you.

Please visit our sister site Petit Gite to find more details and to check availability, or try Airbnb or HomeAway for other properties.

Hotels and B&Bs

Gourdon has a number of hotels and B&Bs in the town centre (near the classes) offering comfortable and affordable accommodation with good dining.


Prices for a seven-night stay in a single hotel room start at 385 euros.

B&B rates are around 300 euros for a single room for seven nights, with breakfast included.


You can contact the hotels directly (there is usually someone on hand who speaks English if needs be), but we can help if you get stuck. Click here to find out what's available.

Host families

We have organised a limited number of host families, typically older couples with no children at home, in central Gourdon, all within easy walking distance of the classes.


This is a great way to immerse yourself in the French language, and to make sure you're speaking French from morning till night.


Accommodation includes a single or double bedroom with its own private bathroom. Your hosts will provide you with breakfast and share their evening meal with you.


The cost is in the region of 260 euros for the week for one person and 420 euros for a couple. Please contact us for more details.

We feel the above options can really enhance your stay in Gourdon, but if you would prefer to make your own plans for accommodation, a good place to start is the Gourdon Tourist Office.
