With 'Douce France', France is next door

Douce France, French Language Centre is located in Wadeville, near Nimbin, in the beautiful Northern Rivers region of NSW.

We are a French native family who called Australia home in 2007. Since then, we have gained a valuable teaching experience by working in Australian bilingual schools and with Alliance Française, a worldwide French organisation. 

Our family, the French team


Our house is an unusual sustainable pole house nestled on 5 acres of rainforest and subtropical vegetation. It is a convivial, peaceful and relaxing place. Ideal for games, role-plays and hands-on activities in French!
