The Principality of Monaco lies in South-Western Europe sandwiched between France and the Mediterranean Sea a few kilometres from Italy. It is the second smallest country in the world after the Vatican City and is famous for its beautiful, rugged landscape and sunny Mediterranean climate -- there is almost no precipitation there.
Monaco’s capital city, Monte Carlo, famous as a tax haven for the super-rich and for the annual Formula-One race that takes place there, is one of the most luxurious resort towns in the world.
Since the creation of our partner school, almost 230 000 students from all over the world have attended its courses in French Language and Civilization. Its cultural commitment and pedagogical experience attracts approximately 4 000 youths and 200 teachers each year.
Its idyllic setting, a beautiful wooded and floral park nestling on the hillside overlooking the Mediterranean, along with its antique style amphitheatre imagined and decorated by Jean Cocteau and now used for cultural events, create a unique atmosphere.
Set in a beautiful park overlooking the Mediterranean, the spectacular amphitheatre, three accommodation units, cafeteria, classrooms and reception area make the Centre a refreshing and stimulating place to live and work. The study areas include 8 classrooms, the amphitheatre and outdoor facilities. Catering is self-service, offering balanced meals cooked in the kitchens. The cafeteria stays open in the evenings: students can meet up in a friendly, festive environment.
