The French House Party is listed Top Retreat in the National Geographic book, “The 100 Best Worldwide Vacations to Enrich Your Life” written by the prestigious American travel writer Pam Grout. Learn how to get the best from your digital video camcorder. Whether you want to learn the aesthetics of filming techniques, how to edit the material on your home computer, add special effects and musical soundtracks or understand animation, this groundbreaking course takes the mystery out of the technology. For adults and young people over the age of 12 (at least one adult per child), it is operated by a qualified British instructor who regularly runs introductory courses in UK
schools and for groups of adults.
The French House Party provides exclusive, villa-based arts and leisure breaks in medieval Carcassonne, South West France. We operate specifically with small, private groups of up to 16 people who want a European holiday with a different approach, who place a premium on superior quality accommodation, food and personal service. The house has a large swimming pool, tennis court, boules-pitch and a selection of bicycles should guests wish to take a ride along the banks of the nearby Canal du Midi.
