La Grand Ferme Residential School Trips


La Grand’ Ferme is our gîte-style school language centre situated in the quiet village of Le Fougeray, between Granville and Avranches and just 2km from the coast. The main house and barn were built around 1780 out of stone from an abbey destroyed during the Revolution.

With a unique set of buildings, 3 acres of grounds and a view of Le Mont St Michel, the property is full of atmosphere and offers modern, comfortable accommodation, in a car-free environment which is ideally suited for school groups.


Accommodation and facilities

The accommodation is made up of two self-contained buildings each with its own playing field, dining room and teachers’ area. The main house accommodates school groups up to 61 students and 10 teachers, and the gîte can accommodate school groups up to 61 children and 3 teachers.

During their free time, students can enjoy the centre’s many facilities including a heated outdoor pool, petanque pitch, beach volleyball court, all-weather sports pitch, petting animals, games room for evening entertainment, large conservatory and extensive grounds.

Centre staff

There is always a member of staff on night duty, so schools have the benefit of 24-hour care and supervision and we operate our own kitchen so can provide food of the highest quality as well as all specialist diets. La Grand’ Ferme has its own dedicated team of French-native animateurs whose job is to look after the needs of your group during the trip.
