The leading school for learning French in France

The Centre International d’Antibes is an independent French language school located in the wonderful South of France, in the town of Antibes. It offers high-quality French language immersion courses at affordable prices all year round. 

The school’s history began in 1985, with three classrooms hired in a secondary school in Antibes. We now manage two French schools for adults and four summer language camps for children in France. 

Exceptional location

It’s a chance to learn French in one of the country’s most stunning regions: the French Riviera! Our French school in Antibes is the perfect destination for your language learning trip to France. 

Located between Nice and Cannes, just a few minutes’ walk from the beaches, you can dive into the local Mediterranean culture and make some new friends while enjoying a memorable holiday in the South of France.
