Our School Building

The XVIth century La Thaumassière château in Sancerre is home to Coeur de France Ecole de Langues. Classrooms occupy the ground floor and deluxe apartments exclusively for student rental are located on the upper floors. Click on the photo for a short history of this historic building.

Coeur de France French school is located in the vineyards of Sancerre, in the Loire Valley’s wine country, only 2 hours south of Paris. The winding medieval streets and charming homes of our hilltop town have a fairy tale quality — and in the heart of it all sits the 16th century La Thaumassière château, home of Coeur de France Ecole de Langues.

Easily accessible by car or train, we are geographically in the center of France surrounded by vineyards, cathedrals and chateaux.

Have fun!

Learn French in the Loire Valley wine country!
