What our guests say


Lynn, New Plymouth

I organised a private French weekend in Matamata for a group of friends and we had the most fabulous time. Our expectations were exceeded, and everything was top notch. I cannot thank Patsy and Catherine enough for the experience and highly recommend them. We had lots of laughs, incredible food, amazing accommodation and enjoyed conversing in our rather rusty French - a weekend that will be hard to top.

Jenny, Auckland

We stayed at the French Language Weekend in Kaipara and it was fantastic, a fun mix of French games, chatting and fabulous food in an outstanding location! Well organized but flexible and catering to all levels of ability, a wonderful retreat for us! 

Kerryn, Auckland

This was the funniest weekend! Food, accommodation, aperitifs, games, music, dancing, service and especially the company of the French speaking ladies were all exceptional It was like having two French speaking butlerinas for 2 days - waiting on hand and foot and nothing too much trouble. And no judgement of the clearly terrible French from our group either!!! Highly recommended thanks for organising
