Parfum de France  is a small registered language school, located only 15 minutes from Saumur which is run by Sylvie Reeves, a French national, multilingual and an experienced ‘French As A Foreign Language’ and English teacher


“I have been a language learner myself for German, Spanish and English. My professional adult training experience has involved teaching individual and company students in several schools in England and in France.


After 18 years as Head of the Language Centre at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Saumur, I decided to set up my own business in my private home in 2006.

My expertise and enthusiasm will ensure that this is a positive learning experience for you. My approach is always completely focused on helping you to improve your capacities and scope in French”

The language centre is based in the family home in Fontevraud within walking distance of the Royal Abbey.
