About us

Club International is a non-profit making social club, formed in 1998, based in Salies de Bearn in the south west of France. Our membership consists of over 140 members from countries including France, Britain, Germany, Finland, Jamaica, Sweden, Netherlands, Switzerland, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, South Africa, and  Zimbabwe. We are predominantly English speaking

Our aim is to provide newcomers with help to integrate into French life and give them the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas in a friendly atmosphere, although you don’t need to be a newcomer to join us. We welcome those who have settled here permanently, are here on holiday or have a second home in the area. We meet the first and third Monday of every month at the Hotel du Golf in Salies de Bearn at 6.30pm for aperitifs. Our club Library ( English books mainly) is open at various times throughout the month. Our excellently organised monthly walks are extremely popular. In addition we organise events and outings for people to get to know the delights of the area.  We are also involved in community projects when requested.

The Committee strives to provide a wide variety of events and outings.  During the last year events have included a visit to the church at Monein with its spectacular vaulted roof, guided tour of Bayonne, wins and losses at the Pau races, going underground at Grottos, an evening of Fizz and Fun at a Chateau, canoeing on the Gave d’Oloron, a guided tour of Ciboure, taking Segways around Anglet and a Halloween party, we are nothing if not diverse! Special interest groups are also arranged.

 

If you would like to join us, or find out more information, please use the ‘contact us’ page and we’ll be in touch.
