Destination

Monaco

Located on the bright and sunny southeast coast of France just a stone's throw from Italy, the Principality of Monaco - the world's second-smallest country after the Vatican - is a tax haven and beach hotspot favoured by celebrities and royalty alike. Ruled by the Grimaldi family since the 13th century, Monaco is a top luxury destination with palaces, yachts and casinos fit for a prince - and it's also home to the Formula 1 Grand Prix, held every year in Monte Carlo. The year-round sunshine and mild weather make for an ideal summer destination to make the most of its sea, sand and sun.

Summer Camp

Our partner school is located just a kilometre away from the borders of Monaco, 15 kilometres from Nice and 20 kilometres from the Italian border. Located around 100 metres above sea level, Monaco is full of sunshine and sea breeze with spectacular views over the Mediterranean.

Our French Language and Culture partner school has taught over 240 000 students since it was founded, with around 4000 students every year coming to learn French and immerse themselves in French culture.

School facilities include:

  • 8 classrooms
  • Amphitheatre
  • Outdoor facilities for summer
  • On-site cafeteria: the cafeteria is self-service with healthy, balanced meals on offer, prepared on-site. Bottled water is included. Students should bring spending money if they wish to purchase other drinks. The cafeteria is open in the evening, making it a good place for students to meet up and get to know each other.
