For additional learning opportunities, the grounds at Château du Tertre are filled with free adventure activities that are a great, active way to promote teamwork, communication and encourage personal development for your students.

Food

Our centres in northern 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.

Encouraging healthy eating
You’ll always find a good selection of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables on offer every day. A range of salads is available at lunch and dinner time and fresh fruit is available at every meal.

A Continental feel
We like to provide a balance by providing food which is familiar but also by giving you an opportunity to try food with a distinctly French flavour too – why not try some snails?

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