Activities available

Two Locations
You can visit either the Ardèche or the Mediterranean first, where you’ll spend around three-and-a-half days at each location, with a three hour coach journey between resorts. Most groups make the most of the transfer day as an excursion opportunity.

Ardèche River Adventure
A two to three day, 19 mile, canoe descent through the spectacular Ardèche Gorge; return to base at the end of each day or experience the optional overnight bivouac.

Mediterranean Watersports
In a full watersports programme, your students will learn to sail a range of craft including catamarans, dinghies and sit-on kayaks.

Fun-Packed Evenings
The day’s activities may be over, but the fun doesn’t stop there; our centre teams lead evening entertainment sessions to keep everyone busy - including a nightly disco.

Food

Our centres in southern France offer a fantastic range of delicious food choices for you and your group to enjoy. We source fresh, regional produce whenever we can and you’ll always find a cultural flavour to our menus. Our aim is to ensure your group leaves feeling full and happy. If a member of your group has a specific dietary requirement or is particularly choosy about what they eat, we will always prepare something suitable. And if they’d like some more to eat, we can offer alternatives and extra food.

A continental feel
We like to provide a balance by providing food that is familiar but also by giving you an opportunity to try food that has a distinctly French flavour too!

Enjoy your food
We strive to provide quality meals wherever you are eating them – as well as a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. So, whether you are in the surroundings of our clean and pleasant dining rooms or on the banks of a river, enjoy your food with PGL!
