Step outside your tented village at Mimosa watersports centre in France and you’re practically straight onto the long, uncrowded sandy beach, where a thrilling range of watersports awaits you and your secondary school group.
Watch as your students sail a catamaran over the gentle waves in the sun; enjoy some beach games with their friends; test their skills on a sit-on kayak - school trips to the Mediterranean don’t get much better than this!
At Mimosa, our thrilling watersports sessions led by our professional team of RYA approved Instructors are the reason school groups like yours keep coming back. Our first class team will inspire your students on the sea and back on dry land too. There’s plenty to discover within the grounds - your students will benefit from the additional land-based adventure activities we have available – why not try some climbing or abseiling?
The challenge that comes with trying something new is a great way to challenge and motivate your students.

For the ultimate challenge, our watersports in the South of France offer exhilarating once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
In an action-packed week, you and your group will enjoy a packed programme of different challenges on the beautiful Mediterranean sea.
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.
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 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 sat on the beach, enjoy your food with PGL!
