The AVF (Accueil des Villes Française) is a French organisation established to help newcomers to an area (French and foreign) find the information and social integration they may need. There are branches throughout France in most of the larger towns. Many arrange activities including conversation classes and children's holiday activities. The AVF can provide practical help and information on your area, in French, and occasionally in English too.

A small subscription fee is required when joining an AVF organisation and this allows for a year's membership. This entitles members to participate in the club's activities.
