Image of Study French in SwitzerlandWhat could be more relaxing and pleasurable than learning French in Switzerland! Crans-Montana is equally seductive and beautiful in both summer and winter and suitably tranquil to reflect and relax. Take a moment to unwind or read the newspaper in a comfortable sun lounger with a café latte al fresco or sample one of the Valais' signature wines. Whilst in winter what could be more enticing, than unwinding in perfect insouciance by a warm crackling fire in your hotel?

Enjoy the wonderful shopping with top fashion designers from France and Italy, exquisite jewellery and the famous Swiss watches. Other leisure options include skiing, ice skating, curling, sledging, horse riding, swimming, tennis, hiking, and summer cross-country skiing on the glacier.
