Our residential centres for school groups

Rest assured that your students are in the very best hands at our European residential language and adventure centres. You can choose a centre owned by Voyager School Travel and run by our own professional team, or pick one of our exclusive programmes which we deliver through our trusted and trained partners in France, Germany and Spain. It's no wonder that 87% of schools returned to our centres last year!

Carbon offset your trip to our French centres

As part of our ongoing work to reduce the carbon footprint of our trips, schools staying at one of our own residential centres can now help offset their carbon emissions. Our tree planting initiative gives groups the option to offset their trip by planting trees in the grounds of our Château.

Participating groups staying at the Château can even get involved by planting the trees themselves, or by planting trees on behalf of other participating school groups staying at our other centres. 

All participating schools will receive a certificate and photo to commemorate their effort. Schools can opt-in to our tree planting initiative by making a donation of 10€.

School groups staying at any of our own centres below can currently participate:
