About BlaBla Travel – Cours de français à la carte

How to open your mind to a foreign language without having to sit in a classroom (to do so) ?

BlaBla Travel is a new concept for learning French in one of France’s most beautiful regions, the Alps, between Savoie and Isère, where you will learn to discover not just our region but also our food in a local and friendly atmosphere.

Between Savoie and Isère counties, between lakes and mountains, out in the countryside but not too far from town, BlaBla travel leaves you to choose the environment in which to learn or to improve your French, or to deepen your knowledge of it.

With a choice of themes, you will be in charge of your stay. We have planned your stay for those who want to learn a language while at the same time discovering 2 distinct mountain regions – the Chartreuse mountains and the area around Aiguebelette Lake.

Karine and Elodie will introduce you to a region and a language and entertain you (in French). Each week, we will take you to discover our beautiful natural environment and our historical and cultural heritage, local crafts and outstanding regional products.

Unlike other language courses, we offer a different theme each week (sport, gastronomy, wellness and relaxation, handicraft, vine & wine), accommodation adapted to each theme, with the courses taught at your accomodation, unusual activities for all and the possibility to meet local people.

Our stays are for employees, individuals, students, friends, couples or families. All levels.
French Courses take place throughout the year, with 20 hours per week from Monday morning to Friday afternoon.
On request, BlaBla Travel can offer individual or small group lessons :

  • Private individual tuition,

  • Courses for people living in France,

  • Stays for established groups (4 minimum),

  • Training course : DELF/DALF

  • Weekend « French Discovery Course ».

Our aim is to give you a week or weekend of total immersion with a variety of local people and activities, to enable you to discover our region, its crafts and specialities, and our way of life.


BlaBla Travel offers language courses of one week or more, and linguistic weekends (Friday to Monday) - A1 to C1 :
- 20 hours of classes spread over the week (day, 1/2 day, no classes on Thursday to allow you to visit the region) - General French course mainly based on oral and vocabulary on the theme of the week
