Accommodation and meals

Accommodation in a lodging

An independent room in an authentic Cevennes farmhouse

Freshly renovated with natural, eco-friendly materials, Le Cambon lodge is located in Mialet, in the Cévennes, on 17 hectares of natural grounds. Situated on theoutskirts of the village, the lodge is relatively isolated, overlooking the Gardon river which borders the lower part of the property, and bordered by a forest on the upper part.

Within the lodge, 2 types of accommodation are available: room or dormitory. For each, sheets, blankets and towels are included in the price.

Coming with someone who is not taking a class

You can of course be accompanied by one or more people who do not wish to take French classes. In this case, these people will pay the price of accommodation and meals.

The lodge can also be booked on a half-board basis (breakfast + evening meal).

The ideal place to spend a quiet moment, read or why not… prepare the next day’s French class.

The Outsiders

The grounds around the lodge are vast and offer a wide range of spaces: a paddock housing 6 sheep and 2 llamas, a henhouse that supplies the lodge’s eggs, several gardens and vegetable patches, a greenhouse, a space under a pergola to enjoy the view over the valley and river, and plenty of places to put down a deckchair and enjoy the view and the moment.

And of course the different ponds, the forest and the river (the gardon) which is at 3 minutes walk.


All meals at the lodge are prepared by Florian, the lodge’s chef, who will delight you with his copious, tasty and varied dishes. Indeed, you will be able to taste traditional French dishes as well as Thai, Indian or Italian specialties.

For meals, he uses as many products as possible from the lodge’s vegetable garden, or those of his neighbor, who is an organic market gardener. In all cases, we favor local and organic cuisine.


For breakfast, you will find on the table, in self-service: tea, coffee, bread, butter, jam, apple juice, homemade yogurt.

Lunch and dinner

Florian can also prepare vegetarian or vegan dishes on request. In the same way, please inform us in advance if you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions so that we can adapt the menus.

You can have your meals in the different areas of the lodge: either in the silkworm nursery (where you can occasionally share a moment with hikers passing through on the Stevenson trail), or on one of the outdoor terraces.

Depending on the type of package you choose, we will have lunch together, a way to continue practicing French in an informal way.

Indeed, immersion stays offer the possibility to spend time together, outside of the French classes, and to exchange ideas.
