Savoir Vivre for Moms

Savoir Vivre for Moms

This is based on a two-week course. The first week we have a Pilgrimage to Holy Land. The second week is at Le Châtelard Academy where mother and daughter can live special moments and courses together here.

Le Châtelard, an institution which specializes in the formation of human values for today’s young woman that’s why we invite moms to participate in a cultural and personal enrichment and renewal, designed especially for them.
