France - where to stay with kids and language immersion

Jump to last reply

I'm exploring renting a house for about a month next summer in France to give my kids some French language immersion while they're still young (4 and 7 when we travel).

Any suggestions of which French areas or towns might fit our needs?

*I'd prefer if everything we need is walkable or easily available via public transit. We'll probably rent a car for a week and travel elsewhere in the country, but I want to spend the first week in one place.
*Should be reachable by train from Paris so that we can get there initially
*I honestly don't know if dialect will be a challenge in certain areas (I've traveled in the southwestern part of the country and it wasn't a problem for me) but it would be helpful to know ahead of time. My older DD is in her second year of French at school so any accent will be a difference. Just trying to minimize it.
*Events and activities in town would be ideal. We can make our own fun, and I'm sure every town has parks and things to do. But if there are extra small town events, we would really take advantage of them.
